We visited this place as a couple during our NY stay as upon an internet search it came up highly rated and local to our hotel.
There was a majority of Indian staff and customers, which we found quite promising and raised our expectations of quality Indian cuisine.
The food was served promptly by attentive waiters.
We had a seek kebab starter and a chicken tikka starter because we didn’t want to be too adventurous and buy something we weren’t sure we would like. They were beautiful, cooked to perfection and tasty.
The mains came quickly after our starter plates were taken, we had between us a Ludhiana curry and a konkan shrimp curry. The Ludhiana was a chicken curry which was tasty and well-cooked. The konkan shrimp curry was surprisingly overly peppery which was a shame because it was otherwise well-cooked with nice prawns in it. I couldn’t finish it because the pepperyness took over. The rice was as good as rice gets.
We ordered the trio of ice cream as dessert to share, it came with a scoop of coconut, pistachio and a scoop of guava ice cream which looked and sounded beautiful. I love different ice cream flavours and they were lovely but for some strange reason the guava ice cream was incredibly salty... it was a strange experience and I’m not sure if it was meant to be that way.
I would go again and try their other dishes.

I have had takeouts before and when out of town friends visiting with their parents from India asked for an Indian restaurant recommendation, I needed to up my game and so I suggested that they go to Pippali. The food is excellent and my friends really enjoyed the meal. Service is very slow though. The workers were talking among themselves in the kitchen area. I don't know why it is so, but service in Indian restaurants in New York leave a lot to be desired. Especially when you compare them to other establishments. But the food here is fantastic.

This is on 27th St where there are a lot of Indian restaurants.
Nice atmosphere with a lot of Indian people which I thought was a good sign. Service was good and friendly and prices are reasonable specially considering the size of the servings, what I ordered would have easily been enough for 2.
Recommended!!!

Reservation for two on a Friday at 7 PM we were greeted and seated immediately. Before we had time to open our menus the waitress appeared to take our order. She returned at least 3 times in the space of perhaps 5 minutes We did finally decide on 3 dishes The Aloo Samosa Chatt appetizer which was delicious and different, the Kerela Kalan vegetable entree equally delicious and the Goa Vindaloo which we found tough and would not recommend. Our water glasses were abundantly refilled without asking however the wait staff attempted to clear our table before we had completed eating. If you are not assertive this is not the place to go for delicious food. . .
