It's on 5th ave and 11th St. We went there for lunch last week. Everything is half price until 4pm if you eat in. My husband got lamb vindaloo, asked for it spicy, I got the tandori mixed grill and we spilt the onion nan. I don't know how authentic it is, as our entire indian food experience is from e6th St., but he thought the lamb was much higher quality than he ever had, I thought that the sauce was just medium hot. The mixed grill was more highly spiced than any tandori I'd ever had. (I liked that) Everything was perfectly cooked and juicy. It was also huge, included a chicken leg quarter, chicken tika, some other white meat marinated chicked, a few chunks of lamb, a few chunks of beef, three pieces of fish, one was salmon and two ground lamb kababs that were 7 inches long apiece. Great value even at the full price. The onion nan was fresh and stuffed with onions. Judging by the amount of time it took to get our food, everything was freshly made to order. We also got papadums and they seemed freshly made also - warm and not perfectly straight, though not as highly spiced as others I've had. Everything comes with mango chutney, we had to ask for the other sauces like the green, (coriander,mint?), and the tamirind which were brought together. We also asked for onion chutney which was pretty good if a little red. Of course, it was far too much to finish, so we boxed up half of my mixed grill, half the bread and some rice and had it for lunch the next day.
