I will be visiting nyc soon and would like have Indian food. Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced Indian restaurant.

  1. Can you be more specific about price?

    1. Not only price, type of food (there are very different regional Indian cuisines, though most serve North Indian/Punjabi Mughlai restaurant cuisine), preferred area, etc.

      There have been a number of recent threads on Indian food.

      If you're not looking for all vegetarian and reasonable is about $30 with beer I'd start with Cafe Spice (multi-regional). The one in the village tends to be better than midtown.

      Even more reasonable is to do a lunch buffet at one of the upscale midtown places, usually about $13.95. Chola has had raves here, but I haven't tried it yet. I like Bay Leaf, but there have been dissents. Utsav seems to have more fans than Bay Leaf. Stay away from Bombay Palace.

        I second the lunch buffet idea. Let me add Diwan on E 48th Street.

      2. I would not suggest Cafe Spice, but I love Bay Leaf and Utsav both. My favorite is Tamarind on 22nd.

          Tamarind is beautiful, and fabulous! Upscale and a bit pricey, worth it.
