Good indian food near times square?

I'm taking my sister to manhattan for a few days and she loves indian food (she got hooked on it while living in London).

We're staying in near times square so it would be idea to walk some where for a good indian meal...but i'll take suggestions. If they have live entertainment, that's a plus but I want the food to be the star...

    I third Utsav. The lunch special is affordable and the food is very tasty.

    I would recommend skipping Copper Chimney. The environment is pretty but the food is nothing special and the prices are not cheap. The lamb that I had there was tough and lacked flavor.

    If you want to leave the Times Square area, I would suggest Brick Lane Curry House. It's British style Indian food and is quite good.

      Second Utsav. Good, albeit slightly pricey, for the area.

          Copper Chimney on 28th btwn Lex and Park does great indian and on a nice day you can definitely walk there from times square.

            Utsav (http://www.utsavny.com/) is quite good. It's not the most spectacular, but it's near Times Square and is pretty good quality.
