Anyone know the name of the new Indian Restaurant on 1st and 62nd?

And if you do, have you dined there?

    1. Ate at Moti last week, and although it was a pleasant envirnoment, the food was just ok. Was a bit dissapointed. Their "famous" butter chicken is really just a regular Tikka Masala. Have been trekking down to Jackson Diner on University Place from the UES on a regular basis. Does not seem to be any decent Indian on the UES.

      1. re: tbone

        I don't order it too frequently since I cook Indo-Pak at home but Om and Maharaja Palace have been more than serviceable for standards like saag paneer or bhuna ghosht.

      2. I had the vegetarian lunch there yesterday and thought everything was really delicious. I look forward to returning. And the decor is really nice with lots of light wood and comfortable chairs.
        (They bring a variety of food to the table and will bring more of anything you ask for. The lunch yesterday included two appetizers, a lentil stew, two mixed veg curries -- one dry and one wet with paneer -- biryani, potato cauliflower curry, bread and gulab j for dessert.)
