"Yes, the entryway is unconventional. Yes, you may find yourself seated right next to the fire escape. Yes, the walls are a dark pink. And yes, you should eat there. Everything we ordered was excellent: samosas (not too doughy, with generous fillings), lamb biryani, shrimp malai, and the standard chicken tandoori and chicken tikka masala. Very cheerful and confident service from our waiter. Quite a few groups on a Friday night, but the noise level wasn't distractingly high. If you are seated near the window, the second-floor location makes the restaurant feel somewhat removed from the city's hustle and bustle -- it feels like a nice retreat."

"The restaurant opened at noon and was packed a half-hour later. The decor is simple, relaxing, and tasteful: wooden beams, bulbs on cords, vintage dishes, white tables. The wait staff is cordial and the food comes surprisingly (but not inappropriately) fast! The menu is full of interesting choices. We had the tuna sashimi (excellent), crab toast (good), hake (a little pedestrian), and mackerel (subtle and delicious). The house-made caramel ice cream has the perfect amount of saltiness; the grape tart was too too sweet. The juice and soda selection is awesome. Try the apple and ginger juice, or the cherry-citrus soda. Overall, another wonderful and memorable experience at a Jean-Georges joint."

"This is a very compact restaurant attached to a small Best Western hotel. Nothing too inventive on the menu -- mostly standard pasta dishes -- but the offerings are well-prepared and delicious. Portion sizes are just right. Tables are small and close together, and at peak lunch hour you have to strain to hear your dining companion. Service is friendly and non-intrusive. All around, a good experience."
