The prix-fixe menu offers a smorgasbord of dishes from Gujarat and I really cannot point out one dish that did not taste good. All dishes tasted authentic and had us craving for more.
The waitress explained what each dish was about. While it isn't the cheapest Indian restaurant around, the only other negative I can think of is that we asked our pitcher of water to be replenished, but that never happened until we left the restaurant.

Our server was super friendly and helpful, as she explained everything with love and answered our questions with lots of patience. I generally liked the food, though I didn't realize everything. I'd go back, as it's a fun change from time to time. It may be pricey if you aren't very hungry.

The interior decor is fantastic and the best part is that the it's a prix fixe 4-course menu where you pay one flat price for the ENTIRE MENU! You don't have to worry about choosing; you literally get to sample everything and can request more of one dish if you desire.

Their fix price menu has a plethora of options making for a very filling meal. The village setup is very authentic, even the staff are dressed in traditional Indian clothes. A very unique Indian dining option in NYC

Via the fix price menu one gets to sample such very large variety of flavors. Also the service was really great. While the fix price menu (only option) comes at somewhat high price (plus drinks) - it's money very well spent.
