All are presented in an attractive way and you can ask for repeats of individual items you like. We have been going here for about 20 years. The service is generally attentive, and they ask preferences for spice level and allergies of each person at the table.. Consistent experience: The appetizers are excellent, well prepared, tasty and authentic. The main dishes and the dessert are so so. Quality and taste varies and several of the items on the last visit were not especially good. They also automatically added a 18% tip for a party of 4, which was a bit annoying since we prefer to tip based on service, and would probably have tipped at that level or higher anyway, given the quality of the service, but did not like to see this automatically added. Over the last 20 years their price has gone from about $20 per person to $34 , perhaps much more of an increase than comparable restaurants. The food quality for the main dishes may also be not quite as good. Suggested strategy: skip the min course and just ask for a second round of appetizers. Incidentally, on the last visit, I asked for a second helping of 2 of the appetizers, and it never came -- the main dish plate was served instead. The reason for the 3 star rating is the relative experience compared to past visits, and also the feeling that this restaurant is now quite overpriced.
Absolutely incredible food. Once again, even for meat eaters, this... Absolutely incredible food. Once again, even for meat eaters, this vegetarian restaurant should not be missed!Every bite fills your mouth with flavour, and the set, all you can eat menu means you get to try everything, which is excellent, as when you find your favourite, you can have as much more as you want.The staff were amazing, and explained what all the dishes were and the service was fast and friendly.Would have been nice to be offered the chance to take dessert course to go though, as our little boy was having a meltdown, though I do understand the "you can't take how your leftovers" policy.
Authentic Indian food experience My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed... Authentic Indian food experience
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the culinary delight as well as the ambience offered by Vatan. The all-you-can-eat buffet offered very good variety, and it was worth the money. This is definitely an upscale restaurant offering a very good service to match it

It's very hard to find the combination of good food, pure vegetarian, nice ambience and traditional Gujarati food specially in Manhattan. And yes, I forgot to mention very friendly customer service. All the employees are always happy and best thing is they don't rush you.
This was our third visit and I will be honest to say that there was nothing you can complain about any of the visit.
Definitely to go place as a repeat customer...!!!
I am Gujarati, and I can say this is authentic... I am Gujarati, and I can say this is authentic Gujarati food! The choice and quality is surprisingly good. I have been here very often - and the only issue I have is that the menu does not change very much. But otherwise highly recommended.
