Proud to be Indian – Where the ideas came from for Indian food like this i do not know but brilliant. Go there and see is all I can say. Organic, authentic and great. Cute personell also. Must go
the best indian food in new york city – I had dinner at ada about a week ago with my girlfriend. I must say that i had some of the best service
in this restaurant than i expected. The food was fantastic and the service was perfect. My girlfriend who is a chef by profession was amazed by the food. It actually impressed her which is hard to accompish with food at least. We spoke with our server and ask for something special, he went into the kitchen and came out with a tasting menu recommended by the chef. Our menu consisted of 3 appetizer that were tendorri vegies, crab malabar, and cilantro prawns. The main course consisted of 2 dishes, for the first entree course we had lobster and the second was gingermint lamb chops. After having this amazing dinner which i highly recommend to anyone is that the waiter informed us that all meats in the restaurant was organic i was very imprerssed by this. Also I ask that waiter if I could meet the Chef and I did not only meet the chef I had a tour of the whole restaurant. For the record it was spot less. In my opinion this is one Indian restaurant that you must visit.
awful service, so-so food – my girlfriend and i recently went to Ada and all we have to say is, "over-rated! over-rated!" the service, was literally, to die for -- meaning we had to wait an obscenely long time to receive: (1) our menus; (2) our drinks; (3) our appetizers; and then finally (4) our food. to add insult to injury, the restaurant was less than half full on a Wednesday night so it's not like the wait staff was slammed. to really drive home how much we were neglected, our waiter forgot about the desserts we ordered and simply brought us our check after our main entrees. when we told him we never got our dessert, he brought out the wrong ones (which, to his credit, he quickly replaced). as far as the quality of the food goes, i was umimpressed. the portions are skimpy and the sauces unimaginitive. given the price of dining here, we were very disappointed and won't be going back anytime soon.
Excellent – Recently had a small gathering in the dining area upstairs...was quite impressed by the service and food. Usually have sleepless night after eating commercially prepared food, this was smooth. Reccomend the food, and appreciated the service provided by the staff.
A French-Indian combo proves that light isn't always right. – The Scene
Subtlety has its place in any good restaurant, but French-Indian fusionist Ada may be the exception. White on white dominates the decor--take away the familiar sitar and tabla soundtrack and Ada could easily pass for an old-line French restaurant. The overall effect is comfortable, but inscrutably bland.
It's Indian with a French touch, aimed at rarification, about softening the edges of Indian food. In dishes like salmon tikka, lamb stew and ginger lamb chops, rich spicing takes a back seat to prim presentation. It's not a case of faulty execution; it's a question of whether the French influence adds anything substantive to the equation.
Very pleasant experience – We dined here late and I was so impressed by their patience not rushing us out even though the staff has fled already, our waiter even graciously offered me capuccino. The food was wonderful (I had the ginger mint lamb, very tender). You try it too!
Great Indian Food – The Food and Service was great. My Husband surprised me for our anniversary and the experience was great. The Food definetely had a unique taste. I liked the Indian/French Fusion touch. Highly recommend this to anyone.
