Just the best – We order from Lassi all the time---pretty much since it opened and
have had nothing but great food and service. We are Indian and it is the closest thing
to home cooking out there. If you want Indian restaurant food, it's not the place for you.
The food is clean and delicious--just like home. Delivery is timely considering what one
has to go through for good delivery. We had one very late delivery and the next time we ordered, the owner
had remembered and sent us a dessert on the house!
I wouldn't let one bad day take you away from Lassi.
We went to Lassi on a rainy day, so we were able to sit down, etc. But frankly, I've had better Indian food- better parathas in general. My husband and me also tried the mango and the cardamom lassi- again- I've had much better lassi. On the whole, we were excited before we came to eat there, and left a bit dissapointed.
be prepared to wait for a 2 hour delivery time – after calling for a delivery we were told it wouldn't be long. After we made 3 phone calls and 2 hours later our food turned up cold. Every time we called to follow up on the order we were told it was on it's way. Not once did they bother to call and advise us it was running late, eventually telling us it was out the door but it it didn't arrive until 30 minutes later...but we only live 4 blocks away! We could have picked it up from them, if only they had told us what was really going on.
So nice – I love this place. The food is really delicious and not your typical greasy indian. All the dishes seem to be made w/ care. And the people are incredibly friendly.
Overpriced but worth it... sometimes. – Don't even think of eating in unless you fancy having yuppies wack you in the back with their handbags as they swish in. Food... nothing to write home about. The lassi's however are outstanding. Initially I was deeply dissapointed with the serving size (about the size of a small bodga coffee) and the price (nearly $4) for the small lassi but found that it was so rich that even shared between two people it was almost too much. Worth it as an occasional treat.
great food – can't eat there but they now deliver. The only negative would be a very limited menu selection, especially since the food is very good and you want to go more often.
hole in the wall spot - Good Indian food – This is a cheap and very good Indian place. I recommend you to ask for delivery or take out. The place is too small, but the food is good and cheap if you know what to order (go easy on the Lassis, they are $5 each).
poor food and portions – we found the food to be sub-par, overpriced, and cheap quantities ... extremely dissapointing.
Home-style Indian comfort food at a sliver of a spot on Greenwich. – The Scene
Inside its seven-foot-wide confines, sunny, painted-brick walls and wood-and-copper fixtures keep things homey and neat. And while a narrow wood counter and three stools provide desperation seating, most folks choose to take lunch and dinner to go.
While several of the northern Indian specialties remain on the menu perenially, including the parathas and flavored lassis, most of the main-course dishes change daily. That means you'll have to call ahead or drop by to see if the shahi chicken, dark meat roasted with cilantro and ground nuts, slow-cooked cardamom-laced eggplant, or the tender lamb stew in a heavenly gravy are on the day's chalkboard menu. An order of the goat- or daikon-filled paratha (warm pancake-like flatbreads) and a mango or cardamom lassi (the yogurt-based drink the restaurant is named for) round out a perfectly pleasant, picnic-ready meal.
