“The atmosphere was nice and clean look and a good atmosphere.”
“The bartender makes a pretty wicked Cosmo, and the desserts are just delish.”
“The only negative thing I have to say is that the waiter was visibly annoyed during one of our visits, and tried to push expensive appetizers and drinks on us.”
“Clearly they are not familiar with what good Indian food is supposed to taste like.”
“The whole menu is excellent, but my particular favorites are the lentil salad appetizer (like nothing you've ever had) and anything from the tandoori grill.”
“Surya is an example of how a great small restaurant should be.”
“highly recommend this restaurant and definitely would go back again.”
“The service was unbelievably bad.”
“The specialty drinks are quite good but, I would stay away from the wine which is overpriced.”
“the service was slow took ten mins to get me a glass of water.”
Disappointed in this restaurant. A group of friends and I reserved a table and went together. The bill came up to about 200, and around a group of six people, that's pretty decent. We gave them about 9 dollar tip but then while we were about to leave, they stopped us and told us that people typically give 15-20%. Now, we're a bunch of teenagers, so I don't think we should've given so much tip, especially for an okay service, but for courtesy, we paid about $30 tip in total. We're not happy and we are never coming back. The food was good, but service was eh.
Best Indian Restuarant In the City. I've been to many restaurants in NYC and I think this was the best one so far. Food was good, if you like spicy food you will be happy. Drinks are good and the ambiance is great. You should try the desert if you never had them. The value is great for the food you eat. Simply the best.
Amazing Food and Serice, Simply Amazing. It was great, I had a great time and the food was amazing. The people there are passionate and it really is the best Indian food in the city, probably the world. And I eat Indian food regularly, it is authentic, delicious, and greatly served. You must go any age group, bring the kids, family, party, reservations, and the hospitality is amazing.
Good food, good service.. This is one of the best restaurants in the city in terms of ambiance and service. The food was good, we were seated out in the garden and were tended to very well. Visited this place 3 years ago and am glad to see theyre still the same. The food was well cooked, I loved the eggpland and potato dish while my wife had the goat. Good food. Will def be back when im in the city again.
Took three bites and threw it away. Still looking for a good take out place in the west village. I miss Indus Valley on the UWS.
Fantastic!. We love Indian food, but don't like the cheesy atmospheres that come along with most "authentic" Indian restaurants. The owners of Surya have finally succeeded in creating a restaurant with outstanding Indian food, and a trendy, swank atmosphere. The cocktails are fantastic, and we really enjoyed the outdoor seating. All of the ingredients tasted extremely fresh, and they used all white meat chicken in the chicken dishes. They have a ton of choices (both vegeterian and non-vegeterian) on the menu, and I can't wait to try all of them! The appetizer selection was also tremendous, and we loved the Onion Bhatias. We have been back at least once every 2 weeks since our first visit, and have not been disappointed. The only negative thing I have to say is that the waiter was visibly annoyed during one of our visits, and tried to push expensive appetizers and drinks on us. Other than that, every experience was fantastic.
food is bad, service is horrible.
went in on a relatively slow night and it still took 45 minutes to get our food. we were about to leave when it finally got there. we saw 3 other tables who were seated after us get their food before us. the head waiter refused to acknowledge a mistake - he insisted that "there were a lot of tables tonight" - an odd assertion given that the restaurant was half empty.
when the food got there, the potatoes in the sag aloo were boiled and flavorless, the spinach tasted like it had been frozen, and the lentils barely had any flavor. we won't be back.
You must visit to beleive it , THE BEST EVER.
Well to begin with this is an exceptional indian restaurant I have ever visited .And it was weekend buffet .
Well pepared chiken tikka masala an excellent blend of spices and cream , fresh lemon and spiced flavoured tandoori chicken and of course the channa saag, the cauliflower potatoes, the black daal everythig was far superior than any other restaurant in midtown, while feeling the freshness of the vegetable.I am not even from this neighborhood and not even an Inidan but I am enjoying indian food for the last eight years and believe me this is one of the finest I have discovered and the waiter Gomes was excellent in explaining me each and every item displayed in the buffet including the dssert mango Halwas which was just right even a diabetic patient could enjoy it . I do not believe with the previous reviews where the restarurant was criticized for food and service. Even the Zagat 2008 has appreciated the food and service of this cozy restaurant . Come see it for your self.
Thank you Surya.Wish you good luck.
Love, Love, Love the food. I went to Surya on Sunday after reading their review in the Zagat. Wow, am I glad I did, i've never tasted Indian food like this before. It was so refreshing to eat food like Surya's. It's so light and fresh on your taste buds. I just want to say the wait staff was so sweet and helpful. I started out with the baby lamb chops which melted in my mouth. I than ate salmon with sprouted lentils which was absolutely delicious. I really enjoyed the mango masala which is a cocktail. I'm really surprised with one of the reviews that gave Surya a one star and wrote such bad things. I read that review when I was posting this one, and I think that person has no idea what Indian food should taste like. I don't want the strong flavours that typical Indian restaurants have, that's why I love Surya's food and I can't wait to go back.
