Editorial Review – New York chain of Indian restaurants serving seafood, lamb, chicken and vegetarian dishes. This location delivery only.
Bad service – Initially, I liked the food here. But of late there is no consistency in taste. I once asked for malai kofta to go, and the kofta was not done well. The next time I asked them to take care and do the kofta well, and the manager insisted that I try something else because he could not guarantee the taste!!! And he forgot to send samosas with my to go and charged me extra for it!! I have NEVER gone there after that, no matter how close it is to my place. The service is bad too. Do yourself a favot and avoid this place.
Inexpensive, good, solid Indian food – Yum! For someone who used to hate Indian food, Baluchi's has changed my mid. While most would agree that the food here is very Americanized and not too authentic - for me this is a GOOD thing. Finally a curry that I can eat, enjoy and not suffer from gastritis from 3 hours later.
Try the homemade breads. All are GREAT - poori, naan, paratha all FRESH. Also the Ka-Choori appetizer (vegetarian goodness) and the Chicken Makhni (Indian for Butter Chicken, American for FATTENING AS HECK) is delish.
Asif the manager is also a great guy and the service has always been very friendly and accomodating.
