Best Chicken Korma in the Country – This is my favorite Indian restaurant in town, possibly the best chicken Korma in North America (and I've tried several others). I agree with some of the other opinions here regarding poor service, attitude etc. but in my opinion the unparalleled korma secret recipe by itself trumps all else. It's worth the suffering ;o) unless some other place opens up with the same recipe and better service! New India beware ...
Worst Food and Worst Service in Columbus, OH – When we went there, there was no warm welcome and the service is horrible. They behave as if they give the food for free. If the quality of food is good, I can compromise on service but the food quality is also not good and the taste is not Indian. In the Indian restaurent I was for Indian taste but after paying hefty money for the worst food, I came out with bad memories..
Poor Service – The Restaurant seems to be just OK considering the fact that there are other better Indian restaurants in and around Dublin. The service is really bad, no promptness.. if u request a change in the menu the waitresses stare at you like you have broken the law or something. Food taste is below average. No frequent water fills, ambience is not good..no indian music in the background...i wonder why certain indian restaurants are poor in their service..waitresses not pleasant ..seem that they r working forcefully..
not a good restaurant..try something else..
Smokey shiraz – The wine seemed a bit smokey. We found the tip of a cigarette on the bottom of the wine glass. The food was forgetable; runny curry, burned nan and average tandori. Worst of all, we both have intestinal distress today the day after New India. Hmmm, could there be a connetcion? I won't give it another chance. The help wasn't rude just a bit odd and aloof. I still can't get the cigarette flavor out of my mouth and I have brushed my teeth and gargled many times. Seems a bit unsanitary, using a customers wine glass for an ashtray.
PD – We went to this restuarant on a saturday at around 2.30pm.As expectedly you think you will get a warm welcome with smiling face, but no it was a very depressing welcome and to add up to that the table manners were diappointing too.As when the water was served the spoons and the handtowel were all over the place with no courtesy to be arrange it .
After such a start it is difficult to enjoy any food even if the chef has put all his efforts in the cooking.
when asked for such a attitude towards coustmer the reply given wasnot satisfying.
It makes it diffcult to suggest such venues.
I really should have listened to those who is not in favor of this restaurant – My husband and I wanted to try something new and found this restaurant on city search; decided to go despite the fact that there are some negative reviews. The lunch buffet is about $10/ person and the food is ok until my husband found three short curly hairs in the bread...
Fantastic Indian food – This is my favorite Indian restaurant, and I have never had a bad experience here. You are seated promptly, you don't wait long for your order, and the food is always good. I frequently introduce people here who have never had Indian food, and they always want to come back. The samosas, the naans, and the mango pudding are all excellent, and I think they have by far the best Chicken Tikki Masala in town. The prices are reasonable, and I don't see them skimp on the quality of food. I've been to many inferior Indian restaurants that charge more for chicken dishes, while using cheaper cuts of meat. I have heard a few people complain that the staff is not particularly friendly, but I have had pleasant dealings with them for years. The manager knows my order the minute I walk in the door, and brings me my soda immediately. They are very accomodating to special instructions. I think this perception is more to do with shyness and/or the language barrier. They more than make up for this with the speedy service and wonderful food. I highly recommend this restaurant, particularly for those wanting to try Indian cuisine for the first time.
Extremely rude & unfriendly management – We had been there twice for dinner as the food was ok there. But, we really had the worst experience there..The management spoke very rudely. They never gave side dishes like raita which is common in other Indian restaurants ..& when we asked for it they just got it & bangged it on our table. I would never ever recommend it to anyone.
Hottest Indian food in town – If you're a curry lover like me, you can't get it any spicier than new india, however for those that prefer lighter fare, they make it to your liking. If you do enjoy the spicy food however, skip the lunch buffet because it is all very mild to appease the masses. The service is prompt and efficient, but not very friendly. In my opinion it's very much like the soup natzi (wouldn't let me spell it correctly) on Seinfeld, but that's another reason I love to go there, as strange as that may sound.
I DON'T AGREE WIT NE/1 THAT SAYS THIS IS NOT A GREAT INDIAN RESTAURANT!!! – NEW INDIA HAS EVERYTHING U WANT FROM A RESTAURANT! IT HAS GREAT SERVICE, FOOD, AND FABULOUS STAFF!! I LOOK FORWARD TO GOING THERE AND HIGHY RECOMEND GIVIGN THE PLACE A SHOT!! THEY LET U USE THE ENTERTAINMETN CARD A SECOND TIME FOR $7 OFF THE NEXT TIME....BECAUSE THE ENTERTAINMENT BOOK MADE AN ERROR OF SAYING $12 AND THEY FEEL BAD SO THEY LET YOU USE IT AGAIN WHICH IS AWESOME AND SHOWS YOU HOW NICE THE PLACE IS!!! I LOVE THIS PLACE AND I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK AGAIN =] (SOME FOOD RECOMENDATIONS ARE CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA, SAAG PANEER, AND THE GARLIC NAAN BREAD!!!)
