The Perfect start to a perfect evening! – Decided to stop by this new spot on the Bowery on Friday for dinner! 1st The welcome I recieved and the attention I recieved from the staff was the best I have seen in NYC in a while. The hospitality industry has been dead for a while with everyone trying to be something they are not, but here its all about sevice and quality!!!! The drinks were well made and tasted very well. The food was simply beautiful! The lamb Tagine melted in my mouth. The service was excellent and out waitress new everything on the menu which they are supposed to do in NY. The decor was authentic and the prices reasonable. Well done Katra you made my evening nice!
A Nice Change From The Big Clubs – Had my birthday in Katra last night and it was wonderful. The food was great and when the owner found out it was my birthday he bought me a bottle of Champagne. I like this place as the crowd was mixed and alot of fun. Even when we were annoyed by some drunk guy he was quickly escorted out. The music was fun with a great mix of Hip-Hop, Middle Eastern Hip-Hop, Euro and World. This was a fun night and well worth a visit. Thanks Riaz for setting me up here.
Best Birthday Ever – This is a great new spot on the Bowery. They took care of me with free champagne and all my friends had a great time. Staff are wonderful and there is an S in service. I would deffinately recommend this place. Thanks guys and the wonderful Irish owner!

What a Great Night Out! – Had a party on Sat in Katra with 40 people and nearly 75 turned up. There was no problem with that from Katra and by far they took great care of us. We recieved a bottle of Champ on the house and they did not force us to get bottles for the tables we took up. We did buy two bottles when it got packed so as to skip the line at the bar and we were offered one on the house. I found the food to be excellent and it is tapas style. The drinks were amazing and fresh. The highest price drink was $13 which was the amazing Lychee Martini. I really enjoyed Katra as there was no in between the lines. I got what I asked for and more. P.S I thought the last review was false because myself and my friends have been there four times now and have seen nothing like what the last reviewer said. Sorry but you must have not been able to get in!!!!
Great – Fantastic spot. Warm, friendly service, great specialty drinks, and wonderful ambiance.
Oh so nice! – Had a party there on Thurs night and the manger gave us a HH for the whole party. The staff were excellent and the food of the wall. What a great find in the Bowery. The decor is warm and relaxing and the music is worldly. This place is going to the place to go soon and I am so happy I found it. I will be telling all my girl friends oh and there is no big moody doorman or ropes. This place has neighbourhood lounge written all over it
