Ashoka Upper East Side

Contrary to common belief, not all Indian dishes are curries. However, “curry” has become a catch-all name for any spice-based meat or vegetable dish with a sauce. Curries can be watery, dry, red, green, hot, or really, really hot—it’s completely up to the chef in charge. In fact, a basic chicken curry is one of the simplest things to start with when first experimenting with Indian cooking. Serve it with a side of dal (a stew made of lentils, peas, or beans) and some roti (a tortilla-like wheat flat bread) and you’ll feel as if you’re halfway around the world, Come check out al-carte menu and local's favorite Vegeterian and Non-Veterinarian dishes.

"Loved the atmosphere and food was amazingly good. Atmosphere was great. Server was really good. A little bit disappointed with prices"



" Our last night in NYC and something special needed. As Brits, it had to be Indian, and this one was only a few blocks walk. We booked a table, as the restaurant is quite small. The service was impeccable and the menu quite British-looking, we recognized most of the dishes! I had Lamb Vindaloo and my friend chose a Paneer Dish, which she couldn't get where we live in France, and very rarely even in England. Both were very tasty, copious and good value. Only downside was the jazz band playing in the background. In an Indian restaurant? Well, this is New York after all. There has to be a story to tell! "
