The food was delicious! I was busy eating to take pictures. Our waiter was patient as I think I asked him a thousand questions with each order. Forgot the name of the cauliflower appetizer, but it was amazing! Ordered all vegetarian dishes and loved them. The mango lasi is delicious!

Service was excellent. Really liked all the dishes we tried, including Fish Tikka, Methi Matar Malai, Aloo Gogi and Dal Makhani. The Chai Mules were a big hit. Comfortable outdoor seating. We plan to go back again very soon.

This is a great place food wise but even more with location. The tables are located under concrete covering so if it rains you can still go out to dinner. Food was amazing . I definitely recommend

I've been to Utsav so many times over the years--usually for a pre-theatre dinner. I have always found the food to be exceptional. This time, due to the on-going crises, I assume, the caliber of everything was simply not the same. The outdoor seating we were given was at the 46th Street end of the terrace, dominated by the overwhelming din if an AC unit from the adjacent building. Also at that end was a sizeable group of homeless people. It was terribly uncomfortable. We asked to have our regular seats moved to the high tabletops. I missed the older, more mature, and more experienced servers from the past. The guys who waited on our table were pleasant but clearly confused. The food was o.k., but just o.k. I really want to support all of the dining establishments which are serving outdoors, but with prices going up and food standards going down, I'll cross Utsav off my list for now.

We went with no expectations, and we were pleasantly surprised, we used to come to this restaurant years ago, and now we will definitely go back, the food was very good, service was very pleasant, the goat biryani was excellent actually every main was very good, the Yellow dal was really exceptional, the Nan was very good but next time I would ask for it without the butter!

This is a good but not great Indian restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty if not exciting. But it is literally next door to the Roundabout Theater, making it a perfect place for pre-theater dinner. I will definitely return for future theater evenings.

We couldn’t have been happier with this restaurant. We enjoyed exploring around the menu and noted a diverse prefix menu. Would go back again in a heartbeat. The service was impeccable. We arrived after it opened and had plenty of time to leisurely complete our meal in a quiet environment.

A great location in the theater district. Definitely not your local Indian restaurant. Food is more gourmet and prices are higher. Because the portions are substantial, sharing dishes makes sense. Diner needs to remember that everything is extra and nearly all dishes come without rice, sides, veggies, chutney, etc. For some, the prix fixed dinner may really be worth it. Highly recommend the mango mousse for dessert!

Very good Indian restaurant, the majority of the customers present were Indian which is a good guarantee of quality. Just the boss who was a little too eager to take the order, now in NYC people are faster. The prices are Manathan's prices.

We chose Utsav based on recommendations from relatives. Located in the heart of midtown, it has a warm friendly atmosphere. The dining area is conveniently located a floor above the cozy welcoming bar in the main floor.
The menu offers a change from standard Indian fare, retaining, with twists, the essential staples. To start off, the tandoori broccoli, corn & mango bhel, crispy cauliflower were outstanding. Amongst the delectable entrees, Chicken Bharta, Goa shrimp and sea bass stood out.
A superb finish with deserts left us over satiated. For a delightful surprise, try creme brûlée' - and its concealed GulabJamun inside.... Congratulations to Nandita Khanna , her chef & staff !!

In my view slightly overpriced liquor and glass of wine. Veg seekh kabab was tasteless. But all other items (appetizers, dals, lassi, biryani, naan, paratha, and three different subjis) had great finger licking authentic Indian taste.

Bottom line, tasty food with good service at reasonable price. I will try again but will not hesitate to return items that do not match menu-description.
