I've been a loyal customer of Kismat since I moved to Washington Heights over 25 years ago.The food is always consistently good (and very easy on the pocketbook!) and service is warm and friendly. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. I love the salmon tandoori, seafood kurma, lamb vindaloo, and spinach/lentil patty appetizer. Kismat is what made this neighborhood liveable for me in the early 1990s and continues to be my go-to restaurant for celebrating significant milestones, birthdays, and even Valentine's Day. Thank you, Kismat, for always being there for us, and staying the same while the neighborhood keeps changing. You are like family. Fingers crossed for your expansion and also your new restaurant near City College!
They have improved! Nice atmosphere and food has gotten better. Try the goat. Wish they had black dal instead of yellow.
Thoroughly mediocre. Somehow their location near City College is better but only just.
It's amazing food! I had never eaten Indian food... this place is the right place.
Tandoori dinner for two $42 is awesome! Such a delicious deal!
My favorite Indian place in the city north of the 30s
Fantastically fresh and tasteful Indian.
The vegetable samosa's are soo yummy!
Best garlic naan ever!
