Went during restaurant week. We were lucky to get in at the last minute (a very early seating). We did not go for the Prix Fix menu, rather opted for getting the mushroom poriyal and the galauti kababs. Both were very good, with nice presentation...More

I could put up with the exorbitant prices for good Indian food that you could get from two dozen other places in New York City for 1/3 of the price if the service were better. Staff often ignores you, bar service is slow and orders...More

This is a relatively new restaurant--only here for the past 8 months. Although it was dark inside (We sat near the window, during day light, so it wasn't too dark.), they have lighted menus and checks. The staff were friendly enough. My daughter loved her...More

This is Indian food with a twist. The butter panner might just be a little too soggy for your taste. But the rotis more than compensate for it. Go for the methi-aloo combinations.

Had dinner in this well decorated small restaurant. We are not well versed in Indian food, and the staff did a good job of walking us through the menu. We had goat and rice with shrimp cooked in a crockery pot covered with baked rice....More

Tulsi features distinctive regional Indian cuisine created by Chef Hemant Mathur, critically acclaimed for his clean, distinct flavors and a master of tandoor cooking - from savory street food and breads to tantalizing vegetable specialties and fragrant curries, to signature tandoor-grilled meats and seafood. Designed for comfort, relaxation and the enjoyment of food, drinks and conversation, the 55-seat dining room and 15-seat bar/lounge reflects modern India with a nod to cultural traditions and motifs. Guests may also enjoy a seven-course Chef's Tasting Menu (also a Chef's Vegetarian Tasting Menu) and bar snacks, as well as a thoughtful list of spice-friendly wines, handcrafted cocktails and beers. "Tulsi" (pronounced TOOL-see) means divine basil.
