Fine Indian Restaurant in Union Square

New Delhi was named one of the finest Indian Restaurants in the US by New York Times. Decorated like a Maharajah's private banquet room, the restaurant serves cuisine made from recipes culled from the royal Indian menus dating back 300 to 400 years using the freshest local ingredients. There are many interesting vegetarian and vegan options available.

This is probably the best Indian restaurant that I have ever visited. Having never been to India, I can't comment much on authenticity, but I will say that the vegetarian options are much more interesting than you find at most Indian restaurants in the US: mango mushrooms, Bombay soya nuggets, eggplant tamarind... New Delhi also has a page of more "standard" vegetarian dishes on the menu, like channa masala and navrattan curry.

Another perk is the palatial decor - tall, arched ceilings supported by ornamented columns. The walls are adorned with poetry, paintings and traditional costumes, with plaques explaining their historical significance. The prices are fairly high: $15 for an entree, and rice is NOT included (you can purchase a bowl of rice for an extra $4). However, I found the cost to be reasonable for a delicious meal and fascinating history lesson.
