Food is great here! And best of all, you don't have to order - they just bring you a bunch of things that they are cooking that night. And it's all delicious. And it changes every night! I've rarely been served the same thing and we've eaten there a lot! And they are very friendly too.

This place is seriously one of the most interesting I have been to. They do not use any animal products! The food is tasty and I never remembered what I was missing.

I am a burger and fries kind of girl so I was a little nervous about trying this place. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. I didn't have to try to understand the menu since it is pre fixe of the day's specials. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would love to go back here.

Ayurveda is a fabulous place to sit, enjoy and unwind. The food is fantastic. Sitting down and getting served without the hassle or indecision of a menu is great! The food is always amazing, and you can get 2nd and 3rd servings of your favorites. It may be vegetarian, but it is delicious and very filling. Be forewarned, Ayurveda is a quiet little place, so do not go with a large group or plan to have a loud/animated/emotional conversation. Many people go here alone and there's no shame in it! There is usually soothing rhythmic music playing. Go and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Price, Homestyle feel, Flavorful food

Cons: Too many patrons can ruin the ambiance.

The best thing about this vegetarian Indian restaurant is that you don't have to worry about deciding what you want-- they will just bring you the daily assortment of whatever they are serving that day. It is always a delicious and balanced vegetarian meal, and also conforms to the rules of an "Ayurveda" diet which I don't really understand. The "Ayurveda Center" nearby offers massages and other services, which I am curious about but afraid to try.

I try to eat at Ayurveda once a week. Not only is it a great deal, but the food tastes so clean that it can only be good for you. The menu changes every day and I have never been disappointed. My favorite part is the dessert. I never knew vegetarian food could taste so good. Did I mention that you can eat as much as you want? The service is friendly and courteous.

If you're like me who can never make up her mind about what to eat, this is the place for you. The service is excellent and within a few minutes of walking in, you will be presented with the thali of the day that includes several different dishes (including salad, chutney and rice). The meal includes naans as well. The only thing you'll have to order yourself is the accompanying drink and like one of the other reviewers, I recommend the mango lassi, which is really the best one I've had in NYC. While the food is not outstanding, it is consistantly good and does not dissapoint. Also, don't expect much in terms of decor but the place is clean and not cramped like Thali.

Pros: cheap & consistant, friendly service, excellent mango lassi

This place is a gem! Just go in, sit down and be served the lunch time $6.95 (2003) thali-of-the-day with a warm welcoming smile. This very satisfying meal of all the ayurvedic flavors comes with nan bread and a small dessert. The mango lassi is the richest and thickest I have ever tasted.

Pros: Blissful, Balanced, Nice staff

Here's how it works: you walk in, sit down, and have a vegetarian thali (group of little portions of curries) that invariably includes lentiles, a small salad, some rice, some kind of samosa-like pastry, yogurt, rice, and a couple of sauces. The variation is in the 3 kinds of curry that you get. Also served is a basket of roti.

There is nothing else on the menu except for exotic teas and cold beverages, but with a meal this cheap and delightful, who would care?
