Chola Indian

Chola 232 East 58th Street, New York, NY opened in 1998 and after eight years, still lives up to its initial introduction by Ruth Reichl, of New York Times, under the headline: “An Indian restaurant breaks the mold.” Its extensive and “eclectic” menu spans all of India’s regions. The atmosphere is elegant and inviting, and the service, unassuming and attentive.

If your knowledge of Indian food is limited to the curry cafeterias of East Sixth Street, it’s time to step up your game. Chola, one of the best restaurants in New York, highlights India’s diverse regional cuisine, including Mughal, Punjabi, Kerala and Kamataka. Stunning fresh ingredients like coriander, coconut, mint and banana leaves bring this elaborate menu to life. Fire up your taste buds with Vindaloo specialties from Goa, or find out how tender and delicious clay-oven-cooked meats can be made with tandoori specials. Fourteen different breads, plus a wide variety of meat and vegetable appetizers round out the irresistible options.

For exceptional Indian food, choose Chola, and prepare to be impressed.

    Some of the best Indian food I've had in NYC. Plentiful and lots of nice surprise side dishes that came with the dinner special.

    The food is so good that I'm not sure how long it took to get here. Can't remember anything prior to my first bite of heaven. I'm in another world.
