About this business
From Our Editors
Critically praised, India on the Hudson is one of Hoboken's flagship Indian restaurants, serving traditional Indian cuisine in an elegant environment since 1994. Wake up napping taste buds with lamb samosas ($7) or veggie pakoras ($5) before diving thumbs first into one of the menu's myriad entrees. Challenge a dinner mate to a fencing match with the tandoori ginger shrimp ($18) or chicken tikka kabab ($13), both marinated in yogurt and cooked in a charcoal-fired clay oven. Street-food-inspired kathi wraps nestle your choice of lamb, chicken, or vegetables in a cozy blanket of Naan and are served alongside basmati rice, mango chutney, and soothing cucumber raita ($10–$14). Curry options abound, such as bhuna mutton, a mélange of slow-cooked goat and herbs ($15), and paneer makhani, cubes of fresh cheese swimming laps in tomato and bell pepper sauce ($10). For dessert, gulab jamuns combine the doughy sweetness of dumplings with the syrupy sweetness of cardamom syrup ($4). The restaurant's ambience is luxurious but relaxed, with pale green and ivory walls, embroidered silk art, and white table linens.
