The staff was rude and despite being told by groupon that they would honor our groupon they didn't. The drinks were watered down, the chicken hard and the noodles tasted like they dropped a while bottle of black pepper in them. I do not recommend this place. Horrible food, drinks and service.

I liked the way the old menu had heat ratings for the different dishes. Some dishes need to come with a warning label because of the spice level.

It sucked. The quality has definitely changed. It went from being our favorite restaurant to something we will never return to.

Customer service was terrible. They did not want to honor Groupon reservations, claimed they had no record of them. This happened to me and two grroups behind me. Will never go there again and suggest that you not associate yourself whth them again.

Confusing procedure of normally not taking reservations after 7:30pm, but requiring one if using the Groupon. I suggest clarifying this in the fine-print (rather than just giving the one-liner "Reservation Required") and debriefing your staff so they can mention it when someone calls in to make a reservation. Additionally, it seems like you are understaffed and overcrowded. The staff did not revisit our table after the initial seating until about 15 minutes later, not even to bring us water. They also could not adequately reach our table to remove/place plates or refill our water. Lastly, we were not given new plates for our entrees, standard practice when switched from appetizers.

From Our Editors

You'd expect a marriage of Indian and Chinese cuisine to produce tangy, delectable offspring—though you might not have predicted the lollipops. Still, chicken lollipops are a staple of Chinese Mirch's wide-reaching menu, described as an ideal treat for spice-seekers in a 2004 New York Times feature. The article highlights the morsels of red chilis that speckle the chicken's crispy batter, which is but one example of "the kitchen's considerable skill at deep-frying." The same talent is showcased in the gobi Manchurian, a mix of cauliflower florets and seasoning, as well as in the momos: Tibetan dumplings stuffed with meat or veggies, served onsite or from the restaurant's wandering food truck.

Whether your dish is prepped dry or with zesty Manchurian sauce, fiery flavor seems to take center stage. In fact, the chili chicken in gravy earned a spot on Time Out New York's list of the City's Spiciest Dishes for the "slowly intensifying blister" of its green bird's-eye peppers. The blend of Indian, Cantonese, Hakka, and Sichuan culinary styles also adapts to suit more sensitive palates without forcing patrons to substitute fire extinguishers for salt shakers. Behind the scenes, chefs refrain from adding MSG or preservatives to their plates, and they craft the majority of their entrees from scratch. This elemental approach is in line with owner Vik Lulla's upbringing in Bangalore, India, where he learned to prioritize freshness and innovation when brainstorming his signature fusion dishes.
