"Great food, subtle flavors and gracious service led by the kindness of Ajay and his staff leaving you wanting to come back for more. There just are not that many really, really good local Indian restaurants on the UES, but, finally, there is Papadam. I'll be back!!"

"We dined at Papadam on Christmas Eve. As someone who has lived in India for many years, I can say that this is the best Indian food I've experienced in NYC. Everything was carefully prepared with the freshest ingredients and spices, a true delight for the palate. And the menu has a wonderful diversity of dishes, from Goan fish curry to the aromatic dishes of northern Kashmir. The owners could not have been more charming and friendly, and took a personal interest in all of their guests. We felt as if we had been transported to a dinner among close friends in New Delhi, which certainly lit up our holiday! Will definitely return."

"The ambience is warm and the owners very nice and accommodating. The food was delicious and plentiful. Also, even though it isn't a kid restaurant my young children really like the food. The wait staff was efficient and very nice."

"What a wonderful restaurant. Some of the best Indian food I've had in the City. And the service was first rate. The restaurant was rather empty on a weekday evening - must be mainly takeout. Give this restaurant a try. You will not be disappointed."

"Have been here multiple times, each time food is wonderful and the service is even better. This is a husband-wife run restaurant, and they truly care about their guests. The atmosphere feels higher-end (white table clothes, dark mood lighting), but still comfortable. The wine list is not notable. But, the food selection is excellent, delicious, and nicely presented. There could be a few more pieces in some of the chicken dishes like the tikka masala and saag, but it's so yummy. Don't hesitate to go here!"
