This Indian restaurant is the real deal. We went for the first time last week and had to g o back a week later. It's that good. The food is amazing, service is great and it is a gem! Try it if you like Indian food and even if you're not sure you do-you'll be happy you did!Try the chicken vindaloo (very spicy!) and the chicken curry...everything is delicious!!

My wife and I wanted to venture out and try something new and Indian Cuisine was top on our list. Paheli Indian Cuisine was close to our house, so we decided to give it a try.When we walked in, the Owner greeted us with a big warm and friendly smile....We mentioned this will be our first time experiencing Indian Cuisine and he assured us we were in for a treat.He walked us to our table and started to help us understand the menu.Next, our waiter came by and also helped us with the many choices by asking us what do we like.... This helped us narrow down what we were about to order. In addition, and to our surprise, the chef came out and greeted us as well!Now, the food.... The food was fabulous! There was such a cornucopia of flavors- the likes I've never experienced before....from spice, to cool flavors, sweet to savory - every appetizer to main course complimented each other so well!I am now hooked and Paheli will be added to my "go to" spots in Wayne and cannot wait to bring friends so they can share in the incredible food and warm hospitality!

Love this place. Very friendly and very authentic flavors. I have dined here twice so far and will be returning again soon. It is BYOB but there is a handy liquor store in the same mall about 100 yards around the corner. Paheli rivals some the best Indian restaurants in NYC in my opinion. Easily the best place I have been to in 30 years in this area.
This restaurant offers most authentic, tasty unique and perfectly spiced Indian food . Everything we had here was delicious and just perfect. Staffs are super friendly and kind to listen and suggest! They arranged outdoor table for us as we had dog ( usually they don’t serve outdoor during noon ).Must visit and highly recommend!
