Vicky and Bukhara did an excellent job catering our Sangeet and Wedding Reception. Vicky was an integral part of planning the menu for both events. The food turned out perfectly and the presentation was on point. We would highly recommend Vicky to anyone and we will definitely be using Bukhara in the future!

Everyone is still talking about the fresh Jalebi! :)

Using Bukhara Grill as a wedding caterer for an Indian wedding is a no brainer. You will get great food at a reasonable price. Raja was an absolute delight to work with. We used a number of stations and there were no lines at our 450 person event. Raja knows how to set up a space to keep the people traffic flowing. And, Raja also set up our dessert stations and did a fabulous job at that as well. Look, there are a few wedding caterers out there that people use in NY/NJ area. You have Mogul, Flavors, Akbar and none of them are as good as Bukhara. The food is as good as it is in the actual restaurant.

We were so fortunate for all our amazing vendors that night, but my guests could not stop raving about the catering. First off, Raja from Bukhara Grill is very professional and knowledgeable. The first time we met with him, we could tell we would be in very good hands. He is very responsive, patient and will answer any questions we had. He also makes great suggestions for any work arounds, if needed. At the tasting, we were blown away by the quality and variety of the food! Right when we left the tasting, we knew immediately that we wanted to book, not only would they provide great service, but they were all great people. Throughout the process, Raja was very easy to work with and responded very quickly through email/phone. At the wedding, the food was a hit amongst all. The best part was that even our parents and elder relatives were raving about the food.

Thank you again Bukhara Grill for all your services.

The word AMAZING is quite the understatement. Your wedding is only as good as the food that's served and Bukhara Grill is hands down, the best Indian restaurant and catering company out there. If you live in the tri-state area, you're even more lucky as you can even frequent their restaurant which is conveniently tucked away on 49th Street.

My main contact was Raja Jhanjee and from the instant we met, till present day, we had/have an amazing relationship. Like most brides & grooms, my fiancé (at the time) and I questioned everything - and trust was a big issue. Raja calmed our nerves, was super helpful with all of his suggestions and promised me that he himself would attend our event to ensure everything ran smoothly. We met a couple of times at his restaurant in NY and he even accommodated another tasting with our big family, which was a plus for us as it helped everyone on both sides feel involved. He was patient and kind and did I mention patient? We're so lucky to have had Bukhara Grill cater as the food, till this day, is the main thing people rant and rave about regarding our wedding. He made our wedding event extraordinary with delightful offerings from apps to dessert - everyone left full and satisfied - not to mention, happy.

If I could rewind the hands in time and I'd go back to our wedding day so I could work with the most pleasant vendor. But with his new endeavor minutes away from my parents house in NJ, I’m sure I will be experiencing Bukhara Grill delights time and time again in the near future.

If you're looking for the best of the best indian caterer, look no further.

Raja and Bukhara - I simply cannot thank you enough.

Once again, Bukhara Grill did the catering for us and it was superb! This time it was the most important event for us so far...our son's engagement party in CT.
Raja and Vicky were reliable, cheerful and available to make it a truly memorable experience. The staff that was there for catering was polite, professional and made our guests very comfortable. So many of our guests remarked how much they enjoyed the presentation and the caring services provided by you that day. Many of them had Indian food for the first time and fell in love with the cuisine! I know it takes a whole lot of team play and hard work to make it "Just Perfect" and you did it again. Please extend our thanks to the whole team and THANK YOU!

Bukhara Grill was one of the best vendors at our wedding. The food was absolutely spectacular. People are still talking about it 7 months later. The menu was incredibly flexible and we were able to customize every menu, from hors d'oeuvres to dinner to dessert, and were even able to select the desired spice level of the dinner items! The level of service was also outstanding on the actual day. My only concern in advance of the wedding was the responsiveness of Bukhara to the venue contact, but in the end everything worked out perfectly. We're so thankful that we used Bukhara Grill for our wedding!

Amazing food by Bukhara Grill. Everyone at the wedding reception enjoyed and raved about the food. So glad we went with them instead of local catering. They had so many menu options for selection. The cocktail hour food menu was so grand, everyone thought it was dinner. Mr. Raja and Mr. Vicky personally took charge for the event with great professionalism. I will surely recommend them to anyone.

Bukhara Grill was the BEST! We worked with Raja Jhanjee and he accommodated all of our needs. Our original caterer tried to dissuade us from a Family Style reception dinner which we were intent on. We decided to change our caterer 10 days prior to the wedding. When we spoke to Raja he was confident, professional and gave us a lot of options. On the day of the wedding he was present at the event and in total control. The ceremony ended a bit early and we asked him to start the cocktail hour early which he did immediately. He texted my husband during the cocktail hour with photos of the party to assure us that everyone was eating well and enjoying themselves. All of our guests loved the food especially the cocktail hour. The presentation was classy and the staff looked sharp in their uniforms. The traditional Indian copper bowls for family style dinner added a nice touch. We received many compliments from our guests about the food and the family style arrangement. Execution was perfect.

A wedding is only as good as the food served and lucky for us that we had the best! Vicky helped us create a dinner menu that had the guests going through the buffet line more than once! Guests still are raving about the appetizers during the cocktail hour especially the tandoori pickled mushrooms and kati roll station. Vicky also created a specialty drink for us..lychee juice that was the perfect touch to a warm summer night wedding! We feel extremely fortunate to have met Vicky who was very easy to work with and whose food you can trust to be of the highest quality and freshest ingredients. We would highly recommend Bukhara Grill for weddings and special events!

We worked with Bukhara Grill two times, for both my own and my brothers wedding. Both wedding receptions were over 500 people and the food, service and attention to detail was impeccable. You will not get better quality, a more creative menu and this level of attention to detail from any other vendor. Raja was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He not only helped us plan every detail from menu, to timing, to setup but he was at our event that night to make sure everything was perfect. The cocktail hour was incredible, dinner was delicious, and the viennese hour looked and tasted amazing. If you want a creative menu, fresh, delicious food and great service Bukhara Grill is the way to go. We used them for both of our family weddings and highly recommend them to others!

Bukhara Grill was fantastic and very responsive and accomodating to all of our needs. We worked with Vicky who is wonderful and responds quickly to any questions etc we had. He worked with us to setup a tasting time that worked for all of us and ensured we got to try the dishes we were interested in, and also provided his great recommendations/thoughts/ideas based on his years of catering experience. He was patient with all of our questions and helped us decide on things we were unsure about. We all know food is very important at a wedding (atleast Indian weddings!) and Bukhara ensures that the guests are satisfied with the quality and style of food and the way it is served. THANK YOU Vicky and Bukhara Grill!!

Like most of the reviews state, Bukhara Grill was simply amazing! My cocktail hour/ reception had a guest count of 1200, and even with such a large number, Bukhara still delivered excellent service and food!

The cocktail hour food was such a huge hit at our wedding. We received hundreds of compliments regarding the food and the variety. Bukhara's expansive menu allowed us to have all types of cuisines and dishes featured. So many people told us they were too full from the cocktail hour to enjoy dinner! With such a large guest count, we were really worried that the food might run out or there wouldn't be enough of a popular dish. However, we had exactly the opposite happen. Bukhara provided so much food per dish (above the number we gave him) that nothing ran out and there was extra of everything at the end of the night. And even though Bukhara is a south-asian restaurant, the quality of their non-Indian dishes (italian, chinese, mediterranian) was extraordinary! Our guests ate and ate and ate.

The reception dinner was equally fantastic. People loved it. The dessert buffet was also extremely well done. The amount of items/ variety on that table was mind-blowing. Not just with indian desserts, but the non-Indian desserts were just as many and just as good.

The prices were very fair and nothing like you would expect from a Manhattan-based restaurant. Raja was such a pleasure to work with. He worked with us directly and was extremely accommodating even though he is the owner!! Out of all my vendors, Raja was probably the only one who would answer his cell phone on the first ring, AT ALL TIMES! He was very easy to work with and very hospitable when we came to visit him at his restaurant. He popped a bottle of champagne in our honor when we went to see him after the wedding. He's just an overall nice guy and I would definitely recommend Bukhara Grill in the future!!

Thank you so much for all our hard work and effort. You guys did such a great job---the amount of compliments we receive is a testament to how phenomenal your food was!

When one starts to write about a caterer like Bukhara, who is known to be a perfectionist, it is difficult to find the correct words to describe the experience.

Let me start with the Menu selection - despite being of a south asian origin he offers World Cuisine which is a big plus especiallly in cross cultural weddings.

You deal directly with one of the owners and they are both hands on. Our dealing was with Raja Jhanjee & he is easy to reach. No amount of communication / meetings are too much and changes can be made as late as 5 days prior to the event.

The quality of the food is better than most bulk caterers. It is all fresh and nothing is recycled. They maintain high standards both in quality & service.

Cocktail hour set up was inovative and the butler passed appetizers were going around quickly. Despite a very wide variety that extended far beyond Indian Tandoori items, they were all fresh & hot (or cold where required). All our guests were most impressed with the cocktail hour as it included a Mediterranian station, an Italian station and a Mexican variety too, over and above the finger licking Indian kababs, tikkas and chat. The green chutney is just out of this world. One of our guests put it on everything.

The Dinner Buffet variety was fit for a King's table. Dessert variety was keeping in mind both cultures as was the buffet. Should I say more?

The biggest credit comes from my guests who have called me personally to tell me how much they enjoyed the food - visually, taste wise and from a service point of view.

Bukhara will be our caterer for all times.

The Dinner Buffet variety was fit for a King's table. Dessert variety was keeping in mind both cultures as was the buffet. Should I say more?

The biggest credit comes from my guests who have called me personally to tell me how much they enjoyed the food - visually, taste wise and from a service point of view.

Bukhara will be our caterer for all times. Read less

For my sister's wedding we had cater from Bukhara grill. The owner Vicky was absolutely amazing. His professionalism and dedication to provide an excellent service is his ultimate goal to satisfied his clients. I don't think any one could have provided a better service and food quality than bukhara grill. The quality of food and it's taste was out of this world.Simply, it was amazing. Every one who came to this wedding were raving about the quality and taste of the food. I like to personally thank Vicky and His crew for their dedication and providing excellent service.

Bukhara Grill provided the catering for our daughter's Sangeet and Wedding in Philadelphia. I cannot say enough good things about them - starting with the first meeting with Raja at their restaurant in New York. He is an absolute delight to work with, and his calm confidence did much to assure me that everything would turn out great. He was open to our thoughts and suggestions for the menus, and provided helpful guidance when we needed it. The result? Two events with fabulous cuisine, and very satisfied guests. Keep it up Bukhara Grill!

First off, we want to start by saying that Raja @ Bukhara Grill is absolutely wonderful to work with! We used Bukhara for our Wedding/Reception. Raja helped us devise the "perfect"menu for our special day. Our guests were extremely pleased with the food and service provided by Bukhara. We received numerous compliments each time we spoke to a friend or family member. Raja went above and beyond expectations. We look forward to working with Raja and his crew for future events.

We had our wedding caterered by Bukhara Grill in past May. It was a whole day event on the day of the wedding in which we provided both lunch and dinner to our guests. Raja had been very helpful, providing us with good guidance in terms of which items are best in cocktails vs entrees vs lunch food. And prior to the day of the event, we were confident that they would do a good job. There were some rumors about how some hotels are no longer affiliating themselves with the caterers due to some health violations from NYC - but I gave them the benefit and went by their reputation.
On the day of the wedding, despite being given in writing and confirming receipt of the numbers and being paid in full for that amount - they fell short of about 80 people for lunch!! So our immediate family did not even get to eat the lunch we had PAID for and had thought was provided.
Moreover, in front of all our guests, Raja proceeded to slander my father and father-in-law telling our guests how its our fault that they dont have enough food. That we hadn't informed them as such - though he had been paid in full. This was disrespectul and malicious and horrible for any bride to hear of on her wedding day. When I got wind of this I promptly called him - at this point he must have realized HIS mistake and assured me that there would be enough food at dinner for our guests.
It's one thing to make a mistake and then correct it - but another to be so UNPROFESSIONAL and DISRESPECTFUL! I would NEVER recommend Bukhara after the way they treated my fathers.

The guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing our cocktail hour was. The chili chicken and marinated mushrooms are to die for!
The only complaints we had were that our mango lassi was watered down, the desserts left much to be desired. But overall the food was phenomenal, and the managers were very accommodating with our demands.

We loved Bukhara Grill! We worked with Raja and he provided us with expcetional service. We also got many compliments from our guests about the food which can often be hit or miss at a large Indian wedding. They are extremely accomodating in terms of what you want/customize on the menu and the food was delicious. I know there are some other larger well-know caterers who may be larger, but I have to say the personal touch from Bukhara Grill was excellent. They are very careful about how many events they book, so you will get excellent service since they are only focused on you. We also used another caterer since we wanted some Filipino cuisineand they were extremely accomodating in working with them as well. We had a great tasting right before the wedding and overall an exceptional experience with them. I highly recommend them.
