Ordered via UBEREats, order is not late by over 45 minutes past the initial advertised delivery time. Terrible, dishonest service. Don't participate, if you cannot provide decent service.

Delicious Indian food, an attentive service and a classy setting make up for a perfect dinner experience. The one star Michelin is justified.

What is the dress for Tulsi? Do men need a coat for lunch? Could ladies wear leggings and a tunic with nice flats or booties? Thanks in advance :)

Description
Tulsi features distinctive regional Indian cuisine created by Chef Hemant Mathur, critically acclaimed for his clean, distinct flavors and a master of tandoor cooking - from savory street food and breads to tantalizing vegetable specialties and fragrant curries, to signature tandoor-grilled meats and seafood. Designed for comfort, relaxation and the enjoyment of food, drinks and conversation, the 55-seat dining room and 15-seat bar/lounge reflects modern India with a nod to cultural traditions and motifs.



Guests may also enjoy a seven-course Chef's Tasting Menu (also a Chef's Vegetarian Tasting Menu) and bar snacks, as well as a thoughtful list of spice-friendly wines, handcrafted cocktails and beers. "Tulsi" (pronounced TOOL-see) means divine basil.
