Second time guest and this time even better than the first (which was very good). Attentive but not intrusive service, luscious chicken xacuti. Fine pacing between salad/soup and entrees.

I, myself, personally had a wonderful lunch at Marsala Craft. I had the coconut curry chicken (Chicken Xacuti) with a salad. I don't think it could have been any better-it was GREAT! Two of the friends with me had the tomato coconut soup and they thought it was delicious. One friend had lamb and said that it was tough. Another friend, an elderly lady, had difficulty chewing the shrimp and thought the carrots were not done. She did not have her dentures in so I think that was the real problem and she was not accustom to crunchy carrots. My husband had Fish Tiki and enjoyed it very much. The rice and Naan were both very good.

Overall, terrific! We 5 all thought our food was delicious, all dishes were brought within 30 seconds of each other following a very reasonable prep time. Wonderful spices and flavor combinations. The woman who took our order patiently explained and answered our questions re the menu—she was spot-on in her recommendations. There were 2 of the 5 persons who really couldn’t eat spicy food; our server might have ID’d the mildest dishes for us. We liked the wall murals, but otherwise the ambience is no frills. Will definitely go back for more!

We have been there at least 4 times, each for a special occasion with friends. This time was like every other. There service was friendly, attentive, informative, and so professional and caring. The food was outstanding. The martinis were outstanding. The wines were outstanding. The service was exceptional. We sat and talked, and had our drinks, and had our meal in an absolutely friendly and attentive atmosphere. The place was packed….make a reservation! It’s great!

Overall an outstanding experience and an excellent value. The atmosphere feels like you’re having dinner with old friends. The night my husband and I were there, they were short of staff, but they were quick to let us know, and because of the heads up we simply enjoyed our extended time—knowing they were doing the best that they could. The irony is that we never lacked for service and everything came out on time and very hot! Best Indian food in Williamsburg!

I was looking forward to going and finally got there. Everything I experienced food, service was excellent. I tried the appetizer, street food which changes each day and a wonderful curry. The tomato soup of the day was outstanding. I dined alone inside at a table for 2. My friends were not able to go, because it was a spur of the moment decision. I did make a reservation. I am anxious to go back and try one of many items on the menu.

We really had a wonderful dinner and felt so welcomed by your staff. My younger son was so thrilled with his birthday dinner and the thoughtful and decadent dessert you provided him. My older son and I were really impressed with the great quality and authenticity of the dishes we ordered. We were happy to have chosen your restaurant for the occasion and to share a meal with our loved ones who were less familiar with Indian cuisine. We also enjoyed all the leftovers for lunch today!

We absolutely love this restaurant. The food is so authentic yet has a contemporary twist to the basic Indian cuisine. The quinoa dish was such a pleasant surprise and the best garlic naan. BTW excellent cocktails with a full bar. I only wish the restaurant had more help as they are extremely busy but once you visit you’ll understand why. It’s a 10!
