A nice & simple rom-com, with Samir (Mandvi) having to put his dreams on hold to help his parents run their downtrodden Indian restaurant, only to find friendship, love and an affinity for it along the way. Nothing revolutionary, but a pleasant 95min.

A fun and emotional movie with a good story and good performances. A good watch overall.

It took me a while to catch this movie but it is certainly very worthwhile and one everybody who has ever lived in Jackson Heights should watch.

Great little movie, I'm glad the Netflix algorithims figured out that I'd like it. Was a delightful distraction from all the political b.s. we've been bombarded with over the past several months

Delightful coming of age family film and very close to home to all of us who experience far to often that age gap with our parents.

Some humorous moments, but predictable and superficial in its treatment of father-son tensions.

I've watched this movie half a dozen times since I got the DVD and still enjoy all the characters. I would love to see a sequel.

BAD movie, Jess Weixler's part is too small.

a fun comedy that shouldn't be watched on an empty stomach.

Predictable, but what movie now isn't. It was still pretty good. I don't really feel like it should be rated R, that could be a downfall for it. It was pretty much rated that because of the language. It had potential to be a family film if it weren't for that.

This movie has a lot of heart. A great story about family and coming together. Very uplifting.

Great movie, really funny, inspirational, and a good time. I think this story may have even inspired another amazing movie called Chef. The dad Hakim is so funny, his dialogue and faces made us laugh. Never has a mans bottom lip, funny faces, and dialogue steal the show from a lead actor. In all seriousness, this movie is awesome.

Sweet little movie. LA historia me parece similar a otras pero con el encanto de la mezcla de cultura y tradiciones. Un poco de sonrisas para el alma

A paint by the numbers romantic comedy about a chef. 50/50... Not terrible, but nothing remarkable and very predictable.
Super Reviewer

I liked this movie about an Indian chef who has to save his family's failing business in Queens. It will leave you craving a good curry.
