Prior reviews were good and we gave it a try. Simple surroundings. Buffet or a la carte. We went with buffet which includes dessert. Good choice of entre. Naan bread not so fresh. Plentiful food, tastes good. Rice pudding very dilute/milky with no proper dessert bowl, had to be spooned from a dining plate. Nevertheless, sweet and satisfying. Server prompt... More

This restaurant is small, nothing to look at from the outside but the food is wonderful and the service is great! The buffet is what we go for and it has an excellent selection of fresh Indian food. Love the Naan bread and Butter Chicken especially. Pakoras are also great. The buffet price is on the higher side but worth... More

Can't speak for the A la carte, but the buffet was fabulous. I sampled most of the variety, but the butter chicken, naan, gulab jamon, and kheer stood out as exceptional. Service was prompt, polite, and attentive (I hate having to wait for water when I'm feasting). Will most certainly be back!

The outside if this restaurant is very unassuming but do not be mislead. The food is wonderful some of the best I have ever tasted ( having travelled extensively) and having Anglo- Indian parents who cook fantastically. We ordered Prawn Masala , prawns big and juicy in such a delicious sauce, Chilli Chicken and Beef Korma all mouthwatering and very... More

Don't get me wrong, first off I " loved" the food...no issue there. However, I drove all the way into town to pick up my food (15 minute drive) and there were several large bags of food ready to go. The man who took my order (pretty sure he's the owner) doesn't take your name or anything so all that... More

You would not guess this plain looking little eating house would house such treasures. It is an attachment to an East Indian grocery store, yet was voted #1 East Indian Food in Prince George, BC. The buffet looked so tempting that we had to give it a try - so much to choose from. The Tandoori Chicken, Butter Chicken and... More

I have been a patron of Dana Mandi from the time I first discovered the store and when we were just ordering take-out from their store front. The restaurant is an added treasure to Prince George. I like that the location is close to the downtown, yet far enough away from the non desirable traffic of the downtown. The restaurant... More

This is the best Indian restaurant in PG for flavour and quality of food. It does not have much of an atmoshpere. We go for lunch about once a week and get take out likely once or twice a month. The food is consistenly good and tasty but the heat elementcan be a little inconsistent. Sometimes hot is just slight... More

Great Buffet selection. Food was flavourful and delicious. Pleasant hosts. If you are not that familiar with Indian food, this is a great place to start.

Food was great. It always is. The butter chicken is near perfect. The buffet is a little pricey but worth it to try a little bit of everything...especially things you wouldn't otherwise try. Highly recommend.
