It's a buffet restaurant with all the indian favorites. They rotate the food regularly so it's as fresh as you can hope for with a buffet. Everything is well seasoned and properly spiced. Limited but adequate drink menu. Nice after work hours, before the game or family place.

This place serves up over spiced and sloppily cooked indian buffets, leaves the food out all day and pretends to be gourmet indo cuisine. Well stop pretending either be what one aspires to or close up.

Great concept, great location, food is delicious andfresh, just like the ottawa location. Staff is great. If you like indian food, you will be so happy that you tried their plentiful buffet. Every dish is delicious! I have eaten there many times and always look forward to going back!

Definitely going back again. Staff was very friendly and food was awesome! I didn't know where to go for East Indian food in Winnipeg before. Well, now I found the place.

We have been eating in the East India Co many times over the past five years; however, our last visit is really worth talking about. It seemed that the staff decided to take their food offerings up to a new level. We never had a complaint about the food there before - this time it was even more of a... More

I am no expert on Indian food but I like eating here from time to time. Their buffet has a wide variety of tasty dishes and one must pace themselves to try a little bit of everthing. Their deserts are worth a try if you have room at the end.

I'm usually very wary of trying spicy cuisine, but since this was the closest restaurant to the office I was visiting & it was minus 30 outside, I decided to bundle up, run down the block & give EIC a try along with my "the spicier the better" co-worker. Much to my delight, the buffet had a huge selection of... More

I love eating here! I especially enjoy the butter chicken. And the mango lasshi, a mixture of mag and yoghurt that's one of my favourite drinks. The service is always fantastic and it's wonderful to go to a family run restaurant. The buffet is wide and varied. It's the same at dinner and lunch, but lunch is cheaper.

Our family has been coming here for years, and it's our favourite Indian restaurant in Winnipeg. We ordered a big meal for take out for 8 people on Saturday. It was prepared on time and was absolutely delicious. Highlights include the Palak Paneer, the Murg Bahar (basically their version of a chicken tikka masala), the Navratan, and the Railway Mutton...

I had the Saturday evening buffet. I focused on the masalas as my daughter in Toronto had recommended trying them. The eggplant masala was my favourite of four types offered. It was delicious and inspired me to look up a recipe to try at home. In the process I found that the East India Company posts some of their recipes... More
