The Star of India is handy to the Hotel Royal and has an excellent menu and a good range of drinks. We arrived early and were one of the last groups to leave - shows how much we enjoyed the food and ambiance.

We had lunch at Star of India on a Tuesday afternoon. It was quite busy with the lunch crowd. There is no table service... you stand in a long line to pay (less than 100 SEK if I recall) and get to choose one entree that comes with rice, naan, a soft drink and a small salad bar. My channa... More

While the restaurant had a large room, it was nearly empty on a Thursday evening. The menu was similar to that of Indian eateries in England with mainly Europeanized dishes. The vegetable curry with naan bread was not bad with fresh bits of cauliflower and potatoes, but bland, even though I had requested to make the dish very spicy. Perhaps... More

Good food. But no spice. Would expect Indian food to be hoter! Service was OK. But it was all a bit in a rush. Fast orders etc... But in our case, 6 in the afternoon, and with a 11 month baby being not super-happy, it was a good experience. And the low price was a plus.

Ate here recently as it was close to my hotel on a rainy evening. Despite the restaurant being more or less empty I had to go & find a waitress to take my order. Food when it came was bland but edible. I then had to request the bill 3 times over a 30 minute period. I only received the... More

Was at Star of India for lunch. The restaurant is centrally located, just 200 metres from the train station. And interiors are 'indian in style' with soft indian music playing. Comfortable seating and rather crowded during lunch time. I tried the lunch offer. You choose a curry and you get naan bread, some saffron rice and the curry served on... More

Location is just near to our hotel but we will never go to that place. Hotel staff was really very rude. Food Taste was just OK. Not worth to visit.

if you like Indian food, do NOT eat here. I ordered tandoori chicken as part of their 75 kr lunch deal. I don't know how they had cooked it but it had certainly never been near a tandoor oven. it was covered in a sickly sweet sauce that tasted more of perfume than curry. didn't get promised naan bread and...

I went this restaurant to eat very late at evening just before closing. Service were very good and polite. Food was also very good.

As a lover of Indian food, I can rarely go more than a few days without indulging in my favourite food type, particularly when travelling as I have no choice but to dine out. So when the cravings start, I try to seek out a good local Indian restaurant and in the UK, Asia and North America i've had pretty... More
