Good variety of food, nice staff, good prices. The white wine of the house was too sweet though. Placed in a quiet area of Gothenburg. Really recommend this place if you want to have a decent meal and a nice and quiet night out.

Star of India shld be called just "of", it was neither a Star or India. Service was poor food was poor and did I mention the service was poor. Even had the head knob telling me the rice was "plain rice" even though it has saffron and was yellow. I had to put him straight there and he even had... More

We thought we'd have a bite to eat here before seeing the feel-good movie '100 feet between Mumbai and Paris' which is all about good food and feeling happy in the end. How different was the meal at "Star of India" - food was bland, the waiter deserved an Oscar for his uncanny ability to ignore customers begging for attention,... More

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
