Warm and friendly place

This has become one of my favorite places for a meal in Alameda. The food is great. Good selection of dishes, vegetarian and meat based. Naan is tasty and fresh. I would recommend this place. I always feel like I am visiting someone's home.

This restaurant had the best Indian fare buffet I have ever found. The dinner menu was also very fine; authentic and delicious.

We've been coming to India Palace for years and it's always been a win. Everything is delicious and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. If you're sampling Alameda fare, this is definitely one of my top 5.

India Palace has quickly turned into our "I don't feel like cooking tonight" restaurant. We have eaten in three times and the restaurant has a nice, relaxed environment in a house structure. The staff has always been very pleasant and efficient. Most of our orders have been take out and I hate to admit but our order rarely changes,-Onion Kulcha... More

In the small town of Alameda, we were pleasantly surprised to find such an excellent Indian restaurant. Nestled in a residential neighborhood, the restaurant is a converted older home with plenty of parking in back and on the street. We enjoyed their authentic curries and attentive service. The environment was quiet and allowed for pleasant conversation. We will definitely return... More

Off the beaten path in the eclectic city of Alameda, you will find a delightful, traditional Indian restaurant in a contemporary décor. On my second visit, two friends and I enjoyed sharing three different dishes over dinner. The atmosphere is spacious and bright, a nice change from the usual dark interiors I’ve experienced at many Indian eateries. I don’t think... More

We love Indian food and where we live (Eugene OR) there aren't a lot of good options for this cuisine. So when we travel we sample Indian food when we can. Our cousin recommended this restaturant when we were visiting - so off we went with them to find out what Alamedean Indian food was all about. Oh my gosh... More

Ok, I had been here before several years ago with my parents for dinner and would have given it 4 stars then, almost perfect, but a little bland (even though I asked for spicy) and lacking in selection of dishes. Then I went with my friend for the Lunch buffet... and it was weird. It was just us and like... More
