Very nice

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here; everything was very fresh. We got here 45 minutes before closing and we tried everything and we thought we were going to get dried up leftovers but we were very wrong. This place is amazing and will be returning soon

There aren't many Indian restaurants in Alameda, and this is really your best bet. Consistent food quality, decent portions, nice lunch buffet, lots of space for large parties. It's also kind of pretty inside, with a sort of exotic feel but not too kitschy (I love kitsch. I miss the curtain of blue beads. I bet they were hard to... More

We had out of town company and the choice was between Cuban food and Indian food. The guests elected for Indian and it turned out to be a good selection. The precise dishes escape me right now except the beef which I found to be very tasty. While the restaurant was busy, the noise level was acceptable and we could... More

We remembered it as being better. Perhaps they have changed chefs. Service is still good as is the food but know that it could be better. We have not tried the lunch buffet maybe better than what we experienced for dinner.

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.

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
