Taj Palace has been in Visalia for years, originally run by an Indian family with a great chef. Then a few years ago, after the chef passed away, other folks ran it and pretty much ran it into the ground. Lousy service, lousy food. Now a young man from India by way of Santa Monica has taken over and the... More

We should have known better when we walked into this shed/warehouse restaurant and there was only one other couple dining! The waitress was very friendly and we ordered 2 drinks, medium for me, large for my partner. When they arrived and were both large, we queried it to be told 'oh, he said just give them both large' ! I... More

I can't put it more plainly. We eat plenty of Indian cuisine in the UK so we thought we would try some Indian food USA style. We really wished we hadn't. The restaurant (it is debatable whether this place really qualifies as a restaurant) is like a school hall. It offers a buffet style eat as much as you like... More

We went to this restaurant as it was within walking distance of where we where staying and the reviews put this place in the top 30. I really can't understand why. The waitress had no knowledge of what was in any of the dishes. When asked which Indian region the cuisine was from, the answer was all of India. Trust... More

Now this was a real experience! Went there only because of good reviews, because the entrance is hard to see and it looks kind of shabby on the outside. The inside was a bit strange as well; an enormous space with tables and chairs, but all of them were empty... Good for a big party group, but not a great... More

We just visited this place, the outside is very worn down and not to inviting. Service was pretty good and attentive to what we needed. The atmosphere inside was decent, the food was good along with their desserts. I really liked that they had Buffet at dinner time, when we the dish was low they filled it up again. The... More

I enjoyed this place, the food was excellent and very flavorful. I recommend the indian tea. They also have a lunch buffet that is a good bang for your buck.

The restaurant is under new ownership. It is significantly cleaner (recent paint, drapes, decorations) however the food is not nearly as good. I'm back on the quest for another (good) Indian restaurant.
