Small Indian Gem in Orange CT

I've had dinner something like 4x at Star of India this calendar year including with family and as a solo. Really nice menu with Indian essentials but not a catalog of similar dishes. Enjoy the service here - more mature guys who are attentive but not intrusive. I've tried a bunch of dishes and... read more

The food is excellent. The prices are reasonable, and the staff are exceptional. I am so glad to have found a great Indian restaurant that is close to home.

My husband and I frequent The Star of India regularly. The food is always the freshest and made to your specification of spiciness . Satnam and Shuhil are the most helpful and polite staff. They are always willing to make suggestions if you'd like to try something different. And let me just say, if you've never had goat, you should... More

We have eaten at Star of India a few times, usually for the lunch buffet. The food is consistently good and very close to authentic Indian food. While the location can be easily missed and the interior is very average, the food and service makes this place well worth a trip.

Star of India serves pretty good Indian food and it's close enough to being authentic. Restaurant can be difficult to locate as it sits in a small building off of Boston Post Road. You can dine in or take out and they also deliver. The curry dishes are delicious as well as the biryani.

This place doesn't look impressive in terms of looks, but the food tastes great, is cheap and they have a great choice. The servers and staff were very polite and courteous. Also, both the restaurant and the bathrooms were very clean. Too bad they are not closer to us; we would definitely come here more often!

I'm a foody and was put off by another site's review about how would any one go to this place with another major Indian place around the corner. Well, it;s like this the food is better and is a much better value. If you want snobbery and slow service go to the trendy place but Star of India is sooo... More

For my first time trying Indian food I was certainly intrigued. Staying on the safe side, I ordered a mild fish dish which came with Basmati rice and was quite tasty. I was more impressed with the hospitality of all of the staff which along with the meal will make me come back. I loved it when I was helped... More

I'm not sure what happened. Perhaps it was just a bad night? We used to go to this place frequently and we noticed an "Under New Management" sign. Which is too bad because we liked the old management. We tried it anyway and we were incredibly disappointed. We got something rather simple - Chana Masala - and they botched it... More

On the outside it doesn't look like anything special but the food is delicious! The service is also excellent. I've been here a few times and every time is great. Probably my favorite place to go to for Indian food. Do give it a chance!
