Came for the view, happy we stayed for the food

The atmosphere and view down to the Housatonic River from the deck is reason enough. No complaints about the food, and the service was very polite and attentive.

I love Indian food and felt the food was good, but not outstanding. I'm sure it is outstanding for Shelton, however. Also, the price was very reasonable and the staff very kind and accommodating.

neat location overlooking a valley. The buffet was decent and the place was busy with patrons. Food was constantly being added, so it was very fresh. The servers were attentive and cleared plates. You also had a choice for naan with your meal and I was suggested to try the garlic naan which was very good, and came in a... More

We thought we would try this place for lunch first since they had a buffet. We were extremely disappointed. Several of the buffet items had been depleted, but never replenished. Basic items like Naan were absent. When we asked one of the staff who appeared to be the manager he just looked at us and walked away. The items that... More

I have been to this restaurant many times for the lunch buffet, for dinner and for takeout and have never been disappointed. I often see parties on the weekends with Indian people so they appreciate the food. The staff is friendly and the service is good. The lunch buffet is so fresh and delicious. They always offer vegetarian and meat... More

We were in Shelton for an appointment and used an online search to help us find a place for dinner. We LOVE Indian food and the high rating persuaded us to try Baingan. We LOVED it! We started with vegetable samosa. I had Chicken Tikka Masala and my husband had Shrimp Tandoori Masala. Everything was cooked perfectly and served in... More

Indian food at a restaurant for us meant a drive to Norwalk/ Stamford/New Haven. Baingan in Shelton was a discovery for us. Firstly, the restaurant is not part of a strip mall, which in its own way adds to its exclusivity. Once inside it is quite spacious. There is outside seating as well, overlooking the river. Though the menu had... More

Baingan got off to a shaky start - some times the food was good, some times not. BUT lately the food is always fabulous. A must if you like Indian food!
