Your conversation was a purely delight as it was enjoyable, diverse and thought provoking for us. You later told... More

The only thing I can say is that the good was not fresh and was not good.the service was great and the proprietor tried very hard to make the experience pleasurable but the the fare was awful. The good was drenched in horrible sauces and tested very old. I would not eat there again

It also appears to be quite STALE you indicate you visited Aug 2014, Your typographical errors are noteworthy - Food is spelt Good - Twice. This not a SUBSTANTIAL EXPERIENCE... More

I love Indian/Thai food and I came to Emperor of India with my dad with high expectations and they were most certainly met! The man who served us (and also cooked, I believe) was incredibly friendly and helpful, and truly cared about the quality of our experience. As soon as he found out we were New Mexicans and wanted the... More

We have been wanting to try Emperor for some time and arrived just as they opened last night. The Owner/Manager welcomed us and we had a very leisurely experience. The food is excellent and the lamb especially delicious. We order an appetizer which took a little extra time and came after the meal, but for us that was OK. It... More

Excellent, respectful service from the minute we walked in the door, until the minute we left. The owner was very knowledgable about the cuisine and made excellent suggestions that turned out delicious, he also came back to make sure we were enjoying it and said "I'm glad you like it, and if there is anything you are not enjoying, I...

We were passing through Lewiston and found this jewel. The food was great and the host/owner was most gracious. Our food was reasonably priced, well portioned, and delicious. The Emperor of India also does Thai food - both spicy but not too much. The next time we pass through, we are definitely coming back for seconds! It is just plain,... More

We had dinner at the Emperor last evening. The food was excellent. We ate dishes that were recommended by the owner and were so happy that we followed his advice. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely eat there again when we return to Lewiston.
