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.

My husband and I stopped in to Emperor of India while we were returning home from Idaho and headed back to Washington. I found this restaurant from a search on Trip Advisor since we never seem to be steered wrong by the reviews. I have to admit that I was hesitant to go in when on a Saturday night at... More

After spending 6 weeks in South India, I visited an old friend in Lewiston I haven't seen in 8 years. We went to Emperor of India for lunch, and the food was excellent. Praveen, the owner/cook, helped us order food for our particular tastes and veg/non-veg preference. My friend had the lamb, and I had a Gobi dish with potatoes,... More

Desired something other than the ordinary, and this was it. My wife is not as much of a risk taker, so she had the Fried Rice Chicken. I tried the Paneer Pakoda, I had no idea what I was getting, and didn't really care. The meals we saw on the other tables looked delicious, so I didn't think I could... More

I had lunch at this restaurant yesterday and always enjoy the hearty flavors and spices used by this wonderful cook (Praveen) to make every dish special. I would recommend trying his soup (especially now with the cold weather). Such a nice combinations of flavors, and nice veggies with Chicken. This is NOT your mother's chicken soup! He can make this... More

Over the past year, I have been to Lewiston nearly a dozen times on business. Whenever possible I try to schedule my meetings so that I can stop in at the Emperor of India. I have stopped looking at the menu and simply ask for Chef's choice. I have yet to be disappointed. The food is incredibly fresh, flavorful and... More

If you have to choose one place in Lewiston, this should easily be your choice. I had the lamb curry I believe it was called, and it was really good. The soup was also delicious and the owner (pretty sure he was the owner) was amazing with his recommendations as I couldn't really choose. The lamb was incredibly tender and... More

Thank You for valued review and comments. They are highly appreciated. You had the Lamb Curry, we served you Lamb chops with a smaller shoulder cut. Vegetables were cooked into the Curry, and Jasmine rice is complimentary. We tried to make it as mild as possible but we use many spices to create complex flavors. So some of these spices... More
