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

No worries the waitor was phenomenal and suggestioned the perfect meal combinations for my friends and I. I will definitely revisit and if you like Chai Tea I highly... More

Great meal experience!! It was just as the owner said it would be, with the lamb, fork tender, superb quality, the sauce very flavorful, the veggies in the sauce cooked to perfection, perfectly cooked yet crisp still. The owner thought next time I should try lamb in the Thai red curry sauce with coconut milk. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant... More

I was visiting Lewiston on business. I have spent time traveling internationally, and love Indian cuisine. Praveen (the proprietor) has perfected his artwork in food. He is also a superb host, immediately making me feel comfortable and welcome. He asked some questions about my palate, and offered samples to gage my spice tolerance, and then proceeded to prepare multiple dishes... More

Thanks for your review. There appears to an inaccuracy with your comment about no water in the Men's AND Women's bathrooms - Since we have been cooking in the kitchen when we are open and we use water. The water supply to the entire building (including the bathrooms) come from a single water meter. In case the automatic faucet sticks... More

We were served samples and treats. Everything we tried was very good. The manager did it all. He was host, server and cook. We were the only people there for most of the time and we were treated very well. We will return.

Both times he has always told me if I didn't like the food he would prepare something else, always wanting to please.
