Over the years in my experience it seems like Indian restaurants start off really great and go downhill. We have been going here for the last few years fairly regularly and here the food is consistently excellent. We are particularly fond of the lunch buffet which is served at least on the weekends. The only thing bad I can say... More

We have been going to India Palace for almost a decade, and A.P.'s cooking makes this restaurant a fabulous gem. Also, the wait staff and owners are very friendly and care about their customers. We always enjoy eating at India Palace! P.S. A.P. I told you I would write about you :)

We have been visiting the India Palace once a week for at least two years. That alone says a lot about how much we enjoy the food, and the friendly and attentive staff. The buffet provides a wide selection of chicken, goat, and sometimes fish selections. The flavors are often subtle, but the vegetable selections provide that extra touch of... More

This restaurant has changed management a couple of times, but I find the good quality of the food to be consistent. Everything is very flavorful and they don't use heat just for the sake of using heat; even the hottest spices are full of tastes. Also loads of non-spicy dishes, for those who prefer. The buffet is large, with many... More

Really good flavor to food, but it should be more spicy to be authentic. If patrons want an American taste, they should go to an American cafe. This cuisine is naturally spicy so keep it that way. Attentive staff, filling portions, appealing and comfortable atmosphere. Suitable for families, friends, business, solo.

I love Indian buffets and I have been to many in the Montgomery County area, I was definitely not disappointed here. The buffet is excellent and it has a wide variety of Indian dishes to choose from. The decor in the restaurant is very cultural and beautiful. It is hard to pick one dish that I like more than the... More

This restaurant has been around for a number of years, and it's very popular--with good reason! The food is outstanding, and the service is excellent. They offer a wide variety of Indian dishes, and every one that I've tried has been delicious. The lunch buffet is a good bargain, and everything is very FRESH! Also, the restaurant is attractively decorated... More

This is as good as we have found of Indian food in the US but like so many others is expensive relative to comparable restaurants. At a lower price point this would be a 4* facility The food was good. Appetizers were very tasty Disappointed that to get a selection of chutneys to go with the popadoms along with raita... More

It is a nice place inside. Though the cushions on the benches in the booths are worn enough to be uncomfortable to sit on too long. The food in the buffet was solid. I wish the food was a little spicier but they are cooking for Americans.
