My favorite Indian restaurant in Maryland--and such a lunch buffet! Yum!

So comfortable, attractive--and the best Indian lunch buffet I have experienced in all my visits to many Maryland Indian restaurants. The food is not good--It is superior and so great. The buffet includes so many things that others do not--mango lassi, chai tea, coffee, and a multitude of buffet... read more

I love this restaurant. My family orders take out from here every Tuesday night. Plus, whenever I need a quiet place for a business lunch, I come here.

All five dishes got full marks from the whole family. The friendly waiter was attentive and helpful in deciding on our selections. In all, it was a very pleasant experience. The hours are much broader than listed here. It also does not serve German food. Is a rival trying to sabotage them?

My family and I have gone to this Indian restaurant a few times, and we always want to come back. It is simply the best Indian food in the MD/DC/VA area! The restaurant is spaceous, the service is quick and very friendly, and the prices are reasonable. We love their tandoori specialties (chicken, shrimp, lamb).

After refusing so many times to eat at any Indian restaurants for our weekly dining out, I finally relented and agreed to try Indian cuisine with my dining companion. We dined at his favorite Indian restaurant, the India Palace Bar and Tandoor. We were the only customers when we arrived at 5:45 p.m. Service staff was very attentive to us,... More

My wife's sister and her husband treated us to Sunday buffet. My first eat-in although I have enjoyed the carry-out previously. We live in Virginia and I would say that the food is on par with the very good restaurants in Virginia's Loudoun County...but what was nice at India Palace was the inclusion of items like unlimited tea and mango...

Wide variety of food, for meat or vegaterian dieters. Did find a long black hair in honey dessert ball. Plenty of available parking and seniors get a discount.

I have eaten here a number of times, mostly having the buffet. I have always been very pleased. The waiters and managers are also attentive and friendly. It's my go to Indian restaurant when I'm in the area.

I love to eat out. It's my reward for working hard during the week. I deserve good food that I didn't have to slave over cooking for hours. I am not from India so I wouldn't know how to cook it anyway. We eat at India Palace on Friday evenings all the time. I had a visitor from Virginia that... More
