I am surprised to see so many positive review. The food is simply bland and horrible. There is no real Indian taste on any of their items. Some times they tasted like pure hot water. Will never visit there again. People writing positive reviews have not tasted real good Indian food. I pity them.

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.

Would give this place 4+ stars. The only reason for declining 5 is I wouldn't recommend this as a place for a long romantic dinner. But the Indian food was excellent! We ordered the lentil soup (their version of Mulligatawny soup, I guess) and the Chicken Tika Masala (one of our fans) both accompanied by garlic Naan. We were not... More

When we moved to Germantown, we were not sure if we were going to be able to find a good curry - we got lucky with the first place we picked! We have been several times and have also brought family with us. Although the food is not very spicy (and we do love spicy!), the flavors are really good... More

We have been there for dinner as well as lunch buffet. The food is very high quality. The lunch buffet even opens during weekend. Highly recommended.

India Palace has been a "staple" in my family's diet for several years. Today, however we were extremely disappointed. We arrived at 1:30 for the buffet which closes at 3:00. They were out of 3 of the 7 vegetarian selections.(We are vegetarians.) I asked the hostess whether or not they were planning to bring out more food and she assured... More

All you can eat buffet. It's one of my favorable lunch places around Gaithersburg since 2006. They changed the interion few years ago and made it more open. Food keeps its quality. There is a basic choice of veg and meat including goat. Free mango lassie and bread.

This restaurant is located in a strip type shopping center, but don't let the looks deceive you. My son loves indian food, especially butter chicken. He always asks for extra spicy. Not only was his meal served as requested, he said it was very good and I could tell by the smile on his face that he was happy. I... More
