Just by chance

Our intent was to eat at the Shiraz Grille off 28th street but we were turned away as reservations were needed on this Saturday evening. (something to note if you plan to eat there). So we needed to find a place to eat. We saw Pals as we drove back down 28th toward the E.Beltline and decided to... read more

I had a hankering for Indian food before a long road trip and so I went to Pals for the lunch buffet. Waiter was friendly and efficient, so off to a good start. The place is basic, even run down, but I eat at stalls in Asia so the ambience, even cleanliness, is not important to me eating solo. Perfect... More

I visited this restaurant again in May this year and I was disappointed. Food quality has gone down drastically and is nowhere close to a normal Indian restaurant. We ordered tandoori rotis and they were Tortilla's in reality, hard to bite and nowhere close to roti. They actually gave me pain in my stomach. Curries didn't taste fresh and felt... More

We love the food here. The decor is real basic, but it's also a great place to visit friends because you can hear them without the clutter of music and busyness.

I have eaten at this restaurant twice. Once was take out, the tandoori chicken was very good. The vindaloo shrimp was so so, not enough shrimp, and the shrimp small. The second visit I at in, and everything was wonderful. Saag murg and aloo gobhi, both fresh and delicious. The decor is not great, but everything seemed to be clean.

We visited this Indian restaurant during thanksgiving holidays as I was craving for something authentic Indian during our visit to Michigan and it didn't let us down. Looks and interior deocoration are poor but didn't matter to us as we were there just for the good food so if you can ignore the looks and want something best in Indian,... More

The lamb vindaloo was quite tasty. The butter chicken was satisfactory, but not mind blowing. I think their prices are a bit lower than the other two options in town. If you occasionally crave Indian food, Pals will meet your needs.

Okay I just saw the blasting review on TA and had to respond. We went for the lunch buffet. Wow can they rock out lentils. The food is Northern India and the spices and flavorings are subtly delicious. The naan is made to order on the buffet and is the sweetest fluffiest pillow of delish. The owner was laughing at...
