Excellent, varied lunch buffet

We like to go to Indian buffets. During a recent visit to Mayo Clinic we visited this restaurant twice for lunch (once to try it out, and then a return because we liked it so much). There must have been something like 6 or 7 main dishes, plus samosas and pakoras, two different kinds of rice, and... read more

We enjoyed the food and varied buffet selections. We will return again. The only thing I think they could improve is the decor, some of it seems a bit too worn. But it still is one of our favorite Indian places in Rochester. Attentive serivice!

I was excited to have some real authentic indian food. I grew up on a lot of indian recipes including; samosa, parathas, chicken curry etc. The ambiance of the restaurant is just basic but I am not one to judge the restaurant, the waitress came over and took our orders. I had the chicken tikka masala with rice and I... More

This place hardly deserves a star at minimum. Had Indian food in Branson, MO and they did not tone down spices at all. Flavor was amazing there. The food here is not comparable to say the least. The rice wasn't sweet and the meat was tough. I won't come here again. I'm sad that I wasted my money here. (Note:... More

Our server could not speak English, so I could not ask questions about the menu. I ordered the "mix grill" (spelling from the menu), 20 dollars and definitely not worth it. The rice was well prepared, but every piece of meat was dry and hard to chew. The "salad" consisted of wilted iceberg and 2 slices of tomatoe served on... More

India Garden has a great lunch buffet. Excellent food including tandoori chicken. It's a little expensive for lunch, but well worth the treat!

3 of the 4 in our party had never had Indian food; the wait staff was great about explaining the dishes to us and answering lots of questions. The food was very good! Wonderful naan bread, great appetizers, and our main courses were awesome. 2 of us couldn't eat all of our entrees, so they brought us more rice so... More

As vegetarians, we have been longtime fans of India Garden, but I swear the food is getting better and better. Perhaps there is a new chef, or the old one is newly inspired, but the food seems fresher and more flavorful these days. We particularly like the Dal Mahkni (lentils and kidney beans in a rich, creamy sauce), the smokey... More

This is one of the best all-you-can-eat Indian buffets that I have ever eaten at. I can see why this restaurant was voted "Best Indian Restaurant" for 8 consecutive years. This restaurant was very busy when we arrived for lunch. We were seated right away and the service line moved fast. The buffet food selections were hot and they were... More
