In town for weekend and tried Saturday buffet at lunch. Very busy place, host was doing a good job fitting everyone even if it wasn't always the most elegant solution (some back and forth about people not having enough room or having to seat group of 4 at 2 tables) but everyone was fine in the end. Their version of... More

Good variety on their buffet at lunch and on weekends! Fresh and continually being refreshed. Love the curries and pakora's. Many nice selections including the salads and fruit bar.

I am not by any means an expert on Indian food but have frequented Indian restaurants throughout the US. I found the buffet to be excellent at India Garden. I tried a little bit of almost all of the choices. The Chicken Masala was wonderful, as was the Beef Curry. The only thing that I hesitate to call excellent was... More

At lunch time, the buffet is the best option. There are so many yummy things to try, most of which I cannot pronounce or spell. Don't forget to try the rice pudding and mango puree for dessert, also on the buffet.

We were driving up and down Broadway looking for something open. We stumbled upon this place. It doesn't look like much on the outside and the inside isn't much either, but THE FOOD! We had the tandoori prawns and one of the prawn curries - amazing flavor and not too much heat, just enough to warm your cheeks. The rice... More

I come to Rochester often and after all the medical tests I have always wanted a good Indian restaurant to put a smile on my face. While this restaurant isn't connected to the clinic, the $8.99 lunch buffet does rock the house! Curries, salads, rice choices, couldn't have asked for more.

I visited India garden for dinner while returning from Niagra Cave MN. I have never been satisfied with the ambiance of restaurants here in Unites States when I compare with the restaurants back in India or Market Area in Ottawa ON CA. So, I would say ambiance was just OK. However, service was better that I expected. The food was... More

We were directed here from a cab driver in the area. The environment is clean and comfortable and the food was authentic and delicious. We have a favorite Indian restaurant at home, and now happy to have one for our frequent trips to Rochester.

Just across from Pho Chau so this must be the neighborhood for ethnic dining in Rochester. $8.99 lunch buffet is a great deal. Veggie samosas, tandoori chicken, chicken korma & chicken saag were all excellent.

My wife and I returned for a trip to the lunch buffet. If you think of the buffet as an arc, about 80 % is *devoted* to vegetables. Though we enjoy meat, it was easy to overlook. (I tried 2 chicken dishes which were good) Whoever runs this place really cares about veggies. About the best vegetarian samosas we've add... More
