It's like I am in India

I'll admit I'm a fan of Indian buffets because I don't have friends or family that will join me. Now, i have both friends and family, they just don't share my passion for Indian food. The buffet works for me because one person cannot order the variety of food found on a typical buffet spread... read more

I live in the neighborhood and generally am a big fan of BOI tonight however, not so much. We did takeout tonight and ordered the Dal Tadka, which is according to their menu a red lentil dal with tomatoes and onions. When I opened the container I saw a soupy white conconction with green specks - if it had tomatoes... More

My husband and I went there last week and had the worst restaurant experience ever. First, the host did not welcome us at all, which I'm not holding against (not yet). Then the waiter came to our table and just said "hmm.." which was his indication for us to place the order. We ordered for their Veggie platter, a chai... More

Zero customer service. Rude manager-empty containers in buffet. Why pay for a empty buffet! The manager needs a customer service 101 class. Anyone please teach him how to respect a customer . No wonder his place was empty

My family and I love good Indian food, so we'll seek out Indian restaurants whenever we go out of town. We have had good experiences and bad from several different price ranges. We chose this restaurant because it was the closest one to us at the time. Admittedly, we can be very critical of our dining experiences. Knowing it can... More

We discovered this restaurant through Metro Dining Club last year and have continued to return regularly since then. We've tried other Indian restaurants and none compare to how spicy they make the food. My husband loves "Indian spicy" for his Chicken Curry and they give it to him. I love their creamy Chicken Shahi Korma. And their naan ROCKS! We... More

After 10+ visits to this restaurant, I still haven't ordered off the menu. The buffet is to die for.

We have been to other Indian restaurants in the area, and Best of India compares favorably. Maybe not the most eye-pleasing restaurant, but the food is good and the service is helpful without being intrusive. The Tandoori chicken was prepared to the spice level we requested as we had our kids along, and it was great. The vegetable biryani was... More

At the behest of one of my colleagues, we set out to the Best of India luncheon buffet yesterday (new year's eve). Not huge by bulk buffet standards, but an ample & delightful variety of tastes & textures, somehow different than the other American-taste-leaning Indian options. Even the black tea was spiced nicely w/o sugar! Friendly proprietors, and plenty of... More

I met with friends here for a meal before a comedy show. The atmosphere was nice and the place wasn't crowded. Our sever was friendly and knowledgeable. We had spring rolls for appetizer that were as good as any I've had. I had a curry dish with shrimp that was yummy. I would definitely go there again.
