Good Food, Quiet

We went here for dinner and were surprised that the place was not very full. We were greeted and seated right away. Our waiter brought us our drinks immediately and our order didn't take very long to appear. The food here is really good as is the service. We had lamb curry and a chicken... read more

Tonight must have been chef's night off. Food was really bad with sole exception of the vegetable curry. Vegetable biryani tasted like it came from a can. Tandoori chicken and shrimp were both undercooked and unpleasant texture and taste. The nan tasted like it had been frozen and then thawed. I won't eat here again if I have an alternative.

My husband and I love love LOVE this place. We visit every couple of months or so for the lunch buffet. The variety of dishes available change daily so each time you get some thing a little different, like the goat curry which was fantastic. They have vegetarian options that are delicious and always have the tandoori chicken which is... More

This is one of our go-to places for Sunday brunch. Always fresh and delicious and a great variety of foods (though I wish they'd include my favorite, the 'chili chicken,' more often!) Buffet includes green salad and vegetarian options, also a great rice pudding for dessert. Service always friendly and attentive. Great value! We've also been once or twice for... More

Been going here for years. It's busy at lunchtime but worth the wait in the buffet line. Great entrees and the buffet is well attended by the wait staff. Restaurant is always clean and the atmosphere is calm and quiet.

We decided to try something new....an Indian food restaurant and we are hooked! The food here is fantastic, good taste and good quality! You can choose your level of spicyness for all dishes. The service was friendly and great and the atmosphere was welcoming! My teenaged daughters loved it too and had fun trying something completely new! Great little place... More

I have visited this restaurant twice - both on Saturday for lunch and had the buffet. It was delicious and wonderful. The service is outstanding too.

From the outside, India Palace does not look like much, just another restaurant in a strip mall. But rest assured, looks can be deceiving, and the food here is delicious. It is a favorite for lunch with the business crowd from nearby 3M, and the lunch buffet is really good with a nice selection. Dinner is also tasty, and my... More

Considering my youngest child is adopted from New Delhi, India, I often feel guilty that the cuisine mystifies and intimidates me and I can't pronounce the dishes. I feel a cultural responsibility to my daughter to learn more about the food and share that experience with her. We decide to have a food adventure. We started with an appetizer platter,... More

This restaurant is always busy for a reason. They put out an excellent buffet of authentic Indian dishes that always includes plenty of selections for vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Their chicken masala is the best I have ever had and their vegetable curry always sends me up for seconds. Reasonable price for a buffet- I'd recommend this restaurant to... More
