When I want Lamb...

I have over time begun giving up eating as much red meat as I used to. Bad opening statement, but true and I'm sure the meat industry is sorry to lose me...but when I want lamb I go to Cross Culture in Princeton's one and only shopping center. I have been going to this local restaurant for the... read more

I have never eaten in house but the takeout at Cross Culture is consistently good and it keeps me returning here rather than others which can be hit-or-miss. We have noticed that at some other Indian restaurants in the area some dishes taste and look completely different on different nights of the week (different chef perhaps?) but not at Cross... More

When I didn't see my favorites on the menu - saag aloo or chana masala, the server suggested he allow the kitchen to make something for me that I would like, and he was right! A combination of the two dishes that was really delicious. I ate outside, which left something to be desired since it's in a shopping center.... More

We always go to Cross Culture at least twice when I'm up from Florida to visit friends and family. The food is very good, with a broad selection of Indian specialties, and you can bring your own wine or choose from theirs. I highly recommend the breads! The noise level is reasonable, the prices fair and the service quick. I've... More

Excellent authentic Indian cuisine! Wide and varied dinner menu. Lunches are quite astounding for the low price charged: Pekora, Naan, Dal, Rice and most Entrees all for under $15.00. Service is quiet, friendly and only as busy as you wish. Everything is tender and subtly Spice level is adjusted to your request, but is mild if you do not specify.... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple times before and enjoyed it by not this time. We decided to do take out and since the parking was easier here than at Tandoori Bites we decided on Cross Culture. So here's the good & bad: The Good: The Tandoori Chicken was good although the portion was small. The Raita was... More

You read reviews and try not to get overly excited about trying a new restaurant. You toss out the too generous or too negative, looking for the sweet spot. Cross Culture is definitely up there better than a 4 but not a 5. Our party of 4 was early for our reservation, but we were seated right away. Service is... More

The food has always been delicious at Cross Culture. A wide range of indian food sure to please the discerning palate. Nice windows overlooking the center courtyard. Portions are easily shared. The service is paced. BYOB. Worth the trip.

This popular Indian restaurant is located in the Princeton Shopping Center next to Dunkin Doughnuts. Food was good and service was excellent. The sauces were very fresh and delicious. The Tandoori Mixed grill ($20.95) had large pieces of tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, malai kabob, boti kabab, shrimp tandoori, and fish tikka. It was tasty but a little on the dry... More
