Cross Culture is our favorite Indian place in town. In particular, their lunch special is one of the best deals going. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Is this the best Indian food you will ever have, no. But the food is consistently good, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the service very good. Worth trying.

It is easy to find an Indian restaurant in this area, but most are buffets for lunch with limited choices and the usual drawbacks of buffet food. Cross Culture (in the Princeton Shopping Mall) served an "Executive lunch" with a similar price to the high end buffets so we decided to try it. There was a lot of food listed,... More

Excellent food. Some of the best chicken korma I have had. Not cheap, but that is not what they are going for.

Wow, I love Indian food and have a hard time finding a truly good restaurant. I can definitely say Cross Culture is a must for indian food lovers. The spinach ball appetizers were a perfect delight. The chicken tikka massala ( i know I spelled that wrong) was the best I ever had. The sauce was incredible and the chicken... More

We were driving through Princeton today on our way to PA. Having seen lots of Indian restaurants by the side if Route 1, we decided to check Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed by this restaurant. Lunch includes pakoras, naan, daal side order, a salad and rice. Hard to beat for between $10-13. If the presence of many Indian-appearing diners is... More

We came for a special occasion dinner and were looking for a good Indian restaurant. The food was very good (better than most) but the service was a little slow (not terrible) and the prices were a little high. Our expectations may have been a little high based on other Trip Advisor reviews, if we were back in Princeton, we... More

There is a limit to which Indian restaurants can be americanized. But looks like this restaurant has crossed the limit, the reason why probably they call it 'Cross Culture'. The name is very appropriate. The ambience is good, prices are way too high for the quality / quantity / taste of food they provide. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone... More

We took our nephew to dinner here for his birthday. I can't believe we haven't eaten here before. Delicious food, impressively attentive wait staff, nice atmosphere. This is a BYOB restaurant. We had an appetizer platter that was lovely and filled us up so that we had to take some of our generous portions home. We went on a weeknight... More

A highlight of business travel is finding new and interesting places to eat. Cross Culture was a delight. Great food at very reasonable price.
