Back on track for food, lousy service

This was our first choice for Indian food when we moved to Rochester over 25 years ago. After some time, the quality of the food declined and we stopped eating here. We recently tried again, and this is our most recent report. The service was utterly poor. We were the only customers at 6:00pm on a... read more

We went as a family of 4. We had the Lamb Keema Samosa (2 samosas with two dipping sauces) for appetizer and Lacha Prantha for bread. Enjoyed them. For entrees, we ordered a Mango Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Beef Jalfrezi. The entrees came with rice, a warm cabbage dish, and a warm bean dish. We all enjoyed the entrees,... More

Went here with a group of 8. We made a reservation and had a private room. We all shared so we got to try many different foods. Each and every one was delicious. The Okra and chick peas were great! Highly recommended

This review is for the restaurant in East Ridge Road- my husband and I got chicken makhani- the chicken was very dry and we didn't care for the peas in the basmati rice. Service was inattentive and our appetizer came out after our meal. This is a fairly new place but they need to get organized and be better prepared... More

Outstanding Indian cusiine at a very reasonable price. I had the lamb vindaloo and it ordered it spicy and the lamb was very tender and lean with no fat or gristle. The sause was very tasty and spicy as I ordered. The chicken tandoori was done to perfection and juicy. Dinners were served with a huge side of basmati rice... More

We started going to India House years ago when we first moved to Rochester and always enjoyed the food. It seems that they do most of their business at the lunchtime buffet, because it was almost empty for dinner tonight. Despite that, the service was, shall we say, reluctant. And the food was disappointing and overpriced. Also, it's been a... More

Service was SLOOOOW. We were one of two tables: a total of 6 people in the entire place. Apparently call-in instead because you will have better service. The food was FANTASTIC! As expected; flavorful and delicious. Excellent options, good beer and wine selection (better than expected). However, I had 2 charges on my bill for small items I didn't order... More

The buffet is somewhat limited compared to other places in town, but the quality of the cooking is a cut above the rest. We do the buffet regularly, but have had dinner there, as well. Recommend both.

The food is delicious and is reasonably priced. The decor is adequate. If you like authentic Indian food this is the place to go. My only complaint is the service, it takes a long time in- between being seated and actually having the food in front of you to eat.

You never know where to go for good Indian food when you are from out of town. However, based on other reviews, we decided to give India House a try. Even though we were dining early, we were a little worried when the restaurant was virtually empty of diners. Nevertheless, the staff was friendly and we were encouraged to choose... More
