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

This used to be the place to go when Rochester for Indian food. I not had been there in several years, and went back recently for lunch. It was such a disappointment, especially compared to the quality the buffets other locations. The selection of items on the buffet quite limited, and there was nothing spicy or very interesting. The service... More

I have been going to the Victor location for years. The food is great, but it has become so pricy that I only frequent a couple of times per year vs. monthly. $17.95 for a very small dish of chicken tikka masala is just too much for my budget. Then add on another $4-$5 for a small side of naan.... More

I enjoy the broad menu one often finds in an Indian restaurant...currys, shrimp, meat dishes...I like that the restaurant has thrived in a very competitive restaurant market for over 25 years...which helps one know, it must be good! ...I like that it is small enough to be friendly, more "family like" in atmosphere. The kitchen is fresh and fast enough... More

My wife and I are fans of Indian cuisine, and have tried most restaurants in Rochester. We consistently come back to India House, however, for both the buffet (lunch) or menu (dinner). The food is always good, and the service impeccable. Most of the wait staff has been at this location for what seems like a decade, so for us... More

Their buffet is absolutely amazing. Also, lots of vegetarian options. Their chai tea is a must. Their food is always consistently great and the interior of the restaurant consistently squeaky clean. Definitely a must try if you haven't been.

Back again! After recent disaster visits to two competitors (dirty dishes on tables our entire visit, waiting 45 minutes for food...), we went back to India House and rediscovered why we always come back. Tucked in on S. Clinton Street, the female server was great, we were even given extra rice to take home with our leftovers. Both our chicken... More
