Good food

We ate in this restaurant while driving from Buffalo to Massena. Wanted some good Indian food. It was quirt a distance from the highway, but it was worth the effort. There was no one except the staff as we went very late, but food was available. Most of the items were tasty. The place was... read more

Went for the first Tim on recommendation of a friend. Started our meal with the Samrat Special soup. It was delicious. Perfectly seasoned and spiced. I had Lamb Tikka Masala and my date had Chicken Vindaloo. Both had excellent flavor. I highly recommend the Taj Mahal beer. One caution. If you don't like it hot, do not order spicy. What... More

I didn't know what to expect but several friends recommended me to go here. Curious about their sign out front for their buffet special, I finally made my way upstairs one day. It is a quaint little spot on the third floor of the building. They were attentive and helpful (as I had never had Indian food before) and made... More

We went for the lunch Buffett and it is good we had a guide with us. The restaurant is very plain and small but the food was hot and very tasty. The cook in small batches and refill the warmers frequently. The price was $9 and we all cfelt it was well worth the price.

Because Syracuse, NY has a large Asian population, we have a disproportionate number of Middle Eastern, Indian and East Asian food options for a small city. While it's still difficult to find a good Chinese restaurant (though Panda West and Fortune Hawaii fast food aren't bad), there are no less than five Indian restaurants in the Syracuse Metro area, so...

Samrat is great Indian food. The buffet is great and most times I've been there they continue to put out fresh food on a regular basis. The chicken tikka masala is the best I've had including those in NYC. Mango lassi is a favorite of our whole family. The entrance is nothing to write home about, but it is worth... More
