Wonderful date restaurant!

The food is really good. I haven't had one thing yet that wasn't wonderful. and, the portions are very generous. I really like to go there when I want an ethnic, satisfying dinner with my husband and/or children.

Closed down in March. Siaa, another Indian, has opened there. Very good. Service a bit slow but just opened a week ago.

They had several vegetarian items on the lunch buffet and they were pretty good. The owner was very friendly to us but a little late in removing the used plates, The vegetarian selections were pretty good ... not great but we did not leave there hungry. Unfortunately, the men's restroom was not good ... it should get a thorough overall... More

Long story short: I will never go back to this place. The service was horrendous. It took 9 minutes for someone to come take mine and my boyfriends drink order, our server was terrible (we quickly realized this man was the owner and clearly didn't care about anything), and the food was below average. I never leave reviews, but this... More

My wife and I both enjoyed the food. The waiter was good but we were the only people in the place, but they seem to do a good take-out business. Very little atmosphere but solid food at a fair price.

We tried India Mahal after reading the reviews and having a disappointing meal at Tandoori Bites. India Mahal is the better of the 2 by some way. It was a friendly welcome and the food is far more genuine for sure. However the best of Indian cuisine is fresh and fragrant. Where Mahal falls down some of the sauces are... More

Been going here since I was a teenager and it was a hole in the wall restaurant. The flatbread and salsa-like dip is great, the curries are awesome, but what I come here for is the coconut soup-simply delicious.

The India Mahal is, by far, the best Indian restaurant in Wilmington. Excellent buffet with a great variety, including breads. One can tell the ingredients are always fresh, the various dishes well tended at the serving station, and everything is always very nicely spiced! The staff is very friendly -- and the more you get to know them the friendlier... More

We came here because we had an Attractions book coupon for "$10 off anything" and we were curious about their buffet. No one else was dining when we arrives at 12:45pm. We were immediately told that "anything" didn't include the $9 buffet. After some discussion, we were allowed partial value on the coupon. Many buffet items were not labelled (... More

I enjoyed the lunch buffett very much. The food was fresh and hot , but I got there a little before noon. I would eat there again and found it to be a good experience. I have eaten at other indian food restaurants in town but I do not enjoy them as well. I will return.
