If you love India food this is a must do!

We make it a point to stop by the Passage to India every time we are in Fargo. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, the food is very good and the staff is friendly and attentive.

Amazing service from everyone we interacted with. Extensive and authentic menu. Tons of choices for drinks as well. The dishes we tried were amazing (briyani, naan, and others). Wish we lived in Fargo so we could come back soon.

I have been to A Passage to India several times, and it is always a very good experience. The menu has a nice variety of options, the prices are generally pretty reasonable, and the food itself is rich, flavorful and satisfying. The atmosphere is a little bare bones, but the food makes up for it. This is one of only... More

The wait staff here works very hard to make you feel comfortable, especially if you are new to Indian food. They work hard to help you select something you would like and they have never steered me wrong.

I wish there was a more options for buffet. I visited this place 2 or 3 times and buffet options were the same. Sunday afternoons are really crowded and it costs $15. Their sambar and idli are not good. Idli is not moist/soft and it crumbles. Sambar is too thin. I did not like the fish curry either. Naan, different... More

No one comes to Fargo, ND and thinks let's go for Indian. However, Fargo has a surprisingly good selection of restaurants, Passage to India is one of them. You need to go to a little strip mall outside of downtown to reach the place. The food is tasty well prepared properly seasoned and fairly priced. Good choice for the vegetarian... More

I chose this because it had gotten good reviews in the past. It did not disappoint: I was seated quickly and attended to well by the wait staff. The buffet has lots of great choices, especially for someone like me--I don't know that much about Indian food, so I liked being able to see what I was getting. I had... More

Good food! All was good until the bill came, and it became apparent that since we were not from Fargo (and the server knew this), they had inflated the bill with an "error of addition." They won't be coming back anyway! Shabby treatment.

I am giving this place an average rating based on price and cleanliness of restaurant because this was only our first attempt at trying Indian Cuisine, and will be our last. We did not care for the cuisine at all. Price, too high for what they offer. Staff was friendly. Tablecloth is under a glass on top of table and... More
