Good Indian Food Experience

We went to the buffet on a Saturday night and enjoyed trying a lot of different foods and desserts. The egg curry soup was very tasty as were most of the entrées. Our only complaints were that the nan was dry and crispy and the chicken was also dry. The service was friendly and our group of 7... read more

My son and daughter in law were visiting from California and had a taste for Indian food. My wife and I had eaten the buffet lunch in the past, but this was our first time ordering from the menu. We all had different dishes. Our entrees included Curry Chicken, Lentil soup, Chicken Tiki Marsala and Goat Sagg. We all agreed... More

I was hoping to find an authentic South Indian place in town but there doesn't seem to be even one. Coming from NJ where delicious, authentic Indian food is just around every corner, I was disappointed with the bland food at Delhi Palace. I ordered a Mixed Veg Appetizer (tasty but dry and not served with the traditional sauce duo)... More

I love Indian food and this dinner buffet which is only on the weekend is great. They are open all week but the buffet is on the weekend. (maybe lunch also?) I don't think you could fail eating there by the menu or buffet. You'll always see other a lot of Indian customers which is a good indication of how... More

We tried the buffet and it was not so good. The food was not very fresh and the naan was burned. Also, there was only one server at lunch. It took forever to have your drink refilled. Go to Punjabi Dhaba on Bush River instead.

We tried lunch buffet and it was horrible. Food was tasteless and cold. That was the worst Indian food I ever tasted. I will not recommend this restaurant to anybody. God only knows what type food was that and which country was that from. Surely not from India lol.

As an Indian I know what good Indian food should taste like and this was truly awful. I went based on the online reviews and it being close to where we started. Big mistake. We were just 2 couples with 2 small children. They suggested the buffet. I should have known that buffet at 8 PM means only one thing.... More

An unimposing exterior, but nice and cozy inside. I've only done the lunch buffet, but 6 times now. Home Kitchen Style Buffet, with about 30 offerings in SMALL bins that are frequently refilled, so food is always fresh and juicy. Many Indian delights, including masaman chicken, eggplant casserole, goat stew, tempura style vegetables (don't know the Indian names). Always excellent!!!... More
