This is a great restaurant and a wonderful spot for good Indian food! At lunch they have a buffet and at night they serve a la carte entrees like chicken tikka Marsala and Rogan josh. The food is fresh, excellent and properly spiced. You can ask for more spice if you like it really hot, but the dishes are very... More

Authentic Indian food, this is coming from a South Indian guy! Truly delicious/tasty. The owner and his wife are the ones who run and cook everything and it shows. Make some time to eat here if your passing through on the interstate or if you are nearby! The owner is a very very nice man and cares for his customers!

Okay, so it's the only Indian restaurant in Cookeville. But... the owner serves up genuine Indian cuisine, and it's really very good. You know he cares about his customers when you see real china on your place setting! Lunch is buffet style, but dinner is a-la-carte.

It was an unexpected suprise to fine a restaurant of this quality here. Have traveled extensively in this country and the quality of the food and service was second to none

Stopped here for lunch about a week ago. First time trying an Indian restaurant. Had the 7.99 buffet. It was really good, the food was fresh and they had a lot of different choices, not really sure what I ate. But whatever it was, Ill be going back for it.

I am not an expert on Indian food, but came for lunch and had the buffet. The owners were very friendly and helped me with vegetarian options. When the buffet ran out of something, they would come out with a fresh batch and bring it right to your table. The sauces were amazing and we ordered garlic naan to go... More

None of the dishes have been stellar examples of their kind when compared to those I've had elsewhere. But, as I don't know of any other Indian restaurants in the area, India Palace hits the spot when I get a hankering. The owner will question you if you ask for "hot" or "spicy". I told him "very hot". He asked... More

The owners are some of the most awesome people you will ever meet. The food is great whether you like it regular or really really spicy. Tons of dishes to choose from and a few types of beer.

We have only tried this restaurant twice but both times we had an excellent meal. As mentioned the owners are very gracious hosts and everything is prepared from scratch so expect a little wait. The wait is worth it!
