Only Place to get Indian Food

The place had a nice atmosphere - the food was ok. I had the lamb - which I did not like (but that may be a personal preference)

We were in Texas on a trip and ate at this place. It was amazing! We had the family meal for the six of us and had copious amounts of food. The only thing was we thought it might have been closed due to the fact that the windows were dark. The servers were friendly and engaging. I would definitely... More

I love the Indian Bistro and have been going here with my family since it opened. They are consistent with their staff throughout the years and the staff always remember us and are very kind to everyone and are actually from India (most of them I believe). Their lunch buffet is a must, so many vegetarian choices and great naans... More

Red Onion is my favorite lunch buffet in Killeen. The service is always great, the buffet is always clean and the price is fair.

First, I know what great Indian food is -- we've sponsored multiple Indian officers and their wives at Fort Leavenworth, KS, and we've eaten great Indian food in England as well. So that being said, the food and service here is outstanding. Not necessarily what I was expecting in the Heart of Texas here in Killeen, home of Fort Hood.... More

Such wonderful, authentic Indian food. My family and I grew up in England where the Indian culture is prominent, so naturally we ate a lot of Indian food. We moved to the United States 12 years ago and have tried multiple Indian restaurants around the country and this is by far the best! We will be returning....and often!

This is one of my husband and my restaurants. We have only been there for one evening meal, generally we go there for the lunchtime buffets; which are awesome. They frequently change the offerings so we don't get bored with the meals. I generally do not like cooked spinach, however, the sag paneer is the best I have ever had.... More

The restaurant was not busy and the service was a little slow, but the food was really good. I found that for an Indian Bistro it was expensive. If you ask for extra rice it is an added charge of 5.00, a little pricey for rice.

Very nice place with a friendly staff. I had the shrimp with rice with medium curry and it was good and more than I could eat. Went back this Monday but was closed. Good value.
