Our favorite!

My husband and I have been many times to the Red Onion and have always had a delicious meal and excellent service. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service efficient and understated. I'm sure we'll go back many times. My favorite dish is the chicken tikka masala.

This restaurant is by far the very best in Killeen! The food is so delicious, I usually only eat one serving at a buffet but I had to get a refill , it was just so amazing! The staff is so very friendly, I just love Indians and this is my very favorite place to go !

I live in Temple where I have not been able to find a good Indian restaurant. The drive to Killeen is worth the great Indian food from the Red Onion. The Chicken Marsala, Saag Paneer, and Naan bread are excellent and I would recommend them to anyone.

This restaurant has a great selection of food on the buffet, which is what I get whenever I order to go. They're accomodating when you do this by providing a to go naan wrapped in foil and a little plastic cup for soups or salad or extra saag paneer. Eating in the restaurant is also a pleasent experience. The staff... More

I wouldn't normally choose an Indian Restaurant but since the Red Onion was rated #2 for Killeen, I thought I would give it a go. From a previous review, the windows are rather dark so it does look closed. The restaurant was about 1/4 occupied so I was seated right away. You are given this crispy, thin "bread" with two...

The great thing about Trip Advisor is... you are in a new town, you have 10 minutes to pick a lunch place and, more often then not, you can find whatever you are craving. This place was busy, the service was pleasant and wonderful (as you would expect in good Ole Texas) and the food was very good, including fresh... More

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)
