I wanted take out since I had more errands to run, and the nice young gentleman at the bar was very helpful in making suggestions as to what to order and... read more

I've had a lot of fine dining experience and this place has blown me away. The quality of food and service is outstanding. Everything is very fresh and I appreciate the servers and management giving me great suggestions on what to order. I can't believe I've spent this long without trying Indian food. The chicken curry, naan, jasmine rice, lamb... More

I've never enjoyed so many flavors in one bite. The food was great and the service was just as great. The bar back, MeRaj, was a real class act. I normally drink Jameson and he had me turned on to some single malt scotch I'd never heard of. He provided great knowledge and descriptions of the regional flavors I was... More

We live an hour away from Killeen but drove there to try Red Onion Indian Bistro. The delicious food was worth the drive. We ordered the meal for two, which included tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, lamb curry, sag paneer, naan and plain pullao rice. We ordered a side order of garlic naan with this meal, which made it even... More

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.

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
