Great way to sample Indian food!

Not much of an ambience but the food is consistently good not great! For anyone who has never tried Indian food, the buffet is a great way to sample several traditional dishes. If you're going for dinner on the weekend, try to get there before 7pm as it does get busy!

This was my first real experience with Indian cuisine, so I can not compare India Palace with other restaurants, but for me it was a winning experience. I enjoyed the buffet, sampling a variety of dishes, all of which tasted delicious. Lovely curries, warm nan, crispy samosas. The ambiance was nice and the servers were attentive. And there are free... More

Having visited on other occasions and being convinced that this is THE best Indian restaurant in San Antonio, we ordered take-out for the first time ( not knowing what to expect). Our order was taken by a friendly competent young .man. When I called back to add their FABULOUS Mango chutney to the order ,the young lady who answered the... More

This is the best Indian restaurant ever! Great place for family. Even my friends from the east coast loves this place and there are so many Indian restaurants there.

The pakoras were good however the rest of our meal (chicken tikka masala, garlic naan) lacked flavor. We were disappointed to say the least after hoping for a flavorful meal away from home.

The food was okay, and the tables are tightly packed. Our seats are torn. The tables have some Bollywood actress posters under the glass. India is only Bollywood ?? The food and service were mediocre. The server spilled food on my kid, while taking the plates away. The same buffet costs $9.99 until 2:59 PM, and at 3:00 PM it... More

We found the India Palace by accident, & after eating there over the past two years, continue to be impressed by the quality of the food & the general customer service. This restaurant is conveniently located in the Oaks Shopping Center on Fredericksburg Road, easy off the highway & next door to a Courtyard Marriott. The restaurant offers a great... More

The food was certainly good. Glad that they offer lunch and dinner buffet. Small area and too many tables. Not for the quite dinners..!

I haven't been here in a couple of years. They've grown and are still packed! The buffet is simple but the food is amazing! There really isn't much atmosphere so don't go for any kind of experience. It's all about the food. Really good food.
