Pretty Consistent

I have been eating at this restaurant since 1996. The food is good, pretty consistent in quality. Their chai is authentic Indian chai and they keep your cup filled, all the chai you can drink. They also offer romaine lettuce and cucumbers on buffet which is a nice addition to the cooked food.

In a strip mall on Cerrillos with a boothy atmosphere, so not elegant. Neat, clean, friendly and prompt. The food is normal Indian instead of the sprout fusion 80s newage glop so typical in throwback Santa Fe. They go to a great deal of trouble to get it right, so if you're after a good Indian fix, this is the... More

We saw this restaurant while going to our hotel and decided to give it a try. The service was very good. They accommodated our 3 year old who was very cranky after sitting in the car for several hours. The vegetarian fares we ordered were one of the best.

Very nice atmosphere, wait staff friendly, service was good. The food is northern Indian and wonderful. Tried several dishes we'd not previously had and loved them both.

When moving to Santa Fe, I was thrilled to find Indian food restaurants here. Then, we tried one of the other ones (NOT India House) and it was terrible. I began the mourning process -- as Indian food is one of the great culinary experiences of our time. Then, someone told us about INDIA HOUSE on Cerrillos Road ... and... More

Worst butter chicken ever had and not at all worth the price. The taste is pathetic. The btr chkn sauce does not have real Indian taste. Needs a lot of improvement

We had the lentil dahl, garlic naan and some other appetizer that I'd never heard of (and can't remember what it's called). The food here is fantastic, very tasty and light! I've had Indian food in the past that was too greasy, and it turned me off. But I always want to try new flavors and reviews for this restaurant... More

We live in Colorado and travel to Santa Fe several times a year. India House is a "must" on every visit to Santé Fe. We love Indian cuisine and search out Indian restaurants wherever we travel and this restaurant remains our favorite. We've been lunching there for over twenty years and always look forward to our next visit!

I love Indian food and eat it quite frequently in Denver. I went to India House for the lunch buffet and it was so much better than the Indian buffets I've experienced in Denver. The Tandoori chicken was so moist and the Pakora's were crispy but not over cooked. The staff is also very nice and you can tell they... More
