Our family likes to go to Kanak since the food is good and there is never a wait. We always order the palak paneer and garlic naan. Very good and flavorful. The service is fine. The waiting staff isn't overly friendly, but by no means are they rude. The food is what makes us come back.

I ate at Ambar in Clifton years ago, but parking was such a hassle. Kanak is so convenient for us Northeast-siders. Food is excellent. I would suggest the chicken saag, but frankly have never been disappointed with other choices. Also love their onion nan, special tea, and mango lassi. Although I have high grades for the food, staff continues to... More

Hands down, my best buffet experience was at Kanak. I went there for an early lunch around 11AM. Everything I tasted was fresh, delicious, & hot in temperature. The number of different dishes at the buffet was also pleasantly surprising.

My wife and I enjoy Indian Food. We lead busy lives and frequently rely on "take-out" rather than cook. For us, Indian food is a favorite. We started with Ambar in Clifton. When Baba opened in Oakley, closer to our home, we went there. More recently, we frequent Kanak, located in Montgomery, which is on the way home from work.... More

The food here is always solid, but sometimes the staff (I think) can be a bit bristly. One time I went in after having spent half the day moving, and was just wearing a t-shirt and shorts, and the greeter basically said to me, "Can I help you?" as if I was lost and was coming in to ask him... More

Plenty of good indian food places at our disposal in the area. Kanak happens to be one we frequent since we find it a little better than some of the other. Not mind blowing great, but very good food. Establishment is well run , but service can be a bit "stiff". We're there for the food, and never disappointed. Rarely... More

I found the Kanak India through tripadvisor while researching our trip to Cincinnati. I'm glad I did my homework. The Kanak India was great. Service was excellent. We were greeted by the owner and he was so happy to know how we found his place. The food was delicious. We were five eating that night and we all ordered different... More

Baba India in Oakley was our favorite, but when Kanak opened closer to where we live, we gave it a try. (I think they have the same owner, not sure.) Kanak is just as good, which means the food is fantastic. Our usuals are Aloo Choley and Chicken Tikka. Also like the Fish Tikka (salmon). Lots of people like the... More

The best Indian Restaurant in town. Food is outstanding and superb ambiance. The chicken tikka masala is out of the world.
