“Best Of The Best In Orange County !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We discovered India Cook House during our annual vacation a couple of years ago. Since we found their food to be tasty, rightly spiced and healthy (optimum salt and oil) we ate there almost daily. And during our two week stay this year we repeated our routine and found the food quality and customer service to be consistently outstanding and great value for your money.

The owner, Mr. Singh, is always professional and an excellent host ; he personally makes sure that his customers' needs are met. The serving staff is well-trained and professional; they always make their guests feel welcome.

No wonder this place is always full !! Keep it up folks....

“Best Indian food in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Whenever I'm in the area I catch the buffet at India Cook House. The items vary but tasty. Wish they have Chicken Tikka Masala more often but no complaints with the butter chicken. Can't beat the dessert cart, must try items with every visit. The carrot dessert is my favorite!! Very good value too.

“The best Indian food in Orange County!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We have eaten at every Indian restaurant in Orange County and this is still our favorite!
The chicken tikka is moist and delicious. We alway order chicken tikka, palaak paneer and two orders of naan. Although tucked away in a little strip center in Irvine, the restaurant itself is actually very pretty inside, with tablecloths and a nice atmosphere.

“Even their "mild" is a bit spicey, so be warned!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We were a group of four who had theater tickets so we wanted to enjoy our meal, but we also had to watch the clock so that we could be out in time to make it to the performance. The waiter completely understood our problem and was completely wonderful in making certain that our service was quick. He had made some great suggestions for our menu selection, and we took them. Everything we ordered was very good, although we believe their understanding of "mild" is totally differnt than ours. Next time we go we will say VERY mild!! We got four dishes and planned that each would have a different sauce. We got one curry, one milk-based sauce, one vegetalbe, and one meat. Each was just great with the rice and naan bread. This is a place I would recommend again.
