“Delicious fresh authentic food, wonderfully pleasant owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

My husband and I regularly order from this place, and have, for the past year and a half. The food is flavorful and we have never had a problem with them. The staff who work there go out of their way to say hello to you and will stop and have a conversation with you. I love having an Indian restaurant so close to me that has such great food!

“A nice find in Lewiston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

On Bates College's Parents Weekend, this place was packed. It's clearly a family-run business, so the service was a bit hectic. But, the food was top-notch. You could tell that these are family recipes,

“Great place in a crummy town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

In all fairness, it's hard to disappoint me when it comes to Indian food. But theirs is pretty good. When passing through Lewiston over two days, we ate here.....twice. It should be noted that Lewiston is sort of an armpit-like town (with a ton of potential) and so it might not be as difficult to stand out here as it'd be in a larger, more developed and populated place. I will not neglect to give them their due credit though.
The food is good. The service is great and the price is right. Oh, and they have a Sunday buffet that I will say has more variety than some Indian buffets in Washington, DC. Though it doesn't take much, as they usually only have like four things. Silly. Anyhow, this is probably the best restaurant in the whole area up there, to tell you the truth. If I'm ever passing through again, I'll definitely eat here. I hope that it does very well.

“fantastic lunch buffet, wonderful change of pace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you get bored of the food in Lewiston like I do, check out Mother India for lunch. They have great, authentic food for 6.99 i believe. Its a deal and it's delicious. They do carry out as well. nice dining room and good location. Explore your city!

“A Taste of India in Downtown Lewiston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very reasonable buffet, something for all tastes. Service was very good. I've ordered from the menu as well, and it was very good. The chutneys are very good, and can be very spicy!
