I went with my son and his friend to celebrate finishing a semester of Law School with all A's. It was the perfect place- as we all love authentic freshly prepared Indian Food. None of us had ever been to Star of India before. We each enjoyed a lovely pureed lentil dal soup perfectly spiced to warm us up and vegetable samosa appetizers with the little tray of dipping sauces. With our dinner, came a fresh yummy order of garlic and cheesy nan. I've never seen such an extensive menu of Nan! I skipped on the rice in lieu of the nan. We shared orders of Shajahani Biryani delicately spiced with fresh veges. This is a meal in itself, but we also ordered Chicken Korma that had the most unusual flavor and richness, and a lamb dish. Everything was absolutely delicious. Our taste buds were in heaven. We topped off the evening with gulab jaman that you must save room for. We brought home some leftovers for lunch today that will probably serve two tonight. The portions are large. The servers were all excellent. Our water was never empty, and the food didn't stop coming! The location is very convenient if you're anywhere downtown, but it's hard to see the store front --so be sure to bring the address with you so you don't miss it. We parked in front of the Courthouse as the offices there were already closed. Tons of spaces there. The restaurant could use some updating, but the ambiance is casual and there are plenty of tables. Perfect place to go after a day of skiing or to be pampered with tasty comfort foods. Will definitely go back. I found some coupons on restaurant.com and it seems if you look at their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/greatindianfoodsaltlake...there's always a buy two, get one free and other deals every week. Just scroll around. I understand they have a killer lunch buffet M-S and that they'll deliver to hotels. Very nice! One of the few restaurants open on Sundays, too. They also have a full bar, so you can enjoy a drink. I had a mango lassi...non alchy but it was amazing.
