I went here for the first time tonight. You walk in and there is the smell of spices that is not necessarily pleasant. This seems to be a peculiarity to some ethnic, many Indian, restaurants. I am not sure if it is because of not having a good ventilation system in the kitchen or a deliberate choice of the operators to fill up the dining area with these smells. Thank God, our brains are programmed to ignore noxious stimuli after a few minutes.
I do not like carpet for a restaurant's flooring. It might be great for hiding dirt and food/drinks, but for the same reason, it is a great environment for bugs and everything unhealthy.
I ordered the "Kabob Lover's" dish for one. $24. Includes Soup, Desert, a vegetarian dish, and a sampling of these Kabobs: Shrimp (one), Mahi Mahi (One bite), Chicken Tikkeh (one bite), Chicken Tandoori (one quarter), Seekh (Ground beef or lamb?, one skewer), Full plate of rice.
The food is definitely more than enough for two people, maybe even three regular-sized (nowadays "regular" is overweight. I mean the old/traditional regular) women.
Everything tasted great. Even though there was too much food, I wish there were more of the kabobs and less of the vegetarian dish. Just one shrimp, one bite (cube) of chicken....I want more.....
Halfway thru the course, I realized they forgot my soup.......How could they? Where would I fit it? Thank God they forgot it.
I also ordered a Mango Lassi for drink which was tasty.
Being the demanding diner that I am, I was obligated to point out the MIA, i.e.; the soup.
They were apologetic and offered to bring it out. I declined and asked if I could have some Chai (Persian for Tea, same word in Indian) instead. They accepted.The desert was HUGE, enough for 2 t o4 people.
When they brought the bill and after I paid it, they again offered to get the soup for me in a to go container. I declined.
I did appreciate the fact that they took ownership of their mistake and made every effort to make up for it.
This reminded me of my horrible experience last night at Pars cuisine where I pointed out the inferior quality (poorly prepared) food to the waiter and the issue of waiting 15 minutes for a refill of my drink and the owner chose to hide in kitchen rather than come out and address/acknowledge the issues and at the very least offer an apology for the delay in getting my refill, even though an American owner would volunteer to take the charge off the bill.
These guys at India Palace have class and the loser at Pars cuisine does not have any.
