I have always been a fan of Palki and recall visiting this restaurant in earlier days, and having pleasant experiences. Recently however, I have found that the food taste has been somewhat inconsistent. ....not sure if there was a change of chefs...and perhaps the reason for this. I would however recommend the Paneer Tikka. Service from the wait staff also... More

After making a reservation the previous day, my guests and I arrived to a semi packed restaurant but was seated to our table in a cordial manner. After ten minutes of receiving our menus no one came to our table. The servers seemed flustered and went up and down the corridor. We tried countless times to get their attention but... More

I had and unplanned dinner with friends and teenagers (i.e. no reservation) on a Thursday night. The ambiance throughout is totally east Indian and appealing- from the fabric draped ceilings to the background music. The food was fantastic and so good! we asked for mild spice for the six of us and some vegetarian items for one person. Service was... More

I invited some friends at Palki, letting them chose the place as they were local, therefore much more knowledgeable than me. We had a selection of dishes and really enjoyed all of them. Prices are reasonable, and very important, the cuisine is genuine and delicate. A good address!

This restaurant is a cozy one; delicious tasting traditional indian cuisine. The service is exceptional, the warm & friendly staff cater to your needs. Its one of my favorite places to visit, I especially love their choice of fresh juices and their lamb tika.

This place made some nice improvements over the years. Their service has improved along with the flavors and taste of authentic Indian food. It's a good place to order take away regularly. For visitors, the area is safe, with parking roadside or in front. The place is ok to dine in. Just remember it's not local but authentic Indian, and... More

We came for dinner for my sister's birthday. We were greeted a bit rudely. Our drinks order was very simple but there were at least two mixups with it, perhaps more than two. At the end of the night we were charged for a drink that was brought in error but never ordered. Overall the service was unfriendly. The food... More
