Okay, I'm being a little silly, but really, the food was wonderful. I had just flown into OAK from a not-so-pleasure trip, my wife picked me up and we came to India Palace because Alameda is so convenient to OAK. Walked into the quiet peaceful environment and inhaled the rich aromas and felt immediately at ease. The menu is extensive,... More

We came to this restaurant based on other trip advisor reviews and now I need to write a review as well for the terrific service we received. We arrived at the restaurant at 4:30 pm and they open at 5 pm. We thought would have to wait outside in the heat for another 30 min. Vicky somehow saw us and... More

Had the food here when traveling through. Service was decent and the food was really good. It was not super busy, which surprises me considering the quality of the food.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here; everything was very fresh. We got here 45 minutes before closing and we tried everything and we thought we were going to get dried up leftovers but we were very wrong. This place is amazing and will be returning soon

There aren't many Indian restaurants in Alameda, and this is really your best bet. Consistent food quality, decent portions, nice lunch buffet, lots of space for large parties. It's also kind of pretty inside, with a sort of exotic feel but not too kitschy (I love kitsch. I miss the curtain of blue beads. I bet they were hard to... More

We had out of town company and the choice was between Cuban food and Indian food. The guests elected for Indian and it turned out to be a good selection. The precise dishes escape me right now except the beef which I found to be very tasty. While the restaurant was busy, the noise level was acceptable and we could... More

We remembered it as being better. Perhaps they have changed chefs. Service is still good as is the food but know that it could be better. We have not tried the lunch buffet maybe better than what we experienced for dinner.
