Good food! I love the curry here! Chicken tikka masala never let me down! I came at 2:50pm, and they are supposed to close at 3, but they still let me in. Also they offered very good service!

Only Indian in Amherst; there are several better choices in Northampton. Typical menu but food is so-so. Pricing is reasonable. Seating but no ambiance.

I always enjoy my visits to Paradise of India. Food is a little cheaper than India House in Noho which is the premier Indian restaurant in the region. Service is quicker. A great reliable eat!
