OK for Amherst where there are not a lot of choices. However, you could drive over to Northampton where the Indian food is much better. Portions are small, and some dishes are overly spiced. Order beer, not wine. Acceptable but no better than average.

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!
