We visited this vegetarian restaurant last week during the Art Fair. We were easily able to choose a tasty meal in short time from many choices on the buffet and lost no time in getting back to visiting the Fair. Food is both delicious and...More

Not sure about the Indian food because we stopped for their gluten free bakery called simple pleasures. They had a nice selection of vegan and gluten free desserts. The chocolate pie was great. The service was excellent.

I can't imagine how anyone would dislike this restaurant. Even if you love meat more than you love your children, the food is so flavorful at Earthen Jar, you'll come away happy. And smiling. The decor is pure collegetown, the place is small, the plates...More

The title says it all. If you want excellent authentic vegetarian food. Very friendly staff. All Indian food. It's buffet style. They have about 8 tables. You can make it really spicy if you want. Would definitely recommend. They also do take out/carry away.

One of the best Indian restaurants anywhere. Buffet style, pay by the pound, clean up after yourself when done. No frill, because they don't need it, the food speaks for itself. Amazing dishes full of amazing flavor. Some of the best Indian food I have...More

The Earthen Jar is one of our favorite Indian restaurants- especially on a cold winter's day. Don't let vegan scare you away- the food here is out of the world and the flavors are incredible! Always polite and respectful service. I often stop in for...More
