Food is delicious and service was good. I could have given excellent rating but we ordered Paneer Bhurjee and it came with gravy. It seems it was shred paneer in paneer tikka masala gravy. The taste of dish was awesome but PLEASE that is not called paneer bhurji. Dal makhani and paneer chilli were very delicious.

Thank VishTravel

The first time we went there for Dinner. We ordered from the Menu. Goat Curry and Chicken Tikka Masala were good. Goat Biryani is also too good.But the next time which is yesterday on a Sunday we went for Buffet. Very bad food. All the curries looked like with lots of water rather than the ingredients. The utensils they put... More

The restaurant is located well above the Housatonic River, so the view of the river through the huge windows or the outside deck is lovely especially during the summer. We regularly (typically at least weekly) do their lunchtime buffet, which we're delighted with. The owner is friendly and personable - the waitstaff often speak English as a distinct second language... More

Good all-round Indian restaurant, although the dinner menu is noticeably better than the lunch buffet, which can be a little bland. Nice dining room and attentive staff, also. Doesn't measure up to New Haven standards but pretty decent for the Valley.

I was surprised to see 4.5 rating for this restaurant. After I taste food here I would like to give it 1. After seeing good ratings I have been here for dinner first time, I ordered Lamb vindaloo and garlic nans. Lamb was undercooked and taste was not even 10% close to how vindaloo taste. Instead of lamb I thought... More

I've had the lunch buffet a few times since i moved to this area last year. The food is always fresh and delicious. The wait staff is very nice and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Where I live there isn't a wide variety of take-out options so discovering Baingan Indian was great. We haven't eaten in, so this review is about take-out only. The food is delicious and the little extra snacks they include with your order are a nice touch. We've tried most of the naan breads - all great. We have several favorite... More

Sometimes I don't find too much options to eat vegetarian but no big deal as they have at least enough to accommodate. They are very good in service too and not like other Indian... More

We stopped here on our way home from Jones Tree Farm and was pleasantly surprised to find such a good Indian Restaurant in such a remote spot. Food was great, flavorful and spicy per request! Staff was equally wonderful and helpful with the many questions that I had. Definitely reccommended

Thank cmpritch
