Had lunch here with colleagues. The lunch consist of a buffet with approximately 12 dishes. The food was just OK, typical buffet fare. The interior and exterior were a bit shabby. The staff was very friendly and the prices reasonable.

You always can tell when you see the people of their culture enjoying the feasts of a restaurant. This one is one of those gems. It was a Sunday, which was brunch style. At least 4 types of curry, naan, salad, 2 types of rice, chicken, 2 types of dessert. In particular one dessert. A fried donut hole doused in... More

We had dinner here. There were lots of choices on the menu. The service was nice. The two dishes we got: peas with mushrooms and chana masala, were okay. The naan was good. I would go back to try their other dishes.

It is really not a GREAT restuarant as the name says. I am a regular customer to the restaurant. They literally charge you for EVERYTHING. The young man at the counter also charges for cracking a smile at the customers. He really needs to learn some respect and treat the customers well. They are not running a charity. We pay... More

We have been missing this place! The Great Indian Restaurant is our fav place to dine in the QC. Not only is the food excellent, but the table service is always great as well. Whether you know this cuisine or not, you can find your way around the menu because it's grouped into sections and there are good descriptions, plus... More

I've tried a number of Indian places in the US and abroad and this one measures up. I had the lamb vindaloo and asked for it hot. I asked for more heat and they gladly obliged. I would have liked I hotter, but the flavor was good and they are cautious. While eating I noticed that most of the patrons... More

Very Good Indian in Moline. Great meat Samosas. Muligatawny soup is excellent. All main dishes made to order to your spice level. Place is a little run down but the food makes up for lack of atmosphere! Enjoy!

This is the best Indian restaurant in Quad Cities. The food is good and spicy. I liked it. The service is really slow. The food is worth the wait. I would recommend this restaurant, if someone wants to try authentic Indian food.

Thank Luv T
