a very popular resturant with a very average food. While the choice is good, none of the dishes are really appetising. If your idea of food is something with spices in it, then try it.

This place has several soups and main course options not found at most Indian buffet. I'm a big fan of chili chicken and this buffet had that item.

The service is lacking and the food was average. Panier was dry. Mango ice cream was good. Sides of tablecloths were dirty and the fabric on the chairs were heavily stained.

Me and friends were in Indianapolis over the weekend and were looking for a restaurant near Indy airport (where our hotel was). We shortlisted two restaurants but decided to go to India Palace since it has Sunday buffet....and we were not disappointed. They have good spread of different dishes and were appropriately spicy/hot. The service is not great and staff... More

I and my friend visited this restaurant in June last week. We wanted to have Indian cuisine, so chose this restaurant. Poor service from staff. Ambiance is good. Food is average. And it doesn't feel fresh. We had ordered veg and non-veg thali. It was really not worth buying that. I had asked for spicy veg thali and they had... More

I hesitantly accepted an invitation to eat at India Palace with a friend even though I have food issues. Thought I would give it a shot and perhaps surprise myself. From the moment I walked in, I knew this was a mistake. The spicy smells overwhelmed me. I do not like...spicy or bitter foods, whatsoever. The host was polite and... More

After driving 90 minutes to get to this restaurant for the lunch buffet, I was NOT disappointed. Rarely do you find, in the United States, a Indian buffet serving goat curry plus chicken tikka, chicken curry and Tandori chicken. And the goat curry is delicious. The fish pokara was a pleasant surprise indeed. The cold salad bar including mango ice... More

Buffet seven days a week! This is the only Indian restaurant in town (that I know of!) what serves goat meat at lunch! It is inexpensive! A very good place where you can have lunch with your friends!
