You would never know how good the food is by looking at the store front. But walk inside and see just how plentiful and varied the buffet is. The buffet isn't cheap but it is good. I really enjoyed the dahl and butter chicken. There is plenty of seating. The service (when needed) is quick and friendly. They clearly know... More

Too many non-descript Indian restaurants populate nondescript suburban strip malls, but House of India is NOT one of them. Although the location may be non-descript, the food is very, very good. The dining room is pleasant, if standard issue. The service is friendly and competent. But it's the food that stands out and of course that's what you want in... More

This is the only place we go to for Indian buffet. They have the best lunch buffet not only in Howard County but I think in MD. And it's cheap, too, for the quality of food.

OK, it's a hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall. Service can be a bit "iffy". But there is no denying that the chef knows what he is doing. I have tried just about everything on the menu, but I always return to any of their sauced dishes served in a heated bowl with jasmine rice - yummy! Large range of... More

Went there for dinner and had the dinner for 2. Everything was amazing. Started with the lentil soup, excellent. Moved onto the Chicken Tikka and Sheek Kabab, both very tasty. Then we had the Vegetable Korma and Chicken curry. Everything was excellent. It was very hard to pick a favorite. We ran out of the basmati rice that came with... More

My husband and his coworkers come here every time they are in town for business. This time I came along on the trip. The food was wonderful. There isn't a bad dish. My husband prefers the Lamb Shahi Korma. It is good. I had the Chicken Tikka Masala. It was so delicious. The staff was very attentive and kept our... More

A very warm and quiet atmosphere welcomes you to the restaurant. The waitstaff are friendly and efficient; most of the service is done on carts. The chicken tikka masala is great, so it the chicken tandoori. Would go back anytime!

This was my first visit to the House of India restaurant. I will be going back. The great thing about Indian cuisine is that there are so many different regions. The House of India seems to focus on some regions that the other Indian restaurants do not. The flavors are just a little bit different, the spices are more attuned... More

We visited House of India on Valentines Day 2016 - the restaurant was busy and based on the other reviews, we had very high expectations. We frequent really good Indian restaurants, like Chutney or Ananda in the area, and was hoping for a similar or better experience. Unfortunately, it wasn't even close. Staring with the very slow and inattentive service... More
