We went here last night on a groupon. Had a good experience. Excellent, attentive service (not dismissive, as we might have worried, once we showed our groupon). Our food was freshly cooked and hot. Not everything was to exactly my taste....but for me Indian cuisine is an ongoing experiment.... The Chicken Vandaloo (my entree) was quite delicious. Certainly someplace we'd... More

Always enjoy dining here. The assorted bread basket is a must for us. Also we like the tandori options. Only thing missing is the chopped onions for the bread, only able to get them at an Indian restaurant in Frederick. Generous portions and food always comes out hot.

This is my wife favorite place to eat whenever she is craving for Indian foods. The table are nice and clean up. Staff always friendly and prompt to assist. Food is just as good as the service. Although I wish there was more variety of food, I just feel like each time we go there they have the same food.... More

My husband and I went here after exploring the area a bit. We were greeted promptly and seated within a minute. Shortly after we were brought our waters and some complimentary poppadoms with 2 sauces. The sauces were so delicious we asked for a second helping of the poppadom. We got 3 appetizer- lamb kebabs in a delicious tomato/ herb... More

Everything on their lunch buffet is wonderfully decadent. Taste so good. I will go back anytime I am in the area. I Love India Palace and my son's love it as well.

This is worst place. They look at money not quality and taste of the food. For example out of 10 times two are good. Suddenly on Mother's day they increased the price around $21 per adult. But the quality is worst, no tasty at all. Next day my wife suffered from stomach ache. I recommend not to go to this... More

India palace is one of the few gems in Germantown. The best value is the daily lunch buffet. There is always large selection and variety of both vegetarian and non vegetation choices. The nann is brought hot and fresh to you before you even return to your seat. Included in the price is mango lasse and dessert.The staff always treat... More

A friend told us about this restaurant, so we tried it. We've been to a lot of Indian restaurants in the US and Europe, and this is one of the best. The buffet had a lot of items you don't usually see at buffets in Indian restaurants--chicken vindaloo and shrimp biryani, for example. The chunks of meat in the various... More
