The like their buffet here, the speical "early bird" discount, you will have to use cash, which we did not prepared (8 people) so we did not get it. This place seems very difficult for customers to use coupon (I've been rejected for using coupon for dinner because the dishes I ordered, which was not clear on the coupon). The... More

Went to India Palace with coworkers for lunch. The food (dhal, basmati rice, butter chicken, Tikka masala, goat masala are just a few of the many choices) were all exceptional, the staff and service was superior, and the price was right. I recommend going to this place for lunch or dinner if ever you're in the Germantown,MD area.

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

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
