We went in for lunch on a Sunday morning a little before noon. There was no one in the restaurant except my husband and I. We chose the buffet instead of ordering from the menu. The selection of food was limited, especially when almost all the dishes taste like butter and milk. There was no curry or masala dishes, no... More

Pros: I've never eaten at an Indian restaurant before and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Cons: The establishment is extremely rundown and the gentleman that served us was not friendly. Maybe he was just having an off day.

I consider myself an expert of Indian Cuisine as I have eaten it all over the world. I have also gotten a chance to sample Indian food from just about every restaurant in West Michigan. I have to say, this is the one place that I get uncontrollable cravings for. The butter chicken along with the vegetable korma are SO... More

We happened to be there w/ a group of men (maybe 10) seated at a large table in another room. We kept joking that maybe they were mafia. ;) The place was casual, yet nice enough; certainly The place was not fancy, but also not run down. The food was good enough to come back, yet not to the can't-live-w/o-it... More

Don't judge it so harshly in terms of ambience. The food is so good it really makes the experience worth the decor compromise! Hands down hubby & I decided they have the best Pakora we have ever had! FYI (My hubby is Indian and has travelled the world) It was made in such a way that it was a mixed... More

Our intent was to eat at the Shiraz Grille off 28th street but we were turned away as reservations were needed on this Saturday evening. (something to note if you plan to eat there). So we needed to find a place to eat. We saw Pals as we drove back down 28th toward the E.Beltline and decided to check it... More

Few occasions we have done on premise dinning, and enjoyed every thing. Other Occasions, we have catered the food for more than 50 guests, it was genuine Punjabi Food and every body enjoyed.

I had a hankering for Indian food before a long road trip and so I went to Pals for the lunch buffet. Waiter was friendly and efficient, so off to a good start. The place is basic, even run down, but I eat at stalls in Asia so the ambience, even cleanliness, is not important to me eating solo. Perfect... More

I visited this restaurant again in May this year and I was disappointed. Food quality has gone down drastically and is nowhere close to a normal Indian restaurant. We ordered tandoori rotis and they were Tortilla's in reality, hard to bite and nowhere close to roti. They actually gave me pain in my stomach. Curries didn't taste fresh and felt... More

We love the food here. The decor is real basic, but it's also a great place to visit friends because you can hear them without the clutter of music and busyness.
