I have, admittedly, not tried the buffet. I grabbed some takeout at the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. I got the chance to speak with the owner who mixes all of the spices for his dishes. I have never eaten in the restaurant but it seems a comfortable enough seating area. I was able to get spices...

Feels like a family run place through and through. Not a very nice interior. The dishes we had were all good. Not too heavy on the cream, which I appreciate. The Marsala Chana was very good and so was the Palak Paneer. Both had great balance.

I was having a serious craving for Indian food, so I typed 'Indian food' into Google Maps on my phone. Pals popped up and it was close to my house, so we went there. My husband has never tried Indian food before and has always made faces when I make it at home or bring it home from other places.... More

My wife and I are on a bit of an Indian kick and came across Pal's via a Groupon. For about 30 total we had butter chicken, samosa, curry chicken and naan. All was great. Check it out.

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
