As others have noted, it's changed. The front staff always tries to be helpful but the food has suffered lately. My last few meals have been take out but it just doesn't dazzle me the way it once did. It's not consistent, lacks taste and texture, and despite repeated requests for mild for my 87 year-old mother its still too... More

First...don't waste your time with this place. Go to the newer Taj India on downtown Elm Street instead, they blow away India Palace. Great service, great lunch buffet, incredible flavor, and lively atmosphere. I used to enjoy India Palace for years and frequented the Manchester and Chelmsford MA locations regularly, but will never return after my last experience. Both locations... More

Found this restaurant by accident. Small and set up with heavy wood furniture that provides a real India atmosphere. I had a Tandoori mixed platter that was very good but had some overcooked meat pieces in it. Service was good, price was reasonable, about $15 for a platter of so full of various meats that I could hardly finish it.

We loved this place. The food has always been perfect. The staff has always been helpful and friendly. When we got there earlier this week, we found that the decor has been stepped up a bit. They have new tables with glass tops and beautiful carvings inside. New chairs. You now get complimentary papadum and chutney upon arrival. Things were... More

Despite lackluster reviews we decided to try something different while in Manchester. We made selections for take out. Relatively quick. It was average probably because we didn't know what to expect. While waiting the dining room doesn't feel very inviting. Will give them another shot.

We were thrilled to find a local Indian restaurant while traveling this weekend. Even better--a lunch buffet which allowed us to try a variety of dishes. The okra dish was excellent as well as the chicken tikka masala, and more! Everything excellently prepared and delicious, and the wait staff was very attentive. Can't wait to go back!

We used to love this place. We would drive nearly fifty minutes to eat at it. When they were in the other plaza, they seemed to work harder to keep patrons warm and there was an overall atmosphere of welcome and happiness. One's water glass could not go down an inch before someone swooped in and topped off for you.... More

Our last visit was an improvement over the past recent visit where the food was OK but the service lackluster and the restaurant not well set up or decorated. Having been customers for years at their former location, we are a little disappointed at their new location. However this time the room was decorated with the lovely Indian art and... More

It's sad. We used to eat here all the time and then they moved and things don't seem the same. We didn't see the waiters that we knew for years, and we ordered medium spice in our dishes, but one of the dishes came out so spicy that we couldn't eat it. Odd because I like spicy food! Not sure... More

This has been our favorite restaurant in Manchester for years. We have made the over 1 hour trip to Manchester for dinner and have always done take-out on our way through. We haven't been there for a few months yet we went yesterday. What a disappointment. The atmosphere is not as nice as a warehouse. Cement floor and tired walls... More
