We found the menu and food quite satisfactory and the service was friendly. We were served promptly. There is a wide choice of foods available but the quality was just about average for a place of this sort. On the other hand, the price was very reasonable.

looking at the name, we went to this place anticipating a nice indian meal, but were quite disappointed with the taste. the decor was good but the food was not tasty or spicy but very bland and very pricey.

There are new owners who brought in a Turkish chef. Also, there is still an Indian chef. Both cuisines are excellent. The Turkish food was authentic and as good as restaurants in New York. It is wonderfully spiced. The Turkish food is on the menu and there is still an Indian buffet. The buffet is much better than it was... More

We were pleased to find that Passage to India still has an excellent chef. Our Biryani and navratan korma were excellent! Business was slow, due to the recession. No problem getting a table and the food was very good. Glad they are not skimping on the ingredients. Well worth a trip.

Passage to India is located in the Lawrenceville Shopping Center. The inside of the restaurant is nice. I usually go for the weekly lunch buffet. Sometimes the food is perfectly seasoned and other days it's blander than hospital food. I think it's because there are different chefs, so what you eat one day may not be cooked by the same...

These guys have an awesome fresh buffet, extreeeemely good Tandoori chicken, extensive vegetarian selections, and they pass my Naan test- many places, particularly during lunch/buffet hours, have a pile-o-naan sitting on a warmer on the buffet table. Not here; Naan is made on-demand. Huge points for this.
