Welcome to Samrat! This place is in a funny spot up in the University Area but don't let that stop you! If you love Indian food like I do then this is the place. It is 3 flights up in an old Rite Aid building but once you get there you will be pleased. They have a lunch buffet as... More

Samrat was an important part of my life when I was a student at SU. When I first started going there as a freshman to satisfy my intense Indian food cravings, the food honestly wasn't that memorable. Then, when I was a junior, I believe that the quality of the food improved immensely. Perhaps they hired a new chef or... More

First, the building the restaurant is in was filthy with a funny (urine) smell. Second, when we arrived, the napkins we were given had what appeared to be little crumbs on them. Third, the three sauces that came out appeared to have been already used, as if pulled from another table. The green sauce had a spoon in it, and... More

We ate in this restaurant while driving from Buffalo to Massena. Wanted some good Indian food. It was quirt a distance from the highway, but it was worth the effort. There was no one except the staff as we went very late, but food was available. Most of the items were tasty. The place was clean and calm. There is... More

Went for the first Tim on recommendation of a friend. Started our meal with the Samrat Special soup. It was delicious. Perfectly seasoned and spiced. I had Lamb Tikka Masala and my date had Chicken Vindaloo. Both had excellent flavor. I highly recommend the Taj Mahal beer. One caution. If you don't like it hot, do not order spicy. What... More

Don't come here expecting anything but really good food and kind people. The lunch buffet is very fine.

I didn't know what to expect but several friends recommended me to go here. Curious about their sign out front for their buffet special, I finally made my way upstairs one day. It is a quaint little spot on the third floor of the building. They were attentive and helpful (as I had never had Indian food before) and made... More

We went for the lunch Buffett and it is good we had a guide with us. The restaurant is very plain and small but the food was hot and very tasty. The cook in small batches and refill the warmers frequently. The price was $9 and we all cfelt it was well worth the price.

Because Syracuse, NY has a large Asian population, we have a disproportionate number of Middle Eastern, Indian and East Asian food options for a small city. While it's still difficult to find a good Chinese restaurant (though Panda West and Fortune Hawaii fast food aren't bad), there are no less than five Indian restaurants in the Syracuse Metro area, so...
