I ate at the lunch buffet twice last week while in Fargo for business. The Naan was hot & lightly buttered, the rice was fragrant & fresh and the chicken & shrimp dishes were tasty with just the right amount of spice and depth. The beer was cold & fresh and served in a chilled glass. I'll be back.

I am well traveled and have had Indian food in major cities--Montreal, New York City, Washington, DC, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis, etc. In St. Maarten, I found a very traditional Indian Restaurant that the locals frequented and the food was excellent. The food at Passage to India is as good as the food I've had in any of these very traditional... More

Lots of reviews are for the buffet. I've only ever dined here for dinner so this review doesn't concern the buffet. The ambiance is fun. Since my last visit they have redone the layout of the dining room and it's much more intimate. The Bollywood videos on the central TV are almost too interesting as they can take attention away...

We found this off TripAdvisor and the food lives up to the reviews. The lamb korma was terrific! We also had some nan, which was worth it. They have a large menu and a wide selection, wish we could go back, but we don't live here.

The food, service and atmosphere were amazing! I've been India and many Indian restaurants in the US and this one is hands down awesome. We had the lamb korma, garlic naan and lamb samosas. The spices dance on your tongue for a truly wonderful experience. Definitely recommend!

I have been to Passage to India many times. Their food is usually very good, but it can vary from visit to visit. If you have a bad experience there, I would suggest not writing it off completely because it could be great the next time you go. They are very good at keeping the buffet filled. The ambiance is...

If you are in Fargo, ND at lunchtime try the Passage to India buffet ($9.95). Excellent selection of meats, vegetables, etc and even dessert. NOTE-The $9.95 price is only Monday through Thursday.

First time to try Indian food. We were apprehensive upon seeing the outside but glad we tried. The staff were helpful explaining the selection which was large. The food was flavorful and abundant. The bread was great. The inside was very clean and well kept. White tablecloths an linen on the table. A good place to eat.
