This is the best restaurant (especially Friday- Sunday lunch buffet) in Fargo. The foods are super fresh and TRULY Indian! In fact, my wife and I travelled to various parts of USA- except for some restaurants in Jackson Heights, NY - we cannot find such a good Indian restaurant anywhere else (not even in big cities like Chicago, LA, Houston,...

While on a road trip, it's not always easy to find tasty food. My husband loves spicy food so the spicy shrimp dish sure hit the spot. The samosas were fair, maybe a little dry. We were happy with the rest of our meal. If you like international cuisine, I recommend this place.

What a great find. We were excited to learn that they offer a buffet, what a great way to experience Indian food. We loved Indian food so what not experience a little bit of what is offered. The Naan was amazing. The vegetarian options were reasonable. The Staff was great.

The positive reviews for this restaurant are not exaggerated. We come from a town that is known for international restaurants and there are several that specialize in Indian food, but none of them serve Indian food as wonderful as this one, and at the lunch buffet no less. We were headed home on the interstate and found this on Trip... More

Excellent lunch buffet with a variety of authentic food tastes from India. Place is clean and the price was reasonable for what was presented as options. Friendly servers and in fact, the owner came to another group's table with a complimentary glass of chocolate milk for the couple's child without asking.

I looked up on Tripadvisor to find a place close to the hotel and this came up as being a highly rated restaurant. I love Indian food and therefore thought I would give it a try, not getting my hopes up to high in Fargo, ND. The ambiance was nice when we arrived and we were quickly seated and given... More

Wonderful place to eat if you like Indian food. There are a couple of other Indian restaurants in the area but none can compare to Passage to India.

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

Passage to India opened in August 2005 and is located inside the Westfield Strip Mall Fargo. Since then, Chef Alham Ali, Chef Birkha Moger, and Chef Sam Rangaswamy have been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures to suit the Midwestern palate. Passage to India's interior, as recently remodeled, reflects the urban sensibilities of Fargo's growth while also paying tribute to India's storied past and culture. The restaurant features a daily lunch buffet with over 20 options including a cold bar, vegetarian dishes, and non-vegetarian dishes (highly recommended for first-timers). Following lunch, the restaurant serves full service a La Carte up till close at 9:30p.
