A friend and I came here, excited to try something new. Unfortunately, the service was awful. Both entrees were ordered in correctly, and when correct ones came we were charged for them. No apologies were made. Our servers rarely spoke to us, and we felt neglected overall. Not worth the trip. Try another Indian place in town!

The food is fresh and prepared as you like it, hot to mild. Service is professional and pleasant. The atmosphere is casual yet appealing. Authentically Indian!

Great authentic Indian food. Bread is good and the customer service is usually good. The owner is very nice as well. Lunch there is the best.

In a college town it's not always easy to find a great grown-up place to eat. India Pavilion will appeal to all ages, but it's definitely grown up food in the midst of a town filled with pizza and take out restaurants. The menu is large and extremely varied and includes vegetarian options. The lunch buffet is an excellent deal... More

We came here for the buffet lunch based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor and were quite disappointed. We are very familiar with Indian food and have eaten it in restaurants throughout the Unites States and a number of other countries and have never experienced such a low level of spice. Luckily they did have a bowl of a... More

It is one of the good places for having big lunch with your coworkers or friends. My favorite dish from here is chicken curry.

Food was below Average! Seriously if have eaten authentic Indian food in other cities this was bad. Service was very slow. High expectations very disappointing. Clearly preferred lighter skinned customers.
