“Good local Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Best local Indian fare. Well cooked(but avoid the buffet), the service is slow but very kind. The food isvery well flavored and tastes home cooked. Portions and prices should be improved, ask for Tahira, the hostess. She is the sweets lady with a warm welcoming smile. We always enjoy the food - both eat in and take out,

“Unfortunately Just Strip-Mall Indian”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

After all the good reviews for this restaurant for the lunch buffet we thought we would try it for dinner. While the service was friendly and attentive, the food turned out to be very ordinary and bland. Quantity was not lacking but inspired cuisine certainly was. Certainly nothing special or worthy of a repeat trip. We have been to many Indian restaurants in the US and England and judge the food at India Grille to be towards the bottom. One true measure is how well the lamb is trimmed for the lamb dishes - in this case not very well as many chunks were fatty or hard to chew. Spices were very muted, perhaps as a compromise to the uninitiated palate.

Between Newark, DE and Philly, the best Indian restaurant remains India Palace on Maryland Ave.

“Great Lunch Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I was invited to lunch at the India Grille by a work colleague and was pleased with the outcome. There is a decent selection of Indian appetizers, entrees and desserts and they were all tasty. My standard way of measuring the quality of an Indian eatery is with the Chicken Biryani and the one here was decent.
I will definitely be coming back for lunch, which is recommendation enough in my view.

“Amazing Lunch Buffet- A Gem of a Restaurant Easily Overlooked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is easily the best Indian restaurant I've been to in the area. The lunch buffet is incredible- it tastes as rich and as fresh as Indian food I have eaten in the home of a friend. There are many vegetarian options- and a variety of spice levels (not just blandly mild like many buffets). The staff is wonderful and helpful . I have come here for dinner as well, the portions are generous and they have the ability to please the lover of mild and the one who wants their face to sweat while eating. Their spicier dishes aren't just hot- they are filled with complex flavors. A wonderful place, I wish I lived nearer so I could visit more often.
