Indus is a very good Indian restaurant. While West Palm Beach is not known for a wide variety of high quality ethnic restaurants, there are definitely some worth knowing about. Indus Indian & Herbal Cuisine is one of them.
We've eaten at Indus a number of times and we have always been pleased. Indus is somewhat off of the beaten path. It is located in a small strip mall just off of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, a commercial street full of office buildings and large, box stores. There is plenty of free parking directly in front of the restaurant. The dining room is large and brightly lit. There is a full bar. The menu is extensive with offerings using recipes from north and south India. We've tried many different menu items. We particularly enjoy the Dosa, a South Indian specialty that doesn't often make its way onto Indian menus. On our most recent visit, we had vegetable Pakora, Shrimp Mughalai Cashew Korma, a mixed Tandoori platter and a variety of breads. All were delicious. That was in addition to the complimentary starters and sauces brought to the table when we were seated.
Our only off note of the evening was somewhat slow service. The restaurant was hosting a large, private party and the kitchen was not able to keep pace for the other diners in the restaurant. This was the first time we have encountered this problem at Indus and we'll chalk that up to a one-time issue that we hope not to have again.
We think that you'll enjoy your meal here particularly if you are looking for well-executed, delicious Indian cooking.
