Loved the food. Authentic flavorful Indian food without the usual heavy cream and oil ,found in most Indian restaurants. It was a buffet so cant say much about the service. Wasnt very crowded. Ladies restroom had no paper napkins. But the smell and taste of the food was as good as the food I have had at the homes of my Indian friends. Will definitely visit again next time I am in terre haute.

Wonderful South Indian cuisine, lots of vegetarian options. The dosas are excellent, although they vary in shape from week to week. The masala dosas sometimes have the masala as a side, which is a bit disconcerting. The sambhar is hit and miss, but the fish dishes are quite good. There is no alcohol service yet, although there is promise of one. The only other complaint is the service; depending on the server and the kitchen, it can be quite slow. Probably best to order an appetizer!

Often, when you run across an Indian restaurant in the more rural areas of Indiana or Illinois, you'll find good food, but also food that has been rendered bland, because the cooks are afraid they're recipes will be too spicy for people who've never been lucky enough to have tried great Indian food. Then, you'll go to Chicago or other large cities and visit Indian restaurants that have to compete against other Indian restaurants to earn the business of a large clientele of people from that part of the World, that exists there. You're lucky if you get to eat in one of these places. This is one of those such places. Persis Indian Grill is the real deal. It's what food from this cuisine is supposed to taste like. And when I refer to spiciness I am not talking about hot. I'm talking about aromatic, flavorful spices, in just the right proportions. Their buffet goes till 3 or 4 in the afternoon, stop in and sample some of the dishes they're serving that day. You'll be glad you did. And you won't be able to leave there not being full. LOL

We had dinner two days back and were pleasantly surprised by the flavors, reminded us of our fav places to eat in India. Very authentic and delicious. Cant wait to go back for Chilli Paneer and Samosa Chaat. Outstanding! I strongly recommend if you like Indian flavors or are interested in trying Indian.

This is the newest Indian restaurant in Terre Haute and it focuses on dishes typical of south India but also has some excellent choices of Indo-Chinese dishes. The food choices are varied and full of flavor. The sambaar, a staple for south Indian cuisine, is variable in flavor and consistency. The restaurant just recently started offering dosas and these are large and tasty, the paper dosas are nice and crispy. There are the occasional glitches of a new restaurant which is why I only rated very good. I am sure you will be satisfied and happy with your meal
