Having never actually been to the Indian sub-continent, I cannot say I know what authentic Indian food should taste like. That said, House of India is my favorite in the area. We first tried House of India over ten years ago. Over the years, we've tried numerous other Indian restaurants around us and always leave feeling that House of India does it best. Excellent Nan. Tikka Masala is wonderfully complex and delicious. Desserts are very good. Also, the lunch buffet is terrific.
