Small restaurant with basic decor and furniture and the wonderful aroma of fresh spices in the air, At 8pm,the dining room was close to full, Many families some with small children, most east Indian enjoying their supper. Menu is extensive and you will surely find something you like. The service was friendly, our waitress was very helpful. The food was prepared quickly and was very tasty. Fresh ingredients and skillfully cooked. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone as a welcome break from pizza and burgers!

We really enjoyed the food at the India Cafe. The dining room is super basic, lunch room style, so if you are looking for atmosphere, this is not your place. But the cooking was great. I got the Tandoori mixed grill. At most places, the Tandoori chicken is dried out, but at the India Cafe is was very tender. The naan was fresh and not too heavy. For the veggie dish, we asked for medium spicy and it was exactly right. The service was friendly but basic (with pay at the register), but the value was excellent.

Ate here Saturday afternoon and had the buffet. Best curry chicken I have had. Other dishes also very good. $10pp. Bathroom was in dire need of a deep clean...wonder how the kitchen looked?

Went to this restaurant on a chance, we were a little concerned when pulling into the strip mall and approaching the restaurant, however as soon as we went in, all concerns went away. The service was excellent, the server walked us through the menu and made a few suggestions which were excellent.

The Butter Chicken was excellent - not your traditional creamy tomato soup like sauce. It was the color of tumeric with fresh coriander. It came with plain basmati rice and I ordered a Garlic Naan bread and had Indian Tea. I was in heaven - don't let the fact it's in a strip mall fool you. These peoples know their food and treat customers very good service.
