“What a disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

Its hard to screw up Indian food, right? Just add more spice and butter and everything turns out fine.

So what is the deal with the Samosa Factory. Sweet, watery Raita; flavorless rice (really flavorless everything), Pakoras that tasted like they had been previously frozen and dont get me started on the mater paneer or the barta- gooey, flavorless, void of spice.

On the plus side the Naan and the cilantro chutney were passable, but hardly worth the trip.

Sad to report, but this one is just not worth the calories.

“dont judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

this restaurant is one of the hidden jewels of las vegas. it is tucked away in a strip mall. but, dont judge it by its location. the food is beyond good. if you luv exploring new cuisines...this is the place for indian food. the garlic naan is to die for, so is the lamb and tandori dishes offered here. the service is also great

“BEST INDIAN FOOD in LAS VEGAS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2011

Excellent gourmet Indian food with personal touch provided by its owner, Richard, who also serves as the waiter. Always excellent and consistent with dishes (incl. sauces) I've not found anywhere else. For this reason, I return there often!

I live in Reno but I'm in Vegas twice a month. I never miss an opportunity to eat at this wonderful little restaurant. The food compares very favorably to the best Indian restaurants I've visited around the world.

“A hole in the wall worth diving into.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2010

The Samosa Factory offers wonderful Indian cuisine at affordable prices. It is some of the best I have ever tasted. The only things that my girlfriend and I could suggest are:

More rice (basmati-yum)
Indian Female wait staff

You will not be disappointed.
