“Worth the trip”
Reviewed March 7, 2009

We were pleased to find that Passage to India still has an excellent chef. Our Biryani and navratan korma were excellent! Business was slow, due to the recession. No problem getting a table and the food was very good. Glad they are not skimping on the ingredients. Well worth a trip.

“It's Can Be Really Good Or Just Okay.”
Reviewed July 3, 2008

Passage to India is located in the Lawrenceville Shopping Center. The inside of the restaurant is nice. I usually go for the weekly lunch buffet. Sometimes the food is perfectly seasoned and other days it's blander than hospital food. I think it's because there are different chefs, so what you eat one day may not be cooked by the same person on another day. My favorite thing is the mint chutney and achar pickles alongside tender Lamb Rogan Josh. Also they make the BEST Aloo Tikki (small seasoned potato pancakes).

The waitstaff is kind and attentive. Very personable atmosphere. Friday's are usually packed. They offer a dinner buffet now, as well as Sunday brunch which I have yet to try. Once I do my review of the food at Passage to India may be higher.

These guys have an awesome fresh buffet, extreeeemely good Tandoori chicken, extensive vegetarian selections, and they pass my Naan test- many places, particularly during lunch/buffet hours, have a pile-o-naan sitting on a warmer on the buffet table. Not here; Naan is made on-demand. Huge points for this.
