Description: Passage to India opened in August 2005 and is located inside the Westfield Strip Mall Fargo. Since then, Chef Alham Ali, Chef Birkha Moger, and Chef Sam Rangaswamy have been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures to suit the Midwestern palate. Passage to India's interior, as recently remodeled, reflects the urban sensibilities of Fargo's growth while also paying tribute to India's storied past and culture. The restaurant features a daily lunch buffet with over 20 options including a cold bar, vegetarian dishes, and non-vegetarian dishes (highly recommended for first-timers). Following lunch, the restaurant serves full service a La Carte up till close at 9:30p.

“Really Outstanding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Many years ago, I had the pleasure of traveling to India and visiting in many ordinary homes where I was served lovely, home made Indian food. Later on, in London, I was able to reproduce that experience to some extent in the many Indian restaurants one can find there. In the U.S. it's been quite different, however. The food in almost all Indian restaurants I've been to here has been overpriced, prepared without any real expertise, and served in restaurants that always seem to have either a staffing, decor or bathroom hygiene issue. Imagine my surprise and delight to find Passage to India. Who would have thought Fargo could have a place so clean, so friendly and attentive, and with food that is steaming hot, authentic and well prepared!

“not our favorite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Trip Advisor had recommended this Indian restaurant so we went there. The service was excellent and lamb appetizer was GREAT, but the chicken curry “mildly spiced” was way too hot, and somewhat weird flavor - didn’t work for us.

“Great Dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Thank you for the great dinner. I ordered naan, palak paneer, and a mango lassi. Did not have to wait long. The food and service were great. Would definitely return here for another meal. Would recommend this place to others.

“First of many visits.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband and I were in Fargo for a couple of days and after reading the reviews on your web site and also the fact that we both like Indian food, we decided to try A Passage to India. We went in the evening . It wasn't very busy when we first went in so we were able to talk to the waiter about the various dishes, which was very helpful. When choosing one of the breads, I asked the waiter if they had Puri. It's a bread which is deep fried and really, really good. Although it wasn't on the menu they did have it. Well worth throwing the diet to the wind for one evening. It did fill up and by the time we left it was pretty full. We can understand why. The food was excellent and the service was the best. We now have a definite place to eat next time we visit Fargo.
