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.

If we are home, we eat at Passage to India's buffet almost every weekend. We are vegetarians and there are always at least four options and they change the selections regularly, The staff is excellent and we have never been disappointed by the food.

“So Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

excellent food, the lunch buffet is awesome, reasonably priced, During our stay at Fargo we went there for lunch buffet which was simply awesome! with of many variety of food and they were all simply delicious!. Another time we went there for dinner very late around 9.15 (the restaurant closes at 9.30) and we ordered fish curry, chicken manchurian and mutton pepper fry which were all served to us without too much of wait and the food was freshly made! and tasted so awesome!

“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!
