Solid Indian favorites but just a bit different. Saag paneer, for example, was very smooth and a vibrant green, but tasty. Portions are what you'd expect. Service was attentive. The atmosphere was closer to an American diner than most Indian restaurants, with flat screen TVs visible from all directions.

The food at Coriander is pretty pedestrian, but I honestly haven't yet found a good Indian restaurant in Pittsburgh. The location is good, the price was good, and the belly dancing was fun. The belly dancer even embarrassed my dad, and I don't think I've ever seen him blush! That was worth the trip.

This place always has excellent Indian food! The best is the buffet, which used to be open a lot more often than it is now, but it's definitely worth the trip! The service is spectacular!

We ordered the lamb vindaloo, the chicken vindaloo and the shrimp kadai. Ordering three dishes between the two of us turned out to be justified when we saw how small the portions were. The vindaloos were way too vinegary and tomatoey and lacked the subtle blends of spices one expects in supposedly authentic Indian food. Adding insult to injury, the lamb dish was mostly big chunks of potato with very little lamb. The kadai was simply bland. I usually mop up every drop of sauce with naan bread, but in this case we half of everything. The only positive was the pickle tray and popadoms.

Given there are several quality Indian restaurants in the region, there's no good reason to visit this place.

Coriander has an awesome selection of Indian cuisine. The wait staff was friendly and always kept the drinks full. Check out the buffet on Sunday evening for an wide selection of entrees for $8.95 a person! Great value! Their typical dinner entrees range from approximately $10-15 the rest of the time.
