“Fairly Middling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

I am not an avid Indian food connoisseur, but I have eaten at probably 6 or 8 different Indian restaurants, and found India Garden to be rather mediocre. The curry chicken and tikka chicken were somewhat watery as was the Raita sauce. The bigger problem, I thought, was the delay in their keeping the buffet stocked. At one point, people were just sort of loitering around the buffet waiting for Naan bread and the chicken to be replenished. I felt like, after leaving a tip, an $11 bill for the meal was a tad high for what I actually got, BUT, it's kind of the only game in town for Indian food and I was in the mood.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

I go to India Garden quite a bit for lunch and dinner. They have a lunch buffet that is very good and well priced. Dinner prices are a little high, but the food and service is excellent. Big portions too.

“Enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This was my first visit to the lunch buffet.It was a late lunch so the food was not at it's peak, but was still plentiful and I was pleased with the variety and flavors. The service was not particularly welcoming or friendly but my water was refilled promptly. The dining room is nicely furnished and I would definitely return.

“This is for the takeout”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

This review is based solely on the food. I ordered takeout for Chicken Tikka Masala and it was ready 20 min later when I went to pick it up (in a very, very empty restaurant). The chicken was bland, the sauce was watery, and it was nowhere near the medium level of spiciness I've come to associate with Indian restaurants. Also, very expensive! $16 for tasteless chicken? They get two stars because the rice was good.
