“Our Favorite Indian Restaurant in Seattle”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

This is the place to go (either the Ravenna or Ballard location) for great Indian food in Seattle. Our favorite dishes: Malai Kofta and Fish Goa Curry. The Nan and the Kingfisher on tap is great too.

“Great buffet even on the weekends”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Really delicious and affordable lunch buffet! We went on Sunday around 1 and the place was about half full. There was a nice selection of dishes including Saag Paneer, my favorite, and the service was very friendly. It would be nice to see just one or two more vegetarian dishes, but if you don't mind chicken there are plenty of options! We will definitely be back, as it's a great deal and the best Indian food either of us has had for a while.

“Very Good Indian Food”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We went to India Bistro on a Thursday night. It was early, but I was surprised at how few patrons were there. We almost had the place to ourselves. The pakoras and spinach naan were very good. I had Murgh Jalfraizies (chicken marinated with vegetables and spices), and my wife had the Chicken Korma. The Korma was better. It's not the best Indian food I've ever had, but it was certainly very good, and I would go back again. It may be different on the weekend, but during the week, it's a place to eat away from the hustle and bustle!

“great for lunch”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Great lunch buffet for a great price. My wife loves Indian food....I'm OK with it. We had a great lunch, as good as anything you'll get in India. If you want great Indian food....you'll get it here. Service is good and atmosphere is fine.
