The Indian food at India Palace was very tasty and the Naan bread was the best in town. The lunch buffet was all you can eat and for under $10, but unfortunately the restaurant has closed since my last visit. They will be building new...More

We have been here a year ago and was disappointed. We thought of giving it another try and visited again and tried the lunch buffet. The limited choice of items were prepared in most amateurish manner. One can buy frozen Indian dinners at grocery stores...More

Samosas were greasy. Korma was watery and had almost no lamb. Service was very good. Rice had no spice to it at all (usually I expect a little mustard seed or cumin seed).

We went out of our way to go to this restaurant seeking vegetarian food and were not disappointed. The owner and staff were very accommodating and all food was made to order for dinner. The price was good and the quality was also perfect.

I usually despise buffet because of the cold and ordinary food. India Palace has an exceptionally good lunch buffet for $8 per adults (kids half price). The food is always piping hot and fresh, especially of you're here shortly after 11:30 am. The variety changes...More

Maybe this is under new ownership. When we went we had the worst Indian food we have ever had. The buffet items had films of grease on all of the foods offered. Husband and I took one look and just got some of the tandoori...More
