The place is creepy dark and just looks filthy. The food was not at all what I think of when I go to an Indian restaurant. My son ordered a beef dish, and of course you think chuck roast or something, but they used corned beef! It was disgusting. They are out of about everything on the menu when you... More

Thought we were ordering Indian food but they brought out "fusion" Thai-Indian. It was edible but we really wanted Indian food. The owner was very nice.

Was hoping to like this place and we just couldn't. Didn't look very clean and the food was not impressive at all.

We had the lamb, falling off the bones. The Indian bread perfectly seasoned and toasted. The other two choices excellent as well. The owner was also the server. Very attentive. There were 4 of us. And about 3 choices sufficient for all of us. My kids thought it was one of the best Indian restaurant experience they had ever had.

We stopped by this restaurant on a whim in the hopes that they could accommodate a group of 7 (including 3 wheelchairs)... The owner of the store was FANTASTIC, set us up with a table, and created a special non-spicy curry for the kids to eat. Indian-Thai fusion is the specialty in this place, and everything was delicious! I would... More

Very glad I read the TripAdvisor reviews before choosing this restaurant for an early dinner Saturday. If I'd gone by reviews on another website, we would have missed out on this wonderful gem. Proprietor was most gracious, made sure we knew there was an up charge for the lamb when we ordered the saag. Upon service he even offered to... More

Eating solo at Emperor of India makes one feel no longer alone. The hospitality and food are great! I love the Chai and the fish curry with paneer and vegetables over rice. The sauce is excellent and I have plenty for lunch. Thanks again.

Meals was good, and ambiance was good too. The service was good and important is its not pure indian food, a creative food with a blend of Thai flare! something different to try even if you are pure indian food lover.
