The flavor of the food is intricate, but it still has many of the emotional ties to comfort food. The architecture of the building takes you away from the hustle of the main road. It was a great location for a secluded date, especially after...More

We ate at this restaurant once in August 2016 and the food was alright, but more recently the food has been bad. On our last visit the sauce on both of our dishes tasted like pre-made bottled sauce. The chicken in my Chicken Tikka Masala...More

I first tried Reema's when it was the "Jewel of India" restaurant. Similar to my visit today, it offered a great lunch buffet in 2011. In the early days to the present, I've been a frequent diner here. It's been a great spot for outings...More

Staff very prompt and attentive. Took great care to ensure food was at my desired spice level. Owners are from India and the food is prepared using traditional family recipes. I will be back!

A great stop for Indian food if you're in Carbondale! Our favorites are the Chicken and Lamb Korma and the garlic naan. They also have a buffet on certain days of the week and a pick up window for to-go orders, which is very convenient.

I did enjoy eating here. However, apparently, they're only open when it's convenient. We went for lunch on a Saturday at noon on a few occasions, and they were closed. Yet, they're open on other Saturdays. Also, whether there will be a lunch buffet is...More

I walked in and took a seat and they asked me one question - vegetarian or chicken. I chose veg and they brought me out a big plate of food featuring a variety of tastes, colors, and textures that was excellent. I found the experience...More

I would say this place is more American Indian style, since they target American and students. They have buffet for lunch, which you can eat various Indian food, at night time you have to order the dishes, it's more expensive at night and a little...More
