We will be back! Great little gem! Very small simple decor. A little bit worn. But so very relaxing and the food as great as you can find anywhere! They seem to have a good carry out business going as well.

The Malai Kofta is the best I've tasted in the midwest. Totally Delicious ! They have it on the buffet on Fridays and I think Wednesdays also.

Went there and wanted the buffet - but it was almost empty even though there were a lot of people "waiting" for more food to be put out - not a lot of selection - wasn't worth what we paid for - staff wasn't too friendly. We really enjoy Indian food and we were very disappointed.

Had a great meal tonight from Exotic India. Veg Biryani and Chicken Karahi was fantastic. Was also great portion and will serve me a couple lunches this week.

Pulling into a parking lot shared with other restaurants, wasn't sure what to expect. It didn't look like much. However, food was great.

Service was great. Friendly staff. Seems very authentic. Naan was excellent. Had the Tofu Exotic Curry. Was very good. The facade and location shall not fool you of the authentic taste. The restroom needs help so be prepared.

It doesn't look like much, and in all honesty I prefer to take out... but the fact that it's people from Indian origins are eating there at all times kind of tells you that this is good Indian food! And it is delicious! At lunch you'll find a nice buffer in order to try a lot of variety. In the... More

We love to eat lunch here for the buffet. All of the food is authentic and delicious. The service is always friendly and we never leave here hungry. We especially love the punjab and the samosas. The buffet is not real big but all of the food on it is delicious. The restaurant itself is small but clean.

Restaurant recommended by hotel but, while food was okay, the service was poor. Vegetable pakora was hot but not really tasty. Rogan josh meat was good and tender, spicy-ness was indeed hot, and rice plentiful, so overall good. Naan was good. Two servers but had hard time completing a request, even bringing the check.

Thank Tom C
