The wonderful aroma of this restaurant could be detected almost a half a block away and I immediately started drooling. Indian is one of my favorite cuisines and this place was exceptional. Staff was friendly and courteous and food was served up with minimal delay. Large portion. I was stuffed and still had plenty for the next day. I was... More

This restaurant is in an underwhelming neighborhood, but if you happen to be near, this is a great place for a meal. The food was very good, better than I have had at more expensive Indian restaurants, with generous portions. The service was excellent.

We are life time Indian food fans, having lived several years in India. The cuisine at People's is very authentic and well seasoned. Service was polite and efficient. You have to bring your own alcohol. They can improve their breads. They were a bit soft for tandoori nann.

Just moved to Bloomfield 2 weeks ago and have been here three times for the lunch buffet. 8 bucks and some change. All you can eat. The curry chicken is great. Love the naan. Everything is fresh. Love the masala chai too.

People's is delicious! It is a small hidden gem on Penn Ave and I recommend checking it out. The food and service are consistently good (although, make sure to eat majority of your entree or they'll become overly concerned you didn't like it). The atmosphere is nothing special but the food is good enough they don't need a good atmosphere.... More

We just had the buffet. The choices were limited and the spicing unremarkable. The only meat dishes were all chicken. Even the gulab jamon was boring.

Buffet at lunch and brunch. Quiet dinner experience. Fresh, tasty food. Personable servers. Late night discount. In the heart of the Penn Avenue Arts District. Checkout First Fridays - Unblurred, including the Night Market. Then enjoy dinner at People's.

One should always try their Thali it has so... More

4 of us went and could hardly finish our dinners for $10 a head. If you find yourself here on a weekday after 9 you can get a second entree half off. They did rush us out before closing and the Nan was on the crispy side. I ordered Lamb Rogan Josh, delightful. No charge for BYOB.

Since my first review, I have been a regular to this place (1-2 times a week). I can say that food is consistently good. Never had a bad experience with food or service. Came back to give it an excellent rating!
