We went on a Saturday night at about 630pm and found the place empty.
Menu is typical to what we find around here for Indian food. Entrees we're a bit pricey.
Nicely decorated large dining room. Full bar. Service was good.
Food was excellent. Appetizer, bread and main dishes all cooked perfectly.
This place has been here quite a while and the own two others around town.

Thank Frankdip

STAY AWAY- Not because what you are going to read below which because of my personal experience but surely because of mandatory service charge (not the gratuity) of 15%..
Now speaking from my experience went to this restaurant on the way to Niagara Falls - at restaurant around 9 PM Friday night (usual timing were open till 10.00 PM) we saw chefs were leaving by 9.30 upon taking our order and there was just one person in restaurant who was serving. Anyways about food was not tasty at all - we ordered veg vindaloo which was more like a mix veg and was bland & tasteless. dal tadaka was without tadaka and watery. Naans were too big for the portions but not worth for the money. Interesting part is they charged for the pickle 2.98$ for small quantity- really on top of that they call it imported pickle? how they justify that small amount which they don't cook to sell at that price. Another interesting part is this restaurant will charge you for service charge ( no matter for what size of table / no of people you are on). We were 3 adults and two small kids and they charged us 15% (not the gratuity) but the service charge- and that really upset me. we paid almost $10 for service charge..for really no special service....we were kind of left alone in there for most part of the dining..

Rest - take risk if you want to try this place..Good Luck

Reasonably quick service, a rather robust menu, ample portions, goof prices and much better than average Indian food. The tandoori chicken might have been more flavorful, but overall fine. The Rogan Josh was very good.

I hadn't been to India House in a while, and it seemed like it was about time to introduce our boys to this place. The food and service were excellent! The boys have already asked to go back.

We were the second table to be seated at 5:30 pm. We placed our order of appertizers and main meal. We waited and waited and waited. Eventually my husbands salad came out , no sign of my appetiser, tried to ask but the waiter just walker way . After over an hour the main course came you could not tell the difference between the curry chicken that my husband ordered and the mango chicken . I believe they were the same dish. Again tried to ask re the apperizer , yet again walked away . The waiter was not engaging and was quite clear he did not want to be working. . When we paid the cashier stated they were busy with take outs what was even more frustrating a tan.e that cam in after us with 4 were served twice as fast .. Different waiter. Will we return no , recommend no
