Diner Reviews
  • "I had the sirloin kebob and it was tender, moist and flavorful. Service was attentive and prompt."

  • "The food was great, but the service was lackluster. Maybe its because I went there mid day and not during a night rush? Idk... our waiter was kind of a space cadet."

  • "My husband & I decided to look for a new Indian restaurant. We had heard about India, but had never tried it. Our experience was fabulous. The flavors were excellent, selections abundant. Our server was very good; he remembered our orders without writing them down...he was very attentive....our drinks came within 5 minutes of ordering and our appetizer arrived within 10 minutes in spite of the restaurant being busy. We arrived at 5 pm for dinner. By the time we left at 6 pm, many of the tables were already filled. We'll be back."

  • "My husband and I absolutely LOVE the staff! They are always happy, have a great sense of humor and aim to please their guests! Plus, the wait staff have been there for a long time. You always see a friendly face and they remember you too. :) The menu offers a wide variety of food to please anyone's palate. It's not all spicey and hot. I love the Byriani with chicken! The food is superior! The cocktails are so good too! We enjoy bringing friends and family to this restaurant. The ambiance is excellent no matter where you sit. Inside or out you will love being here. The belly dancer is awesome and getting henna tattoos is really fun!"

  • "India Restaurant is among several ethnic restaurants in Providence that are true gems. Lovely ambiance, good food, wine and service at reasonable prices. I had not been in years and cannot yet comment on lunches, wine list, etc. I am pleased to have returned. It is great to have many vegan/vegetarian options. As their notable phrase indicates, India Restaurant will "spice up your life!""

  • "We have been to India Restaurant often. It is relatively small, but wonderful, quiet ambiance. It is kid sound turned off. There was a beautiful Indian movie the night we were there and we chose to pay attention. Otherwise it is not noticeable. Children are welcome and I have never experienced restless or impolite children. I am not sure of they have a "kid's menu". Now the important part......the food is awesome. The chef/s is very willing to adapt any dish to accommodate special dietary needs as possible. I have had multiple dishes and have enjoyed them all. My husband is a lamb saag person! India Restaurant is definitely worth a try."

  • "We found this restaurant while looking for a last minute News Years Eve option - and could not be happier! We arrived at 7pm, which was just before things got really busy. The menu was delightfully different, with Indian standards and unique items. Started with the Indian Nachos which were really tasty. Husband had the Lobster and Shrimp in Coconut Curry and I had the Duck in Tamarind Curry. Both were wonderful. Duck was perfectly cooked . Curry has beautiful heat. And I cannot say enough about the kale salad. Nirvana cocktail was addicting. Belly dancer was charming. It did get very busy, so out of respect for the other diners we did not linger. However, we will be back!"

  • "India is a wonderful restaurant. The Peppered Duck in Tamarind Curry has become my all time's favorite. My husband loves their lentil soup and garlic naan. We tried the Swordfish Kabob for the first time recently, and it was absolutely delicious! Our favorite spot in the restaurant is by the fireplace next to the French doors, but in the summer, the outdoor seats are converted to swings! How fun! This is a must go restaurant, highly recommended!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "Lovely ambiance, great food and friendly staff! The naan was solo good and the duck and lamb dishes were unique and tasty!"

  • "It seemed my girlfriend and I ran out of ideas, so we decided on India. She'd been a few years back and I'm glad she came up with this idea. Our 8:00 reservation had us seated by 8:15; the waiter was very knowledgeable; (thankfully - I've NEVER had Indian food) and the food came out quick, hot and delicious. The belly dancer was an added feature that we both found entertaining. I'm looking forward to going back."

  • "I always have a excellent experience when I visit India restaurant on Hope Street in Providence. The staff is very friendly and remember you! The food is delicious! Henna is the best and the entertainment is great!"

  • "Get the seafood offerings as they are really special but what suffers here is the classical India cuisine as its just not up to par when it comes to seasonings. For example, India serves the worst and chewiest naan bread I ever had which is completely inedible when it gets cold. Conversely, the ambience is better than most Indian restaurants as it leans to the upscale."

  • "Relaxed atmosphere, thedecoration takes an award as well as lighting, Denisse the host makes you feel at home. From the moment you walk in you get transported to the cultural riches of east, from delightful music to delicious dishes, knowledgeable staff that knows the food's in and outs and what to suggest based on the client's preference. The menu is magnificient with many delicious choices, from grilled meats to curries (spiced stews but they can make it less spicy or more spicy if you'd like) The duck in tamarind curry is a home run, and so is the kale/cucumber salad. I was treated like the most important person in the planet, I was fed like a king in a beautiful environment while listening to great middle eastern and indian music."

  • "It was great food, but our waiter needed to learn how to use deodorant.... The cocktails were weak, so i wouldn't recommend them! But the food is well priced as well as very tasty."

  • "This is a beautiful restaurant--great decor and laid out in a way that almost every table feels private. I had a truly wonderful dish for dinner--duck with tamarind, hazelnuts, and figs--SO good!!! And they serve slice and roasted sweet potatoes as a lower-carb alternative to rice--so good for carb-counters. (You can get rice if you wish.) A kale and cucumber salad that comes with the dinner is excellent--and I rarely like kale."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed another delicious dinner at the India in Providence. The mussels are the best I've ever had. The service is exceptional!"
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "I've never had a bad meal at India and the service is always excellent. My favorite dish is the lamb biryani, but I also enjoy the many curries. And naan bread! The margaritas are tasty and very large! The waitstaff is very attentive and friendly. We were running a little late, but they held our reservation for a much desired table by the fireplace! Another great dining experience."

  • "Ambience was great, service was great. the food wasn't. good in some parts, but they need to add some authenticity to call it "Indian" food and not modify it to other taste. my pet peeve is indian food is not just about the food being spicy or hot. Its about flavor. most "indian" restaurants in countries outside india "dumb it down" and this, in my view kills the flavor and not the spiciness and most of the stuff has a sweet twang to it, while it shouldn't."

  • "I love India, but I admit I haven't sampled their menu widely, as I discovered their lamb kebobs, and now that is my favorite thing to order. I like to eat a lot of veggies, and theirs are terrific: kale-cucumber salad, grilled broccoli and veggie curries are all good."
