Diner Reviews
  • "We've dined here before--but took my parents for the first time on Saturday night. It was their first experience eating Indian food--and even my dad who is notoriously unadventurous with food, completely enjoyed! My mom who is very carb conscious loved that she could replace the rice with the Kale and Cucumber salad with her curry. My dad and I enjoyed the Biranyani (and I'm pretty sure I just spelled that wrong), while my husband enjoyed the lamb kabobs--we even ordered off the Doggie menu for a little treat for our furry friend who was at home! I think he enjoyed his chicken and rice too! Really a treat for the entire family!"

  • "Although a little on the louder side, volume was very typical of an after work crowd in an upscale eatery. My waitress was superb, and I didn't notice anyone perturbed about bad service. I love Indian cuisine, and this place didn't disappoint with their curry dish. I would definitely recommend it, and will go back if I ever get back to Providence."

  • "Good food and if you can go on a weekend night you'll get to see the belly dancer. It was a good time had by all."

  • "We had a most wonderful dinner at your restaurant celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday with 2 of her girlfriends and their mothers...a "Girl's night out". The food was delicious and the server (a lovely woman with a ?Spanish accent) was exceptional! We were so full we did not order dessert but were served a complimentary mango banana split with candles.....and a Happy Birthday Chorus sang to the Birthday Girl! We did manage to polish off the dessert!! We took a peak out in the patio in back and we are sure to try that next time....it was so beautiful with swing seats and beautiful flowers everywhere. Thank you so much for a fun evening out!!!! We will surely be back.....with the boys the next time!!"

  • "Celebrated my birthday with my family. It was all around an amazing evening. We sat in the garden with half the table being a booth and the other having swings for seats. The food was spectacular, seasoned really well. We got Henna tattoos from a lovely young lady, we missed the belly dancer but will be back to catch the show (only during weekend for both) Dessert was scrumptious, definitely coming back. Thanks for the amazing attentive service and for being so warm and welcoming."

  • "The food here is consistently tasty and interesting. Unfortunately, the service is hit or miss. During the last visit, it took five or more minutes before wait staff even greeted us, let alone bring water or other drinks. Best to go for the buffet, where one is not so dependent on prompt service."

  • "I booked for the place with my fiancé, we arrived early and ended up needing the reservation which was nice. The manager or owner urged us to sit outside in their courtyard -- it was beautiful! You are seated either in a regular chair or a swing chair, there are many beautiful flowers around and a relaxing fountain, I would recommend sitting there on a beautiful afternoon/evening. We left earlier than we wanted only due to impending rain, but just as we left the belly dancer was coming to perform! There is also free henna painting inside. We did not order any drinks, but they seemed to have a good selection. The food came in very large portions, but for me the atmosphere stole the show."

  • "We've been dining at India for a number of years now and never are disappointed. This latest time was superb, as always. The staff were attentive and efficient, the food marvelous, and the pricing extremely fair. We recommend India highly to all of our friends and acquaintances. A special surprise this time was a discount applied to all entrees on Tuesday through Thursday nights!"

  • "This was our first time dining at India. I had very little experience with Indian food. The ambience was great with beautiful outdoor seating. The waitress couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. She helped us with our order and her recommendations were perfect! I started with a Pear martini that was very good. appetizers were samosas and a basket of naan breads( all varieties). My favorite were the ginger & honey and pesto. I chose the chicken masala entrée and my husband ordered the kebob platter. Everything was delicious and we will definitely be returning."

  • "Consider the restaurant a dining adventure, lived up to my expectations. Had never had Indian food so it was a very delightful experience. Make sure to request patio seating in the rear of the restaurant, a very beautiful location."

  • "We came for the soccer special. Our original waiter kept mumbling so much we had to have him keep repeting himself. He eventually just abandoned us and other waitstaff in the restaurant just helped our table when we needed something."

  • "My wife and I loved the outdoor patio garden area. Tables were under trellises, and the seats on one side of the tables were swings. The food was excellent! The jumbo margaritas (20 oz) were too big. Next time we'll order one and share it. We love Indian food, and have been to many Indian restaurants. This is the best ever!"

  • "We had a great meal on Mother's Day. My wife grew up in England and she loves Indian food. Over there you find Indian restaurants everywhere. she grew up in a small village in northern England and there's an Indian restaurant right in the village center right next to the pub. I wanted to do something special for her on Mother's Day and this fit the bill."

  • "Went in for a late-ish lunch on Mother's Day. Outside seating was very popular. We sat inside but right near the doors to the patio, which made for a pleasant atmosphere. The buffet food was excellent, as were the frozen drinks (I had the mudslide myself). Drink service was a little slow as they were busy, but overall the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was great. Definitely recommend."

  • "So delicious. The naan is perfect, the currie dishes are my favorite. Apps are good. But I may be frequenting this place over the summer just for The mango colada!"

  • "I have been to India several times for dinner and my favorite dishes are: The spicy Biryani, the Sirloin Kebob and the Lamb Chops. All of them are outstanding. The meats, I order medium rare and the juiciness and tenderness of the meat is just crazy good. The Kale salad that comes with the kebob entrees is fresh, light and delicious. The Basmati rice is a great side to the kebobs. The service is nice and polite. Attentive and non intrusive. The decor is very soft and cozy with some Bollywood movies in the main dining area. "

  • "Pleasant dining, comfortable seating. The service is attentive and friendly. The food is tasty but a couple items were overcooked when we went last time to the Sunday buffet. Time before they had a seafood special that was perfect. This is a tasty change of pace place for us we go to periodically. Try the alcoholic "Tea" , very good but practice restraint. They will sneak up on you. Wife likes the Mamosa's."

  • "Wife and I visited India on a Tuesday night. Service was a bit slow but waitress seemed to be waiting on many tables. Waitress was very friendly and overall atmosphere was very relaxing. Red Sangria was excellent as was Aloo Tikki and Lentil Spinach soup. Naan Pizza ad Aloo Gobhi were good but we'd probably try other dishes on the next visit."

  • "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."
