    A decent example of Indian food with an American fusion twist. Best dish by far was the bacon wrapped prawns. Also recommended (if you like spicy) is the ceviche.

    Not entirely sure if my experience would have been different if I hadn't visited this place for Restaurant Week... Made reservations and when I got there, the place was pretty empty. Cool. I really liked the ambiance. A BIG plus for the two signs outside the door prohibiting cell phone use and loud children. I really wanted to like this place... But the service was really slow. There were multiple times the host/waiter had forgotten about us. Maybe they were short staffed that night but it shouldn't take us two full hours to enjoy dinner anywhere unless they had to wait for some chickens to hatch eggs.

  • No Welcome, Slow Service, Mild Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    No host to welcome us. 10 minute wait, then I wandered into the kitchen to find someone. Missed the reservation note so no acknowledgement of our special occasion. Service was painfully slow, server's check-ins oddly timed, he apologized throughout the night for all the delays and reminded us several times he was new. My VERY SPICY dish showing up completely mild. Server apologized (again) and brought some "salsa" for it. Also not spicy, so I asked him to take it back. He left to talk to the chef and came back with some sliced Serrano peppers for me. That's their answer to providing a spicy Indian dish! Finally, check came, they applied 20% auto-grat POST-TAX! So a $45 tip on terrible service experience. Delightful.

    Have been to related restaurant, kebab n Kurry many times and love it. Decided to take wife and another couple for birthday celebration. Food, service, ambiance, everything was just great. Although there are some similar menu items, most are uniquely different. All are very good. If you love kebab n Kurry but looking for better atmosphere, this is the place.

    My wife and I love Indian food and hadn't found anything in Dallas worth raving about. An Indian friend recommended Indian West and we were really very impressed with the high quality of the food. Everything tasted authentic. Our wait person Sarah was charming and we enjoyed talking with her and AJ. A great Saturday night experience that we will repeat soon.

    India West is among my favorite restaurants. The service is always solicitous. The menu is diverse and interesting. They offer a very good selection wines, even by the glass. The meal is served at a leisurely pace - never hurried. And the sorbet after dinner is a very nice touch.

    Food was pricey, a few communication errors, most of the food was good, the rest was great(LAMB!) One thing that was different is that India West does not allow cell phone usage. Food and drinks took forever. Probably will not go there again, but will recommended to our richer friends... haha do not have any. YET.

    The food at India West wasn't too bad - fair. Having more wait staff would have cut down on the lengthy time it took to served. When you are forced to pay a 20% gratuity and the service isn't impeccable,you feel like you are being ripped off.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner (he loves Indian food, I do not) and immediately was impressed. The restaurant is nice, clean, and smells fabulous. The menu looked delicious and, with some help from our server, we both ended up with absolutely incredible dinners. I got the mahi mahi kurry and my boyfriend got the lamb vindaloo. They were really helpful to prepare the dishes to our liking (in regards to heat especially) and it was an absolutely wonderful evening. I don't like Indian food (usually) but India West was an exception. We WILL be back. The service, the food, and the ambience were all outstanding. Thanks for making our celebration special!

    We brought two friends who are Indian food fanatics to India West just after New Year. The meals we ordered were wonderful. We pronounced the Chicken Tikka Masalas and both Korma's as the best Indian food we had collectively ever eaten. The cocktails were prepared with equal skill, and were delicious. Service and attention the manager personally gave made us feel welcome and valued as customers. Very highly recommended for any occasion, special or just want some great Indian.

    We had a fabulous dining experience at India West. The menu had something for every taste, including those unfamiliar with Indian cuisine. India West pays attention to every detail. Excellent wine choices...even by the glass. Appetizers ranging from Caesar salad to Indian street food (yummy!). Entrees prepared with delicate sauces. A hand towel following diner and a delightful lemon sorbet. We can't wait to go back!!!

    India West is a higher-end experience combining great food with solid service and a nice environment. You get the feeling that the staff, top to bottom, genuinely cares. The restaurant is everything their website promises and it's easy to see why they win so many awards. The rack of lamb is awesome,

    More interesting menu items than any Dallas Indian restaurant. India Palace is the only competition but this place is more elegant. Will be back for sure. Sad to say that there were not many people there on a Saturday night. Hope this place can stay in business. Everything we ordered was great .Great service as well. Little touches befitting a top class restaurant were appreciated. I'd eat here every week but my wife doesn't like spicy food as much as I do!

    Ambiance is great as is service. Our server was prompt and attentive to our needs. The manager/owner made sure to introduce himself and check on us for each course. I arrived with 2 friends for Restaurant Week. We started off by ordering a cocktails, which was excellent in taste. In general the food itself was okay, kind of disappointing for the price. The appetizers and dessert were good, but the main dish left much to be desired. My eggplant was all gravy with 2 tiny pieces of eggplant. It was advertised to be stuffed with cream cheese and paneer; however the eggplant wasn't even thoroughly cooked or seasoned and only 1 piece had a small drop of cheese inside. If I'm not that hungry, I may give this place another try.

    Our first visit made a lasting impression, thanks to personal attention from Kebab N Kurry pioneer Chef A.J. Duggal in the front of the house. He was a warm, informative guide through delectable courses prepared by Chef Owner - & son - Ross Duggal. We had an enlightening discourse on Indian cuisine & how their SO-fresh ingredients are sourced and prepared. Chef shared how spices vary based on where they're sourced & ordered samples brought to our table so we could experience the differences. The lamb (New Zealand) was tender in our mouths, the prawns and ceviche delicious, and the Chicken Tikka Masala most tasty (which inspired me to up the spice level next time!) End with Kheer Badami and Kashmiri tea... you won't want to leave!

    This was Father's Day so it was all about me. There were three in our group of five that didn't really care for spicy (hot) foods. I knew there would be plenty of other things available that wouldn't be too hot. One advertised item was kabob skewers. Never saw them on the buffet. I consider the spinach paneer dish to be a staple at nearly all Indian meals and it was missing from this buffet. I just would have liked to have had that. They were about 15 minutes late being able to serve. We arrived at exactly 11:30 which was when it was to have begun. There were complimentary mango margaritas that were ok. The tequila in them didn't taste like a high quality tequila. All in all it was pretty good and a good bargain at $18/person.

    We went as a group to India West, found it good but pretty costly. We were 4 adults and 3 kids with us and they charged me 20% service charge which was pretty high and I didn't like it. Good part is food was good , for which we went there. overall we enjoyed there, my kids liked the food . Simple sanitary things were missing like a wet hand towel before start of food. there was only one attender for 4-5 tables so service was very slow.
