Nice dinner near Norfolk airport! Stuck out by the airport and not wanting fast food and chain food? India Palace has delicious Indian food and good service with a pleasant ambiance.
I was first introduced to this restaurant by our neighbors who are from India. They normally do not eat out, but when they do, they like to go to India Palace. The food is always hot, fresh, and full of flavor. I in-turn introduced this restaurant to my husband, who is a plain eater, a meat and potato kind-of guy. He found a few seafood and lamb dishes weren't too "weird" for him to eat and he thoroughly enjoyed them all. They have a good selection of vegetarian, seafood, and meat dishes on the menu and on the lunch buffet (which I love because it allows me to sample a lot of different foods). I brought other friends to the restaurant who also fell in love with the food; one couple never knew India Palace was there (it's hidden in an office plaza). In my many visits, my friends and I have tried many different dishes on the menu and I can honestly say we have always been happy and satisfied with our meals. Oh, and the wait staff are wonderful! The young man we had the other night was funny, friendly, and very competent. We love this place!
Weekend lunch buffet a great value. Best of the best was the masala dosa hand delivered to the table, as good as any I've had, even in Kerala, India. It is not often that one finds masala dosa as the majority of the places focus on north Indian cuisine. The buffet choices are plentiful and for the most part, mildly spiced. The vegetable table is separate from the meat selections. My husband especially enjoyed the goat curry while I tried several different chicken preparations. The décor is neat but sparsely decorated. The focus is on the food as it should be. Recommend highly. Price more than reasonable.
The food is FANTASTIC! We had a party of 8, which comprised Indian people, people who had never eaten Indian food, and everything in between. Everyone ordered something different and we shared family style. The portion sizes are very generous, and we all enjoyed everything immensely. The service was great! They were very willing to customize dishes for us. When we went, the place was practically empty, and I have no idea why. This food was delicious! Definitely better than the more "highly rated" Indian restaurants in Virginia Beach. I absolutely recommend!!!
I am a huge fan of India Palace and have been about 6-7 times. They have the best deal for the lunch buffet (7 days a week!), which includes some vegetarian specials. They will bring you fresh naan and dosa to your table. They have the best gulab jamun (dessert) I have ever had (bigger and better than Nawab or Saffron). The service and food is excellent. Not as fancy as some other restaurants, but it is a neighborhood fave of my family. Thank you India Palace!
- The host and waiter were very professional and polite.
-Took a reasonable amount of time to get the food.
- The food was fantastic.
-Atmosphere in the resturant is not a setting for special occasions. Very clean and neat though.
- Booth we sat in was comfortable with plenty of room on the table for our meals.
-I would definately recommend them for great indian food, But not for your anniversary dinner.
