    The portion size was considerably small compared to the price for one. The food really wasn't all that tasty. Honestly tasted like the Samosas were frozen and fried as ordered. The meals we had wasn't to our expectations.

    Hummus plate was very good. Garlic naan bread with dinner was very good. Butter chicken was not flavored as I thought it would be as it was a little sweet to me and my wife. Our friend ordered okra/tomatoes and had lamb added which was fantastic and spicy.

    We had reservations but when we arrived they informed us they were at capacity due to a couple of large celebratory groups so we'd be aware there might be a longer than usual time to get our food. The environment was welcoming, the food and service were good. Our appetizers and mains came out together , the manager apologized and paid for a roun of drinks. We will definitely be back.

    This place ruined date night. We waited 10 minutes before someone even came to greet us! I ordered chicken fried chicken with Brussel sprouts. The Brussel sprouts were overcooked and tasted like baby food. The chicken wasn’t even dressed right. No gravy no nothing. As we were paying, the server brought it to my attention that it wasn’t made right. My partners food was also nasty. She ordered the masala and it tasted like tomato soup, no Indian spices or anything. I’m so unhappy with this place. Never again.

    The food is great and varied. Atmosphere is quite and friendly. They did a fantastic job with accomodating our 3 grand-children for a birthday get-together. The only negative things is parking and construction in the area.

    Terrific menu. Excellent prices. Wait staff last night was even better than usual, which is normally very good. We still applaud the sense of humor that led to Cowboys & Indians as a name and theme. If I tell you that one of my favorite dishes is Chicken Tikka Masala, that should tell you why we think the name is so fun.

    We love these guys! The mixed menu provides a wonderful choice and my personal favorite from the Cowboys side is the chicken fried steak with just that hint of spice that makes it uniquely Cowboys & Indians. Many items from all over the menu are excellent. The new location (now on Shepherd) is a lovely and inviting place to walk into and spend time over a meal with friends. Prices seem extremely reasonable.

    I was there with 2 friends. We didn’t realize they only served brunch on Saturday afternoon. No worries we all enjoyed our food. Our waiter wasn’t very attentive but all in all it was still an enjoyable meal. I will return one evening to try their dinner items.

    Only complaint was the noise, but we were able to sit on the patio which alleviated the problem. Waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. A chef came to our table with an extra piece of grilled chicken because she felt the original serving had been a little skimpy,

    Very disappointing for a Friday night with friends. Made reservations at 6:30 pm for 6 people. Restaurant was not busy. Service was super slow. Drinks were all terrible. Most of the wines and beers we requested were not available. The red wine they substituted had slightly turned. The food was just okay. Definitely not the best Indian food. The kids sliders and fries were great. Food came out slowly and asking for a 2nd drink seemed like a chore for the staff. We were so looking for to this place. Sad to say we will not be back.

    We had a team lunch of about 25 people. They set us up with most of the back area - no problems fitting us in with a reservation. The GM Ashley was super nice in greeting us and checked on us several times to make sure we were having a good time. All the staff were also friendly and attentive. I'll be going back for regular lunches especially to check out the fusion options.

    Friends and I had another wonderful meal at Cowboys and Indians last night. We started with their delicious wings and their new naan-chos with twenty hour brisket. Their uniquely innovative menu never disappoints. The lamb saag, chicken tikka, and chana masala were all delicious. Everyone at our table left full and very happy - looking forward to dining at Cowboys & Indians again soon!

    The food was spectacular! Ashley was a boss and made sure everything was running smoothly. The chicken friend chicken was probably the best chicken I’ve ever had. The appetizers were delicious. We also had the extra spicy lamb vindaloo and it was delicious. The cocktails were okay. Overall, a great experience. They were really busy at the time.

    They’ve had this location open for about 8 months. Service is so bad. No clue what they are doing. Bars TVs didn’t work…” they are still trying to get TV service.” I had to log on to my account for them to turn on the college World Series. Bartender had no clue. Food was sub par at best. This was a Friday night and it was dead. No I know why. This restaurant will not make it.

    This is by far the worst restaurant claiming to make Indian. It's a total rip off, food is substandard. We were a party of 6 and ordered quite a few things but all dishes were made of chickpeas, Naan or potatoes. The prices were phenomenally high for the absolute rubbish that was served. Save your money ! Run far away from here.
