This is one of the best Indian food restaurants in MKE. Took my wife there for Valentine’s Day and the food and service was excellent. They did a very nice job decorating the place for the day. Roses, heart balloons and decorating everywhere you could see.

Love having a great Indian restaurant so close to both Brookfield and Tosa. Good food at fair prices, yum!

Everything was great! Our request for a booth was accommodated, and our server, Francis, was terrific. He made some wonderful suggestions food-wise and has a great sense of humor! It all made for a really, really good evening!

We enjoyed the food and service at India Garden. It was too bad that a customer next to us spoke in volume to the whole restaurant!!! It was hard to hear conversation at our table. It was in no way the restaurant's fault.

We went for a lunch Buffet and it was very good. The service was amazing. Sometimes at a Buffet the waitstaff ignores you, this was not the case at India Garden. They kept our Ice Tea glasses full without being asked. The restaurant is very nice and comfortable. I liked being able to try a lot of different dishes and everything I tried was good. It takes a bit to find the place but well worth it.

The food was absolutely amazing, and it wasn't too loud for us to be able to hear each other and enjoy each other's company. This was my husband's very 1st time tasting authentic Indian food and he loved it so much that he said he wants to keep going back and eventually eat everything on the amazing and extensive menu.

I love India Garden. The buffet is wonderful, but tonight, it's so nice to just order what you love to eat. The food is excellent. The flavors are very much according to how much heat you like. The waiting staff is there when you need them. It's my favorite place. Oh, and the noise level is very nice. I'm a little hard of hearing and have a nice mini-mic if I need one (for my hearing aids) but I don't need it hear.

This is one of my kids' favorite places to eat (ages 14 and 16 years). The serving sizes are generous and the people there are friendly and very kind. They have many gluten free options (easily highlighted on the regular menu) for those who need it and I have had no adverse symptoms any of the times I have eaten here. The mild versions are mild and the hot is adequately hot (haven't tried the very hot versions). The mango juice is awesome as well!

Our waiter was not careful about our gluten allergies. We ordered gluten-free bread and regular bread. Two of us ate the regular bread and got very sick with intense bloating and constipation. The waiter set the regular bread in front of the wrong people. This could have hospitalized one of us who suffers from celiac disease. On a bright note, the manager Ram diffused the situation in a very caring, professional manner.

I come here often, at least once a quarter. I'm never disappointed. Great staff, always willing to explain the cuisine to you. And they're so funny. It's always so enjoyable.

Of note, have the Panni Puri. Gotta be the funnest street food ever.
And the Palak Paneer is so incredibly tasty.

Very nice restaurant, upscale but comfortable, excellent service, excellent food, nothing but good things to say. This establishment has a restaurant feel rather than the diner feel like many other Indian restaurants in the area, which was a major plus for me. Will absolutely return, no question!

By far one of the best Indian restaurants in the Milwaukee area. Sauces are all distinct -- no curry mishmash here. Service is genuinely friendly and competent. Not the cheapest but fortunately here you get what you pay for, and that means great food.

Best Indian food in Tosa. Waiter helped negotiate us thru the menu. We shared so could experience different flavors. Greatly enjoyed and great service. Will be back and will do carry out, too.

We’ve never been to an India restaurant before. So for my first time ever we felt it was outstanding. Our waiter couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to eat. He was not pushy in any which way. All of his suggestions from appetizers to the bread and our main entrées were right on the spot and matched our taste buds. It was refreshing to have a waiter that knew the menu like he did.

One of the best Indian restaurants in town. Food is always delicious, hot and has wonderful flavors. They've done a nice job renovating what was once an iconic restaurant and keeping the fireplace is super enticing, especially in colder weather. Service is attentive and love the hot towels at close of the dining experience.

The Indian food here is some of the best I've had since traveling to India. The wait staff is knowledgeable & very kind. If you like Indian food or want to try it this is the place to go. The wait staff can help you order if you are unsure what to try!

We went to India Garden to celebrate a birthday. One of people in our party of four was nervous about spicy Indian food. Ramesh, our waiter, suggested some options. She chose Lobster Masala and loved it. I had the Tandoori Mixed Grill. It was fabulous. All four of us will return.

The best Indian restaurant in the Milwaukee area. Any out-of town guests who like Indian food also give raves. I (we) like that they vary dishes at the buffet, and they offer a variety of excellent vegetarian dishes in addition to chicken, fish, goat and (mostly at night) lamb.

Food was ok - not memorable. I was disappointed they could not accommodate my request for no ginger - which significantly limited my dinner selection. I would not return because if this.
