This experience was absolutely amazing! The food was a 10/10! We started with the vegetable samosas and they were delicious. They were served with two different sauces one was sweet and one was like a parsley sauce. For our main course we ordered chicken tikka masala and a cheese dish wish a tomato cream sauce. Both were so amazing! The tomato cream one was very bright with earthy undertones and the tikka masala was very rich and earthy. To finish they brought us a complimentary rice pudding. It was so light and refreshing especially after the spice from dinner. Highly recommend this restaurant and the dining experience!

Trust me; if you dine here you will NOT be disappointed.

Although it was just my second time here, you can tell by the attention to detail the owner, Anil has a great concern over the food and the quality of service - all excellent.

Our wine for the even suggested to us by Anil was a perfect compliment to the evening.

I was so impressed with the food I asked to meet the Chef to thank him personally.... I did.

You will not be disappointed dining here. Attentive and excellent staff, delicious food and a owner and management that cares

I am never disappointed when I come to Indian Harbor. The food is always fresh, hot and most importantly DELISH! The flavors are authentic and I just cant go to any other Indian Restaurant, hands down Indian Harbor is the best! We are always treated with top notch service and the ambience at the new location is perfect. The owner made us 3 grills: Shrimp, Baby Lamb Chop and Chicken ...smokin' hot and just so good.

The ambience was really lovely. The service staff not so great. The owner comes around to every table. If you are a beer person not many selections but the do have a long wine list. I had the Tikka Masala and it was ok. However my husband had the lamb but did not enjoy his. Unfortunately we will not be returning but I'd say it's at least worth going once.

Tables are tiny and uncomfortable. The restaurant only had a Valentine’s meal course set up. Unable to order anything out of regular menu. Tables are too close to other tables. Menu only had name of the food provided with no description it was very hard to know what the dishes were had to google because it wasn’t on their regular menu.

The food was beyond amazing. The flavors and taste are incredible. The garlic naan melts in your mouth. The Indian beer was good too. The owner is extremely personable and offers his suggestions if you are unsure what to order or how spicy you want the food. Will definitely be going back.

We went to this restaurant for the first time for our wedding anniversary. It was not crowded so social distancing was not a problem. Everyone wore masks.
The food was excellent. We ordered Medium spice and it was perfect. We ordered Chicken Rogan Josh, Tandoori Pomfret (type of fish), garlic naan and lacchha paratha. Had wine. One drawback was that there was no wine/drinks menu. Apparently it was not ready yet.
The dessert we had was Rasmalai which was delicious. The owner gave us complimentary another dessert - pistachio kulfi which was ok.
The owner was very friendly and made sure everything was satisfactory.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Ate here twice on a recent stay in Fort Lauderdale, once for lunch and once for dinner. If only I lived here so I could be a regular patron! There were so many things I wanted to try but finally settled on the Rogan Josh for lunch which included rice, soup, salad and dessert. YUM! Two nights later we returned for dinner and I had the Tandoori Vegetables, also an excellent choice. My husband cannot have onions which usually means he has few choices but no problem here the chef said, “Leave it to me” and he was so happy to be accommodated. Outstanding food and service; we will be back!

The food and service is amazing. I really love the new location and ambiance. We had chicken samosas as an appetizer, the flavor was authentic and the chicken was tender. For dinner we had mixed tandoori chicken, lemon rice and garlic and cheese naan. Everything was hot, flavorful and delicious. This is my go to Indian restaurant!!!

Premier location for Indian cuisine in Fort Lauderdale. We’ve frequented Indian harbor many times at the previous location, before covid-19, and always loved it. Now, after being vaccinated, we felt safe enough to check out the new space, albeit requesting outdoor seating on our reservation. When we arrived, the host explained that there was a mistake and there was no outdoor seating available for us. However, there was plenty of open space inside, and because of the mixup, we were comped two bottles of wine, two orders of samosas, and two rice pudding desserts. In addition to going above and beyond to express their apologies, the restaurant did an amazing job with our main orders: lamb korma, vegetable biryani, chicken tikka, chicken tikka masala, chana masala, and an assortment of naan breads (the garlic naan was my favorite). Everything was perfectly executed. The chicken tikka was outstanding and seasoned exactly as it should be - next time I’ll try the chicken tandoori for the bone-in version of this delectable dish. We asked for the chana masala to be spicy, and it did not disappoint (don’t order hot if you can’t take the heat!). All in all, I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more. Between the outstanding customer service, unbeatable food, skip the lesser competitors in the area and go straight to Indian harbor for the best possible Indian food experience.

Indian Harbor is a very pretty restaurant, it was formerly located in the Harbor Shops off of 17th Street and they recently moved to a more visible location, right on 17th Street near Chipotle. I was very impressed with the food, the owner came by and personally made some solid recommendations, he is extremely friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was mostly empty on a Friday night, I think they are currently doing most of their business via takeout-Uber Eats and similar platforms, but if you are concerned about eating indoors, the tables were very spaced out.

The restaurant is impeccably clean, you can now see inside the kitchen which also looks spotless. We had Vindaloo Chicken, Tandoori Chicken and a very tasty lamb shank dish, along with some excellent Nan and a good vegetable dish (I don't recall its name).

Give the new Indian Harbor a try, you won't be disappointed.

Always wonderful service at this spot, very pleasant managers and staff. A broad menu with lots of variety and something for everyone. Two of us shared an order of nan, onion fritters, a tofu entree, which came with rice, and a chutney and still had leftovers to take home. Food was delicious. If you have a chance to attend their Mother's Day buffet (in the hope that buffets will be resumed before too long), don't miss it, it's pretty spectacular. Should be noted that they are moving to a new location across 17th Street at the end of 2020.
