Lovely place to meet. Mr. Dhillon’s passion for food brought him to Cincinnati from Toronto. His creativity and attention to detail are worth mentioning. Individual attention to each table by him and his smiling staff, makes it a unique place. A must try! I know I will be returning when in town.

The Indian Spice Train is awesome! The food and the attentive service are amazing! The Tandoori Ribeye or the Lamb Chops are must haves. It is a hidden gem in Liberty Township that is well worth your time!

I visited the restaurant based on a magazine article. The restaurant is about 45 minutes away from home so it’s a destination trip. I was the sole diner at lunch and I was delighted the staff took time to answer every question I had regarding menu items and spice levels and preparation. I ordered an appetizer sampler which I could have very easily enjoyed as an entree. The chicken samplings were perfectly seasoned and prepared. The lamb chops beautifully charred and surprisingly moist. I ordered the chicken 65 as an entree and again was pleased with this dish. Very hot yet crazy delicious. The rice was a little too dry for my taste. The grilled naan was the best I have enjoyed. I topped all of this off with freshly made pistachio ice cream. I had the opportunity to talk with the chef as well as the owner. Both took obvious pride in their restaurant. It was pricey for an everyday lunch but considering the size of my doggy bags it’s a reasonable value.

My wife and I had dinner here with our son and our daughter and her family. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The food quality and quantity was great. The seven of us enjoyed sampling each other’s dishes. Our server was prompt and friendly, happily spending time with us to help with our selections. At the conclusion of our meal, the chef stopped by our table to introduce himself and check if everything was to our satisfaction. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

Inconsistent spice/hotness level from visit to visit. Last visit 5 was too hot, this time 4 was mild. Black lentil soup and Chicken Tandoori was very good - flavour and spices but saag paneer and Veg tikka masala was bland, sweetish and not very tasty. The rice came late and wasn’t fully cooked yet. Server was polite and reasonable quick and responsive.

Indian Spice train was an excellent choice for dinner. Very nice restaurant for quiet dinners. And the service was perfect, friendly and ready to answer all of our questions about the menu. Everyone in our party enjoyed the various entrees which were custom seasoned for heat. The mango chutney was a big hit, but the naan got various reviews from our table.

We really enjoyed our dinner at India Spice Train. They had the more traditional Indian fare along with some exceptional entries that were a little different. The owner is very pleasant and all personnel provide excellent service without too much interference.

It wasn’t a bad experience, the staff was very helpful in helping us, but at the end of the day, I didn’t really understand the menu, so I ordered something I didn’t like. Really not a bad place if you like Indian food.

Took several colleagues and a visiting guest from India for dinner at Indian Spice Train last night - so very glad I did! Both the food and service were fantastic. We received excellent menu recommendations from both the wait staff and the chef himself. Prices are reasonable. Indian Spice Train is, hands down, the best Indian food I have had in the Cincinnati area. Highly recommended!
