Truly the best Indian food in KW. Every dish is superb. Greatly enjoyed by a large party unfamiliar with Indian cuisine, as well as by regular diners. Good vegetarian options. Wonderful service. Bombay aloo, mushroom bhaji, & samosas are particularly good. We will happily continue...More

We were looking for a new takeout Indian restaurant and settled on Kohinoor. When I walked in the restaurant only one table was occupied on a Saturday night. Their menu read well but puns aside, they didn't deliver. There was a remarkable sameness of taste...More

I'm a repeat customer at Koh-i-Noor and I'm never disappointed! I love it so much that I try to bring friends or family who have never been here before, and then love learning that they have also become returning customers! The location is almost easy...More

The food here is consistently excellent. From the moment you are greeted at the door, you feel as though you belong! Polite and friendly wait staff serve you with grace. Superb food in a relaxed atmosphere. Authentic tandoori chicken.

Dine in or take out the food is always fabulous. Fresh and made to order. I like the Dupiaza but it's too mild for me so they spice it up perfectly. That's the best thing about this restaurant. They remember how you enjoy your food...More
