First time having Indian food. Everything was fantastic. Well seasoned hot out of the kitchen. I was able to see the cook handling the food and making it from scratch from where I sat, a big plus knowing it's made to order. My only complaint is the server who I suspect is the owner. No help with the menu, I'm... More

This is an authentic Indian restaurant featuring authentic dishes. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. Chai tea is plentiful. They have an all you can eat lunch buffet daily featuring dishes like Aloo Gobi and Tikka Masala. Favorites of my family are the Aloo Tikki, Cucumber Raita, the various curries, and of course plenty of fresh Naan bread! Most people... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant. It has steadily going downhill for the past 6 years. Once in awhile you can get good service but for the most part the staff goes out of their way to ignore you. I have had to refill my water glass in the bathroom. The bathroom by the way lacks paper towel and... More

The ambiance was upscale but the prices were surprisingly moderate. I ordered the Lamb Rodan Josh and it was served with a warming chafing dish and was very well spiced. I've never seen that in any reastaurant. My wife ordered the Chicken Tikka (a tandoori) and it was served sizzeling hot. We also orderd a side of tasty basmati rice... More

Service was pretty much non-existent. We had plates sitting on the table for our entire visit (we had the buffet). The Chai tea and sodas included in lunch buffet were a plus, but the food was mediocre. The food was cold. The chicken tikka masala was lacking chicken, and the tandoori chicken tasted like fish. However the gulab jamun (dessert... More

I've been here twice, once for the lunch buffet with my friend who does not usually get Indian food (his wife dislikes it). I was impressed enough that I for sure wanted to visit with my wife (who has been to India and Bangladesh and lived for almost two decades in the the Bay Area with all the great Indian... More

We travel quite often and India House has the best Indian Food ever. Especially the Lamb dishes, well seasoned, lean and tender.

Since i live in Rockford India House is the only option for Indian food, i had been here twice. Once for dinner and in the recent past for buffet lunch. There were few dishes like Naan, three types of Veg curries and two meat curries, Basmathi rice, pakora, fruit chat, yogurt, Jamoon, Kheer and masala Chai. Taste is OK but... More

Food is quite good, service is very poor. The lady owner is an ignorant sow. The items offered for the lunch buffet are mediocre. Order off the menu for a better meal.

We were greeted by a friendly smile and an invitation to take a seat. Shortly after scanning the menu we decided to order Chicken Tikka Masala in two different levels of spicy...they kindly accommodated our differences in pallets. Garlic Naan is also something you must try, they give you a knife and fork but I used the bread to grab... More
