This restaurant has good Indian food and they provide good service. For take-out is great! Eating inside is challenging and the appeal of the restaurant is not inviting. The restaurant could use some uplifting.

With so many Indian restaurants to choose from we've gotten picky. There's nothing wrong with the food here. The staff are nice. The food isn't excellent, but good. If you're looking for comfortable Indian food this is a place you'll be okay with.

Well, overall, food was very, very good- and we ordered a variety of dishes, each as tasty as the others. BUT, after a trip to the restroom to wash hands, and seeing how disgustingly dirty the walls, door, door handles, light plates, walls etc. are, in the both the hallway and the restroom- well, it was difficult to remain positive....

We traveled from Malden to this place on the recommendation of our family members for a Dinner. The place is good with self service. It was found to be neat and clean. Utensils were on a corner table which were to be picked up by us including the drinking water. We ordered the following: 1 Vegetable Pakoras ($ 3.95) 1... More

I live just around the corner from India Palace and have done takeout a number of times over the last three years. The food and service are consistently good, but the prices have recently gone up a bit. If you are looking for a good Indian meal and are in the Union Square area, this is your place.

I frequently stay at the HolidayInn in Somerville and India Palace is my choice for dinner when I am really hungry. Lot of vegetarian options to choose from with varying levels of spice. Chole Saag with Gobi Paratha is my favorite. I would not hesitate to give them 5 stars if they reduce the oil content in their entrees. However... More

Here's a spot for good Indian fare without having to drive back into the city. The meal is tasty and spiced just right. The staff can offer a few suggestions if you are new to this cuisine and you won't be disappointed.

My brother in law suggested this place since he lives around the corner. We had the lunch buffet which included 4 entrees including goat curry. All of the food was fresh, full of flavor and plenty of spice. The Buffett also included fresh naan bread. All this for $25 for 3 adults. Great food and great value.

We've actually only done takeout from them, so I can speak to the service/ambiance, but the food is delicious! Actually my favorite Indian amidst the millions of choices in the area... I usually order (and all are delicious) samosas, aloo paratha, malai kofta, and a lassi. My husband also loves the goat curry!

We opted for the Royal Banquet for 2 which was not only excellent value but tasted great. LB Ayer, was our drinks waiter and was very attentive as was Rozita our food waitress. We thought the place was looking tired and I mentioned this to LB (who I think is the owner also) as constructive criticism, he said he was... More
