I had the lunch buffet before but never had a sit down dinner. Food was very good, wait staff were very knowledgeable on Indian cuisine and made great recommendations. Service was a tad slow but not terrible; dinner shouldn't be rushed. This place is a classic example of not judging a book by its cover. We will return again

So we went on Sunday and there was a nice variety of food and the prices were very reasonable. The ambience is underwhelming.

Located Raj Mahal while travelling through Rochester and were delighted to have an excellent buffet lunch spread containing both North Indian & South Indian dishes. A large choice of both vegetarian & non-vegetarian dishes was available. Management & staff is polite and friendly. This restaurant is able to attract clientele from a wide spectrum that testifies to its appeal.

My wife and I met up with an old friend, and decided on the lunch buffet at Raj Mahal. I'd ordered take-out from here before, but this was the first time I had occasion to eat in the restaurant itself. I can't recommend the lunch buffet highly enough. There was a good mix of northern and southern Indian dishes. And... More

This was my second trip to this restaurant and I cannot say enough about the food, atmosphere and service. I have eaten at other Indian restaurants in Rochester but this is by far the best and worth the ride across town.

Tasty Indian food for very good price. I am from India and I would rate this as one of the best Indian restaurants I have visited in USA.

Went there about 10 times (including a few times with Indian friends). Was never disappointed. Lots of options, always freshly cooked and warm. Great desserts. Mango lassi and chai are part of the buffet (no extra charge). Plenty of tables.
