We have tried many Indian lunch buffets and this one is one of our favorites, especially since we live about 10 minutes away. Our younger son doesn't like spicy food so he usually cannot handle much Indian food. Even when they say it is mild, it is usually too spicy for him. This buffet is the mildest Indian food around...

The selection was perfect and the layers of flavor wonderful. If you like medium heat for spiciness, choose the level 2. We took the 3 and it was pretty toasty. Service and family pride are evident.

Everything arrived to our table hot and fresh. There was a group of four of us and we each tried a different dish. We shared Naan and Rice. The lamb was tender and the chicken was well seasoned. Probably the best indian food I've ever had. It's nice that they allow you to choose your spice level. I've returned twice... More

One of the very best lunch buffets around. Outstanding veg pakoras, okra masala, channa and potatoes. Fresh crispy flavorful Naan. Excellent tandoori chicken. The place for lunch for anyone hungry around Federal Way.

Went for dinner with the wife and daughter and have a perfect meal (Grilled MahiMahi Fillet). It is totally different food from the normal restaurant tastes and was very good. The tika curry sauce was excellent. Also make sure to order one of the warm Naan breads as a appetizer, which is very good and different also!! Highly recommend this... More

Hadn't been to the restaurant in a while and glad we visited it again! Had a delicious meal of Chicken Tikki Masala and Mutter Paneer. Appreciate the freshly ground spices which meld to create memorable flavors! We used the warm pillowy naan to sop up every bit of those delicious sauces. Appreciate the elegant atmosphere and owner Kabul Gill taking... More

I have eaten at East India Grill several times while in Federal Way for work. I have ordered many different dishes and it's always delicious! Not fancy, but great food. If you love Indian food, give this restaurant a try. I had the mixed grill tonight.

I went for lunch with uncle and mother. I was thrilled to see that they had a lunch buffet. I love being able to try a bit of this and that. The food was fantastic, very fresh with great vegan options. And the service was friendly. I will be back.

Thank Marla M
