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.

When I drove up to this place I was leery since restaurants in strip malls are hit or miss. This restaurant was definitely a hit. I ordered the lamb tikka masala and I have to say that it was some the best tikka masala I have ever had. The service was good and everyone was really friendly. I would highly... More

We had the lunch buffet for 11.95 with excellent choices. Chicken Masala, vegetable pakour, curry, lamb. I don't like lamb and I liked this. Loved the home made mango Ice cream for dessert. Although, I see some did not find the service up to par, I thought our service was excellent. I would highly recommend.

We were driving from Airport down south on I5, hence picked up this place. We were here for dinner. The food was good, the service was not bad. May be bit over priced for the quality they provide.

Have a video of naan bread cooking inside of a Tandoori Oven! I have never had a meal there I did not love. If you like Indian food or have never even tried Indian food this is your place. They even have a cooking class once a month!!!

I am from Dallas where there is no shortage of Indian food. This place is overpriced and the food is not worth the money. I saw all the best of Seattle awards on the door and wondered - perhaps the chef had a bad day? Even the quantity was too small , the Nan's burnt. Do not recommend - drive... More
