Review №1

During Covid they are serving buffet. $10.99 does not include tea. Tea $2.50. Or other a la carte. Very tasty, huge dinning room, friendly staff. I'd try it again. They also do orders to go. They were also practicing social distancing. Face mask required to enter.

Review №2

We've been going here since they opened usually on Sundays after church. We always get great service. Since Covid they now serve you at the buffet. You just tell the server what you want. Tables are spaced out and the place is clean.

Review №3

A friend recommended this restaurant and said she and her family have enjoyed the food and service here for years. I went yesterday and agree with her positive raves. The food was fresh and delicious. They had a buffet during the lunch hour and it was a perfect opportunity to try a little bit of everything.

Review №4

Providing a buffet and following covid guidelines is commendable. Some of the items in the menu were good but rest all were average. Could have included some more tiffen varities too.

Review №5

This is a wonderful Indian restaurant with amazing and fresh food. The various types of curry and Indian food are so good. And the naans were fluffy, warm, and the best that I couldn't stop eating it. The vegetable rice was also good. And there are also other Indian desserts that were flavorful and delicious. The mango flavored pudding(I think) was my favorite of the desserts. The interior design was culturally artistic. And the owners/workers are very nice and kind. I'm so glad I recommended this place for my family dinner. I definitely will go here again!

Review №6

Buffet style. Nice variety of meats, veggies, desserts. Some of the BEST naan I've ever had! Dining room is large & clean. Location is really cute. Awesome place.

Review №7

Delicious authentic Indian food! We are so happy to have found this restaurant. The food is clean, exceptionally tasty, and cozily homemade. Service was wonderful as well. Beware, when you order a spicy dish it will be legitimately spicy.

Review №8

5 of us ate here and the food was absolutely fantastic. Popadoms, appetizers, mains, nan breads, beers and soft drinks all for $150. For what we got we'll worth the money.A really wide selection ordered between the 5 of us. Food vary tasty, great portion sizes and the service was very good.

Review №9

Normally i would have posted a pic but food looked so good i couldn't stop. fast and courteous service. the bill was fair. menu is like a cafe in boston i liked.

Review №10

I typically love this place, but this delivery was a bust. The food was decent, but I found a wad of hair in my second container of rice. Thank God I'd eaten from the first container. Guess I won't be ordering from here again.

Review №11

There food is fantastic and the service is superb, especially the way they adapted during this pandemic. They now serve you when you come up to the buffet to reduce contamination and have social distance seating, which is a plus for me. The only downside to this place is the sodas are per can, but honestly order one of there delicious refillable teas and you wont even miss it. The fresh bread with herbs and oil is more then enough to make you want to return.

Review №12

So I love this place and I am happy it survived covid. You can still do the buffet! They serve you, with mask and gloves. Brilliant!!

Review №13

I enjoy finding local places with vegetarian or vegan options. Taj Palace was great food options and everything tasted great. Highly recommended

Review №14

Don't fret if it's busy, it is worth the wait. Nothing but pleasant experiences here. The bill was good for what you get. I see why this place has a lot of good reviews.

Review №15

Food is good but eat only Chinese and Himalayan food .North Indian food is not that good.

Review №16

Great selection of tasty foods on the buffet and don't miss out on the chai tea it's very nice. l have been coming for years and am thankful they are close.

Review №17

Wow! If you don't find something on the lunch buffet you like, you don't like Indian food. For a buffet, everything was excellent. They bring fresh nan to each table. As you walk in the refreshing scent of, I think sandalwood, incense is present.Service is excellent as are the real plates, metal silverware, and real cloth napkins. I always eat way too much here, just can not help it, the food is that good.If I had any complaint it would be the Tandor Chicken, it was still very good, but for some reason it was not of the same high quality of the rest of the buffet. Might be just me? All this food for less than $12, quite a deal for lunch.This restaurant rates 5 out of 5 to me. I feel it's the best I'm San Antonio . Well done!

Review №18

This is probably the best Indian food I've ever eaten and I've eaten all over the country

Review №19

Normally I would have posted a pic but food looked so good I couldn't stop. It has a great interior.

Review №20

Entered near ten, it was not crowded. I'll return with my coworkers. Menu is like a place in San Francisco I liked.

Review №21

Awesome Indian food buffet for a good price. Very flavorful dishes, and many different dishes to choose from. They have more options than I've seen at other places. Love their Tandoori Chicken especially for the fact they have the smaller pieces without bone. Definitely suggest checking this place out if you're looking for some delicious all you can eat Indian food.

Review №22

Excellent food, gentleman quickly brought out my order promptly after pulling up curbside. Had enough leftovers for lunch the next day.

Review №23

I like it here, excellent food & service. Ambience reminds me of Colorado Springs area.

Review №24

Adequate but this cafeteria style does not endear one to buffet style eating since you have to wait for them to serve you. Nan was more like a slice of pizza with no topping. Chicken curry was outstanding.

Review №25

Super appetizing. i will be bringing family next time.

Review №26

Best place to get Indian food. The buffet is fresh and good.

Review №27

If your looking for Indian food that tastes great and doesn't leave you paying for it later then this is your place. They have great food and friendly service. I will definitely come back to eat here.

Review №28

Good Indian restaurant in this area.

Review №29

Nice atmosphere and comfortable. Buffet was well stocked with plenty of options. My personal opinion was the food was a bit bland and every dish had a similar flavor. But perhaps that's just me. Worth a try and decide for yourself.

Review №30

Awesome sauces awesome flavor great food

Review №31

Wonderful place!! Their chai is a must get!!

Review №32

Had the biryanis here a few weeks ago and have been thinking about it every sense. Love the variety and the fresh flavors. Buffet offers something for all and they have Khmer, my favorite dessert

Review №33

Oh my goodness!An amazing buffet, their samosas and lentil soup?? Killer!The restaurant itself is very pretty and very red.Very vegan friendly buffet, more than half the dishes being vegan or vegetarian.I totally recommend this joint !

Review №34

Buffet clean food did not have much spice good prices e lunch buffet

Review №35

Littered with dead and live roaches, spent 70$ to pick up my food and didn't even get to eat it a darn shame.Wonder when the health inspector last came by

Review №36

The food was not bad but not something that made me feel like I'd go back for again. Not much of a selection either. Great service for sure though.

Review №37

Great food with great selection. Waitstaff not as attentive...ran out of naan and never refilled.

Review №38

This is a consistently good Indian buffet served with a smile. They do have an a la carte menu I have never ordered from but have seen people do and it seems delicious. The buffet menu is always the same which, to me, it is a good thing because I know what I'm getting. I have tried other Indian restaurants and so far, this is the best buffet. Give it a try, there's something for every taste.. really good food anyone can enjoy.

Review №39

Really, really good food and service. Lots of options on their buffet. Food was hot, fresh a d very tasty. I will be back.

Review №40

Great place to eat, buffet has great variety, great service.

Review №41

I'm obsessed with this place; I order the lamb or chicken biryani almost every week to go, and I think the lunch buffet is delicious, but I've only had that once and I've never dined in for dinner. If you order something off the menu and ask for it to be spicy, it's genuinely spicy, unlike other places where a spicy is about as spicy as a bell pepper. Now I will say, this isn't the best Indian food I've ever had in my life, but it is, by far, the best Indian food in San Antonio and all around amazing. Their staff is also very friendly, unlike another popular Indian hot spot near the medical center.

Review №42

Very delicious food, great service, and wonderful atmosphere. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

Review №43

As close to perfection as anyone could hope for. Aweso.e buffet. Only addition I'd like to see would be sliced fresh pineapple.

Review №44

Everything was good , excellent service..Hummm but the rice pudding THE BEST, SO RICH AND DELICIOUS My husband and I will come back again

Review №45

Worst pathetic food ever had in any Indian restaurant. Unfriendly and unprofessional staff. Please avoid taking your meals here. Don't waste your time and money here.

Review №46

Love this place! The buffet is the best!

Review №47

Great service, great ambiance, awesome location, very good interior decor. But food was hit or miss. I went for dinner buffet something like kadhi or raita were out of this world and something like pakora and samosas were not only bad but served cold. I also ordered shahi paneer from ala carte menu and that was pretty good as well.

Review №48

This is the best Indian food in San Antonio. The buffet has all the expected staples and everything is delicious. The staff are very friendly and clearly care a great deal about their restaurant and its customers. The lamb biryani from the menu is probably my favorite thing from here; also, the raita is amazing. The naan is always exceptional, especially when paired with the mint chutney. We order food from here at least once a week, and the quality is always incredible. Thank you to the owners and staff for always making our experience here a great one.

Review №49

I look forward to a return trip.

Review №50

Deliciousness! They have a good variety of vegetables, meat,rice, yoghurt sauces and good naan bread.

Review №51

I have been to so many Indiana restaurants and this is one of the best!! Lunch or dinner buffets with less than $14 per person. Try the rice pudding and the mango they are delicious!!

Review №52

One of the best restaurants around San Antonio for Indian cuisine. I had lunch buffet and had an amazing experience. Friendly stuff, good service, delicious food with substantial variety. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Review №53

The best Indian food in San Antonio.

Review №54

The sign out front doesn't lie , this is very good Indian cuisine!!! If you are in the area this is a must food stop . Staff is friendly and helpful .

Review №55

$13.00 for the buffet which isn't bad, only I expect more than 10 options, all very similar ( and what my son described as a generally canned ravioli taste). The rice pudding, sadly, tasted something like Pledge and was more like rice soup. Not many people there--maybe 10 including us and I see why!!

Review №56

Big selection of tasty items, a little spicier than India Palace in the medical district. Warm, welcoming service. Nice decor.

Review №57

Impressive decor. Friendly and helpful staff. We had the lunch buffet. Tender and fresh naan brought out to the table. Plenty of meat or vegetable main dishes were offered. I tried a little bit of everything! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience ! I would eat here again and strongly recommend this restaurant to friends and family. Check it out!

Review №58

The price was reasonable and the food was good. Truly Indian food here.

Review №59

One of my favorite Indian food restaurants in SA. The place is very clean and you get your money's worth at this lunch buffet.The dishes taste freshly prepared and are always piping hot. Chicken tikka masala and saag paneer are my favorites. Fresh naan is delivered to the table on request. Check it out!

Review №60

Visited during lunch on a Thursday. There were about 5 other diners there at the time. This place has a daily buffet. Although I ordered from the menu, I did check out the buffet and it had a good variety. The menu food was good. Not the best Indian food I've ever had but definitely the best I've had in San Antonio. Waitress was very kind and polite. I would go again.

Review №61

Wonderful food!Gracious service. Reminded me of my friends' cooking back in Illinois.

Review №62

I was craving Indian food and India Taj Palace hit the spot! Really yummy buffet and neither me nor my husband got a bad thing. It was all spot on!

Review №63

I'm not sure it's as good as the reviews claim. I got there around 6pm. The hostess came out from the back and greeted me. She walked me to a booth and took my order. I went to the buffet and opened the rice and it was messy and pretty picked over. The tried a little bit of everything. The samosa was cold and super oily like it had been sitting there. I really only liked the curried veggies. The chicken dishes were super dry. Everything else was edible. The naan they brought out was over cooked it tasted burned.

Review №64

Love it. Myself and family go at least 2-4 times a month

Review №65

Love this place! Great food, good selection for vegetarians and reasonable prices

Review №66

We had their lunch buffet which cost around 11 usd (can't remember correctly). I was looking for halal option and found that only the lamb was halal. However, they have a rich vegetarian options. Most of the dishes were good. I really liked the vegetable pakora and the chatnis (sauce). The mango custard in desert was average. Golap jamun and barfi was pretty good.

Review №67

Never disappoints. My husband and I come often and no matter what time of day it is the buffet is always fresh, flavorful and great quality

Review №68

Great buffet. Tasty naan bread.

Review №69

Great buffet. It's better earlier in the day. Family place. We have never needed to order off the menu. Very nice service. Family owned and they remember their customers and that makes for a nice, welcoming experience. A good selection of about 12 entrees plus sides and 3 desserts on the buffet.

Review №70

You will have a great meal here - I have tried almost everything here now and it's delicious.Great family that owns this place as well!

Review №71

Service was good. Food was too. I like it hot so I choose items from the buffet with peppers and pepper seeds all was good. Used the pepper paste to kick up anything that needed a boost. I will return.

Review №72

Best! If youre new to Indian food like I am try the buffet!

Review №73

Delicious food and pleasant atmosphere. We will definitely be coming back.

Review №74

The people here are warm and friendly. The food was delicious with many vegetarian and vegan friendly. Wonderful flavors on the fresh buffet. Can hardly wait to try the menu items.

Review №75

I went to buffet twice and ended with sweet rice. Place is so clean and people are so attentive and price right for stonework area. If I lived near by I would be going once a week!

Review №76

I crave Indian food from time to time and being on the Northeast side, I don't want to drive all the way to the Medical Center for good Indian food. This buffet nestled in Stone Oak is a fair distance from me and has amazing food! Everyone is very friendly here, I love the Chai Masala tea and I love the decor. The paintings and table cloths and wall pattern are all beautiful and you can tell there is great care for the food and restaurant in this place. I'm ready to go back for some Saag Paneer right now!

Review №77

Really good food. Sometimes not good at making sure the food stays hot in the buffet.

Review №78

Really great buffet, naan bread is amazing

Review №79

Excellent spot to spend time alone or talk business. The bill won't shock you.

Review №80

Delicious Indian food! Clean and nice atmosphere. They bring fresh naan to your table!

Review №81

Great variety, pleasant atmosphere. Plenty of food options.

Review №82

Good selection. The food is good for a buffet and the staff is friendly to kids learning about new foods

Review №83

The food is amazing here! I have been coming here for at least a couple of years now. The menu has the standard fare for Indian restaurants with many other additions that I have never seen in other restaurants like the curry pakora and goat curry. Lunch and dinner buffet are always of the same excellent quality. It's a little far way from us, but Taj is worth the drive and the price.

Review №84

Always amazing food, best Indianrestaurant in San Antonio

Review №85

Amazing buffet. Very clean, well kept, friendly service, and the curry dishes are incredible. Also the price for the buffet is soo affordable and soo many choices! I will definitely recommend and will be back.

Review №86

Good, quiet place to enjoy their food. Nothing was over the top amazing, but nothing was bad either. Pricey for what it is, however the buffet allows those who haven't tried the food to sample several different things.

Review №87

Food and service are excellent however there is no music so you eat in silence, even light classical would be nice. Otherwise great cuisine!

Review №88

The most amazing food, it really is the best Indian buffet ever ! Every little thing I would taste I fell in love ! The rice was moist and tasty not hard like most buffet ! Was best experience ever ! And I would recommend the drink the mango lassi :)

Review №89

Food is ok. Environment could use some polish. It's a buffet so service was ok.

Review №90

Try ot you will like it. They have lunch and dinner buffet. Super local businesses. Is tasty n if you're not sure, ask and they will tell you about the food.

Review №91

We have been here several times over the years. Their buffet is always amazing. Especially the tandoori chicken.

Review №92

Our family love this restaurant. The food is fantastic, love the buffet.

Review №93

A bit pricy but definitely worth it, everything is so delicious!

Review №94

Better than other Indian buffets. Likely the best variety of all other buffets.

Review №95

I love Indian food but I'm starting to get disappointed by Indian restaurants all across America. They are all buffets, they all use low grade meat, and they all give you drinks in cans instead of having fountains. Why not be a normal restaurant that serves dishes and has a selection of menu options? Get more classy guys

Review №96

Looking forward to coming back with my relatives. It has a nice atmosphere. Atmosphere is similar to a cafe in San Jose I loved.

Review №97

The chicken Korma is so good, best Indian food I have ever had.

Review №98

Good Food and Customer service!

Review №99

Best samosas best naan.#facts

Review №100

My favorite Indian restaurant in the entire world! We always get lamb korma and it is perfect every single time! They have an awesome buffet and the owners/staff are spectacularly sweet/friendly. Try it, you will not regret it! I only wish there were more of them!
