Great food, great selection – The food here is outstanding. However, I've always been disappointed that the samosas and pakoras are usually not warm at all, and rarely crispy. I've eaten at India Palace a couple times a month for a while, and the food is almost always different when I go in. Be careful with the lamb curry, because you may chip a tooth on the occasional bone fragment. The mango pudding is to die for, and it truly homemade. Unlike other Indian restaurants I've been to where you can tell it's vanilla pudding with mango flavor, this is the real deal. The milkballs are great, too. I highly recommend the chicken tikka masala, chicken curry, and tandoori chicken. Avoid the tomato-coconut soup if they have it out; it tastes like canned tomato soup and has little coconut flavor.
Very tasty! – My husband and i love this place. The buffet is always rotated, it's usually pretty busy in there too. So everything is fresh. The staff is friendly and always there t orefill your drink or take plates. My 1 yr old son even loves the nan bread, vegetable rice, a few of the curries and loves the rice pudding. We have also got take out of the chicken tikka masala and it's a lways delicious!
I'm hooked – So I'm in San Antonio on a business trip and I stumble across this gem (it's close to the hotel I'm staying at), and I've been there three times in a week! It's quietly tucked away in a shopping center, but the interior is very clean, with very well-presented tables and Indian decor and music. The food.....wow. I've tried probably ten or twelve different things on the buffet and every one of them bursts with flavor, and the kitchen makes sure that the food is rotated often and everything tastes painstakingly fresh. The bone-in tandoori chicken is moist and meaty....don't pass it up. They have a quaint selection of wines and several hard-to-find Indian beers to go with the meal (try a Dansburg). My only small complaint, which is probably just a personal preference, is that a few of their dishes are just a tad heavy on the cilantro. It's a powerful herb that overpowers the other spices and flavors a little bit and leaves the palate thinking "mexican food" for just a second... but hey in San Antonio, that may be a bonus!
Overall, two big thumbs up to Indian Palace... keep up the good work, my friends.
A local favorite – I LOVE this place. I've never ate off of the actual menu, I usually get the buffet. There are so many choices! Even though there are a variety of meat dishes, it's a great choice when I want to stick to veggies. Love the curry and the spices, and not too overwhelming either. It's a crowded place during lunch, but I've never had trouble getting a seat.
I like it hot!! – I love this place. It's a good value and the food is delicious. Im a veggie and I love that they have lots of vegetarian choices. My faves include spicy garbanzo and the Saag panner (spinach and cheese). The rice pudding is good too.
Must eat restaurant – I travel all over the U.S. and the value and quality of my meal can not be beaten by any other Indian restaurant I have tried. If you live in San Antonio and want a change from Tex-Mex I would recommend the buffet. Great quality and the food in the buffet is always replenished. Enjoy.
Family-owned restaurant features tantalizing lunch and dinner buffets of northern Indian cuisine. – In Short
Variety is the spice of dining at this friendly strip-mall eatery that offers an amazing menu of specialties. Marinated tandoori chicken and fish, or a combo of chicken, fish, lamb and shrimp, are cooked in a clay oven that reaches 800 degrees--baking, roasting and grilling simultaneously. Also popular are the fiery vindaloos--chicken, lamb and shrimp--prepared in a spicy sauce with potatoes. Reservations are recommended for parties of more than six.
FuNkY cHiKeN! – After moving here from Boston I thought I'd never find a decent Indian joint. Welp, have I got news for y'all! This place is the BOMB!!! It might not be the fanciest looking restaurant in SA (which will prolly turn off those N-sders), but for those of us who want a hearty, tasty, and cheap meal....this IS the Indian place for you. India Palace is full of flavors that are all diverse and enjoyable. Peeps who can't tell salt from pepper should not come here. Buffet is awesome! Always fresh, hot and yummy! Dinner is great too! And the prices are DAMN good!!!! Also currently expanding the dining area :-)
