I like to get take out. The food is good, I look forward to it and am never disappointed. I don't feel that it it the BEST indian food in the area, nevertheless I keep coming back. I always get the same thing, chicken tikka masala, chole, pakora.
AWFUL – After ordering/eating six different dishes,three breads and Samosas, from Star of India I think i can sum up the restaurant in three words: DO NOT GO, This was the worst Indian food I have ever eaten. I ordered Six different dishes, three breads and Samosas. The dishes were awful, greasy, and tasteless; the breads were flat, tasteless and dry; the Samosas were the WORST. Maybe I caught them on a bad day, but I would not walk through the doors of their restaurant again. The bummer was, I had eleven people for a birthday dinner, two had never had Indian food before, and this restaurant did not provide the experience of dining I was looking for. Keep driving and do not enter.
THE BEST – I have been going to the star of India for over 5years and I love the food! Its worth the wait and the money its the best!
We drive from oxford,mi for Indian food – Never a bad meal. Well worth the drive. Everyone should try this place very cozy,peaceful,enjoyable. AWESOME The blend of spices are just great. The breads are sooooo good . The food the best. If you love international flavores this is a must check out place to be.
The best indian food ever. frendly service,fast,always so tasty wth excellent blend of spices – They use to mbe n Troy and we fell in love with their food.WE went alot.Now they are in Ferndale.and I make the drive from oxford for the wonderful dishes they make. The sauces are so good,breads are awesome, the appetizers set the pace so wonderful. So many great thing on the menu you can't go wrong. Their service is great ,curtious, friendly and fast couldn't ask for a better time.
Just not good enough – Star of India is just not that good. Every time I go in, I get the sense that nobody really cares - about anything. The servers are indifferent, the decor is bland, the prices are cheap - but alas, you get what you pay for. The food all tastes the same - literally, the palak paneer tastes more or less the same as the malai kofta, etc. Indian food should be complex and offer little surprises in your mouth. This food just doesn't - never has, probably never will. A disappointment.
Very quiet – I really like it here. Get the curry or butter chicken and we definitely recommend the coconut/pineapple bread. Food is not spectacular but the service and ambience is very peaceful.
Fine food at a reasonable cost. – Well prepared and tasty. Service is good, food excellent, though not fancy. A place those not familiar with Indian food can feel welcomed
Bland-and-blah buffet – Assuming I was going to have the buffet, the waiter did not bring a menu until I asked for one. After a quick glance, I opted for the buffet ($6.95), which fortunately had many vegetarian options. However, the palak paneer (usually my favorite) was sadly lacking; the cheese was sparse and cut in tiny slivers, and the spinach base was weak and thin. The "naan" was plain pita. Everything else was also bland and watered-down. The cloth tablecloths were covered with paper placemats. Additionally, the staff never took their eyes off my non-eating friend, as if she were going to steal some buffet food from my plate, and their constant stares made her uncomfortable. If you want good Indian food, see what other options exist before you go here!
Bland Indian Food? – Although it will do in a pinch, the food here just doesn't have that complex, delicious spicey flavor of most Indian food. The nan is slightly sweet, and the sauces are often bland and soupy. The one exception are the somosas, which are crisp and flavorful. They also have a lot of vegetarian options.
