Best Indian Food in Vegas – I'm a local and have yet to find an Indian restaurant that has really stood out. Origin Indian Bistro, Gaylord in RIo, and Bollywood down Sahara are all good but don't even compare to this one.
This menu was incredible. A complete gathering of both North and Southern Indian food. The dosas were just like ones you will find in India. More selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts than any Indian restaurant I have been too.
Finally...an Indian restaurant that isn't painfully outdated! When I walked in I thought "This is the nicest interior out of any Indian restaurant I have ever been to." Warm colors, nice tables, chairs, booths and dinnerware. It has clearly been remodeled and they did an excellent job.
It's in an older area, but so close to the strip and you don't have to walk through a huge hotel to get to the restaurant like you do with Gaylord.
The staff was lovely. Completely kind and helpful. The quality of food was noticeably tastier yet still affordable. I will definitely be returning to this place many more times.
TERRIBLE! – I gave this Indian 1 star because of the decor.
The food is quite honestly terrible. I love Indian food & have tried different variations all over the world & this by far is the worst.
They are using dark chicken meat in the Korma & chicken tikka masala which should be white meat. The sauce for these 2 dishes should be creamy & full of flavor...The masala tasted like tomatoe & Basil, the Korma hmmmm of nothing!
My advice don't waste your money...Have a steak!
Very good food – I ate here for the first time yesterday after seeing it for many years. Some of the best Indian my wife and I have ever had, and likely the best in Vegas that we have had. The dishes were very tasty, and had a fresh and flavorful quality to them. The decor is very nice and they have redone the outside (so it looks nothing like the picture). I found the service to be polite and friendly. The naan was good, but not great, certainly not the best I have ever had, but the other dishes were very good. Overall, very good.
Amazing – Well since it was my first time having INdian cuisine , my partner and i decided to go to the very " best" restaraunt in town; India Palace. I was definetely impressed. The food was amazing we had garlic bread with some type of chiken tikka . Something like that . Overall the service was good and the food was amazing . I would definetely recommend this place to anyone who is looking gor indian foond.
Good food, cheap price – I just moved in the city and was looking for a good Indian restaurant with good prices. After reading the other reviews on this site, I decided to try it but remembering that I might get unfriendly service but good food. I went there to try their lunch buffet, the other reviewers were right, the food and the price were good. As for the service, I didn't think they were unfriendly. I thought the waiters were "quite", maybe you can see that as unfriendly. But they were on top of it, they contantly filled up my water and immediatly took the dirty plates away. Overall, it was a good experience, I recommend it.
Food good enough to keep us coming back despite one experience – They have the better Indian food in all of Vegas. If you like spicy food, they know how to put on the heat, when asked to. The chicken and lamb dishes and nan are fantastic. However, poor attitudes and customer service seem to be their downfall. Order, eat, pay, and leave...they indirectly rush you in that order and without a smile. But we love the food so much we still go there. On our drive there, we try to guess if they will be either moody or unfriendly...sorta prepping and coaching ourselves to brush off their bad customer service and be mindful that we're going for the food. One major disgust for me -- I was using their restroom before being served. I was in a stall and heard the waitress (the older woman) come out of the other stall, after hearing her flush. She went straight out the door without washing her hands. We all know that's not acceptable. Now I was just hoping that she washed her hands in their kitchen sink! Well, take from this truth what you want. If it doesn't bother you, then enjoy the great food. At least it wasn't the cook I caught.
I love this place – The other reviews are true - the location isn't that great... As far as Indian lunch buffets go though, this is the best we've had so far. Everything seemed very fresh and there was a great selection. I can't wait to go back.
Dummied down – 03/11 At one time this restaurant served the best Indian food in Las Vegas, but now it languishes in the middle of the pack as many new restaurants have opened in recent years. Since our last visit approximately 3 years ago, the restaurant has undergone a complete makeover so the dining room is quite nice though the immediate area surrounding the restaurant remains depressed. We did not require our reservation as the dining room was empty. Shortly after being seated we were served complimentary papadum and 3 chutney/sauces. We decided to share orders of garlic naan, chicken tika masala, basmati rice and lamb sagwala. The flavor and spice level of each dish proved to be too tame for my taste buds.
10/07 Until around a year ago, this was the best Indian restaurant in Las Vegas and remains a favorite. On our most recent visit we ordered naan, basmati rice, chicken tika marsala and rata lamb. We received naan, basmati rice, chicken tika marsala and rata chicken. Not a problem because we have never had rata chicken or rata lamb or rata anything for that matter. Each entre was both flavorful and spicy. Service remains attentive.

02/05 - We arrived at about 6PM to find the parking lot almost full due to a birthday celebration by a large group of Red Hats. I became concerned we would be late for our show because of a back up in the kitchen, but we were able to place our orders first. We shared orders of chicken tika marsala, chicken korma, naan and basmati rice. The chicken was extremely tender and everything was delicious as usual.
Terrific buffet! – My husband and I are seriously into Indian food. We decided to check out this place, and as we were driving through a not so great part of town, we started to re-think our decision. Just about that time we saw it, and thought we'd have a look. The inside doesn't match the wonky surroundings at all -- it's really very nice. The buffet was spectacular -- very authentic Indian food, and having lived in England and had lots of this cuisine, this is high praise. The saag was creamy, the salad was crisp, the chutneys tangy and savory, meat entrees were perfect. They even had an unusual veggie dish with a tart sweet flavor that I'd never had. They bring fresh naan to the table, and have more than the standard Indian beer. Sometimes on Indian buffets they're always the same, but we've been back more than once and it was different each time -- yet retained the deliciousness. You really should give it a try.
An uninspired location doesn't affect the excellent cuisine. – In Short
Despite a less-than-desirable location, India Palace has quickly become one of the city's best Indian restaurants. Patrons shouldn't be fooled by the plain storefront--inside, casual elegance is the order of the day (paricularly the intimate, wingback chairs for couples' dining), along with consistently excellent Northern and Southern Indian dishes.
