Dump – Went to the buffet 11/23/2010 - the food was absolutely rancid - my wife and I are regulars (and eat Indian cuisine throughout NY 3-4x per week) and have never complained in the past. Spoke to managers who apologized and admitted the normal chef was sick - yet refused to deduct 1 penny from our $21 bill - even after the waitress confirmed we immediately complained to her of the horrible after taste and left the remaining "food" untouched. It was near the 4pm buffet deadline, we and 2 other people were left in the room and there was plenty of "food” remaining in the sternos waiting to be thrown out (I think they throw it out) - what was their cost? maybe $2 of uneaten food we put on our plate? yet all we got was a smirk and kiss off - horrible and unprofessional staff - – guess they forgot or don’t care this is NYC not Iowa and these establishments are a dime a dozen – there are 2 superior restaurants several doors down on the same block !!. Deplorable customer service and horrible tasting food aside, the quality is questionable - I will NEVER go near this dump and would caution anyone doing so to BE VERY CAREFUL putting anything from here in your mouth - in fact order a coke and only if it's in a bottle
50 times better than the famous place next door! – Good solid Indian restaurant. Good, authentic food. Nice enough ambience. Clean and pleasant. The staff is also very nice. This used to be my go-to Indian place in the neighborhood until I found one I like even more. Still, it's a very nice choice for a wide range of Indian dishes.
The best indian food in jackson heights! – Let me begin by saying that i eat almost exclusively indian food :) And more often in Delhi Palace then any other place. Should i even continue....? Ok, a few more things: they have a good and diverse menu of southern and northen cuisine, excellent dosa (go with masala or special rava masala one), excellent tea, great tandoor meat dishes, the best dal ever, amazing veg.beriyani, great sweets, everythi... well one thing they make rather poorly is salt lassie, other lassies are good, but they don't even put cumin in their salt lassie. Ok, so not to end on that low "salt lassie" note, i'd say that their buffet is very often different, which is great obviously :)
------- – we had read good things about delhi palace so we thought we would give it a try and i had gone to the restaurant with one of my best friend, and we have found it was very best of our experience we had a appetizers like jinga bhagarella (shirimp) and kabab platter, the main course we had lamb chops and murg balchao ( chicken) masala dosa which all was out standing food and the service we found which was excelent. above from this what i would like to say is that about the most appreciation goes to the manager who looks liken very exprience person, who is very propessional and smart if u really do not know what to order you can take the managers suggetions he the person who can make your meal, he really knows how to suggest a familly style meal for the table, the immpresive things is when you enter the restaurant you will see the lovely smile on the managers face which makes you very competable and makes you feel like homely. this was my first expriece in delhi palace and i did enjoyed very much i would definatly love to come back again and again to delhi palace its been a wonderfull exprience
Excellent food, lousy service. – We had read good things online about Delhi Palace so we thought we would give it a try. We were immediately seated when we arrived and the waiter seemed friendly enough. They had a great looking selection of Northern and Southern Indian food. The appetizers came out quickly. Both were really tasty and we were really looking forward to our main courses. It took quite a while (45 mins) to get our main courses, but we figured that good food generally takes a bit more time. Plus, we couldn't seem to get any of the waitstaff's attention. When our main courses came out some of the items were missing. It took several tries before we got our waiter's attention. We got one of the missing items, but in the end we asked for the other missing dish twice and then finally gave up. When it came time to pay the bill we had a heck of a time trying to get a waiter's attention for the check. It seemed at times we were being ignored. In the end I went to the front and asked for our bill. The missing item was still on the bill, but after speaking to the manager he took it off and apologized profusely saying they were shortstaffed. Really enjoyed the food, but the service left us with a bad taste in our mouths. They very well could have been shortstaffed, maybe someday we will give it a second chance - maybe.
Don't make a mistake by going here – The service continues to take a nosedive in my over last 5+ experiences. They have insisted on 20% gratuities for even 2 people regardless of their quality of provided service. There is no sign that mentions that gratutities will be added to your bill. This applies to both their lunch buffets and dinners The cutlery was dirty and showed remnants of the last use multiple times. The staff is very unfriendly and definitely not hospitable. Customer service is definitely not their strong point. The quality of the food has continued to worsen over time and was not prepared fresh for that day. I would strongly recommend to consider alternative place/genre of food to eat if you are in the Jackson Heights area.
Great Atmosphere, Food & Service! – This restaurant is really pleasant and spacious, not to mention that the buffet and sit-down menu offers refreshingly authentic and amazing dishes. The Grill special was an amazing deal and more than plenty for 2! The prices are great and it's a nice place to go for a more upscale Indian dinner in Jackson Heights.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Inexpensive northern and southern Indian restaurant with an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet and a la carte dinner options in Jackson Heights.
Best Indian Food in Queens! – The Vindaloo was out of this world! If your in to exotic Indian food this place is definitely worth a try.
