See reviews for Dancing Elephant II. We were excited to try Passage to India based on the great reviews, but only after being seated did we realize it had been sold. Food and service ok, but pricey for what we received.

We can only recommend this place! The service was very friendly. The variety is wide, the dishes were exquisite. As the portions were so generous we did take the rest home.

This is one of the good ones. Food was great, service was well done, and the decor has a nice feel to it. If you need a break from seafood, this is the place to go.

Food at this restaurant does not even come close to a restaurant quality. Appetizers were okay. Raw spices in the entree made our food taste bitter. Bread was way too thick than what you normally would eat. Bad experience overall.
