I love Indian food. I just happened to stop by while out shopping. I had the buffet meal for lunch. The food was very good. The bread was brought out hot and fresh. I asked the owner to come talk to me as I was the only first guest at the time. We talked for a while and he was... More

A friend and I were coming home from a meeting and decided to give Star of India a visit. He had been wanting to try their buffet for a while and the timing was right. We both had the buffet and where quite happy. The meal was tasty and the staff took time to talk to us and explain what... More

Located downtown Ferndale, Star of India offers a great selection of Indian meals at a very reasonable price. The staff is courteous and helpful.

All of us ordered mild or no spice and everything was far too hot, even for this spice lover. We had to order raita to tame the heat. No offer of remaking, discounting or removing them from the bill was made. Though they did tell us they didn't charge for the raita when we got the bill. Not proactive about... More

We had just walked out of Como's after waiting over an hour for a pizza and my Mother and I were both hungry and cranky. It was 2:05pm and I was looking for options when I noticed the 'lunch buffet' sign that ended at 2:30pm. I assumed they wouldn't be happy to see late comers but the waiter could not... More

Stopped in with a large group late Saturday night, first time visit. The server was able to answer all our questions about the menu. Dinner was served quickly, hot and tasty. I had a dish with lamb, green peppers, onion & ginger. It was very good along with the plates of white rice. We all ordered different variations of bread... More

I have been coming to Star Of India for years. They have great service and are so sweet. The food is what brings me back. I love the butter chicken, shrimp paneer, cabbage baji, garlic naan, cheese naan and their fried mixed appetizers. Keep up the good work!

This place has changed management. Unfortunately, the food has gone downhill. It seems bland and almost tasteless. I have tried it twice since the change. Both bad experiences. The chicken tikka masala sauce used to be delicious...now watery and dull. That's probably the last time for me and I'm sad, because it was one of my go-to to-go places.

Okay, this has got to be the WORST Indian dining experience I have ever had. The food was oily and very bland. BLAND. For Indian food? Inexcusable. Even the papadum was flavorless. Even the RICE did not taste like authentic Basmati rice but was also bland. The waiter was very nice. My husband and I were both very disappointed.

Even though this was my first experience with Indian cuisine we really enjoyed Star of India tonight. Service was very pleasant, pricing is good and portions generous. I found the food was very good and flavorful. Mulligatawny soup was hearty and tons of flavor, Samosa was awesome, Naan bread was very tastey as well. Our main dishes were both great... More
