It is reassuring to walk into an Indian restaurant populated by Indian diners. It is the real deal. You can choose your degree of spiciness. The wait staff is helpful and friendly although some of the discussions are lost in translation. Good food at good prices

Food was ordered to our Hotel Room and arrived within a reasonable time. Food was very good and was packed very well and portion size was very good. The only suggestion I have is that when given an opinion, to accept it graciously.

My husband and I absolutely love Star of India . Every time we go it's consistently great food although sometimes service does lack we let it go because the food is worth it. Rogan josh is my husbands favorite and mine is chicken tikka masala , with of course the garlic naan bread!

If you're looking for a "go to" Indian restaurant with dishes that explode with flavor, Star of India delivers. The interior décor is very traditional and it is on the darker side. You'll start with some complimentary flavorful sauces and a thin cracker. We began out meal with the Mulligatawny soup. While tasty, it was lightly seasoned and served in... More

We came here alot during the late 90s and early 2000s. The food was always good and the ambiance was great. Just went there again tonight and the food was as good as we remembered. We had the chicken Tika, Sag Paneer, and that eggplant dish we can never pronounce. It was all good, they even remembered our names from... More

We had a group of 6 and ordered 11 different dishes ( we took so much home) because we had to try "everything". Each entry was perfectly spiced to the degree we had asked for and perfectly cooked. The chicken was tender ( not dried out like I have had elsewhere) and the sauces were rich and homemade. The lighting... More

My family has been coming here for over 26 years . Every time we come to visit our family in Staten Island ,we make sure to keep a night open for Star Of India!! We have never been disappointed with the food or service. It's a family run business... Love them!!!

The appetizer were tasty, Mango Lassi was delicioust, and naans were freshly baked. They did give some samosas on the house which was a good gesture, but the chicken biryani was horrible...could not handle more than 2 spoons, and rest of the meal was very avg, and price was more on the higher side. I had to use the flashlight... More
