A very good kitchen, comprehensive menu (for northern Indian/Punjabi food), nice variety of drinks and beverages. Service is outstanding. One of our favorite Indian restaurants - worth the drive (about 20 miles from home) and worthy of extended family and out-of-town guests.

Very good selection of food in a very nice atmosphere. Great chicken curry's and wonderful presentation. I always have gotten a much appreciated visit from the manager or owner at the end of the meal.

Great place for lunch. Good service and a nice atmosphere. Haven't ever done dinner here though. I have a business colleague who when he visits, we have to eat here :)

This family owned restaurant consistently provides great food and atmosphere. When hunger strikes the only question is what to order. Tandoori, lamb that is exceptional. I could go for desert first. Yum!

Don't get me wrong... I like the Pacific Northwest in general, but this restaurant is the best Indian food I've ever eaten and it makes the flight from Houston totally worth it! I've eaten it for many years and nothing comes close. The service is outstanding as well. It's located right next to the Marriott Courtyard which is where I... More

We waited much too long to check out this great restaurant in Federal Way. The variety of items on their buffet line is simply amazing and everything was delicious! The staff are very friendly and attentive. Be sure too try the mango smoothie and the mango mousse. Perfection! I know we will return often to the East India Grill.

Enjoyed the buffet with delicious Naan, muttom, chiken masala etc. Had my favourite "chilli chutney" as well. Wonderful staff. They had good desserts and fresh juice options as well. Good for takeaways too.

We have tried many Indian lunch buffets and this one is one of our favorites, especially since we live about 10 minutes away. Our younger son doesn't like spicy food so he usually cannot handle much Indian food. Even when they say it is mild, it is usually too spicy for him. This buffet is the mildest Indian food around...

The selection was perfect and the layers of flavor wonderful. If you like medium heat for spiciness, choose the level 2. We took the 3 and it was pretty toasty. Service and family pride are evident.
