I went here with my daughter and her friend who love Indian food. They have gone to many but say this is the best. I am gluten free, and although they do not have a GF menu, they were happy to help. I had the coconut curry with chicken, it was really delicious. They had the buffet, which from looking... More

We like hot chili spice in our curries. You had better like it also. Many India cuisine choices in Redmond WA which is trending toward a wonderful "little India." Kaniska is among the tops.

We moved to the eastside about 6 months ago and were missing our regular Indian restaurants in Seattle. I'm so happy that we found Kanishka! The food is delicious, the staff is very friendly. We've been there 3 times in the last month and haven't been disappointed.

The staff is terrific and friendly. The buffet is wonderful and if you are Gluten Free you have many choices. I would have given this restaurant a five and many days it is, but some dishes are significantly different week to week. The bathrooms need a little sprucing up, but everything else runs beautifully. Love this place.

When my parents were visiting from India, we would go to Kanishka for lunch buffet almost three times a week. Their dish called 'Chicken 65' is very very tasty.

I'm a local and have been to kanishka several times. Generally the food is good, service is medium and the people who fill your water are my favorite, always very nice. Unfortunately, we had such a bad experience there last weekend that I will never go back. We walked in right at 5 as the restaurant opened for dinner with... More

This restaurant has been around long time and you can tell (in a good way). The staff is polished and professional. Their lunch buffet is without a doubt the best. A very large selection. Meat and veggie items are available so whichever way you lean there are many choices for you I advise to get there early on the weekends... More

First time to Kanishka and it won't be our last. Excellent food, service was not amazing. However we were a large group dining on an extremely busy Saturday night. So many good dishes, too many to list!

We are always amazed at how consistently good the food at Kanishka is. We have come here several times and sampled across the menu (a la carte, we have yet to try the buffet) which in itself is quite extensive and have yet to be disappointed. The service is very hospitable and attentive.

Remarkable food! My wife and I are seasoned world travelers and have a particular fondness for Indian food -- which we've eaten all over the world. Candidly, Kanishka serves some of the finest Indian dishes we've enjoyed in this country. The extensive menu covers the cuisine from all across India. The nan bread is made fresh by hand in their...
