Good Indian food,friendly staff and reasonable prices. Nice to be able to see the chef at work through a glass pane.

Left India Palace about half an hour ago and left my bathroom after being violently ill about 15 minutes ago. I do feel a bit bad for leaving a one blob review, as the staff were friendly (one of the owners had a right good chat with a couple nearby about a place they had a mutual experience of) and...

I'd rate this "terrible"except for two things: First, the man there was courteous and pleasant. Second, the gulab jamun and kheer were good. So if you want only dessert, this place is fine. The dinner buffet variety was limited. Food varied between blah, meh, and almost inedible. I'd say "you get what yo pay for" but this wasn't worth even... More

Visiting the city for the first time, we were turned on to India Palace by locals. Wanting authentic Indian food at reasonable prices in a casual setting, this was the perfect choice. We all had the buffet which had plenty of choices including our favorite, chicken tikka masala. Everything was fresh and tasty and we were pleased with the steady... More

Nice selection on the buffet with good food quality. Items were replenished frequently, keeping everything hot and fresh. Friendly staff and good service. Definitely would recommend.

The restaurant is in the same building complex as a Travel Lodge and is a little dated. The waiter was attentive and kept our drinks filled, which was a good thing because the food took a long time to arrive. But, when it arrive, it was excellent! The naan was especially well made, and complimented the dishes perfectly.

We were on Fillmore and looking for a place for lunch when we stumbled upon this place. Remarkable lunch buffet. Curry dishes were fantastic. Garlic naan was so good we ordered a second basket. Lunch for 2 was not much more than a fast food joint and 100 times better.

We thought the dishes were great and very reasonably priced. Two of us had the buffet and one ordered from the menu. Service was fine, and we really enjoyed it. Not the fanciest place, but if you're after very good authentic Indian, this is a solid choice.

Shady place, looks untidy. We went for lunch buffet, the spread was alright nothing great. We had to literally search for Chicken and mutton pieces in chicken tikka masala and goat curry :) although it's called India palace and they have Nepal and Uk flag. Very ordinary food not worth spending even 10 bucks. The chicken tandoori and saag was... More

While staying in San Francisco I ordered food from the Indian Palace through the Seamless web site. After an hour my food was delivered and the driver left. However when I opened the bag it was the wrong food. I phoned Indian Palace who could not find my order by looking for my name, address or phone number and after... More
