Went there for dinner while on a visit to Santa Fe. The place is actually at the far end of a parking lot just a few blocks from the plaza. We had several dishes, including chicken tikka masala and gobhi aloo. We ordered all items...More

The first time we went a couple of years ago, the lunch buffet was decent, both in price and quality of food. This last time was not good. The food was decidedly lackluster and the price was outrageous considering the food quality. To top it...More

The food was average at best, and it was difficult to distinguish a difference in flavors among the different dishes in the buffet. The chicken in the chicken curry dish was tough, still contained joints and gristle and was off-putting. Not worth the $12 price.

This is a great lunch for a reasonable price -- good Indian food, attentive staff, as quick or as slow as you choose.

India Palace located in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. Is the oldest Indian restaurant in New Mexico, serving Santa Fe since 1990. In 1997, India Palace hired a new chef by the name of Billu to be their head chef. In 1998 he left the restaurant. In the summer of 2013, Billu bought the restaurant and restored the taste and quality of the 1990's. India Palace now has the authentic taste that comes with skilled chefs from India. All spices are imported from India to give you that authentic Indian taste. Come try our food, we will be around for years to come.
