I had visited India Palace once before, but only went to meet somebody and didn’t have an opportunity to try the food. I added it to my culinary bucket list. Years passed and I finally found myself in the area, hungry, and with a group of other hungry people who had never gone before.
The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was clean. Upon being seated, the waiter quickly realized we had never eaten there before and politely offered lots of advice to help us out.
We started out with their Assorted Hor D’ourves. Most of it was fried and delicious, but there weren’t any real standout flavors. They also brought out some Naan and three sauces when mixed together, thanks to the waiter’s recommendation, created a unique and delicious flavor.
I ordered the Lamb Bhuna, which arrived on its own plate with a separate plate of rice. I had expected there to be some heat to the dish, but it was surprisingly mild. The rice was cooked well with mild seasoning.
Overall, the food had good flavor. Although it is not the most memorable dish to have graced these lips, it was an experience all on its own. This was due, in part, to the excellent waitstaff and the company I was with.
