Divine food, gorgeous atmosphere, gracious hosts. It was my birthday dinner, and they sent out a starter AND a dessert on the house! Wonderful in every way. It was our first visit, but we will certainly be back many more times!

Can't say enough good things about India House. Easily some of the best Indian I've ever had - the quality is comparable to Jackson Heights, Queens, and the owners are gracious and welcoming. On weekends the place gets stormed, and for good reason, so arrive early if you can. Certain dishes, like the cauliflower lollipops, are best enjoyed in situ, but takeout's a snap, too.

India House is a great place to find new and different variations on classic Indian dishes. They have a large, exciting menu with some really unique options that you wouldn't find at other places. If you want to stick to favorites, you can still get tandoori, jalfrezi, korma, masala, etc. But it never hurts to branch out a bit. It's a little pricy, but it has a nice atmosphere. I'd say it's good for a date, family outing, or reunion with friends.

The food and service was great. But I must point out... The way the owner family treats their employees is absolutely AWFUL. I have been to this restaurant a few times now, and both times I have heard the woman reprimanding her employees for things that seem very minor. She was literally yelling at them, scolding them and saying things to them that an employer should never say. it didn't even phase the poor girl working, she kept a smile on her face as if she deals with this every day. Next time you eat here, just listen for yourself. It's sad that such a highly praised local business treats their employees this way.

I eat the same thing every time I go here. I have eaten and done take out about 40 times in the last 10 years. I always get Balchao Chicken and Shrimp! It's spicy dark sauce. I love it! Highly recommend.

Being an Indian, India House brings true disgrace upon basic Indian values held not only towards the preparation of food but more importantly towards the people who have come as guests to eat your food. "Atithi devo bhava" translated to guest is god is the founding stone of Indian values. The family that runs this restaurant takes every step possible to devalue this foundational belief. Of the few times I have been there with my other south asians friends, all of us as a women of color, have felt dehumanized and humiliated. Treated as people who are assumed to have no money, the service offered to us by that family, especially the father, has been no less than hostile. I am a daughter of a renowned food critic in India, and I have been to numerous restaurants both abroad and in India, and I have never experienced such indignity anywhere. Being part of the service industry, their evident discrimination against South Asians is alarming. Suddenly exceptional rules come up for people belonging to our ethnicity such as a minimum of 10 dollars per head on the table. Never have I ever come across a restaurant with such a rule. So although my three friends ordered for over 30 dollars worth of food, the fact that one of my friends chose to order a coffee set the man off! when complained to, he decided to walk off. Having been born and brought up in India, the food there seems to earn its popularity simply out of the lack of other options. The food is packed with unneeded spices and cream, not even closely representing authentic Indian cuisine which is made with the right spices in the right amount, but more importantly made with love and respect. I hope this review finds its rightful place and that people and regular customers of this restaurant think twice before supporting this immensely degrading place that claims to represent the typical Indian household.

Nice decor and atmosphere. Food was good, but a little bland for Indian food.
