Indian food is one of my favorite cuisines. So much so that I even know how to make many Indian dishes at home. However, this place was an epic disappointment. I had the buffet which included chicken tikka masala, saag paneer, and naan among many other delicious-looking dishes. However, the saag paneer had almost no flavor and the chicken tikka... More

We all went for an early dinner only to find the Star of India did not open until 5:30PM for dinner. Although four of us , plus a baby and another couple were standing outside the door they did not open until 5:30PM, come-on guys a few minutes early would not hurt. The buffet seems to be the same as... More

My husband and I stopped by for dinner after I had some minor surgery. We had to wait for a while for them to open for dinner, but it was well worth the wait! My favorite dish is the samosas (I would eat here just for them!) that I dip in a green curry! The lamb meatballs and tandoori are... More

Star of India has been a go-to for my family since the kids were teenagers. The family run restaurant has a large variety of Indian cuisine and the buffet is fresh and varied. Although not a fan of buffets generally, this one shines. Sweet and attentive wait staff.

Can be anything but Indian taste. The food is tasteless and full of cream - not suited for Indian taste at all. Otherwise, the owner and the people are nice and friendly here - no complains. If they change their style of cooking, they can be a great place.

This is our all time favorite Indian restaurant. You can order from the menu or choose the buffet. We always get the buffet, there's a good variety and we always leave stuffed.

Awesome tasting fresh food. This was my second time eating there. It is authentic Indian food. Great flavors and variety of Northern Indian entrees. I liked the Kashmiri Nan with nuts and stuffing. It was very tender to chew.

All the dishes are just so delicious and worthy of tasting in their buffets. I think they do both, lunch and dinner buffets which is very good for people like me who like going to buffets in the night time with my family. Also, the restaurant staff is really nice and courteous, they greet and serve you with so much... More

There's a wide selection of Indian fare, mostly northern Indian and vegetarian with a couple of southern Indian dishes. Spinach, chickpeas, raiti, and naan were excellent. Rice pudding was yummy too. Good place to get a nice Indian fix.
