Thought we were ordering Indian food but they brought out "fusion" Thai-Indian. It was edible but we really wanted Indian food. The owner was very nice.

Was hoping to like this place and we just couldn't. Didn't look very clean and the food was not impressive at all.

Eating solo at Emperor of India makes one feel no longer alone. The hospitality and food are great! I love the Chai and the fish curry with paneer and vegetables over rice. The sauce is excellent and I have plenty for lunch. Thanks again.
