Pulling into a parking lot shared with other restaurants, wasn't sure what to expect. It didn't look like much. However, food was great.

Service was great. Friendly staff. Seems very authentic. Naan was excellent. Had the Tofu Exotic Curry. Was very good. The facade and location shall not fool you of the authentic taste. The restroom needs help so be prepared.

It doesn't look like much, and in all honesty I prefer to take out... but the fact that it's people from Indian origins are eating there at all times kind of tells you that this is good Indian food! And it is delicious! At lunch...More

We visited here for Saturday lunch. Here has different kinds of curry and Indian dessert. We loved freshly baked naan. Every food is so good and tasty. The price is also favorable.

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in Coralville/Iowa City area and maybe the US. All the dishes are fresh and delicious, and most importantly made with loving care according to the individual diner's needs and tastes. Recommend most highly.

I'm not sure that I understand the lukewarm reviews of Exotic India. I think it is the best Indian food in the area. Look for it by the Walgreens on the Coralville Strip. The buffet is good but I really love the Biryani.

Pass on this place if you have ever eaten "quality" Indian food. This place is "Americanized" pseudo-Indian fare. The dishes are blah, the service is stoic, and the atmosphere is quaint. I won't be back.

For a small restaurant with a limited menu and selections, this is excellent. Service is good and people are friendly. Lots of Indians eat there which is always a good sign.
