First off, India Palace used to be my favorite Indian food in the DC area - operative words are 'used to be.' We had a really bad experience last night. The waiter, Robin, wouldn't stop hitting on me. I told him I was married and he said 'so what.' I gave him no indication I was willing to accept his... More

Have been going here for years, and they do a very good job with take-out, buffet, and dine-in. Very occasionally, we will notice an off-day where things are a little disappointing. However, this is solid comfort food (especially the Chicken Tikka Masala) 99% of the time. They have quite a few good vegetarian options as well.

Always enjoy eating there buffet because of a good variety. Great if you are vegetarian. Usually also serve chicken and goat. Make sure you take from the bottom of the tray to get hot item.
