Restaurant details
Reviewed January 27, 2018

I was in the area for work this past June, and this was one of the nearby restaurants recommended by our hotel. I've grown up in and lived in larger cities and have eaten at a lot of really good restaurants (and love Indian food) and this definitely compared to those. Some of my coworkers are Indian and they also said the food was very impressive and authentic. In fact, I loved it so much I went twice.

The owner is very friendly, and you get a lot of food for your meal. We were brought soup (two choices - there was a tangy tomato soup, and a flavorful/spicy lentil soup), appetizers (fresh garlic naan, some amazing samosas, tandoori chicken with a tangy spice crust and some amazing charred fish I've never had before that also had a spice crust. The second time we went the fish was replaced with a beef dish). The buffet had a great variety of curries, both with meat and vegetables, including a really tasty eggplant dish. And then, we got mango ice cream for dessert. We were all stuffed!

We just finished a delightful lunch. The food was really delicious, plus the folks who run it are really lovely. My son has nut allergies and they brought him a separate dessert so he wouldn't be left out. The children, who went in squawking that we were stopping for Indian food, left thanking us for taking them there and also said it was delicious. It's fairly easy off and on the highway, and they are located off the square to the left side of the bank.

Who would have thought that you could find authentic Indian cuisine in Marion Illinois, but you can. We went to India delight after finding it on trip advisor and enjoyed some of the best Indian food period. We were treated like friends by the owners even though it was our 1st time there. The owner/chef brought several special dishes to the table and we enjoyed each one. The service was exceptional. We look forward to going back.

Absolutely excellent food and beyond excellent service! A true gem in the heart of Marion! We are from the southern Illinois area, and this has been one of the best dining experiences we've had in a while. We will be telling our friends and coming back.
