India Palace, St. Louis, Missouri

Perched on the 11th floor of a building located right next to St. Louis Lambert International airport, it offers a great panoramic view with flights criss-crossing your field of vision. The interior is also tastefully done.

The food there is okay. Not great, not bad either. But if are going for a lunch buffet, don't expect a wide variety of dishes to choose from.

Chutney, Reno, NV

This place is by far the best Indian Restaurant I have been to so far in the US. Taste of the food they serve is awesome!! You can order food with custom spice levels. The interior is decent and pleasant. But keep in mind that the portions they serve is really huge. So think before you order.

Many a times I have seen non-Indians trying out Indian food at really bad Indian restaurants and still finding food good. Reason is simple, they cannot differentiate between good and bad Indian food. All I can say is they read reviews online and then try out a new place. For people new to Indian cuisine, I would say that the food at Chutney could be used as a benchmark.

India Garden, Reno, Nevada

Located at 1565 S Virginia St, Reno, it's a much better place than "Taste of India". The food is Punjabi style. Lots of onion, garlic, garam masala. It's good.

I still wonder why many of the Indian restaurants in the US are untastefully decorated. This is one of them. But the food is delicious !!

Taste of India, Reno, Nevada

Located at E Moana Ln in Reno, it's most shittiest place you can ever be. Like all other Indian restaurants in the US, it boasts of authetic Indian Cuisine. Authentic, my foot!!

The place looks cheap, the waiters are shabbily dressed, the food is stale.

I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone.

Vasantha Bhavan, Hicksville, NY.

It belongs to the chain of restaurants in Chennai. The cuisine is South-Indian. It's got nice ambience compared to House of Dosas. The latter looks more of a fast food joint.

I found some dishes good and some bad. The sambhar tasted good. But all the chutneys they served tasted really funny. Correct, they did taste funny. They were more like Tabasco hot sauce and no way near what you would get to taste their hotels in Chennai. Bhagara bath was the highlight.

The food is mediocre, and at the same time expensive. Given a choice I would go to House of Dosas.

Masala Wok, Hicksville, NY.

They serve Chinese, Indian and Thai. I was first taken there with a promise of mouth-watering Indian-Chinese food. And that was my last visit. A small cramped-up place with good ambience and really bad food.Though I didnt want to judge by tasting just a couple of dishes, I didnt wanna take the risk again. Guess that sums it all.

Royal Tangra Masala, Long Island, NY.

Located at 2207 Hillside Ave in New Hyde Park, NY, this Indian-Chinese restaurant is slowly getting to become one of my favorites. Hybrid cuisines always have something exciting to offer and Indian-Chinese is my top pick of them. A lot btter than Masala Wok, the food is spicy and genuinely Indian-Chinese in taste. I start salivating the moment I think of their chicken hot & sour soup and Manchurian dishes.

The place is inexpensive and simply irrestible!!
