Overall a very good visit. Comfortable atmosphere with sedated Indian background music. Quick seating and initially very quick service. The chicken makani was okay but the lamb was excellent. Rice was perfectly prepared but the nan was a tiny bit thin for my liking. Great...More

Great meal. Conveniently located across street from our hotel. Had to convince my boss to eat here because he is a steak/potatoes guy. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was plentiful and tasteful. FYI the samosa was more spicy than what I'm used to, but...More

I love Indian food. I’ve eaten at all the major Indian food restaurants in the area. Of course, Royal Taj is the best in town. I also prefer Chutney, which is practically right next-door. Service wasn’t the most friendly, and was kind of slow. Food...More

Too many non-descript Indian restaurants populate nondescript suburban strip malls, but House of India is NOT one of them. Although the location may be non-descript, the food is very, very good. The dining room is pleasant, if standard issue. The service is friendly and competent....More

This is the only place we go to for Indian buffet. They have the best lunch buffet not only in Howard County but I think in MD. And it's cheap, too, for the quality of food.

OK, it's a hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall. Service can be a bit "iffy". But there is no denying that the chef knows what he is doing. I have tried just about everything on the menu, but I always return to any of their...More

Went there for dinner and had the dinner for 2. Everything was amazing. Started with the lentil soup, excellent. Moved onto the Chicken Tikka and Sheek Kabab, both very tasty. Then we had the Vegetable Korma and Chicken curry. Everything was excellent. It was very...More
