My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Palawan. We enjoyed the buffet. The food is not what we normally eat, but it was good. The wait staff was helpful, but since it was a buffet, there was not much that they did. The yogurt drink the Strawberry and the mango was delicious.

Went with some friends, while the food was OK without being outstanding (they have far too many dishes on their menu), the service was poor. We had to repeatedly ask for one of our starters which they tried to bring at the same time as the entrees. I would not particularly recommend it while it was not bad.

Had their buffet, the food was slightly better than the average. The spread was reasonable, the dessert was really good. The service for nan etc was good. Place was clean. You can try the place.

This is a decent restaurant. Buffet provides typical Indian dishes, very basic, with few appetizers. Bread is left on buffet and not as yummy as restaurants where it is brought hot and soft to your table. 2 choices of Indian dessert. No fruit.

I walked here from the Holiday Inn across the street, which was a bit treacherous due to the snow and ice. The lunch buffet was great with various tasty options, and a large inviting dining room. I'll definitely return when I'm in the area again.

This place has consistent good food. Their lunch buffet is good but like the menu selections better. Tandoori chicken and Ghost Vindaloo off the menu are excellent and better than buffet version. Aloo Gobi Palak is outstanding. This has become our go to Indo / Pak place in Morris county.

For 12 dollars I guess its ok, but the food isn't anything special. The place is big and clean, and you can eat as much as you want since its a buffet but I wouldnt go back. I prefer my indian food to be was tastier.

I was invited by a friend of my wife's for a New Years Party and I live all the way in Queens, NY. It was worth the 1 hour drive from home to Parsipanny, NJ.
