My 2 daughters and I went to this place on 12/8/17 for dinner. What a mistake! I ordered special biryani. It was some lump of colored rice with a few pieces of tasteless meat pieces. To call it biryani is an insult to Indian cuisine....More

I've been traveling to Pittsburg recently and People's is my go-to place for delicious Indian food. I usually use Eat Street to order and my food has been ready on time and accurate. I've not eaten in the restaurant itself but it looks inviting.

My first time at People's was not a good experience, but over the weekend I returned and I am glad I did. Everything was delicious. The buffet had a great variety of dishes and were flavorful.

The wonderful aroma of this restaurant could be detected almost a half a block away and I immediately started drooling. Indian is one of my favorite cuisines and this place was exceptional. Staff was friendly and courteous and food was served up with minimal delay....More

This restaurant is in an underwhelming neighborhood, but if you happen to be near, this is a great place for a meal. The food was very good, better than I have had at more expensive Indian restaurants, with generous portions. The service was excellent.

We are life time Indian food fans, having lived several years in India. The cuisine at People's is very authentic and well seasoned. Service was polite and efficient. You have to bring your own alcohol. They can improve their breads. They were a bit soft...More

Just moved to Bloomfield 2 weeks ago and have been here three times for the lunch buffet. 8 bucks and some change. All you can eat. The curry chicken is great. Love the naan. Everything is fresh. Love the masala chai too.

People's is delicious! It is a small hidden gem on Penn Ave and I recommend checking it out. The food and service are consistently good (although, make sure to eat majority of your entree or they'll become overly concerned you didn't like it). The atmosphere...More

We just had the buffet. The choices were limited and the spicing unremarkable. The only meat dishes were all chicken. Even the gulab jamon was boring.

Buffet at lunch and brunch. Quiet dinner experience. Fresh, tasty food. Personable servers. Late night discount. In the heart of the Penn Avenue Arts District. Checkout First Fridays - Unblurred, including the Night Market. Then enjoy dinner at People's.
