They have an awesome lunch buffet! It's cheap and there's always a good selection of food available. I prefer the butter chicken and the tikka masala. The rice is good. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. Not much more you can ask for.

We were directed to this restaurant by the staff at the hotel at which we were staying. The restaurant was a three minute walk away and is located in a nearby strip mall. We were met by a young waitress and taken to a table. We ordered two different curries, nam bread, rice, chutney and papadum. We asked for spicy... More

I like the food a lot. Ordered Paneer Butter Masala, Malai Kofta and Mix daal, Both curries were very authentic, daal was not so good. Also they served it quickly and hot so overall good experience.

Had to be in Lakewood and found this little gem. It had been a few years for Me and good Indian food. This was a long deserved find. I remember the rice being stickier and the naan being more plentiful ,but this was still a nice treat.

We got spicy lentil stew and a vegetable curry late at night as we checked in. Fantastic! Super convenient location. Will surely patronize again.

After many times of passing this hidden restaurant in Lakewood we finally decided to give it a try. We were craving something different but weren't sure about Indian food since neither of us were familiar with it. What a great surprise we stumbled upon. Many times when we try out restaurants claiming to serve authentic food from other regions of... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant since 2001. We just love the food. We are vegetarian and they have a great vegetarian selection as well as other non veg options. The food is delicious and served in generous portions. The family that owns this restaurant recognizes us and remembers our favorite order by heart (including no... More

We have eaten Indian food throughout the United States as well as in Australia and New Zealand, and Great India Cuisine (totally ironic name) is pretty much the worst we have ever had and a bad value at that. I asked what half a Tandoori chicken is, because there are so many variations of that dish from restaurant to restaurant.... More

Not the best we have ever had, but Great India is close and we get takeout every couple of months. Mom-Pop-Son operation....medium spicy is about right. We tried the very hottest one time and it was too spicy for us. Standard Indian fare. We think that the portions are pretty small for the price. But satisfies the need................
