We ordered lamb tikka masala, lamb tandoori, and butter chicken. I thought the lamb tandoori was a bit sour. I loved the garlic naan. It's good and big. Next time, I would just order the lamb tikka masala and naan.

With two busy one-way streets running through downtown Olympia, you might miss this unless you're looking for it or you're walking. It's just a few blocks from Percival Landing waterfront park, so if you're coming by boat or spending time at the park, it's a...More

The food was good, but when you've had the best, nothing quite makes you as happy! The rice was pretty bland, but the sauce from the Butter Chicken made it enjoyable. We've had better samosas and onion bhaji, but their onion kulcha was outstanding. All...More

I have been coming to the lunch buffet for years, and I have never had any food there that I did not find excellent. The variety is also wonderful, offering vegan and vegetarian options as well as those containing meat. The buffet also offers naan...More

Owner extremely friendly, food was hot and cooked to perfection. So many times a buffet will provide food that lacks taste, is overcooked, and poor choice selection. Not so at Great Indian Cuisine. The food tastes like it was cooked just for you, tasty, and...More

We tend to stop for lunch here whenever we are in Olympia, since an Indian buffet is a tasty, quick and healthy lunch. Cheap, too. While this restaurant does not reach the culinary heights of Seattle's buffets, it is a good place for vegetarians and...More

Good TA reviews led us to some great Indian comfort food for dinner. The parking lot adjacent requires some sort of permit until after 5pm when it is free. Highly recommend the Paneer Pasanda, a new dish for us that we thoroughly enjoyed. The menu...More
