India Palace is a family owned and run restaurant. I have watched the current owner grow up and start a family of his own. We have been eating here for 20 years. In that time the owners have changed (passed from one family member to another) but the food has remained superb. They get crowded on the weekends and the... More

Your kind words and thorough review mean the world to us, thank you. It's fantastic to see that we've had your support for so long, and we cannot thank you enough for that. Our menu will always be as authentic as it gets, and knowing that you love our naan, chicken tikka masala, lamb vindaloo, and much more is so... More

The food is great. Spicy without overwhelming. We eat here or call for delivery several times a month. We love the food but think the service could be better.

We come for lunch buffer for years, priced from $9 each long ago to $11 today. They serve really great food with good selections and flavors: lamb curry was heavenly, grilled tandoori chicken legs and thighs were very juicy, chicken curry and spinach curry were delicious, plus lots of other vegetarian dishes and salads to fill your plate and tummy!...

They serve a wonderful all-you-can-eat lunch buffet that we love. They have a wide selection of meats and vegetarian choices. The flavor is robust but sometimes a bit too salty. The dal is perfect on a cold day and the naan is the perfect texture. My favorites are the Palak Paneer and lamb curry. We always leave happy and full.... More

Okay, I'm being a little silly, but really, the food was wonderful. I had just flown into OAK from a not-so-pleasure trip, my wife picked me up and we came to India Palace because Alameda is so convenient to OAK. Walked into the quiet peaceful environment and inhaled the rich aromas and felt immediately at ease. The menu is extensive,... More

We came to this restaurant based on other trip advisor reviews and now I need to write a review as well for the terrific service we received. We arrived at the restaurant at 4:30 pm and they open at 5 pm. We thought would have to wait outside in the heat for another 30 min. Vicky somehow saw us and... More

Had the food here when traveling through. Service was decent and the food was really good. It was not super busy, which surprises me considering the quality of the food.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here; everything was very fresh. We got here 45 minutes before closing and we tried everything and we thought we were going to get dried up leftovers but we were very wrong. This place is amazing and will be returning soon
