We enjoyed carry-out for six people recently, and the flavors were superb. Two of us like very spicy Indian food, and the other four people only like medium spice. Both options were perfect and flavorful. (If you like little heat,better mention that, though.) The six different dishes were all good, including the three vegetarian options.. We liked the ability to... More

Food: Not bad, but we ordered "medium" spice and it was very bland. Service: Terrible. The waitress was obviously new and poorly trained. She didn't know the drink or food menu. Poor follow-up and no service. I will give them another chance but this was a fail.

A hidden gem behind Taco John's and Walgreens in Coralville. Still the best Indian restaurant in town, with a wide variety of flavors and many choices. The lunch buffet now includes very tasty goat along with chicken, saag, veggies dishes, dals, soup and several salads and deserts. The chai comes with the meal in a self service container.

We will be back! Great little gem! Very small simple decor. A little bit worn. But so very relaxing and the food as great as you can find anywhere! They seem to have a good carry out business going as well.

The Malai Kofta is the best I've tasted in the midwest. Totally Delicious ! They have it on the buffet on Fridays and I think Wednesdays also.

Went there and wanted the buffet - but it was almost empty even though there were a lot of people "waiting" for more food to be put out - not a lot of selection - wasn't worth what we paid for - staff wasn't too friendly. We really enjoy Indian food and we were very disappointed.

Had a great meal tonight from Exotic India. Veg Biryani and Chicken Karahi was fantastic. Was also great portion and will serve me a couple lunches this week.

Pulling into a parking lot shared with other restaurants, wasn't sure what to expect. It didn't look like much. However, food was great.

Service was great. Friendly staff. Seems very authentic. Naan was excellent. Had the Tofu Exotic Curry. Was very good. The facade and location shall not fool you of the authentic taste. The restroom needs help so be prepared.
