This is the only place we go to for Indian buffet. They have the best lunch buffet not only in Howard County but I think in MD. And it's cheap, too, for the quality of food.

OK, it's a hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall. Service can be a bit "iffy". But there is no denying that the chef knows what he is doing. I have tried just about everything on the menu, but I always return to any of their sauced dishes served in a heated bowl with jasmine rice - yummy! Large range of... More

Went there for dinner and had the dinner for 2. Everything was amazing. Started with the lentil soup, excellent. Moved onto the Chicken Tikka and Sheek Kabab, both very tasty. Then we had the Vegetable Korma and Chicken curry. Everything was excellent. It was very hard to pick a favorite. We ran out of the basmati rice that came with... More

My husband and his coworkers come here every time they are in town for business. This time I came along on the trip. The food was wonderful. There isn't a bad dish. My husband prefers the Lamb Shahi Korma. It is good. I had the Chicken Tikka Masala. It was so delicious. The staff was very attentive and kept our... More

A very warm and quiet atmosphere welcomes you to the restaurant. The waitstaff are friendly and efficient; most of the service is done on carts. The chicken tikka masala is great, so it the chicken tandoori. Would go back anytime!

This was my first visit to the House of India restaurant. I will be going back. The great thing about Indian cuisine is that there are so many different regions. The House of India seems to focus on some regions that the other Indian restaurants do not. The flavors are just a little bit different, the spices are more attuned... More

We visited House of India on Valentines Day 2016 - the restaurant was busy and based on the other reviews, we had very high expectations. We frequent really good Indian restaurants, like Chutney or Ananda in the area, and was hoping for a similar or better experience. Unfortunately, it wasn't even close. Staring with the very slow and inattentive service... More

Went with another couple and we don't usually eat at Indian restaurants. The lentil bread on the table was good. We ordered samosas which were very tasty. The meat one we liked better than the veggie one. The veggie one was a bit spicy but still good. The guys got lamb dishes and they were both good. I had shrimp... More

Have taken takeout at this restaurant multiple times and everything is delicious. Tandoori chicken is to perfection. I really like their Palak Paneer. Great service also.
