O.K., I love Indian food...and I've eaten this food in many places...but Albuquerque's India Palace just isn't all that great to me. The food was mediocre....but acceptable....and did fix my craving for Indian food...but the service was atrocious. We knew we would be getting there right before closing so we called first and were encouraged to come right on, that it would be just fine. We arrived about 15 minutes before their closing hour for their lunch. buffet...and were made to feel teribly unwelcome. The waiters glared at us....we were reminded that it was close to closing...we received no help and had to seat ourselves. The buffet started being removed before we got our food...no one came over to say to us, "We are going to remove the food. Would you like to go back now for anything you want more of?" We just looked up and there the food went...going, going, gone! No one ever came over to ask us if we needed anythingk, to refill our water, etc. It was only too clear that they wanted us OUT of there. I realize that it was our fault coming in so late----but we DID call first....so there is on excuse for such poor service and such an ugly attitude. I would never eat there again...even if I were dying for Indian food! Albuquerque must have other Indian restaurants, I would think.
