What's red and red and red all over? The food at India Palace ofcourse.
I visited here with family which was visiting from England and wanted to have some good Indian/Pakistani food. Against my better judgment, I was forced to take them there. Perhaps it's those metal pachyderms standing outside that should have been the warning sign--or the copper crockery which should have given away that this is a trap for the odd tourist, the expats working in the city who have little or no knowledge of what good north indian/pakistani food is.
Let me tell you what it isnt!
The food here in unnatural. Go here and splurge on all sorts of meats and vegetables imbued with the sickliest red food colouring in the world. After a meal here, you will be seieng cochineal for a very long time. There is no flavour, no spice and no soul in this place.
This place is not at the bottom of the barrel. This place is not on the other side of the bottom of the barrel. This place is not in the barrel. This place does not deserve to be in the same sentence as a barrel.

Very poor experience. Absolutely lousy service - food took more than an hour and several remiders to arrive. When it arrived, it was cold and undercooked. When I pointed that a dish was (visibly) undercooked, the staff suggested that this was the way its cooked which is all rubbish since I have had that dish many times previously (even at the same restaurant chain) and am well aware of how it should be. Staff was not at all cheerful and constantly trying to ignore custiomers. Seems like they are not equipped to handle the weekend crowd but want to maximise profits by not turning back customers. However, in the process they dont care about what they serve and negative word of mouth publicity they get.

Food s good and options plenty. But very very slow and goofy service. Toilet hygiene requires more attention.
