The place is a bit dated and very dark, but we've been ordering takeout for years, and we love the food. The owners are friendly and very accomodating. Try the Chicken Makhani--yummy! We recently moved away from the area, and have not been able to find Indian that we like as much.
Best Indian food in the Kenilworth area by far...unless you go into Edison. Great atmosphere, great food, great service..nothing negative here at all except parking, which is the town's fault. The Lamb Vindaloo is outstanding :-)
Let me see where should I start.
The overpowering stale curry smell that hits your clothes or the uncleaned cobwebs in the filligree decor.
They need to clean this place up if not remodel.. There are so many new Indian restaurants with better food. Plus the place is overpriced relative to the way this place is maintained.
I got mine to go. By the time I got to my hotel, I had to pour 3 tablespoons of grease off my main dish. And by the taste of things, that was just the tip of the iceberg. The rice and bread were similarly greasy, and the paratha tasted pretty much like cardboard. I'd also advise to stay away from the mint chutney, whose color has clearly been enhanced with green food coloring.
On the plus side, the saag paneer was well spiced and flavorful.
Very nice place! Very good food! Owner unusually nice! Too bad about the person who wrote a one-star review. Sure, if you want a luxury restaurant with impeccable decor, this is not it. But the writer is quite unfair about food and prices. Prices are perfectly in line with other moderately priced Indian restaurants in NJ and/or NYC. And as to the food, I've been to many, many Indian restaurants over a period of about 30 years and would give Star of India an 8.5 (maybe even a 9) out of 10, based on all I've eaten at.
