Nice place for dinner if you want to avoid the bars. Food was good as was the service. My friend is vegetarian and there was a nice selection of items to choose from. We ordered a variety of dishes and enjoyed all of it.

We were in town for parents' weekend at OU, so the waits everywhere were long. I had a hunch Star of India wouldn't be busy, because it's about 1/4-mile away from downtown. We decided to walk there and check it out for dinner on Saturday...More
