Best place to kiss a beautiful woman in yuba city. I met a wonderful lady there and had a great meal. Try the lamb!

I was pleasantly surprised when I was served Samosas, Punjabi Chole and Chicken Saag dishes. They had the authentic taste. Plus, the food was delicious. The location in a strip mall or office like location. The décor is plain inside with spartan furniture similar to...many small time restaurants. The restaurant was busy when i arrived and order takes some time to prepare. the restaurant also has sweets to purchase. Service was good and attentive.More

The Star of India was a short drive from my hotel. My wife and I love Indian food so whenever I travel I alway try and go to the local Indian restaurant. I went to the restaurant after 7pm and I was the only guest...there so I was worried that it might not be that good. There were several people who came in for take-out orders. I ordered the Gobhi Pakora as an appetizer, the Chicken Biryani as my entree and an order of Butter Naan because I love naan! I got a large plate of Gobhi Pakora, a large portion of Chicken Biryani served with a side of white rice and several huge naan breads! All of my food was top quality! The staff was professional, courteous and friendly! As I ate the restaurant filled up with people and more and more take-out orders were being fulfilled. So that has to tell you it’s good! If I’m ever back in town I will not hesitate visiting The Star of India Restaurant in Yuba City!More

We stopped after a splendid sunset at Grey Lodge. Hidden the street among other retail stores, the interior as simple and clean. The wonderful surprise was the Lamb Korma, best dish of those we tried. We would recommend for a casual, yet tasty meal.

Having been to most of the Indian restaurants in Yuba City, Star of India seems to be the most consistent; relatively fresh & typically spiced as one would expect from an Indian restaurant. After several visits, no disappointments and service, although dry, is attentive and...fast for those short lunch breaks. Basic restaurant in a very obscure business complex (by DMV), won’t wow you, but it’s relatively clean. It is very inexpensive, and buffet seems to be the way to go.More

We fairly regularly drive through Yuba City heading to the mountains. Star of India has become our “go to” spot to collect take away. Pleasant staff, low key decor with excellent and very tasty food - then there’s the added excitement of a very occasional...interesting twist to the Chai.More

We stumbled into this lovely little restaurant at lunch time. We really enjoyed their delicious (and reasonably-priced) Indian specialities buffet. I am not very knowledgeable about Indian cuisine. But, based on this visit, from now on I am going to make a beeline for butter...chicken and spicy cauliflower. These were wonderful! My dining partner enjoyed his biriyani and his garbanzo bean dishes. The best treat of all was the freshly – made naan. This was marvelous! We loaded up on pretty, tasty Indian desserts to take with us – – they have a very pretty selection to choose from. This is a lovely little restaurant with interesting food, lovingly prepared and generously served.More

Favorite Indian food restaurant. I go for the food... I'm not concerned about the ambience. My mission is to eat very good Indian food that is even reasonably priced. I am never let down👍🏻

We visited this recommended restaurant on a Sunday around 1:00 PM. The food at the buffet was good but the service could use some improving. There was one cordial but unfortunate fellow who was responsible for servicing all the tables while also taking care of...the line of patrons doing takeout at the counter. We were halfway through our meal before he was able to take our naan and drink order. Aside from this, the food was well prepared, the restaurant was comfortable and the parking plentiful.More

My wife and I just ate at Star of India for dinner after reading some good reviews on Trip Advisor. I had the spicy lamb curry and my wife had the medium butter chicken. We also got garlic naan. We both loved our food! The...spice was hot but not so hot that it hid the flavors. The flavors themselves were better than what I'm normally used to at other Indian restaurants! The naan texture was out of this world. Prefect mix crispiness in some places and softness in others. The food came out very fast with us getting our food in less than 10 minutes. The service was spectacular with an attentive wait staff. We'll definitely be going back!More

You have to be looking for this restaurant to find it, but it is worth it. I have eaten here 3 times for dinner and each time the food has been excellent. Service is consistently slow, but food is worth the wait.

I will be returning here. Met friends here for the buffet lunch. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The Saag Paneer was great as was the vegetable rice. They had quite a selection of bars, cookies, and cakes in the display case. While we were...there, a steady stream of customers arrived for take-out.More

If you like spicy from India then you will love eating here. We have eaten here a couple of times and the service is good and the food is good. But a bit spicy to our taste.

Selection was limited, but food was good. They provided a buffet style lunch, but also had the option to select off of a menu which I felt was a great idea. A bit on the high side for lunch, but not too bad. Waitress very...friending and willing to spend time explaining the dishes. Really nice touch.More
