We love to eat lunch here for the buffet. All of the food is authentic and delicious. The service is always friendly and we never leave here hungry. We especially love the punjab and the samosas. The buffet is not real big but all of the food on it is delicious. The restaurant itself is small but clean.

Restaurant recommended by hotel but, while food was okay, the service was poor. Vegetable pakora was hot but not really tasty. Rogan josh meat was good and tender, spicy-ness was indeed hot, and rice plentiful, so overall good. Naan was good. Two servers but had hard time completing a request, even bringing the check.

We visited here for Saturday lunch. Here has different kinds of curry and Indian dessert. We loved freshly baked naan. Every food is so good and tasty. The price is also favorable.

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in Coralville/Iowa City area and maybe the US. All the dishes are fresh and delicious, and most importantly made with loving care according to the individual diner's needs and tastes. Recommend most highly.

I'm not sure that I understand the lukewarm reviews of Exotic India. I think it is the best Indian food in the area. Look for it by the Walgreens on the Coralville Strip. The buffet is good but I really love the Biryani.

Pass on this place if you have ever eaten "quality" Indian food. This place is "Americanized" pseudo-Indian fare. The dishes are blah, the service is stoic, and the atmosphere is quaint. I won't be back.

For a small restaurant with a limited menu and selections, this is excellent. Service is good and people are friendly. Lots of Indians eat there which is always a good sign.

This Indian restaurant is just average. Having been to many indian restaurants in the US and Canada, my experience here was ordinary. The buffet provides some good options and the service is okay. They don't seem to care too much about hospitality. Having said that, if you are craving indian food, this is the superior place in town. Otherwise, Cedar... More

Hidden gem! Behind taco Johns. Exotic Indian has complex flavors and each dish special. The tandoori chicken is wonderful. The chai one of the best.
