My husband and I love Indian food, and we're happy to stumble upon this little restaurant . The lunch menu is a great value, but dinner prices are reasonable too. It is a BYOB, which we love. Food was tasty and plentiful, service was great and we will definitely be back!

I can't eat hot peppers/cayenne, which isn't normally a problem at Indian restaurants. I just ask them to leave out the cayenne. Here, even though I very specifically asked for the dish to be completely mild/no cayenne, the meal was too spicy. So they brought an alternate dish leaving out any India spices at all (no cumin, coriander, ginger, cardamon,... More

The cross culture restaurant is part of a chain or so I think. They own or manage Pind, Palace of Asia and a restaurant in Plainsboro, NJ. They have a lot of American clientele so the food is not spicy but is very flavorful. There is a large variety of dishes to select from so you will never go hungry.

Fine Indian food, but not as good as other places near Princeton, like the Pind or Mehek. But more convenient location.

I've been coming here for a few years. I am Indian and know my food. This place is excellent and serves the best Indian food in NJ. Their palak paneer is Michelin star worthy.

Best chicken tikka masala around. Peaceful ambiance and great service. I'd recommend going for dinner and having a warm meal with a cool mango lassi.

Love Indian food. Have enjoyed it all over the world. In a shopping center, this place superseded all expectations. Excellent blend of spice. We did takeout and only criticism was meat was mildly overcooked. Staff was top notch
