The store had been in Business for over 30 years but has been closed for at least 6 months. I ate there twice and ended up with an upset stomach both times.

Great dishes out for the lunch buffet, a dollar off with a Seton Hall University (nearby) ID card. Every dish here is great, and it is as much as you want at the buffet of course. They often have wonderful Gulab Jamun as dessert, they...More

Neelam is nice Indian food, pretty much standard issue, but delicious. I go for the lunch buffet, which will have a selection of vegetarian and meat items, always including chicken tandoori , rice, salad, a bread, and a dessert. It's a good buy. Dinner is...More

I have been going to Neelam for over 20 years (since 1993 at least). In the last year or so I would say that the service has fallen. More importantly, the prices have risen without the food going up in quality. I still order take...More

I eat here a lot because if you're in the mood for an Indian meal, it hits the spot. The service can be a little slow (although they are very friendly) and the decor is a bit dated and drab, but the food makes it...More

I do like Indian spices, but not necessarily Indian food, especially in buffet style. I don't know; it's just not my favorite. I've had better in Montclair, NJ, and much, much better in Washington Heights, NY. The samosas their were to die for, but unfortunately,...More
