I went on trip advisor, and found this restaurant and was interested in checking out the buffet and seeing what they had on their menu. The buffet itself had... More

The Red Onion is an experience you should try at lunch for the first time. Great buffet selections giving you a chance to try many things before committing to a full order of new and different things

As always Red Onion never disappoints. Chicken Masala, Shrimp saqualla (delicious) and garlic naan bread.

This was the worst food I have ever tasted. Will never go back. It was a complete waste of 75.00! I informed the waiter that we were unhappy with the food selection and noticed the food had been out for a while. The waiter explained that there were no refunds. I happily left and ate somewhere else but, will never... More

While in Killeen on business, I happened to try the Red Onion Indian Bistro for take-out one evening. I was really impressed. The food, while on the higher end of the price scale for Killen, was well worth it. I ordered an lamb curry plate and a side of Saag Paneer and I ended up making two meals out of... More

It is never a good sign that on a Saturday at 7:30 PM a restaurant is empty. Years ago this was one of my favorite restaurants. Sad to say, it has greatly deteriorated. My samosas were still frozen in the middle. To make food spicy they dipped it in Sriracha sauce and red peppers. Which completely ruins the flavor. The... More

Not because my friend Kant Raman is one of the owners but. This is honestly the best Indian food in the central Texas area. If you've never had Indian food this is a great place to go the menu is amazing. There is a lot more to Indian than curry chicken or goat. The saquala dishes are delicious and the... More

Nice atmosphere, easy to get to, lots of well-lighted parking. I must say that I became a devotee of the yellow dal. This would be a great place to take a large group because of the aforementioned attributes, but also because of the decor. No special instructions necessary. If you are accostomed to the firey stuff they serve in Asia....... More

I love Indian food and I just love, love the Curry lamb here. I can't name all the dishes that I have enjoyed here. I do the buffet at least twice a week. Doing the buffet affords you the opportunity to try many different dishes. I also thought the yellow potatoes were very good. There's a lot of vegetable dishes.The... More
