Was invited to lunch today and I suggested India Garden. The other person had never tried Indian cuisine but was pleasantly surprised. The lunch buffet offers a good variety. The dinner menu is magnificent. The hot Indian tea is the best. Highly recommend.

A reasonable range of choices on the lunch buffet. Really run by Indians. I go occasionally. Nothing outstanding.

I've only gotten 3 things take-out but the quality is high. A bit pricey but for me it's several meals.

This little storefront houses a small but pleasant dining area. We went for the Lunch buffet on a Saturday at 1 pm and it was virtually empty, but is slowly got busier, a relief for any buffet customer. The modest selection serves up 3 relatively mild and not unduly challenging main chicken-based dishes - no goat curry here!, and some... More

Second visit for me to this somewhat hidden gem in Asheville. In a city reknowned for it's restaurants, this is one you WANT to get out of downtown for. Now, there's an Indian restaurant downtown that is great, but is often crowded and difficult to get seated at. India Garden is well worth the 5 minute drive from downtown, and... More

It's easy parking. It's nice and quite. There is a beautiful picture that I like to look at of the Taj Mahal, the servers are really nice. And it's good, really good. Even for me who is a vegetarian.

We ended up with baskets of the garlic and plain nan. Outstanding bread. Then we got the Lamb Curry and Lamb Korma. Again outstanding. I got medium hot and it was just a touch too hot for perfection but I'm a wimp I guess but it still was so good. Leftovers were fought over for breakfast the next day!

India Garden is no major life-changing culinary experience, but it is consistent and it is delicious. My husband and I eat here about once a month, and we always leave satisfied. The waitstaff keeps your drink full and your plates clear. I liken this restaurant to Indian home-cooking - it makes for a happy belly.

Buffet lunch at India Garden was good, but lacking in some way. It was well presented and plentiful. Perhaps just a bit too predictable and ordinary. Nothing really stood out in terms of food or service. The service seemed a bit distant - not what we're used to. Getting chai tea was more difficult than than it should have been.... More

So happy we stumbled onto this little place. It is located in a large strip mall with TJMaxx and Joann's Fabrics. We went for lunch and were pleased to find a beautiful buffet set up! The person I was with was uncertain about what to order and this gave them an opportunity to try a few things. Everything on the... More
