I give it just four out of five stars only because there are a couple of Indian restaurants in Seattle that I think are a bit better. But, still, the food is flavorful, the naan is fresh and warm, and they offer takeout. Great location,...More

The place has consistently delivered the best Indian food in the area and is convenient for ordering before getting off the 17. Always, cooked to perfection and able to make special requests. Great atmosphere and service.

I initially went here for a friend's surprise birthday party. I live 3.5 hours away and I've been back to this restaurant at least 4 times. If I happen to be going to Seattle, I make a point of going by India Bistro.

Overall the food was pretty good, especially the Tikka Masala, but the star of the meal was the Spinach Naan. Filled with tons of spinach, buttery and crispy, we ended up ordering a second serving of the naan to take home because it was that...More

I didn't know you could do Indian food this poorly. The buffet food was virtually spice-free and the nan bread was hot, but uncooked inside and still pasty. Just going through the motions here.
