A brief lunch stop at the India Castle. Menu limited, but the offerings were quite palatable. No issues with weak sauces or flavours that previous reviews refer to.

I have never been to India and I can't claim to be able to differentiate between authentic and inauthentic Indian food. I visited India Castle during the lunch buffet period and found the sauces to be mild and "watered down". The richness of the spices...More

The food was pretty good. The service was spotty though. It was empty when we first got there and we got lots of attention. By the time we were ready to leave, it was crowded and it took us about 5 or 10 minutes to...More
