Passage to India has been one of our favorites for a number of years. The restaurant is casual and comfortable, service is quick and friendly, and the food is simply great. Prices are very reasonable too. We will be back again and again.

Went for lunch from Peabody Essex museum around the corner. Efficient service. Food fresh and homemade (in the good way). Sauces were not salty or heavy. So good!!!!! We ate everything but the plates. If I lived in Salem they would know me here.

As a Brit I have visited hundreds of Indian restaurants. This is certainly the best I have been to within a 30 mile radius of Salem, and probably farther. The simplest test of an Indian restaurant is the quality of the rice; here it's best...More

We love Indian food and are never disappointed when we go to Passage to India. Plenty of yummy choices - we have to push ourselves not to stay with the same entrée when we go back. Lots of deep flavors and perfectly cooked food. We...More
