This was the first place I ate at, on my very first night upon moving here 2 weeks ago. I am so glad this experience doesn't represent Santa Fe. I was literally the only guest in the place, for the entire time I was there....More

Went to dinner here with friends, it was very empty inside and the staff was quick, but kind of cold (no smiles). My dish was very tasty, I'll give them that! However, all the dishes were small and over-priced. I probably would go somewhere else...More

Terrible mistake coming going here for dinner. There are some places where the food is out of this world but the service and ambiance are mediocre at best. Then there are places where the service and ambiance are excellent even if the food lags behind...More

The first time we went a couple of years ago, the lunch buffet was decent, both in price and quality of food. This last time was not good. The food was decidedly lackluster and the price was outrageous considering the food quality. To top it...More

The only way this restaurant makes business is people walk in unknowingly This used to be a wonderful restaurant until it changed hands. The new owner is a real jerk and yelled at us several times. The fist time was when he was seating us....More

India Palace located in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. Is the oldest Indian restaurant in New Mexico, serving Santa Fe since 1990. In 1997, India Palace hired a new chef by the name of Billu to be their head chef. In 1998 he left the restaurant. In the summer of 2013, Billu bought the restaurant and restored the taste and quality of the 1990's. India Palace now has the authentic taste that comes with skilled chefs from India. All spices are imported from India to give you that authentic Indian taste. Come try our food, we will be around for years to come.
