My husband and I absolutely love Star of India . Every time we go it's consistently great food although sometimes service does lack we let it go because the food is worth it. Rogan josh is my husbands favorite and mine is chicken tikka masala , with of course the garlic naan bread!

If you're looking for a "go to" Indian restaurant with dishes that explode with flavor, Star of India delivers. The interior décor is very traditional and it is on the darker side.

You'll start with some complimentary flavorful sauces and a thin cracker. We began out meal with the Mulligatawny soup. While tasty, it was lightly seasoned and served in a bowl, enough for two people to start. The Lamb Vindaloo had quality chunks of meat (minimal fat on them) and there was plenty of sauce leftover. The sauce itself had several flavors blended in and while it was spicy, it was not over the top --- you can even choose the spiciness level when ordering. The Tandoori Chicken was really good! Not only was the chicken moist inside with a slightly charred outside, but peppers and onions served with the chicken were so tasty they could have been served by itself. The rice was light and flaky, although it could have been a little more moist. The garlic nan bread had some kick to it so Vampires beware. We didn't leave room for dessert but they have several choices.

Good service with good food. Portions are large. It is a little dark in there. They have the same people working there for many years

We came here alot during the late 90s and early 2000s. The food was always good and the ambiance was great. Just went there again tonight and the food was as good as we remembered. We had the chicken Tika, Sag Paneer, and that eggplant dish we can never pronounce. It was all good, they even remembered our names from years ago.

We had a group of 6 and ordered 11 different dishes ( we took so much home) because we had to try "everything". Each entry was perfectly spiced to the degree we had asked for and perfectly cooked. The chicken was tender ( not dried out like I have had elsewhere) and the sauces were rich and homemade. The lighting is too dim and our table was a bit small for 6 persons, we could have used a side table. We brought wine and the server, quickly supplied glasses and an ice bucket. This was an excellent experience. There is a parking lot behind the restaurant.
