I have heard good things about this place including online reviews and word of mouth so my husband and I decided to give it a try after work on a Wed. It is quite a drive from the east side but we figured it would be worth it. We got there around 5:00pm and it was empty. Had I gone alone I would have walked right out. There was no music or any noise whatsoever. The hostess sat us and there was a man sitting in the back, I assume was the chef since as soon as he heard us tell the hostess the order he walked to the kitchen. We heard pots and pans banging away (again no nice music just silence besides the kitchen racket). The food came out after 15 mins we weren't given any Indian bread while we waited. Which was disappointing since I am half Indian I am used to getting naan as I wait for my main course. We ordered Masala Dosa and Tandoori Chicken. The chicken seemed bland and were tiny pieces mostly bone. My Masala Dosa was missing filling and the dipping sauces provided were tasteless. I asked for the bread (naan) and received 3 broken hard stale pieces. I was disappointed but I can say that the flavor in the Masala Dosa itself was on point. Just those 2 items and 2 soft drinks ran us 28.00 (including tip). I don't think we will be going back. I was nervous since my husband has never had Indian food and I wanted this to be a good experience for him but he didn't seem impressed. I recommend buying some spices from a Indian grocery store in the area and marinating your own chicken overnight to achieve the flavors that Indian food should have.

I came yesterday for lunch, I now live on the east side of the city, so it was a very pleasant suprise that the only Indian resturant I have located in El Paso is the best Indian food I have eaten ever! Only England has the same level of quality and taste that I have had 'back home'. I understand that there is another Indian in Las Cruces, yet they travel here for India Palace. Will be back again soon :-)
This is the place I go to to get my Indian food fix (I'm of Indian origin) Good aesthetics, calm environment. Their lunch buffet is reasonable and I like their chai. My husband says if I cooked Indian food like that he would have Indian food more often during the week.
