Success! Thanks for posting your review of India Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Not Indian Cuisine!

After reading numerous reviews about this place, it is finally clear to me that they are owner written as I have been deeply disappointed in the food quality of this place. Do not go to India Cafe on Fridays for lunch. I had tried them twice on a Friday for lunch and have both times been disappointed in their quality. I have tried their lunch wagon and the food there seems a lot better quality than what was served at... view more

Our friends had referred us to try this. We came, we ate, we left. We'll never return again! This was the worst dining experience ever. I'm not going to list everything bad about this place, but warn you that they must have great days and bad days. The other couple who stomped out when we left also said it was the wrst food they ever ate in any cuisine.

Ditto on the Diarrhea

Just passing reading this review and had a similar experience happen to me. I am a big fan of spicey and hot having lived in Mexico for five years, Indian food was a welcome source for hot. But the flat breads and pamppadams were very sour in taste and I thought that was the way they at this restaurant, but discovered that this had gone bad. I do not advise eating here and try other Indian places.

Got bad diarrhea from eating here

I was recently at this restaurant and got seriously ill from eating the food here. My fiance also got diarrhea from eating here so this was no isolated incident.

India Cafe is Terrific!!

I was first introduced to India Cafe back in 2004 while on a visit with my mother who grew up in India. I did a quick search on-line and heard from a few college friends that India Cafe was a great, authentic family owned Indian restaurant that would not disappoint anyone that was raised on curry. My mother and I ended up having one of the best times and best food we had had in a long time. We even got to bring ou... view more

Best Indian restaurant by far

I am a big traveler and like to try new restaurants and foods everywhere I go. I have gone to many different Indian restaurants and this one is one of the best. The food is excellent, authentic but still has a little twist to it. The samosas were amazing, I ordered extra just to take home with me. The pricing was also very good for the amount of food you got. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone trave... view more

Hale Aina Award Worthy? Hardly.

As a regular consumer and cook of Indian (mostly Northern) cuisine, I didn't object to my father suggesting India Cafe as our next dining experience. He had even pointed out in the Yellow Pages that it had received a Hale Aina Award for Best Indian Restaurant. Neither of us were quite prepared to find that we both shared the opinion that the Hale Aina Award was given in error. The restaurant itself is quite difficult... view more

I now love Indian Food in Hawaii

I had never eaten Indian cuisine before but Im glad i gave it a try at this special little place hidden in Kapahulu near waikiki. I saw a sign for India Cafe and remembered seeing them in the ""Hawaii's Best Restaurants"" guide in the newspaper. As soon as I walked in, a nice man greeted me and sat me down asking if I had ever been here before. He told me all about their special dosai breads, curries, and chutneys... view more

India House VS. India Cafe

Hi Guys ! I am HPU student, Juss finished my class, Starving and craving to eat some spicy indian food. Then i thought to go to India House for Lunch. It was my first time there, so i didn't knew their hours. I was already late. They were about to close, but it was so nice of the waiter to let me eat there. The service was not bad, but the food was terrible. It was one of my worst experience eating there. I should ha... view more

Hawaii's Best Indian Restaurant holds true

We love India Cafe. We recently saw a great review in Newspaper Hawaii's Best Restaurant for India Cafe. We love Indian food and since this was the only Indian restaurant chosen, we had to eat there since the few ones that are here in Hawaii arent very special. We knew it must be good since there were a lot of people dining there but we got seated right away. The waiter informed us that the owners/chefs are Indian ... view more
