Video review of Indian Kitchen

My video review of Indian Kitchen is found at:

I've had Indian Kitchen for a few years now, and haven't really been big fan of the restaurant. The main reason may be because I've always had a horrible stomach cramp after curries. Maybe my stomach just didn't match the spices that were placed in them, but I had the fried rice meal last time, and it was actually not bad. I'd probably recommend the place due to their location and the price of the meals themselves, and for those of us who prefer delivery, it should be a great relief that they deliver also.

Can't believe they are still open... Riding Indian Oven's coat-tails, I guess

Okay, so if you've been in the area few years, you may or may not know that Indian Kitchen is the original location of Indian Oven. Indian Oven has moved downtown and is now a fancy, hip place.

I am POSITIVE that the glowing reviews for Indian Kitchen must be from people mistaking it for Indian Oven because Indian Kitchen is the worst Indian food in Columbus, by a long shot. I'm astounded that they've managed to stay open, particularly after Taj Mahal moved right across the street from them.

Their chicken dishes are usually made with all dark meat, which is unacceptable for the price (call me a snob but I just don't want to be served only dark meat in a $14 dish!). Their rice is plain white, unspiced basmati rice. Where are the fennel seeds, cloves & saffron? Not at Indian Kitchen, that's for sure!

They tend to add a LOT of onions to their dishes, particularly Saag Paneer/Palak Paneer (same dish). Onions are cheap filler-food. For the prices they're charging, I don't want filler.

Conclusion: For the prices they're charging, you may as well go across the street to Taj Mahal. I guarantee you'll be happier there!

awesome student discounts, close to campus, never busy

Indian Kitchen is very scrumptious and time efficient. It is never busy and the owner is a sweet heart who is always very generous to OSU students and usually offers a discount regardless. I highly recommend it.



Great prices and food! It's a ...

Great prices and food! It's a bit far from me, but it's worth the travel! Take out is very fast!

Worst Food, Worst customer service, Dirty

I went to the Indian Kitchen today and wanted to try the lunch buffet
but there was no one in the small dirty restaurant
and there were only 4 dishes for the buffets and looked like left over
the condition was not good and dirty
so i decided not to eat here
when i leave the restaurant, the owner of the restaurant
so ya.......i do not recommand anyone to go
the place should be put out of business already
if i were you i will not even think about walk in there, if you don't want the owner
to slam the door at your face

Excellent Veggies and bread, bad meat and service

The experience would have been much better if the waiter, Andrew, wasn't so inconsiderate (stronger terms not allowed in review). I would have left but, (ironically) some of the food was great. The veggie dishes were the best I've had at an Indian restaurant, but that's the only redeeming quality. Run-down place, the meat from the tandoor is horribly dry and bland.

best indian i've ever had, tried many others

This place is SO good. dont judge it by the outside, appears a little dirty. gentleman that owns it is very sweet and accomodating. they have the best samosa i've ever had. i live 30 min from this place and still go there at least once a week.i've tried numerous indian places around columbus in hopes of finding a place closer thats good, but none can compare. I have eaten at indian restaurants in FL, CA, NY, NC, etc. and i promise none can compare. i love that i can wear comfy clothes and get a seat at the busiest times. i almost hate to let the secret out.

Best Indian in Columbus, for a low key night

Ok, so it's not a ""fancy"" place. Other reviewers have commented that this place has poor food, service, and ambiance. But I suppose that depends what you're looking for. Say what you will, but eating in an old, creaky house that's been converted to a two-story dining area and served by a small staff provides a much more quaint and intimate experience than in a ""classier"" joint. You want ambiance? This is real atmosphere, family restaurant family setting, not some americanized bistro like what Indian Oven has become. Service CAN be slow in the evenings, but the buffet is always great and it's the only buffet in Columbus that prepares the naan fresh for every customer.

I used to eat here on a weekly basis while going to OSU. I have found few restaurants even in Chicago's large Indian community on Devon that can match the flavor of Indian Kitchen's dishes. Every time I come back to Columbus to visit, my fiance and I make sure to stop at Indian Kitchen to get our fix.

Easily the best Navratan Korma and Palak Paneer anywhere in the midwest.

Worst restaurant in Columbus, Ohio

Worst service possible. Very small place. The owner doesn't care for the customers, the food is over-priced and the place has no ambience whatsoever. Avoid it like plague.

Average place for fast food

THis is a small place, service depends on how many customers they have. Very laid back atmosphere. I would feel comfy here in my PJs. Service is good on a slow day but not so friendly.
