Not recommended for a nice indian-dining experience.
This was the first indian rest. I went to in Miami, the owner just like the person below me mentioned, is careless, we had to stand up there waiting and he didn't even care to ask us table for how many, until we approached him ! We said table for two, and then he told the waiter table for three. The menu had so much variety, so I said that's great, it might make up for the rude wait.
We sit down and I order chicken tikka masala, beleive me, I've had better MUCH MORE delicious chicken tikka masalas sold in small food-court restaurants. It was way below average, the masala was very thin-watery like, and the rice was plain white rice, you couldn't smell the aroma of a nice indian cooking. the sambosa was average. We ordered drinks & it took forever to get here, by the time we finished food. We had to call three different waiters.
Would not go there again. I'd rather cook it at home, or eat it frozen.
OWNER APATHY. The owner here does not care about the customer. From the moment you walk in, you are not acknowledged, despite having made eye contact with the owner. You are made to feel, as if you where imposing on the owner. The owner just has way too much attitude, not the type of person whom should be in such a people related business. Despite being mid week, and plenty of tables, we where still made to wait, having our meal ordered took another 15 min, I finally stared at the owner, and he took our order (with an attitude). The food was okay, but not at par for the price they charge. Lamb was very rubber like, beef curry was better. Waiter was amicable, but by then, our mood was fouled. The only thing harder to swallow than their rubber lamb, was the $50 + bill for a lousy dinner. Would never come back here again, and highly advise others, to save your money and go somewhere better.
Great Deals. For those who are somewhat new to Indian food, House of India is a good place to come by. The restaurant has a couple options that offer a group of entrees which resemble a typical Indian dinner. For those who know what to order, House of India has very tasty offerings at hand. In my opinion, House of India has never dissappointed me as far as taste goes. It is true that service may be slow sometimes, or that they will forget to bring your tea if not reminded, but overall it is a great restaurant and one I visit very often because it has some of the best food in town. Add to that the tastiest and largest Indian lunch buffet for under $10, and you have a loyal customer.
Best Indian Restaurant in Miami.
Me and My family travel alot and we know first hand that there are very few good Indian Restaurants around. House of India was one of the best Indian Restaurants I have ever been to in the US or UK!
My visit was perfect! We ended up at House of India on a wednesday and the wait staff took care of us like family! Prompt seating, great service, good portions and all with a smile! The young hostess who took our order was very nice and polite. She answered all of our questions and explained items very well! I do admit, we kinda gave them a hard time but I didnt expect them to be so nice! The tall waiter served our food like a true professional and he also smiled alot and explained everything! We had appitizers, main course, deserts, and chai! Everything was GREAT! we look forward to coming to Miami and visiting again! Thank you House of India!
Other than the chicken tandoori. Service was poor,carpet smelled like urine.Most of the food we ordered was terrible except the chicken tandoori
Worst indian buffet on the planet. Worst indian buffet on the planet...absolutely atrocious. No flavor, poor selection, no spices, mostly sauce/oil and an occassional chunk of low quality meat. i am about to shred butt because of them. i've had dinner there once before and it was also sub-par compared to Imlee, which is a fine, fine Indian restaurant (but a little more expensive)
THE worst Indian I've ever had.
The wait on a Saturday eve at 8:30PM was 25 min (MY BAD didnt reserve no big deal).
The Appetizer I ordered never arrived.
The entre was Chicken Tikka - it was tasteless (a very hard thing to accomplish with Indian food) it was also dried out.
The Basmati rice was of poor quality
After finishing (what I could) I had to wait another 20 minutes before I could get a waiter to approach my table and then wait for the check.
I'm a business traveler and I spend aprox 2 weeks on the road every month visiting my company's satellite offices (there are 35 across the country). I love Indian food and try to find an Indian restaurant in every City I visit.
The food at House of India was THE WORST Indian food I have ever had ANYWHERE in the US (this includes at least 30 Cities).
Delicious and authentic.... I recently had the pleasure of eating at House of India. The food was delicious. We enjoyed the kafta kabobs, basmati rice and delicious vegetable plates.. The tandoori chicken would of been my only complaint. I've been to several restaurants that specialize in tandoori, and this wasn't one of those places. The chicken was dry and it was a sliced breast you can pick up at the local Publix, with a flavoring added to it. Very disappointed. The restaurant doesn't fill up fast so there is plenty of seating. All in all, I enjoyed it.. But I would pass on the tandoori chicken.
Feast on down-to-earth Indian food during the popular buffet at this fair-priced restaurant..
The space is huge, with seating for over 100 in three separate dining rooms and a catering hall. Therefore, it's never too crowded; nonetheless, service is usually slow.
Office workers in the area rave about the super cheap lunch buffet where $6.95 (or $7.95 on the weekends) buys you more than a dozen dishes including chicken tandoori, curry chicken, mutton curry, two vegetables, dahl, nan, vegetable samosa, meat samosa, salads and a custard dessert. For a few more dollars, dinner is also worthwhile, with a full menu of Northern specialties such as biryani (a sauteed rice dish with a choice of meats and veggies) and chicken tandoori. In addition to several Indian beers, there's a full liquor bar.
