NEW OWNER IS GREAT!!!. The food was out of this world, the service was exceptional, and the price was great considering the authentic cuisine! GO EAT!!
The food and service is amazing!!!. First off, the server was also the owner and I couldn't say anything bad about him or the service. Second of all I read the other reviews and wanted to add mine because the previous reviews were from the previous owner. I must say that the food is amazing, the service is amazing. The only thing that could be improved would be the personalization of the seating. But I know that the owner is working on that. If you want amazing service and amazing food please go to India Palace!!!! I have gone several times, with two other friends and also my boyfriend (who is a food snob because he is in the culinary arts: ). We all agree. Please try India Palace!!!

Lackluster Service, Presentation.
I recently moved from Ann Arbor to DeWitt and have been craving good Indian food. I was pretty skeptical that East Lansing could compete with Ann Arbor's cullinary offerings, and I am afraid I was correct. Upon entering, we smelled the familiar lovely scent and felt optimistic. The host didn't greet us. She stood at the extreme back of the restaurant and pointed toward a booth next to her with a stern expression. We took our seats. The menu offerings were what we expected, and the prices seemed to be in line with the atmosphere. We each ordered vindaloo (mine was medium chicken and my husband ordered the spicy lamb) and a side of garlic naan. The server told us that the other guests' orders would be prepared first, so ours might take a while. The other guests consisted of a table of 8 and a table of 3.
We were prepared to wait a little longer than average for our food, but I expected some papadam or other munchies to tide us over, since we both ordered entrees. We weren't offered anything at all. The food took much longer than expected and all came out at once, even though the other two parties were presented with naan well in advance of their meals being served. I was very hungry and would have appreciated something to nibble while we waited.
The food itself was unimpressive. The vindaloo was lukewarm though presented over a tealight flame. My medium-spicy dish was less than mild, and my husband's "spicy" dish was anything but. They were both very salty, however, and the portions were decidedly on the small side. The rice was very oily. The garlic naan was actually very good, but we only got one piece cut into quarters for $2.50.
The final insult was the dish of anise seed at the door. It was sitting out empty. Overall, it was a disappointing dining experience and we won't be going back.
Great Buffet!. This place has great Indian Food! I've tried several places in Ann Arbor, and much preferred India Palace. Great vegetarian dishes! The lunch buffet is great for $8 & included Indian Tea (a sweetened spicy tea-- I'd never had it before). The ambiances is a little off-beat... with a HUGE TV that sometimes shows Indian movies. Service was great & friendly.
