From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2009

It’s a regal name but this superb Indian restaurant deserves it. Not only is the interior visually stunning, the delectable array of food is fit for a maharaja.

Feast your eyes on the intricate wood panelling, dainty ceiling paintings and pretty copper tableware before feasting your tastebuds on interesting dishes like the banjara kofta – a soft ball of crushed paneer rolled in spinach, deep-fried and served with a spicy tomato gravy, or the moreish spinach and lentil patties.

Hi All, The restaurant was deserted on Friday nyt (Ramadan) and apart from us there was just one family dining. We ordered 1. Dal Makhani 2. Paneer tikka masala and 3 . Stuffed aloo with cottage cheese dal makhani and paneer tikka masala were cooked ordinarily ( just like u get in any local mallu restaurant)..The only item liked by us was stuffed aloo with cottage cheese. Overall i wdnt be going in there again and neither i wd recommend it to anyone.

The management was horrible. Had taken 20 guest for dinner for a fixed menu and given prior instructions for medium spicy meal the same was not followed. The food was tasteless.

In my opinion, your heart should get filled than stomach filling in restaurants. In such way, India palace is very good. Excellent interior, extraordinary service & hospitality, pleasant music and above all quality food. What else you want from the restaurant. My first good experience in restaurant in UAE. My family and me strongly receommend this restaurant. Waiting to visit again.

Came visiting on 17th night. Quet surroundings broken by the musician duo playing their instruments. Was a tad dissapointed on finding out they had no singer.
Had the tandoori lal jhinga and followed up with palak paneer lasooni, rogan josh and plain naan. The food was well presented and tasted good too.
Total cost for two(Dhs):
Tandoori lal jhinga 55
Palak paneer lasooni 25
Rogan josh 35
4 plain naan @5 20
Large water 6

We visited India Palace on August 02, 2010 in the evening for dinner. We had invited some guests there for dinner. On arrival, although we had made a reservation by phone, they did not have an adequate table for us. Food was not up to the standard. Most of the starters tasted the same. Main course was somewhat better than the starters but still lacking. And the service was "so so". I have to say that we have been to this restaurant on several previous occasions and found it quite good. However, this one time has left me with a bad impression. I will not go there again and would not recommend it to anyone either.

The first thing that struck us about the Indian Palace was the stunning ambiance....the beautifully intricrate wooden panels, the soft lighting, the peaceful setting, and even a small pool strewn with flowers in the stairwell.
We started with the papadum and pickle, which was wonderful in itself, before moving on to our lamb rogan josh (absolutely amazing flavours...perfectly done!). The thandai and jaljeera drinks were a treat, as were the gulab jamun and saffron kulfi to end the meal.
Throughout the meal, the service was absolutely impeccable, and our waitstaff patiently gave us detailed answers to our questions about the food.
Partway through our meal, the musicians arrived and began playing, which was unexpected and a very, very nice accompaniment to such a fine meal. Thank you so much Indian Palace! Your restaurant is the one we will make a point of revisiting when we may finally return to Dubai. All the best wishes for continued (and very much deserved) success for your business!
