We will NEVER go here again.
Once the manager and cook both had a massive argument inside the restaurant. Being an Indian, do not go there or ORDER for food. I am sure your food will be stale, cold or just depressing.
Swagat or Sindhus..
Just because I had to give a star rating, I gave them a star.
We shared several vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Other than the vindaloo (which tasted like canned tomato sauce) all were interesting and delicious. So I guess they can't make vindaloo, but everything else was really wonderful!

Lousi food and service
Little touches like a warm damp towel for your hands when you are first seated and a nice refreshing (non-alcohol) "welcome' drink makes this place really special.
I highly recommed this place for anyone, including families!
Then we started tasting the food. We started with appetizer and it was very nice. Usually pakoras will be made out of only one vegetable. This guy used all kind of vegetables to make his pakora. I liked each one especially the one made with yellow squash.
I really liked the Tandoori chicken. It is definitely an authentic Indian style Tandoori chicken. It was very well done. The only thing that was missing on that day was Biriyani.
I would visit this place again and also would recommend this place to my friends.
Paddy Rawal's India Palace is something special. This guy even delivers and offers carry out. I have recommended all my friends and family who are into indian food to check this place out, because its something you dont want to miss out on.
So I whole heartedly recommended this place, at the east lansing food festival, this place sold over 5,000 samosas.. It was craazzzzy how the crowd went over the exotic appetizers, the place was dishing out..
Tandoori chicken needs a lot of work. The marinating is incomplete. Why cant anyone in US make tandoori chicken as you get back home. Tandoori chicken is below average at India palace. but I have faith in Paddy. He will improve upon it. Also on sunday they need more helping hands. Dishes were not available for a long time - I mean the entrees and the dish (plate) it self. I will try India palace a couple of times each time telling paddy to improve upon the tandoori chicken ... if no improvement is found i will have to go to Sindhu.
Good luck Paddy.
We ordered the buffet lunch and were very pleased with the selection. Each sauce/entree served in the buffet had its own distinct flavor and resonance. It was really fun to sample the variety of flavors placed before us. For those diners who are cautious with Indian food owing to a fear of them being too hot, I can allay your fears. The food was spicy but not too hot. I think just about any diner would be able to enjoy the food. In addition, the waiters were more than willing to advise when asked their opinions.
My advice? Check it out, its worth the experience. I definitely intend to visit it again!
The food is incredible, likely the best Indian food I've ever eaten. I sampled almost everything and found all of it to be delicious, especially the Hot and Sour vegetable soup and the Tandoori chicken, which was rich without being overpowering, nuanced without being bland, and almost silky in its feeling.
It was a great experience and I look forward to my next visit.
Paddy is an exceptionally gracious host and a fabulous and creative chef. Compared to other Indian restaurants I've tried (over twenty in at least six US states), all of Paddy's dishes are just a little different from what I've come to expect, always in a good way. He seems to like to personalize and adapt traditional recipes, and has a flair for doing this well. His presentation is another classy touch--though it didn't particularly affect the flavor, I enjoyed seeing the drizzle of red grenadine syrup decorating the glass of my mango lassi.
Prior to the new ownership, I'd never seen clientele who appeared to be from the Indian subcontinent (or really, more than one or two other customers at a time). In all of the three visits I've already made in just over a week, the place has been bustling every time (though not as crowded as, say, Raja Rani in Ann Arbor--there's still room for growth!), and there are a number of customers who appear to have come for a taste of home.
It's great to see a small local business starting to thrive in our depressed Michigan economy. Go in today and offer your support--your taste buds will be glad you did!
Knowing my cousin was looking forward to home cooked Indian food. Time was running out and they were to arrive at 9:30pm on Good Friday from Columbus, OHio. I then suggested to my mom, "How bout we order take out" from Paddy's place, the India Palace?" She thought this was a great idea. We arrived at the restaurant around 8ish. I was pleased to see that there were people dining and Paddy had additional staff to help him. We were greeted graciously by the new server and later Paddy. Paddy took our order. We explained to him the importance and time factor. After completing our order of 4 different dishes; chicken curry, sikkh lamb kebob, chicken byriani and aloo vegetable dish. Paddy assured us that we can return at 9pm to pick it up. Sure enough we arrived at 9pm and our food was ready.
We took our food home. Put it in appropriate dishes. My cousin and his wife arrived 15 minutes later. They were absolutely impressed with each dish, the individual spices and flavors. My mother and I thank you Paddy for helping us out to have a relaxing and wonderful Good Friday dinner at home. We wish you the best.
MANAGEMENT HAS CHANGED in 2009 and it will definitely change ur idea u had about this place on East Lansing
STOP GOING TO SINDHU, especially due to their female waitresses (fair female)
It was definately a much more gourmet dining experience, yet the prices were still very reasonable. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I think I am going to go back this weekend to see how the buffet is.
When we went in, there was no one in there. There was only one waitress, who did a decent job otherwise.
The food selection was disappointing. Me and my colleague went to Sindhu's couple months ago and their food quality, taste and variety was much better. Their deserts were great too.
This place has apparently focussed too much on their decoration, etc. Again, since it's down-time may be they are not worrying too much about their offerings, but I would highly recommend Sindhu's overIndia Palace!
Overall - 4.5/10
Dinner is still pretty good. They don't really make the food spicy enough, and the last time I went, they were out of the key ingredient to my favorite dish. It wasn't anything exotic either, it was cauliflower.
Overall, I'll go there again, but won't go out of my way to make it there.
My only criticism is that the new location has a "warehouse" feel because the ceiling is so high.
At the new location the quality of food seems to have decreased during the lunch buffet, but the dinner is still the same.
The place only has one problem, and it only applies to the lunch buffet. At lunch the waiters are only clearing plates and dispensing drinks. Every time I ate there for lunch it seemed like we always had to wait a long time to get more water. Often we were in a hurry and it would take a long time to pay the bill, as well.
