I like this place. The mainstays (palaak paneer, chicken tikka masala) are all good and the naan is really above and beyond what I've had at most Indian restaurants. The outdoor deck is great, and if it's cold, they have cozy indoor seating under a huge mural. I think it's a bit pricier than a lot of the other Indian restaurants in the area, but it is fancier.

The service is great and the decor of the place is good, but don't go there if you want the real taste of India (I am Indian). The food seems to be very "Americanized"...Go to India Palace in Alameda for the best indian food around. They also charge the same rate and have good buffet deals

Pros: Good service

It is cool place for Indians as well as American. Lunch Buffet any day, baby!!! I believe its still about $10 and a drink.
They always have a great selection of 4 vegetarian and 2 meat dishes. Endless yummy Naan by the basket, rice and sauces. Fantastic deal for the great food you can consume, always friendly servers, and a beautiful heated outside patio. They deserve five stars

First time I went to Khana Peeena, I was a bit reluctant - I saw one bad review suggesting the food was not fresh (and needing to go to the bathroom after). Then I realized they opened a branch just in front of another good Indian restaurant, so I took the chance (as it looked clean and nice from the outside).
That has been 4 months ago. I live nearby and it has become my favorite restaurant. I go there at least once a week (and that's a lot, considering the variety of restaurants around).
Since then, I brought a lot of friends and we all agreed - great value for your money. This is were I go when I feel like "home cooking" (and I am not an Indian).
Service is great, sometimes a bit slow (but not more than you'd expect from an Indian restaurant).

P.S. - This review refers Rockridge branch (the one on college).
Another thing - I eat mostly vegeterian food - they have a huge list of great vegeterian dishes.
My friends tried, of course, the other non-vegeterian dishes and loved them. I can only tell about the vgeterian part of the menu (and I LOVED the naans).

Bottom line: my favorite Indian restaurant in the bay area!

Cons: very rarely service may be a bit slow (happened once, when I had a late lunch)

I went to this restaurant after being told highly of it by my associates at work and friends. I am a recurrent diner and have tried pretty much everything in the Bay Area. However i was surprised that i had missed out on such an astounding place. The food was simply remarkable and the place had an incredible ambience. The music was perfect which complemented the food, wine dcor and the service. I was told to make reservations but since I had not been to Khana Peena I decided not to. On a Monday night I had to wait 25 mins for a table. But at the end the wait was well worth it. Khana Peena definitely earns its merits through its service and an amazing dcor.Khana Peena is definitely on my favorite list. Try it out.

Pros: Startling Decor, Superb Service

This place is wierd. The decor looks nice and the food is okay but the manager is kind of sleazy and he humiliated the bus boy right in front of us. That just ruined my meal.

We went to Khana Peena on Solano this weekend and had their buffet lunch. Now, I know that's always a bit of a risk, but because we had been to this particular restaurant about few times before - and it was OK - we thought we'd give it another try. However, both my boyfriend and I woke up at 2 am and had major problems with our digestive tract. We know for a fact that it was not indigestion since it took the typical 10-12 hours to incubate before the explosions happened and we hadn't eaten anything for 6 hours prior or anything at all after.
We highly recommend that anyone steers clear of this place!

Khana Peena is good, not excellent Indian food, but the atmosphere is lovely and the waitstaff is very attentive. The Thalis are a good value but the flavors aren't out of this world. It's consistent, and there are plenty of options.

Just your typical blob of Indian food; taste quality and quality of spices not up to par with other Indian restaurants in the area. Service was spotty and some of the staff was rude.

Khana Peena is a wonderful restaurant to eat at. The food is wonderful, the staff is amazingly courteous and amicable, and the variety and value are unbeatable. It is great for people who are just starting into Indian food, or more seasoned cuisiniers. Definitely my favorite in the East Bay!!

The quiet, soothing tables or the private booths at this restuarant take you to India. The waiters are pleasant and the food is divine. Prices are market rate and once you try it, you will recomend it to your friends and family and return again yourself.

As per everybody says its the one restaurant in the indian cuisines. I too want to say the same thing. dinner is good, and i am impressed by their buffet system too. Everyday they change their buffet items so no one can bore by the same menu but one thing always remain there and its the chicken tikka masala. No one can compete the quality of their food because they have the best taste in the best country. Their Mango lassi is delicious and i always have that with my food.

The first and last restaurant which i liked THE MOST in the indian restaurants is only THE KHANA PEENA INDIAN CUISINE. I am a usually visiter over there and have dinner and wine and sometimes the beer. The place is very cool and the bar attendant know my taste. All the person work there are very helping and know what you want to eat and drink so its the one of the best restaurant in the bay area. I highly recommend you too go over there and i bet if you can't visit over there again.

The lunchtime buffet is SUCH a bargain--and you can have it on the weekend! The food is good, too. The naan is delicious. No, more than delicious. The lamb and chicken dishes have big pieces of meat, the vegetable dishes are terrific. There's always tandoori chicken. And for what? Maybe $8 all you can eat--including decent rice pudding. All I can say is, it makes me happy.
