Face it -- when it comes to Indian food, there is not much to choose from in Bay Ridge. In fact, I'm only aware of two: India Passage and Taj Mahal.

I haven't eaten here in person, but the food I've ordered has been pretty good. Taj Mahal's food was okay, but not great. If you're looking for something a little more authentic, you'll probably have to go to a neighborhood with more Indian people in it.

For what it is, where it is, this has so far been a pretty good place. The prices were just raised a few months ago, so it is not quite as affordable as it once was.

If you love Indian food go to this restaurant. It has great food and good service. The price is affordable and you leave very satisfied. I went here with a few couples and we all agree that we would go back.

I was craving Indian one night and we decided to try this place.. oh what a mistake, the food was so poorly prepared that we just wanted to pay for them to take it out of our site. We should have known not to eat here when there was a number of flies buzzing about the restaurant. That is always is a bad sign. Try the cheesy nan bread if you really want to purge, I think they dump cheese whiz inside. Stay far away from this place.

i'm struggling valiantly to find something negative to say about this place, but i truly can't. great service, atmosphere, and most importantly, great food! i've been to many indian restaurants and have not liked a single one until i went to india passage. if my finicky stomach enjoyed it with no messy after effects, i'm sure you will, too.

One of the best places I've ever been in. The food is great, the staff is polite and accomodating. The only negatives are the ability of the bartender to mix drinks and parking. But it shouldn't keep you from checking this place out. Try Bhati Kebab and Bengal Shrimp... Delicious!

I have tried many many Indian restaurants in the NY Metro area and India Passage is hands down the best!

It was originally recommended to me by an Indian physician and for very good reason. And even those who have never tried Indian food before will enjoy it.

The comment by one of the reviewers that the food was not spicy hot is really meaningless as the kitchen will prepare the dishes for you however you wish -- from hot, hot, hot to not hot at all. No matter how much or how little heat you request, every dish is incredibly well-prepared and incredibly flavorful.

India Passage is very fairly priced considering what you get and is expertly and professionally run by owner / manager Farouk.

This is one of my favorite restaurants of any kind and I recommend it highly.

Pros: Incredibly FLAVORFUL dishes!

Cons: None to speak of.

Everything tasted like dinner food- not enough spice, not enough sauce. The rice was tough and bland. We ordered 3 kinds of lamb dishes- they weren't bad but the meat was tough and again..not nearly authentic enough- more like fast food Indian. The only great thing came at desert- rose ice cream is sublime.
But another great disappiontment- masala tea- it was just a tea bag! If that was served to me at the beginning of the meal I would have known to leave the restaurant right away.

I wish I could give this place a good review and maybe it was the chef that night, but I can't. I did do takeout and found the food to be not terribly tasty or flavorful. The Chicken Tikka Mahknee had almost no tang to it, the Banghen Barta was bland mush and the Vegetable Samosas were ok but more filler. The Mango Chicken and the rice were the tastiest items overall, and that's about it.

This is my boyfriend's family favorite Indian restaurant in Brooklyn and I highly agree with them. The food is good and they can accommodate to your taste. Their chicken tikka masala is very good, as well as their cream of broccoli. The parking is the worst part of this place.

I am not an expert on Indian food. All is know is that I had a delicious meal with the most incredible rice. There was a lot of food and it was all excellent. I went on a Monday evening and it wasn't crowded at all. Service was great. You have to go downstairs to use the bathroom.

I have been going to this restaurant for over a decade and it never ceases to please me. The prices are always fair and have gone up very little over the years, despite the growth in the neighborhood. They offer a small but good selection of beer and wine from India, and their cuisine can please the most spice-averting palates of those American friends of yours who claim to not like Indian food. The service has always been exemplary and very attentive, but then again they know me for forever!

I was at India Passage this week to celebrate my birthday. I was there once before and the food is great. Listen to the waiter, his suggestions are excellent. For appetizers try vegetable samosas and chicken wings. Chicken tikka was an excellent entree choice and chopped salad was tangy and delicious. Desert is rosehip ice cream or mango ice cream, i never had such delicious desert. The only drawback is when they are busy, like yesterday, the service falls around average and you need to catch the waiter to get water or soda or pretty much anything else and the music is a little loud. Other than that, for $30 person you will have one of the best meals and that included a bottle of wine.

It was my first time to dine at an Indian Restaurant and this one just blew my mind. The food was excellent and the service equally good. It is indeed a romantic and beautiful place to have your dinner in peace! I was totally impressed. The ice cream at the end of the meal was a surprise and I loved it.

My husband and I have been to numerous Indian restaurants over the years, many of which were located in Manhattan and highly recommended. It is well worth the trip to Brooklyn to dine at this hidden gem of a restaurant. This place has become our "gold standard" for restaurant evaluations -- consistently excellent food prepared under the ever watchful eye of the owner. The ambiance and service are simply superb. We highly recommend this restaurant -- a must go destination.

Went around 9PM before a movie with a friend. Started with veg samosas, which were not overly fried or greasy. After having the table cleared and recieving fresh warm plates, we shared the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Chicken and Lentils. The chicken was very tender and moist in general. The Tikka Masala was well seasoned and not overly heavy with cream or seasoned with tomato. The lentils were light and cooked well. Not once did our water glasses go empty, as the service was outstanding. One of the top Indian places I have ever been to, and probably the best for service.

I've tried many different Indian restaurants in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan ranging from the expensive to the cheap bargains...and out of all of them, this place wins hands down for cuisine. I've frequented this place and everytime the food is great. If you're a meat eater, try the mixed grill of two types of Chicken, two types of Lamb and grilled shrimp, served on a sizzling platter with onions and peppers. The Chicken Tikka is so moist, plump, seasoned so well and simply divine (you don't need any extra sauces to get this well marinated chicken down. The soft naan bread is heaven with there spicy, creamy sauce that's served on the side. And they finish your meal off with mango and rosehip ice cream...a really clean way to finish of this rich meal. Warning Service is decent, but it takes forever to get the check.
