The food is very tasty, I really enjoyed the rice with the chicken masala on top alongside the mango chutney. And there deep fried chicken dipped in some mild sweet sauce has a very satisfying touch. The waiter who was a lady, she was very

Delicious Buffet. I am never sure which entree to order, but I love getting a mix of all of the various dishes to try. Wonderful food.

India Palace is always a good place to eat. They have a very good Indian buffet, with fresh and appealing dishes. It's possible to eat vegetarian stuff here-which is rare in Salem.

This is some of the best Indian food I've had in Oregon. Downtown Salem can be hard to navigate, but this place is worth the trip. Prices are awesome (especially for lunch!), and the food is perfectly spiced. The room is beautiful, too!

I've been eating at IP for the last five years and have always loved the food. The Tiki Masala, a very traditional Indian dish, is rich and savory with tender pieces of meat (I prefer chicken). The beef vindaloo has a rich tamato sauce and can be spiced up to an intense level if you request it. There are a variety of rice dishes that are always served warm and fluffy and most have a subtle saffron flavor that compliments the meat dishes nicely. For the vegetarians they have great dumplings and peas paulo (sp?) and the Indian tea is a warm nutty accompaniment to almost any meal. I love it, I've gorged myself there quite often, make sure you order the buttery garlic naan to wipe-up all of your leftover sauce because it's not worth leaving on the plate.

Service at the restaurant is some servers treat you like a longtime customer and good friend, that's the best. Other times they are mildly gaunt and uninvolved. Get to know the crew and request one of the good servers, though the food will make up for it, if you need company take a friend.

Gotta love Downtown Salem, cheers to diverse dining!!!

Pros: Meats, Sauces, Veggies

Cons: Retro Decor, Gaunt Service

This was by far the worst Indian food I have ever had. They forgot to add flavor to the food. It all tasted the same and the buffet had a tiny selection. It was not worth the money and I would not go back. Save yourself the time and money. Eat somewhere else. Nothing was even remotely spicey. I have no idea how this place stays open. It barely tasted like indian food.

I've been a customer here for ten years. The Indian food here is the best. I moved to Portland recently and have been to several Indian Restaurants here, and so far none are better than India Palace, although India Grill was close. Only negative thing is they have one waiter who tried to rip me off once, but I forgave the restaurant for this one waiter's deceit.

India Palace serves up the perfect lunch special for people who don't want too much to eat but would like variety. The $3.95 take out lunch including drink comes in a 1/2 size box and is a wonderful deal. There is a lot of selection at the buffet and a person can have good variety without over eating.

As one of the few inexpensive ($5.95 for buffet, $3.95 to go, $$$ for dinner) places left in the Salem downtown area, the India Palace is deserving of its praise for good reasonably priced food despite horrible phone manners.

The atmosphere is quaint and dark, accomodating of both big and small parties. Subtle Indian background music and the odor of burning incense are not distracting while sampling the many varieties this place has to offer.

The lunch buffet may be small (items change daily), however, one will still get his/her money's worth. In addition I'm told they are expanding the buffet to add almost 10 additional items as of this date (May 10, 2004).

The one gripe I have is their terrible phone manners. If you are to call about hours, menu items, or prices, expect a few short answers before being hung up on by the owner.
