India Palace

India Palace no longer has its stunning (if confusing to find) location at the top of a tattered Howard Johnson’s, overlooking the lights of Lambert’s runway. It now occupies the former home of Standard Brewing Company, which explains the industrial, modern vibe. Still, what’s important is the food, which remains as good as ever. Lamb vindaloo is the signature dish, but you simply can’t go wrong anywhere on this menu. Kids menu; lunch buffet. $$. Open daily for lunch and dinner.

Restaurant Details

Is there a less likely location for a great Indian restaurant than an eleventh-floor former tiki bar that looks out over airport runways? The awesome view isn't the only thing to recommend India Palace. The popular daily lunch buffet offers fantastic chicken tandoori and other favorites, frequently replenished. The lengthy dinner menu excels at both fiery vindaloo and noble rogan josh. Chicken, lamb and seafood dishes abound, but adventurous diners should consider trying one of several goat entrées. Numerous vegetarian dishes are also available, and all of the little things so essential to Indian cuisine - like naan and rice - are topnotch.
