  1. Anybody hear of House of India in Huntignton?

    1. The Indian in Huntington is o.k. Best places on LI are in Hicksville. I attach a link on a previous thread. If you search on Hicksville, you'll find many ideas...

        I echo Siobhan's feedback. We love indian food, and went to House of India in Huntington once. It was just ok. We haven't been back & won't. Hicksville has many, many indian restaurants, many that are delicious. I"d suggest you check out places in that area.

        1. re: Siobhan

          I had also heard that the places on LI to find good Indian Cuisine are in Huntington & Hicksville ... but surprise to me - it's not true. An Indian friend sent me to Kiran Palace in Hicksville, it was ok but it just did not have "my taste." Be adventurous, try Western Nassau (Samrat) or Kew Gardens (Baluchi). So what am I saying here? I like Indian food and I'm open to trying the lesser knowns.

        2. Kiran Palace, in the Delco Plaza at Old Country Road and Route 107 in Hicksville.

          1. Samrat, West Hempstead

            1. Samrat, on Hempstead Turnpike , in West Hempstead has an excellent chef. I find the Indian food here far superior to other Indian restaurants on Long Island.

              A buffet is available for 7 days /week.
              Try the shrimp soup for an appetizer...
              I eat here every complaints except that more of us have to support him with our business....This place was the former Taj Mahal......

                I agree. I really enjoy myself every time I dine at Samrat, Hempstead Turnpike, West Hempstead. The food is outstanding and if you don't see it on the menu, ask and they will prepare it for you. The wait staff is attentive and unobtrusive. And the owners are there every night to insure your delight. The chef is talented and consistent and DOES NOT USE GHEE. I love their tender lamb dishes & I agree with Twanya, the Shrimp Soup is a winner. Their prices are very good and easy parking. What more could you ask for?
