India Palace Nashua NH--excellent food

A plug for our local Indian restaurant--in an unassuming strip mall on Amherst St: We had a great chicken tikka masala and lamb shahi korma Friday night--the sauces were rich and complex. The room is a cut above the usual cheesy Indian restaurant decor and the service is good.

    1. The name is India Palace. I've eaten there several times and agree with 'whs' assessment.

      1. There's another place in Nashua, I think it's called "Meeman."

        It has a terrific lunch buffet.

        This place is attached to an Indo-Pak grocery store called "Dar Groceries".

          Yes, it's down near the Mass border across from the Pheasant Lane Mall. The next time I go to Trader Joe's in Tyngsboro I'll have to try it.

            Mehmaan does have a great lunch buffet. India Palace does too. Both are under $10.

              I know Trader Joe's is near Mehmaan but if I were you, I would take the extra 15 minutes and go over to India Palace on Amherst Street - it's the far better choice - you absolutely will not be disappointed, whereas you might be at Mehmaan. I can't believe my good fortune at living only 10 or 15 minutes from India Palace!

          2. Well, we went back to Mehmaan yesterday for the lunch buffet and I must admit, it wasn't as good as the first time (last Spring). They had run out of a few items and were slow to replace them (12:45 PM). The tandori chicken, although tasty, tasted like it was leftover and a bit on the dry side. The place just didn't have the wow appeal over us as it had on out last visit. We may have hit it on a bad day.

            We will definitely try India Palace on our next visit.

            On a plus note: there is a pretty good Indian market next door to Mehmaan that sells spices, tea and whatnot.

            1. Don't even bother with Mehmann or whatever it's called - it's nowhere near as good as India Palace. I go to the one in Nashua on Amherst Street as often as I can - it's absolutely awesome - bengain bartha is the best I've ever had - just wonderful. I've eaten there several times with friends and tasted many different dishes and they are all good. They use the finest white meat chicken I have encountered in an Indian restaurant. Go see for yourself!
