      MOzen at Mandarin Oriental if you are on the strip and have a good sized wallet is fabulous. . If you are willing to go divey and local I love Mt Everest .. its in an old Burger King about 2 miles away from the strip and the food is delicious.

      Origin India is just ok imho. it is fancified indian food in a strip mall.. for the money and the portions I was not impressed. If you are going to spend that kind of money for indian get the nice view and fabulous service at MOzen. and then go upstairs for an amazing view and a 18.00 drink at the Sky Bar.

        I used to go to Namaste . but Melque the owner recently closed to persue her singing career.

        Mt. Everest is up just a bit on Sahara ave in front of the Mariana's Market (Latin market). Good samosas.

          I have tried Mt. Everest and India Palace. I was not impressed with either one. I have also eaten at India Masala in the Riviera Hotel's food court. I thought it was very good. Last year its owners opened a full service restaurant by the same name on E. Flamingo, not far from the Strip. I plan to give that one a try when I'm there next in May.

            Sam - we tried India Masala in October 2012 - here are my TR notes;

            This relatively new restaurant is an upscale offshoot of the India Masala located in the Riviera food court. It is a decent size and nicely appointed. We shared vegetarian and tandori thalis that included a variety of vegetarian entrees and sides, pappadum with chutneys, tandori chicken, basmati rice, naan, chicken tika, and rice pudding. Everything was pretty good, but I thought prices were high in relation to the quantity of food we received. Next time I will opt for the luncheon buffet or order regular entrees.

              Thanks, Westie. Maybe I'll just try the buffet there on my next trip in May.

            India Oven at Sahara/Paradise and Saffron at Craig/Tenaya are our favorites.

              My favourite is Mint Indian Bistro. Having been to India a few times, I can tell you that they do southern Indian dishes, such as dosa and their Andhra curry, exceptionally well, but I've yet to have a bad dish here.

              Their lunch buffet is also above average.

              On the other hand, I found Origin India to be the most overpriced, overrated Indian food I've ever had.
