What People Are Saying About Star of India Salt Lake City
"Not many Indian restaurants make a good paneer pakora. Thank goodness the Star of India!. The vegetarian dishes (the only ones I have tried) are fresh, tasty and not loaded with fat. They do an excellent job with their breads, and the lassi is very good too. My favorites: paneer pakora (of course!!), shahi paneer, peschwari naan, and lassi. This is a family run business that has a genuine passion for creating good food - not the greasy, re-heated stuff you get at some restaurants. If you haven't tried it, give it a whirl and enjoy! Hint if you want a great value go for lunch. All you can eat for one price! We live out of Salt Lake and feel it's worth the hour and a half drive!"
" I would suggest that everyone GO THERE! What I love most about The Star of India is that they take their time to make really special, really complex, really good Indian food the way it should be. So, if you're in a hurry, opt for the lunch buffet rather than dinner. But don't get me wrong, dinner is well worth any wait you may experience. The curries at Star of India are delicious, rich and spicy, the flavors are perfectly blended and authentic. I have found that other Indian restaurants in Salt Lake City, tend to keep things mild, even when I've ordered hot. At The Star of India, if you want hot, they will give you hot, without compromising any flavor. The tandoori grilled selections are amazing, particularly the chicken and the prawns. The samosas are some of the best I've tasted anywhere, always prepared fresh. The service at Star of Indian is warm and friendly with a family-run atmosphere. The new location is spacious, welcoming and an excellent venue for large parties. I highly recommend Star of India next time you get a craving for Indian food. Whether you are are a returning customer trying the new location for the first time, or new to the restaurant, you won't be disappointed in this Salt Lake City classic!"
"Star of India, is hands down, the best Indian restaurant in the city, and as good as any I have had anywhere in the world. The restaurant is located in the same spot as the old Baba Afghan restaurant. The new owners have taken over an adjoining room, doubling the size and seating capacity of the space. Parking isn't a problem as they validate everywhere. The food is wonderful. Dishes are full flavored and prepared to any desired level of spiciness. The tandoori chicken is outstanding, as is the saag paneer. I have yet to order something I did not like. The lunch buffet is also very good, and gives you a chance to sample a large variety of the food for a low price. The service is exceptional; very friendly and warm, unlike the reception I get at other Indian restaurants I have frequented in the area. Give Star of India a try you won't be disappointed."
"While coming from England to live in Salt Lake City, one of the main things (cuisine wise) I thought I would miss out on was a great curry (bare in mind London alone has more curry houses than Calcutta and Bombay combined, as curry is the English national dish!). I was not disappointed with Star of India, and indeed it's a regular haunt for me now. The food is most definitely authentic and non-Americanized (e.g. spicy and tastes of something!)...Most of the other Indian restaurants in Utah are pretty poor by my standards I must say. If you like authentic cuisine, served by great people in a nice comfortable setting, and at a great price, get down there now!"
"One of the best restaurants we've ever experienced. The people at Star of India are fantastic people and very friendly and sincere (no phony waiters/waitresses). Eclectic atmosphere, truly a unique dining experience. Don't miss it. The food is authentic and extremely tasty. Not as Americanized as other places."
"Watching one of the exuberant musical melodramas that are part of the “Bollywood” Indian film tradition can make you hungry for the cuisine, and, in turn, dining on delicious Indian fare will put you in the mood for one of those movies. So, the pairing is perfect at Star of India, where a big screen shows Bollywood films for diners. Whether it’s an effect of the movies or the wonderful food, you may feel like breaking into song and dance at the end of the meal. "
