This website contains a partial list of Indian Restaurants in or near cities that I have visited over the past few years. The name, address, telephone number, recommendation status and a website link where available is provided for each restaurant.

Before a visit to an area of the country, I will often use the web to find the location of a number of Indian Restaurants local to where I will be staying. Once I have reached my destination, I will usually use the local yellow pages phone book to add to the list of Indian Restaurants. I try to dine at as many Indian Restaurants in the area as fits within my itinerary.

Do you live in Orange County, California? I believe I have found the BEST Indian Restaurant in all of Southern California! Although it has been listed below for quite some time, I didn't run across it until Saturday, January 26, 2008. If you are looking for a wonderful atmosphere and friendly table service, then you would be better going to Tandoor Cuisine of India in Orange, California, which is my runner up for the best Indian food in Southern California. But if your primary concern is the flavor of the food, then you can't do better than Guru Palace at 17292 McFadden Ave., Tustin, CA 92680 (714-832-9988)! Most Indian restaurants ask you when you order if you'd like your food prepared mild, medium or spicy. Guru Palace didn't ask us and we forgot to put in our request. Thus, we were afraid they would bring us Indian dishes that had dumbed down flavor to match the average American tastes as most Indian restaurans do (especially those rated highly by other reviewers!). To our surprise, their normal level of spice was right where we like it between medium and spicy. If you don't like your Indian food prepared a bit on the spicy side, I'd suggest that you request they prepare your dishes mild. Otherwise, you are going to have your food prepared with a bit more of the flavor of India than you may be accustomed. But if you want to appreciate the full flavor of the food from Guru Palace, let them prepare it just the way they normally do without dictating the spice level.

Another place that I frequent is Haveli Fine Inidan Cuise at 13882 Newport Ave Ste G, Tustin, CA 92780, 714-669-1011. They are one of the few Indian Restaurants in Southern California that features an Evening Buffet, though it is only on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Both the lunch and dinner buffets have a larger selection of items than most Indian Restaurants in Southern California and the food is quite good.

I have to make a special mention of Swagat Indian Cuisine. In my opinion, Swagat Indian Restaurants are the best of all the Indian Restaurants that I have tried throughout the nation. Most of my judgements have been based on the lunchtime buffets that are offered by most Indian Restaurants usually between 11:30am and 2:30pm. The Swagats that I have tried offer the lunch buffet 7 days a week and had one of the greatest diversity of items, often including some unique items rarely found in other Indian Restaurants. I found Swagat's buffet to have the most intense Indian flavor and spice without being too spicy to enjoy. The buffet price is reasonalbe. Here are the locations of Swagat Indian Restaurants:

Runner up for my opinion of one of the best Indian Restaurants in the nation is Kaveri Madras Cuisine, 1148 Fulton Ave, Sacramento, California, 916-481-9970. This restaurant has a buffet 7 days a week for both lunch and dinner. The buffet has an extensive number of items and the flavor and spice rival that of Swagat.
