The food here is absolutely delicious, however if you want to order pick up in this time, make sure not to do it too last minute. They are very popular and I'm sure its overwhelming with the influx of online orders.

We stopped by India House last night and were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was amazing, he explained and recommended choices on the menu. Every course of our meal down to the Garlic Naan was perfect. We are from out of town and live in a town (Chattanooga) that is a Mecca for the culinary delights. The India House in our book scores 5 stars for cleanliness, 5 stars for politeness, 5 stars for quality and value for what you get, and 5 stars for overall experience. We would recommend this particular site for anyone who loves new tastes and experiencesBravo Indian HouseTony & Krisie

Ordered food online, the restaurant was closed by the time I arrived, even though the order was paid for and I arrived at the requested time. The restaurant did not even bother to call to say they were closing.Edited:Thanks for you response. I placed the order at the 998 S Clinton Ave, Rochester, NY 14620 at 7:53 pm on 9/24 through Postmates (order #191). Postmates sent me a text that the order would be ready for pickup one hour later. I arrived at the restaurant just after 9 pm. I was not refunded for the order. Maybe there was a miscommunication between Postmates and the restaurant?

My wife and I dined in at the S Clinton location and it was one of the most enjoyable dinners we've experienced. The server was incredibly friendly with a great sense of humor. The food was delicious and we need to go back to try everything else on the menu.

This was my go to place and I still love it but for the last two times I ordered I wasn’t happy. The food didn’t have that Indian taste it use to have it was bland and naan taste stale not fresh last time I had expired yougurt desert. I still love this place but it wasn’t worth the money this time sorry

The food is a joke to Indian cuisine. Tried it twice. And then I read the following article from the local newspaper says it all. There are much better Indian restaurants around, like Thali of India or Raj Mahal who have better food. Take it from a fellow Indian and stay healthy. https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2019/02/25/india-house-restaurant-rochester-ny-clinton-ave-closed-health-code-violations-inspections-suspended/2985982002/

This place is unbelievable - every single dish my boyfriend and I have tried has been more amazing than the last. The spice levels are perfect, the flavors are delicious. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!

The food was OK. The samosas were pretty tasty when dipped in the sauces. The food came with a nice big serving of rice but I was a little disappointed with the veggie vindaloo. Not spicy at all. Everything was just a little bland.

The chicken tikka masala is ALWAYS great here. I love it! It's always been ready on time and the people are pleasant that I've interacted with. One of my go-tos.

Among the worst food I have ever had in my life. You would do better buying frozen Indian food from Aldi. Chicken is among the driest I have ever tasted. Rice is obviously frozen and thrown in a microwave. Naan bread tastes like cardboard.

Menu stated nan was included with orders and this did not happen. The 3 dishes we ordered were good. The person who brought our food out from the kitchen and bagged it was not wearing a mask!

India House Victor knocks it out of the park every time. Thank you for continued service and fantastic quality, especially during this tough time.

Food is always great! My only complaint is that for the pricing they should definitely give you more meat portions. Other than that it's always a pleasant experience!

Always have loved this place! Been coming here for years. Best Indian food in Rochester. Hands down.

This review is for the grocery store only. Surprisingly decent for within city limits! Decent assortment of rice, dal, and spices. Frozen food selection had some things several years expired, though. But it's within walking distance, so one does what one can.

Usually this place is a solid 4 out of 5, heck even a 4.5 out of 5, but I have to give it a 3 because of inconsistency overall. Often the portion sizes on delivery are inconsistent, including the naan size. Today I ordered my go to (Kadai Chicken) and naan. The chicken and sauce were great, but the naan looked to be at least a day old and over cooked. It was thin, dry, and hard, and while it didn't taste poorly, it was a let down. I would still recommend this place to anyone looking for a solid comfortable bite to eat.

Sorry to say, but India House has seen better days. They are clearly struggling and really need to reinvent themselves. I will not pick on the many little issues with their appearance and upkeep, but confine my review to their food, which is so so at best. They had one outstanding curry on the buffet, a mushroom masala that was perfectly seasoned and Indian hot. Their naan and onion baji were also acceptable. But the remaining dishes were bland or watery. And they only offer 2/3 the variety of Royal of India, Thali, Tandoor, or Raj Mahal. I truly wish India House the best and hope they can find the resources to build themselves into a restaurant worthy of the competition. For now, the drive out to Henrieatta where the better places are is worth it.

What has happened to the India House? This place used to be a standard in Rochester and a place where one could have consistent good food and service, it appears to no longer be the case. Today the place was empty at one o'clock. The food was cold, bland and not even mediocre and the service was worse. We were lucky to get a glass of water and the sole waitress did not check in once to see if we needed anything. She came by only to remove our plates after placing our bill on the table. What if we wanted to go back for a second helping? It is a buffet afterall! Nice way to make your customerrs feel welcomed. I will personally not go back to the India House, the service, the food and the overall quality of this restaurant is poor at best. It is tired, worn and needs to be put out to pasture. India House is an example of resting upon one's laurels.

Fave source for great Indian food. In the neighborhood. Employees professional courteous personable and fun! I always have the same meal: Chicken Vindaloo and poori?

Food was delicious! Quick service. Weirdly empty for a Friday night... Why isn't everyone eating dinner here??
December 2019 by Chris S.
Had a great dinner here tonight. Have had the lunch buffet here before, but I don't think a restaurant should be judged on a buffet. I got the Rogan Josh and it's the best I've had in Rochester since I moved here six years ago.

Delicious food! Probably the best Indian food in Rochester. You should get dinner here.

Such a great place to eat authentic Indian food, tasty buffet and great respectful waitress.

Love there food. There is a reason they are the oldest indian restaurant in Rochester and still open.

Rest was empty at 5pm. Waitress cold and indifferent. All by herself. Service was slow. She ignored a African-American who came in. Appeared to be a customer. Dishes are pricey. Food spicy, but to be expected. I would not return.
