  • Always try to visit the House of India when visiting Windsor. Have tried most of the vegetarian and chicken dishes, which range from very good to excellent. I enjoy my food quite spicy, while the GF does not, and we are inevitably always both satisfied. Highly recommend!

  • Order: have tried every vegetable and chicken dish on menu

  • I've been here several times with friends as I live downtown and it is within walking distance.
    I'm consistently disappointed with the food and the service. I'm not sure what goes on in the kitchen, but last time I was there we waited over an hour for the food and we were the only 5 people in the restaurant (with no explanation or apology from the waitress, to boot).
    All the food I've tried has been pretty bland and their curries are thin and watery. Authentic Indian food is anything BUT flavourless so it is a disappointment to see them using old, frozen vegetables in the vegetable korma.
    I've given it several chances and won't go back again.

  • Order: Samosas, yellow daal, vegetable korma, garlic naan

  • Moved to Windsor recently and was on the hunt for some food. I've been here twice with my friends already and we will definitely be back! Food is addictive and so flavourful. I'm craving it right now. Alright I'm going to get me some now. Seriously.

    EDIT: After looking through some comments, let's keep in mind that most people who are angry with a restaurant go and review it poorly, I came here because I am that addicted to this stuff!

  • Order: Chicken everything, naan bread, Tandoori, bunch of lamb dishes. Everything you get is good!

  • I placed a delivery order and the girl who took the order said it will take 1 hour to receive my order. I called her after 1 hour and 15 minutes and she said the deriver is late because some roads to their restaurants are blocked and the driver needs 10 more minutes. I called again after 30 minutes and she said they are still waiting for the driver!!! I asked to speak to the owner, she said he is not there and the chief is busy and I can NOT talk!!!! I hanged up. The chief called me back and said it is not their fault, it is the fault of the delivery company! I told him I don't know the delivery company, you guys should have told me that it will take for ever to get my food. I finally received my order after 2 hours and 30 minutes and the delivery guy was very rude and disrespectful. The bottom line is: The staff, the chief and the delivery guy were all a bunch of liars and disrespectful people. Worst experience ever. My guests waited for ever for their dinner and they finally had to leave and went to have dinner at a restaurant on their own. I don't recommend this House of India restaurant at all.

  • Order: Big order (Tandoori Chicken, Curry Chicken, Curry Beef, Samosa, Chicken Tikka Masala, Lam Sag Ghosth, Lamb Paneer Ghosth...

  • What can I say about this places food other than it is amazing every time we go. Food is excellent and owners are very friendly, even gave us a tour of their kitchen and tandoori oven. Last time we were there with a party of 6 and ordered 6 different dishes and shared everything which the waiter recommended...AMAZING being able to taste all the different dishes. Going there TONIGHT so thought I had to write a review on it. See you all there!

  • Order: Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka, Lamb Rogan Josh, many other dishes, Naan, Cobra Beer

  • We ordered take out and asked for the spice level to be mild. We are Indians by the way and are used to spicy food. When we got the food..OMG it was blazing hot !! I thought it was a genuine mistake and wanted to let the restaurant know. I called them and the guy started arguing with me and said we had asked for MEDIUM. Well even if this were medium spice level..it was probably for somebody who ate chillies for a living. The guy wasn't gracious, dint even let me complete a sentence. Shame on you..

  • Order: palak paneer, naan, biryani

I agree, they have changed my dish simply because it wasn't what I thought it was. I ordered the chicken tikka, but i wanted the TIKKA MASALA -- which is the one that comes in that amazing red sauce!

  • This was not a very good experience, the lamb was to hard and most of the food tasted cold some of it tasted old and yet you would have think that they would take there time because the place wasn't much busy. Besides that the appearance was nice. I wouldn't recommend this place.

  • Order: Lamb curry, samosa, rice
