This is our go to place for the best East Indian cuisine. We've had the pleasure of eating there since it opened. The small atmosphere is quiet and welcoming. Food is served promptly and can be customized for your taste i.e. level of heat. It has definitely spoiled us. Eating in other such restaurants here and out of town just do not compare on any level as far as taste, service, and atmosphere. Don't miss this one!
This restaurant is a family fun place
with fantastic family recipes that are always scrumptious.
The service is very friendly and efficient. The vegetarian menu is very long and the meat dishes all fall in specific categories including lamb dishes besides the chicken, beef and pork categories.
The sauces include masala, korma, and vindaloo and they are all authentic. The restaurant itself is very cozy with music and decor from India and the over all experience is very homey. I love this place and the Thali combination plates will help the undecided person sample several dishes at the same time. There are several combination plates to choose from. One will feast in this place and will never go away unsatisfied. I love it!
I've been visiting this restaurant since 1995, and every visit has always been consistently wonderful. The quality of the food is second to none. They're always good, and the service is always excellent. Nothing on their menu is a disappointment. I highly recommend the chicken tikka masala...and the rice pudding for dessert.
Wonderful sophistication in the spices, especially the tandori chicken and the vegetarian korma. Please NEVER go to the route of so many great Indian restaurants who at some point decide to substitute their unique seasonings with salt. This has been the downfall of too many establishments.
If you want authentic East Indian cuisine, India Kitchen offers the best in all of NM hands down. Nowhere else compares. Take your time reviewing the full menu of delectables and ask your waiter/waitress for explanations to appreciate the differences in sauces and preparations. My best experiences have been with friends, when we order several dishes to share and sample among the table. You'll want to come back for more, and more.
We've been eating regularly @ India Kitchen since 1986 and the food is always fantastic. It's on par with indian restaurants in the United Kingdom!
Can't wait to get back to ABQ for more of India Kitchen. When I'm in Albuquerque, I will *always* eat at India kitchen at least once and I will sometimes call for a takeout order of Aloo Parantha. My husband loves their Bahrta. My favorite is probably their Aloo Gobi, but I also love their Sag and I can't go there without getting an order of Parantha. If you want Indian Food, you want India Kitchen.
Best food in town!.
This charming " hole in the wall" indian restaurant has been family owned, and operated for almost 30 years, now if that doesn't say something about their overall quality, im not sure what will.
My family and I have been eating at india kitchen my whole life,( literally) and i think it is one of Albuquerque's best kept secrets. Although it may be a little hard to find it is totally worth it! The food there is excellent, not to mention they are more than happy to cater to just about any dietary restriction imaginable ( vegan, gluten free, any type of allergy, spice level, etc) The menu is filled with reasonably priced vegetarian dishes, and a variety of meat dishes. The owners, as well as the staff are very friendly. The service is always fast, and wonderful! If you live in albuquerque, and enjoy indian food, this is the perfect place for you!
Sad excuse for Indian cuisine!.
The food had everything except for taste... They used stale oil to fry pappads and the food did not have any spice, salt and it was less than amateurish. I'm not a good cook by any scale, but I'm sure I can cook better. Avoid this place... remove it from your GPS's POI if you can. I would rate it less than 1 if it was possible!
If you want Indian food please find another place, if not 'Stay hungry my friend!'
India Kitchen is the best and josh69 is bogus..
The India Kitchen restaurant is the best there is in Albuquerque with food that is made in a style different than the food in the larger Indian restaurants that all seem to have cooks
coming out of the same indian crusine school.
India Kitchen has a chief who obviously loves
cooking family style receipies in a family style
restaurant straight out of India. I have eaten saag paneer, dals, and gulab juman in India and this place absolutely serves the most authentic
that I have ever eaten in this town.
