India cuisine on ASU campus

This fine Indian restaurant is a big hit with Arizona State University students, especially at the inexpensive, huge lunch buffet, with all-you-can eat bread and numerous vegetarian selections.

The regular dinner menu is loaded with vegetarian delights as well. Starting with the appetizers, choose from Pakoras, Samosas, Onion Bhaji, Padadum (Indian wafers), and a fresh garden salad. Or try the vegetable soup (at just $2.25, it's well worth the meager investment).

For entrees, there's a couple of rice dishes worth checking out (a Vegetable and nut delight or rice flavored with cumin, peas, and onions); and then there's numerous Indian dishes familiar to this genre: Daal Maharani (split lentils), Bengan Bhartha (eggplant), Aloo Gobhi (cauliflower with potato), Aloo Matar (potatoes, peas, onion, and tomatoes), and Bhindi Masala (Okra cooked with onions); just to name a few of the delicious, savory vegetarian treats that await.

Delhi Palace has lots of great bread, ranging from such basics as Naan and Whole Wheat to bread stuffed with such ingredients as potatoes, cauliflower, or onions.

But the most bang for your buck comes from ordering a complete vegetarian dinner, with two curry dishes, Daal Maharani, Naan bread, rice, Dessert, and beverage ($12).

Service is first-rate, just adding to what is typically a memorable experience for just about any hungry diner.

Located in a strip mall just east of ASU campus (see picture below), Delhi Palace is open 7 days a week.

Food: Excellent! Everything I have every had at Delhi Palace is phenomenal. A large portion of their menu is vegetarian dishes. You can specify how spicy you would like your food (mild, medium, or spicy) and your dish will be prepared to those specifications with the marvelous spices and flavors typical of Indian food.

Price: Great! You get a ton of food for the price. I always end up taking home a doggie bag for lunch the next day.

Atmosphere: Very good. Dehli Palace is in a strip mall by the university, but you forget all about that once you step inside. The walls are decorated with pictures depicting scenes from India, traditional Indian clothing and shoes and all sorts of Indian items abound. Indian music is always playing. Mirrors along the wall make the space appear larger than it is for an open, airy feeling.

Service: Excellent. The staff is always timely and attentive. My dining partner and I have often laughed that it is the restaurant-of-the-never-empty-water-glass. The staff is always at hand and cognizant of the diner's next desire.

Overall: I love dining here and would recommend it to anyone. I would recommend the complete vegetarian dinner for those who are unfamiliar with the tastes of India, as this will give you a sample of several different styles of dishes. And even if you don't think you are that hungry, order bread. The paranthas are an experience in themselves.

From University and Scottsdale Rd, go east 1/2 block and turn right into the strip mall with Kinkos copies.
