"Our party went to India House for the lunch buffet. As I had not previously tasted Indian food to a great extent, was't sure what to expect. What we found was a fairly extensive buffet with a wealth of flavors. Some dishes were spicy, some mild. There was no marking to delineate spiciness which could be an issue for some. However, no one in our party had an issue.
I may have missed a dish or two, but tried to taste a little of everything on the buffet. Not surprising, some things I liked more than others, but nothing was really objectionable.
Our server was excellent; very personable, answered questions, and took good care of us.
Overall, the experience was positive, and can see us returning again in the future.

"We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Menu seems to have more choices. Best Indian food around. Love the selection of breads. Staff is pleasant and can always explain any dish we have questions about. Tried some spicy dishes and glad they both had some good heat but did not overpower the food."

"I think the India House is very good food...but it is expensive. Most entrees are like $19 and rice doesn't come with many of the dishes that seems like it should...and it's $6 for a medium sized bowl of rice on the side! RIce should be included with the dinners - not charged separately!"

"I wish there were more restaurants like this in the farther north west suburbs. As it is, India House is a great place for lunch or dinner. Dinner is a pricier affair, with most dishes being ordered family style, so expect to order 3-5 dishes for 3-4 people. That racks up pretty quickly.
Lunch is a buffet...quantity and quality, for a reasonable price. It include dessert, traditional Indian ice cream, gulab jamun (sort of like donut holes in a honey saffron sauce) or kheer- rice pudding. Great stuff, very attentive staff."

"India House is an expensive and mediocre Indian restaurant in Schaumburg. The atmosphere at the restaurant barely exists. The food is okay but nothing special, and not worth the premium above other local Indian restaurants. We found the service, from eastern European waitresses to be acceptable. But we thought our waitress did not know much about the menu and the food being served.
The India House special platter was full of meats and fish, as well as lamb Rogan Josh, and a lenti dal. It was good and I could not eat it all. But it was also more expensive than it should have been. The staff was more than happy to package the leftovers to take home. I noticed that many people were carrying large bags of leftovers.
Overall, there are many other Indian restaurants in the Schaumburg area which provide equal or better food for lower prices and, in some cases a better experience overall"

"The India House menu is very extensive. Lots of vegetarian items and great appetizer we ordered chicken 65 which was enough for a meal. I ordered the mixed grill which was enough for two. Everyone is very attentive and we were not rushed. It easily outshines some of the more famous Indian restaurants we have tried."

"Excellent food and service! Price is a little high but you get a good amount in each dish. We had the BhelPuri for an appetizer and LOVED it! I had the Paneer Tikka Masala and my fiancé had the Chicken Chili Masala and we both loved our dishes! As always we got Naan and Basmati Rice and both were cooked great! We can't wait to go back and glad we found a nearby place with excellent Indian food!"
