Located right in the heart of southern Texas, it’s no secret that San Antonio is home to some of the best Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine in the entire U.S. And while there’s no denying the city’s love for these South-of-the-border flavors, there are also some great Indian restaurants for those with more adventurous taste buds. Whether you’re looking for your basic Chicken tikka masala or more exotic, spicy curries, make sure you check out these 5 Indian restaurants in the San Antonio area:
As one of the most popular Indian restaurants in the city, Bombay Hall has everything you’re looking from an Indian restaurant. And though they specialize in Northern Indian entrees and Tandoori (clay oven) dishes, their menu has a little something for everybody – including what many San Antonians claim as the best naan in the city! Stop by on a weekday during their lunch buffet to sample a variety of dishes, or try one of their daily dinner specials.
2. India Palace 8474 Fredericksburg Rd. San Antonio, TX 78229
If you’re looking an Indian lunch or dinner buffet, India Palace might have the best in San Antonio. Served from 11 am – 3 pm for lunch and 3 – 10 pm for dinner, diners can choose from a wide variety of freshly prepared Northern Indian dishes that change daily. If the buffet isn’t your style, however, diners can also choose a dish from their comprehensive menu – where every dish is available for takeout as well. India Palace is only a few blocks from Bombay Hall, so stop by and compare them both!
Not to be confused with India Palace, India Taj Palace is located in Northern San Antonio in Hollywood Park – just a short drive from our Stone Oak Village apartments. Open 11 am – 10 pm 7 days a week with a full buffet, it’s the go-to Indian spot on the North side of the city. Apart from their accommodating hours and huge selection of expertly prepared Indian cuisine, Indian Taj Palace also offers free delivery (minimum amount required) within 8 miles of their location. Whether you’re looking to hit the buffet or stay at home, Indian Taj Palace offers the best of both worlds.
Another great spot worth trying in the North Central area of the city is India Oven. Offering a lunch buffet from 11 am – 2:30 pm, this smaller restaurant has a more quaint feeling than some of the others on this list. When serving dinner from 5 – 10 pm, patrons can dine by candlelight while they enjoy their freshly prepared, authentic Indian dishes. Some of their specialties include their vegetarian dinner, saag paneer, and their wickedly hot chicken vindaloo.
Located just off Northwest Loop 410 and the McDermott Freeway, Simi’s is easily accessible from all of San Antonio’s top attractions. Combine that with a tasty, 7-day lunch buffet and á la carte dinner, and Simi’s becomes the perfect spot to grab Indian when you’re in hurry. The food is always great, the service is even better, and they offer a variety of different beers and wines – including several Indian beers.
