Reviews for India Star

Best Indian food in the Des Moines metro! My husband and I had a date night at India Star and we were so happy with our meal. We went on a Monday night so it wasn't busy. Our wait staff was attentive and nice. We had lamb biryani, daal makhani, naan and garlic naan, veg simosas, papadams, and pistachio kulfi. This is our go to dinner at any Indian restaurant, and we were delighted. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed our meal and my husband feels the same.

Don't expect your pick up order on time if you come here. Was told my order would be ready in 40 minutes and I waited 25 minutes after that time before giving up on an order for just one person. I won't be back and recommend going to Lzaza instead.

I don't understand some of the terrible ratings on this restaurant. We ordered chicken Makhani, lamb vindaloo, garlic naan, and mango lassi. They were very superb. No it's not a fancy dining restaurant. But I honestly think that some of the horrible ratings come from people being racists. Highly recommend this place.
