Best Indian Restaurant in Albuquerque

India Kitchen was the first Indian restaurant in Albuquerque, and theres a good reason it’s still going strong in it’s 33rd year. It’s simply the BEST IN THE CITY! My husband and I dine there at least once a week and have been regulars there for more than 18 years. Why? The food is not only excellent, it’s extremely healthy, so we feel really good about eating there so frequently.

The atmosphere is especially nice—homey and comfortable and lovingly decorated with art from India. The owners, Ajay and Rajul Gupta, are kind and caring and graciously accommodate any dietary needs. Ajay cooks everything no salt/no fat for us, which is very much appreciated. His knowledge of spices is simply incredible!

We almost always order their delicious vegetarian mulligatawny soup and garlic nan to start our meal and did so again this past Wednesday. Our soup was followed by the arrival of our dinner plates, which always include rice, papadum and yogurt & chutney. For entrees we chose strawberry masala with fish (salmon), alu saga (potatoes & spinach), and scallop eggplant. We always order 3 entrees so we can take some home for another meal. Everything was so tasty it was hard not to finish it all on the spot.

For dessert we enjoyed the half combo we order most often: Rajul’s carrot pudding, rice pudding, mango frozen yogurt, and mango sorbet, along with steaming mugs of Indian spiced tea. Wonderful! Beer and wine are available and are very reasonably priced.

I cannot recommend India Kitchen more highly. My husband and I consider it our very favorite restaurant.

YUM

We have been going to India Kitchen since it opened over 20 years ago. The excellence of its food and atmosphere has been unsurpassed by ANY other in town or out of town. We choose to go here for celebrations or just a light dinner of soup and naan. Do not miss the desserts- so so delicious! Honestly we have NEVER been disappointed by our meals.

good but not great

this restaurant offers the similar food from india palace, but of less quality, check out the curry chicken. indians eat chicken all the time and this reflects the quality of the restaurant. it is more stiff here than those in india palace…

A food lover from Atlanta, GA tried Yesterdaves Grill, liked it, and rated it . They liked the food, liked the service, and liked the ambiance.

Pros
Gum chewing hostesses. And balloon guy. Soda boy made incredible shakes. Food was Incredible. Servers would follow each other in a train and sing. Neat place! All the employees really got along and the ambience was electrifying.

Tips
  • You can take home more than leftovers after dinner. The restaurant has a small shop where you can buy Indian spices and other ingredients.
  • Try the appetizer combination platter and dessert combination platter and you'll get to sample a great cross section of dishes for less money.
  • This place is surprisingly busy on weekend nights, so call ahead and make a reservation if you can.
