Star of India specializes in Northern Indian cuisine and is most likely the best restaurant in St. Cloud. They have a promising slogan - "Come to the Star of India Restaurant and allow us to virtually transport you across the seven seas to India."
As is true with most restaurants that offers lunch buffet, we have found that the food is not at its best when produced in large quantities and then laid out on a buffet table to rest and simmer. More food for the money but less quality for the taste. Best to order off the reasonably priced menu to experience what this excellent family run place is capable of. Wide range of entrees from chicken, lamb, seafood, vegetarian and beef (first Indian restaurant we've noticed that has beef!) to a large number of Curries, Tandoori, Marsalas, Kormas, Biryanis, Balti specialities and Naans. Vegetarian choices like Alu Gobi (cauliflower, potatoes & spices) and Bangan Bharta (Charcoal baked eggplant peeled and cooked with fresh tomatoes, onions, and green peas). If you're feeling festive, get the Star feast - Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Tikka, Boti Kabab and, shrimp Tandoori, Lamb or Chicken Curry and Naan.
