Though located in the heart of DuPont Highway's restaurant and shopping Mecca, Flavor of India is kind of hidden in an older Super 8 hotel (formerly a Ramada then a local place called Lake Side Inn then the Red Carpet Inn And Suites.. what the?).

Their feature is the buffet (lunch is $8 11am-3pm and dinner is available 4-9pm for $10). Unfortunately we arrived at about 3:15pm so we missed both buffets... Lucky for us the menu is diverse and the food flavorful, though not as great a bargain as the buffets. I had the sizzling chicken tikka (served on a hot iron plate with lime, onions, and peppers with rice) for about $12 and my friend, Laura, had the "super, super yummy" lamb rogan josh also for about $12. We had naan on the side for just $2 and it was very tasty. The waiter was friendly and eager, but pretty scarce at this odd hour of the day as we were the only customers and he was prepping for dinner. He did allow us to try some of the chai tea and tasty desserts that were still out from the lunch buffet. The restaurant is neat and clean, and has been open since about March 2005. I'll give it 4/5 stars, but it could move up if I ever get the chance to try the buffet.

In 2008 this restaurant won the Delaware Today readers choice award for best downstate Delaware Indian Restaurant.
