Redmond >Kanishka Cuisine of India
This is the best Indian restaurant and food. Its located where you may miss it but best ever. It quaint but not a dressy place.
The food is excellent and the lunch buffet gives alot of variety, that taste great too very appetizing. A must GO!
The Best Indian on the Eastside!. Wonderful Indian food. Since moving to area, we have tried quite a few Indian restaurants, and after finding Kanishka, haven't gone anywhere else. Great lunch buffet and a wonderful menu too. Our favorites: Lamb Boti Masala, Coconut Chicken (my 11-year old loves this) and Chicken Chili Tikka (great for people on low-carb diets). Do try the mango ice cream for dessert. Yummy!
Great lunch buffet.
Apparently, the vacuum problem isn't only on busy Saturday nights :)
Though the buffet is small, it is very good. The naan is fresh, there are many delicious chutneys (the tamarind is my favorite - I could eat nothing but the vegetable pakoras with tamarind chutney), vegetarian dishes, tandoori chicken, and a very small number of puddings and fruit for dessert. Unforunately, I forgot to ask for - it sounded very good from another reviews.
The food is good, and Kanishka is busy even on Sunday. We sat near the door, which no one seemed to know how to close when coming in or going out, but it wasn't too cold. If you're picky, you might want to make sure they don't seat you at a table near the door.
Overall: inexpensive, free parking, good food. I'd go back.
Great food, little ambience. The place definitely isn't the best looking inside. It's clean, but not attractive or cozy. Our table proudly displayed some award underneath the glass, twice. Our servers were not rude, and they were there when we needed them, but they were not terribly friendly. They also found it necessary to vaccuum the whole restaurant during 7:00 pm on Saturday, which I found annoying and unnecessary. But I'll stop nitpicking here. Our vegetable samosa appetizers were incredibly delicious, and I wanted to lick the crumbs off the plate. My Paneer Tikka Masala was a hearty portion, full of mild cheese and vegetables, and my husband's tandoori prawns were huge, plentiful and tasty with lots of sizzling paneer, vegetables and a tasty sauce. Service was prompt and one of the staff was kind enough to pack up extra rice for our leftovers, which I was very impressed with.
some of the best Indian food in town.
Kanishka is definitely one of the best Indian restaurants in town. Their lunch buffet offers a fantastic spread of standard Northern Indian options, all deliciously prepared, for a very reasonable price. Even the naan is quite good at lunch (unusual for buffets which often have naan that is chewy and not fresh).
Go prepared to stuff yourself, you won't be able to help it, the food is too good not to have a second or third or fourth trip to the buffet!
Search no further!. What can I say, Kanishka's is the best! The shai paneer is simply mouth watering, Tandoor chicken is crispy and with a perfect blend of spices as not to detract from the taste of the dish. They will tell you if a certain level of spiceyness will lose the flavor of the dish, their rice is Basmati with saffron, it makes your mouth water, samosa's are excellent, their Nan breads are filled with garlic, cilantro, potatoes, or onions and then baked! Chai is served brewed with milk and you may add sugar to your liking, They don't have braless college girls bouncing around as waitresses to distract you, nor do they have a posh bellevue 5 star location to open up your wallets, but what they do have is excellent food, a quiet environment and very pleasent surroundings! Eat here, you won't regret it!
My All=Time Favorite Indian Restaurant. I have been a fan of Indian food for quite a while, but I never understood how good it could be untill coming to Kanishka. The service is friendly and willing, the food is supurb, and the price is good. Kanishka is amzing!
Plentiful Selections Abound.
My wife and I dine frequently at Kanishka and have been doing so since it opened its doors about 2 years ago. I am always impressed with the consistent quality of the food and the fact that they continue to fine tune their recipes to perfection over time.
Sometimes heavy but always delicious, some of our favorites are the veggie korma, any kind of vindaloo, and the chicken tikka masala. Make sure to try their veggie samosas to start your meal off right. The buffet is a great deal too, but we enjoy their dinner best as it tends to be more flavorful when we order it with a little more chili to it.
If you haven't tried Kanishka and you like Indian food, what are you waiting for? One of the best on the Eastside.
Excellent lunch buffet.. I always went to Mayuri's for Indian lunch buffet, until I tried Kanishka!
great food, good service. The staff is very friendly - they make sure to feel you at home. Food quality is also one of the best we have ever had in this area.
