BLOG, Places to Eat in Provo

India Palace in Downtown Provo, Utah

By Katerina Gasset

My youngest son turned 21 years old. I have a tradition in my family to take the adult birthday kid out to lunch or dinner. He chose dinner at the India Palace in Downtown Provo, Utah. 

What a great choice! We love the different Indian regional foods from around India. Curry is one of our favorites! 

Since turmeric is so healthy, we can indulge in the many flavors! 

There is a variety of healthy and low fat options on the menu at India Palace in Provo, Utah. 

Many people in India are vegetarian. This is a great place to eat out on ‘Meatless Mondays’. 

Since Indian cuisine does not include any beef or pork, or cuts from a cow. Cows are sacred in India. 

There are delicious lamb options. Lamb is on my superfoods list for my body’s biome. Lamb is also expensive even at Costco. I choose lamb entrées at Indian restaurants! This way I get my lamb quota in for a very reasonable price. 

India Palace serves foods from different regions of India. It is a cultural experience to try out the different regional tastes and spices. 

We went at lunchtime. India Palace has lunch special price. Their lunch special is filling. It goes until 2:30 p.m. Note: their times and prices vary, so always check first. 

My son ordered the lunch special. It included two flavors of rice, 3 entrée options of different curries, and fresh homemade naan. 

I will tell you… their Naan is AMAZING! I ordered their sweet Peshwari Naan. It was heavenly! 

We ordered an extra portion of the garlic naan and the sweet naan. 

I ordered the Lamb Vindaloo. I love potatoes in curry bases. It was delicious. It came with a large order of their cardamon basmati rice. 

Tip: when preparing or eating Indian food, you want to choose basmati rice. When preparing or eating Thai food, you want to choose jasmine rice.

Review - 5 stars 

When we went, there were only a few patrons in the restaurant due to the time of the day we were there.

Our server was attentive. Cultural differences with Asian and Indian customer service may take a little getting used to, especially if you eat at Latin restaurants where the service is super attentive and loving:) So be patient. Be kind. Learn about the cultures of the places you go to eat if they are different than yours. 

I will go back in the evenings and let you know how the service is in the evenings during dinner hours. Please leave me a comment with your experience.

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
