Top tier Indian

Buffet had many vegan options. The waitress was very helpful and understanding and pointed out every item that did not contain animal products. The chickpeas in the masala were so soft and delicious. I really enjoyed the pakora. I was told the roti (bread) did have egg in it. Which was all I felt left out on. But did confirm you can get some made without. Highly recommend.

A quick trip to India made possible without leaving the states

Staff is extremely helpful and they have a dedicated vegan menu.

Pros: Naam Bread, Samosa, Curry

Cons: Small location , Buffet could use a few more vegan options

The Most Pathetic & Rude customer service in Restaurant Business in USA.

It was my 1st visit here, upon celebration of my Wife's Birthday, we got Insulted by server named 'Akruthi' in front of all Guests.
We reached to restaurant by 7:30 PM, got seated by 8:00 PM, and order served by 8:30 to 8:45 PM. Up on re-ordering some food by 9:00 PM, we got informed that Kitchen is closed by 9:00.
So 1st issue is, even-though we just started our Dinner in past 20 minutes or so, we were not informed that Kitchen was closing soon in case or reordering any food. Upon asking server (Akruthi) why we were not told that they were closing Kitchen in case if we need to order more,
this is how sever-Akruthi responded with insulted arguing back very arrogently 'Didn't you see our Time sign out side!' in front of all Guest. She was talking to us as like we were there for FREE food and that would not be acceptable by any Customer. I already had ordered food for over $100 and paid in full without any argument(have attached receipt here as well).
I kept on trying to reach out to responsible Manager(Rubi)/owner after that evening over the phone for a week, every day, to discuss the same, but they kept on ignoring coming to phone and didn't want to talk to me, telling they already know what happened and it was Customer's fault who missed behaved with their Server-Akruthi. (Pure example of Nepotism run by Management).
Seems like Whole Management has neither respect nor value for Customer if customer comes across any issue under their services.
You Go to restaurant to spend some good time with your Friends & Family, but not to ruin your time and to insult yourself in front of Group of known-unknown people.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND going to this Restaurant.

Pros: you will receive poor customer service, Server-Akruthi insults customers

Cons: Do not go if you like not to be insulted by Staff

Eat Here! Die Happy!

Having eaten at literally hundreds of Indian restaurants all over North America, I can't remember ever having such wonderful food as at Passage To India in Wichita, Ks of all places.

Anytime I know I am heading through Wichita my mouth starts to water and I start to fixate on the wonderful favors I will soon be eating. My journey with Indian food began in my early 20s... My oldest daughters first "ethnic food" was Indian food. Both of them continue to think of passage to India as their favorite food...

How to begin? The most simple pleasures are always an excellent way to begin your emotional connection... A smile... A simple piece of bread... Nan... Imagine every bite of bread you eat as being baked just for you... Prepared in an 800°F wood fired charcoal clay oven (tandoor).

A warm cup of intricate Chai Masala or a frozen Mango lassi

Next imagine delicate puff pastries filled with savory potatoes onions and peas and spice... Complex yet simple and familiar... Drizzle home made sweet tamarind fruit or spicy mint and yoghurt chutneys. (I recommend a mix of both)

Next the main course.

For the carnivore - for the food adventurous might I suggest lamb Karachi or goat roganjosh... But for the most luxurious luscious delectable (I could go on) order the Chicken Tiki Masala... Order it spicy or mild, and your mouth will thank you, and kindly request more and more...

Vegetarians?? Navaratan Korma... "9 gems" might just convert me from carnivorism to vegetarianism... If that doesn't then the palak paneer certainly will...

Desert? Yes please! "I'll have more chicken tiki masala, and an order of garlic naan!"

Passage to India: First Impression

Cons: I detected none. I must preface this review, however, with 3 important factors that shaped my experience:
1) I have eaten at Passage to India only once
2) I ate in the early evening on a weeknight
3) I visited as a vegetarian - so maybe I should leave a second review based on a vegan perspective!

I enjoyed the relaxing ambient lighting and spacious, comfortable booth seating. The waiter acted professional. I found them polite and hands-off (we concentrated mostly on the buffet), which I prefer to hovering waitstaff. As for the food offerings, the omnivore and I found satisfaction with the selection! I adore curry and also like to eat light and low-calorie, whereas my date for the evening likes heavy, meaty foods. The fact that we both enjoyed ourselves suggests its versatility as a dining establishment. Overall, I would recommend dining there and believe that it would work for a date, business meeting, and family gathering place (though I did not pay any attention to whether they had child friendly - I mean, bland and generic - options).

Pros: wide selection, professional setting, spicy options

On my first visit, the manager told me that since everything is made fresh to order, they can leave cream out of all their veggie entrees! Tasty, authentic food, great service, and awesome wine & mixed drink prices. Try the lychee & vodka!

Pros: Vegan baignan bartha, Fast, friendly service, Good drink prices
