I've lived in India and People's has the most authentic Indian food I've had in Pgh. The portions have become significantly decreased in the last few months, so I don't go as often, but still best taste for the money.

  • “Very expensive and quantity was quite less. I am an Indian and I love Indian food but their food gave me hard time in digestion. I suffered for 2 days. I wound't order again when I can have whole buffet at Tamarind at less than half price. I ordered chicken curry, the one at Coriander Restaurant on Murray Ave is yummy but this one was so-so in taste, mostly disappointing. I also ordered Samosa, I find the poorly fried samosas of Bombay Mart better than these ones. Then I ordered tikki, aloo patty, really disappointed, it looked several weeks old reheated in microwave. I know from 24 years of experience how fresh tikki tastes like. I like Indian restaurants in this order: Uddupi, Tamarind, Coriander, Indian Carts at Pitt, even Yuva India and All India more than this one. But definitely it's better than Prince of India, where food smells like 2 week old and there is absolutely no taste in the food.”

  • “I would say this is a 3.5 star review. I ordered two vegetarian dishes and naan baked with ground lamb. Each entree was in a pint container that was 2/3rds full. I asked for a six in spiciness. I was going to go higher as I like spicy food but a six I found very spicy. I would have rated the food more of an 8. For me a 7 would have been inedible. I got a quart container of basmati rice, which was ice cold. The food itself was good, but w/ the delivery charges and a tip, it was nearly $35. For take out, it was not a lot of food for the price. We each had our entree and there were no leftovers, which is pretty much unheard of. ”

  • “I'm normally down with any Indian I can get on delivery, but have to admit I felt over charged and under served with People's. Not a lot of the main dishes, and even less rice. At at least $10 per dish, I expected more (especially when you can get their entire buffet for like $8).”

  • “I ordered chicken tikka masala with a spicyness level of 6/10. It came out red hot and was nothing like the creamy tomatoey dish I was expecting. For what it was everything seemed to be good quality, I was just disappointed. Also ordered garlic naan which seemed undercooked as it was a bit doughy still.”
