The Best Indian Restaurants in Carbondale

Reema’s Indian Cuisine

Reema’s Indian Cuisine offers a variety of north and south Indian dishes, including classics such as masala dosas (a thin crepe filled with spicy potatoes) and idli (a steamed rice cake with gravy). They can customize the level of spice to suit your taste so you can try a new dish without any worries.

Customers rave about the chicken biryani, lamb vindaloo, chicken korma, and chicken Manchurian. Popular vegetarian dishes include the Gobi Manchurian (crispy fried cauliflower) and samosa chaat (a puff pastry filled with vegetables, served with chutneys and yogurt).

Their weekday hours are 11 AM – 2 PM for lunch, and 5 PM – 9 PM for dinner. On Saturdays and Sundays they are open all day so you can stop by at your convenience. Reema’s also delivers so you can enjoy their delicious food in the comfort of your apartment home!
