    Service lets 5th Element down but the food is amazing. Also sitting outside in this heat all the fans were turned off and everyone was sweating. Waiter barely checked on us and was very slow. I really liked the food here though and the setting is nice too.

    5th Element is the only Indian restaurant in Palm Coasts, so we are lucky it's a good one. I recommend a thali as it has a good variety of dishes and provides a tasting experience at the table. The Indian beer is refreshing on a hot day and the service is attentive.

    We don't get to eat out too often and we went here for a date night tonight, and we had an amazing meal. Staff gave us a lot of attention and we had some fried pakoras and samosas for appetizers that were crispy and tasty, and for entrees my wife had the shrimp vindaloo that was tangy and delicious, and I had a lamb korma dish which was mild but had an amazing creamy sauce with very soft and tender meat. The mango lassies are superb and help a lot with spicy food, and I liked the Taj beer. We're so glad that our rare dining out opportunity was not wasted and 5th Element definitely rose to the occasion.

    Everything I had on the buffet today was awesome! Really tasty food and so much to choose from. Make sure to ask for dosa as they鈥檙e made fresh and go so well with the daal. Staff all pitch in and get the job done very well.

    Their weekend buffets are great value with plenty of choices... everything is delicious! It's also a great place for dinner in the evenings with a big menu and the outside courtyard is a wonderful setting. Customer service is very professional.

    Their weekend buffet is the best food in town with everything fresh and regularly replenished and outstanding flavors. It was busy today with most people sitting inside because of the weather, but it created a good atmosphere. Many delicious items on the buffet and even the chutneys are wonderful. Come hungry and it's good value. 5th Element is one of Palm Coast's top restaurants and our only Indian.

    We visited for the Sunday lunch buffet which had plenty of dishes and items, and everything I sampled was delicious. I really like the Indian flavors and find they do them very well. I recently went in a high end Indian restaurant in NYC and the food and 5th Element was much better.

    Highlight of visit: The buffet on weekends is good value with a good choice of dishes.

    Awesome date night here with GF. We got great service and food was very exotic tasting and delicious. They bring you many condiments and the breads helped to soak up the sauce. The beer from India was very good also. A top notch meal and experience.

    We go here for the buffet on weekends but we have given up going for the menu service the rest of the time. Food is just not what it was and doesn't taste so good. They're opening a nice new 5th Element at St. Johns Town Center in Jacksonville, so looking forward to trying that one.

    We love Indian food and found 5th Element a hit and miss with its dishes. The pakora starter tasted like it had been refried a few times and tasted of little but the oil, and although the papadoms were light and crispy, the sauces were very unhygienic with the same ones and spoons used from a different customer's table which grossed us out. However, the Muligatawny Soup was delish and the Chicken 65 was very tasty and spicy. My husband had a Dal which had nice flavor but was too salty, and his Mixed Tandoor lived up to its name - mixed - some very good, some dry and tough. Service was OK and attentive with the delivery of dishes and cleaning the plates, etc., but not with drink refills, and no smiles or 'thank yous'. This was the only Indian restaurant we could find in Palm Coast so I guess they have no competition which may keep it from excelling.

    I had the Paneer Tikka about a month ago and loved it, but ordered it again last night and it was like a completely different dish. Didn't have no where near the flavor it had before and was very disappointed. Husband had a curry dish and said his was quite good but wouldn't order it again. We were also not very happy with the service as we had to ask for everything. A larger table seemed to be getting all their attention. It felt like they were seriously cutting back and need to up their game for us to eat here again.

    Buffet was good with a nice variety of dishes that all tasted very good. The chicken biriyani and an eggplant curry dish were my favorites. They had some good desserts as well. Service was very slow and not very attentive. It would have been nicer sitting outside if people weren't vaping.

    I've had some amazing meals here but tonight was subpar! Everything had that 'raw' spice taste like the spices weren't cooked enough or put in the wrong time. Hoping this is a one off as I really enjoy it as a rule.

    Came here about a month ago and the food was amazing but tonight it was completely different... I ordered the same dish of Tikka Paneer and it really wasn't very good. Maybe they have a different chef? Service not the greatest either. One more try in hopes of it being like my first visit. Otherwise I am done!

    The food was really tasty but the service was hot and cold. One moment we had 2 or 3 servers attending to us and the next they disappeared for ages, this was the pattern throughout and there was only one other table occupied. The Vindaloo and the Tikka Paneer were both incredible and I really like Indian beer.

    Highlight of visit: The Vindaloo was the star dish

    The buffet selection was very good and everything I sampled was really tasty. The service could be more attentive and we noticed people around us getting things we weren't, and was told it was because we didn't ask for them, but no one offered or said we could... I guess you have to be in the know!! Also, not the restaurant's fault but the mess the other diners were making at the buffet was disgusting... some people are like animals!! Staff did clean quickly though but I could see they were annoyed. One person said it is much better to go for the Saturday buffet as the Sunday one is from the market crowd who always make a mess.

    We went to try something new at European Village and ended up here. I was a little skeptical, but the wife loves Indian food.... so in we went!!

    The people were exceptionally kind and understanding of my ignorance, and out of confused desperation I ordered Aloo Muttor which is peas and potatoes in a creamy curry sauce. We also got the Garlic Naan, and she got the Lamb Curry. She got medium heat, I got mild being afraid. First off, the food was mild spicy and the amount of flavors in the food was quite amazing! This was delicious! I tried her medium heat dish and it too was very tolerable and quite delectable. The Garlic Naan was also very tasty!

    The entire experience was one of the best I have had in Flagler County. I'm sure it is largely because I sure wasn't expecting it. Talking with the proprietors, we found out about the buffet they have on the weekends....guess where we'll be eating this weekend!

    I want to try ALL of it.

    Highlight of visit: Everything about the place is worth going back again.
