 I have been to 5th Element's location in Jacksonville and it's much better than this one. The buffet here is about one third the size at the same price.... read more!

    Absolutely delicious food, highly professional service, and a wonderful setting. Been here many times and have never been disappointed. Had buffet for the first time on Easter Sunday and it couldn't have been better. Perfect weather to sit outside and the every bite of food was bursting with exotic flavors. This is by far my favorite restaurant in Palm Coast.

    This is by far the best dining experience we have had in Palm Coast. From the moment you arrive you're treated with respect and gratitude and nothing is too much effort for the staff. The menu has a large selection of Indian and Indo Chinese dishes and it's so difficult to make a choice. Every time we go we try something new but also crave what we had before as it's all so delicious. Portion sizes are generous and prices very good for the quality. The restaurant has a nice relaxing feel and Bollywood music keeps you entertained.

    My only complain is that I wish they made better use of their bar. We didn't know they had one for a while and it would be nice to see some exotic cocktails offered. I think many other local restaurants could learn a lot from 5th Element in regards to service and attitude. Thank you for being here and we will visit often.

    The food here is so yummy I could eat here every day LOL So many dishes to choose from and it's fun trying new ones. Everything I've had so far has been very tasty and unique. Their staff are really efficient and go out of their way to please. Like another reviewer said, the only negative is the lighting inside as it is just too bright and distracts from the atmosphere. But we love it here and on milder nights will sit outside and enjoy the village atmosphere.

    My husband and I just love 5th Element - Their flavors are amazing and service is so attentive and eager to please. The menu has most Indian favorites and everything is cooked so well and served elegantly. It's also very nice to have linen napkins. We always have enough left over to take home and prices are very reasonable for the quality. Their cocktails are excellent, too! We like dining outside in the warmer weather which offers a great atmosphere but not so keen on the inside as it doesn't feel so relaxed and is way to stark and bright.

    Highlight of visit: My favorites here are Saag Paneer and Korma.

    What an incredible meal! The food here is absolutely wonderful. My hubby and I visited Friday night and we sat outside. There were several servers who each pitched in and whoever was closets attended to us, which was very nice. We shared a thali which is basically a buffet at your table of several small portions of dishes, and each one tasted amazing. It came with hot naan bread and a dessert. Also, the drinks were very good and I had the best margarita in a long time! Prices are very reasonable and the musician playing in the courtyard was very good. Can't recommend 5th Element enough!

    Visited today for the weekend brunch buffet and it was fantastic. Plenty of interesting choices on the buffet and everything we selected had had great flavor and not too spicy. Naan bread was delicious and the dessert station also some very nice choices. Service was good and our dirty plates always picked up quickly. The atmosphere is very nice but would like some music playing to help set the mood more.

    We have had the buffet here a few times and never been disappointed. The choices are awesome and the flavors are incredible. It's fun trying new items and we've surprised ourselves how adventurous with eating we've become. Service is great too, and we love sitting outside in the warmer weather. Give them a try!

    A fantastic restaurant and so glad we now have Indian food in Palm Coast! We sat outside in the piazza and the ambiance was lovely. The food is very vibrant and colorful and the flavors are incredible. The naan is fluffy and rice nice and loose. The Vindaloo is highly recommended and the lunch buffet is a great opportunity to try many dishes. Make sure you get a mango lassi too!

    Had lunch here for the first time today and we loved it. Buffet was a bit small, but everything we tried was delicious. Another poster mentioned French decor, but it seems the restaurant has since changed and now it's been redecorated in an Indian theme. Wait staff seemed timid but did answer a few questions we had about certain dishes. Overall, we were very happy and very full when we left. Will definitely be back again!

    Went there for the first time from a recommendation at work. Loved the good. It's not spicy as I do not prefer one. We are vegetarian thali and the price is reasonable considering the amount of food you get. Took some home as well. The service is great. Very attentive staff and very friendly. Would go there again for sure.

    Not sure really how to rate the restaurant because I had 2 very different experiences. The 1st we ordered dinner from the menu and had very good meals and decent service. As another poster said the servers don't explain sauces or help you understand the food, but that experience was still overall good. We came back for the lunch buffet and I had very little idea of what we were eating and both us had difficulty finding anything we liked on the buffet. The mango frozen yogurt was good, but we won't be back for the buffet for sure.

    This place is fantastic for adventurous eaters, especially those who like to try new things or like spicy delicious foods. The menu is very big. I highly recommend the gobi manchurian appetizer (fried cauliflower) it was so good and worth the price. The naan bread is also delicious like warm garlic bread. I got the murgh malai kabab because I did not want anything spicy and it was probably the best chicken I ever ate. We had some picky eaters in our party and they got the corn soup which ended up being the spiciest thing on the menu, so unfortunately not everyone was happy about being there and they barely ate anything.

    The waitstaff consisted of a bunch of extremely shy and quiet Indian people who were nearly mute and did not bother to explain spice levels or anything so they were very unhelpful. I felt like the entire waistaff had severe social anxiety. I think I only saw the waiter twice during our whole visit.

    There was also no music at all so it was very awkward and quiet for dinner. I would come here to try the buffet but not ever again for dinner because of the atmosphere and poor service.

    Long-awaited delicious foods and flavors now available locally. No need to travel to Jax or Daytona. Quality Indian cuisine served in a friendly atmosphere at the European Village. Wide variety of appetizers, entrees and pungency to satisfy everyone in your group. Try the Chicken 65 and the Kabuli Naan. Highly recommended!

    We have had take out twice from this restaurant and have been very pleased at the portions and food quality. I learned to enjoy Indian food when living in London and had many to choose from when living up north in PA. 5th Element a "true" Indian restaurant unlike many other restaurants that claim to be something they aren't (i.e. you can't make a Philly cheesesteak in FL!!) . Look forward to many more meals from 5th Element.

    We ate dinner with another couple. 3 of us love Indian food. The 4th was a novice. We all ordered different items. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. 5th Element is an excellent restaurant and we will be back.

    The vegetarian food is delicious, the naan is delicious!! I love this new, exotic place to eat in Palm Coast. I have been waiting years for an Indian restaurant to come here. We travel 1 hour to get to the 5th Element in Jacksonville and it is always worth the drive. Now we don't have to because we have one right here in Palm Coast. I'm so excited to bring family and friends to eat here.

    We loved this place! We ate outside so I didn't see the old French decor that the prior reviewer wrote about, and that matters very little anyway. I care about food quality, quality of service and the value of the place. This new restaurant did well in all areas. I was disappointed to find out that the buffet is only for lunch time, but that just means I'll be sure to come back at lunch time. Sometimes you can really ask for trouble when going to a new restaurant that just opened; but this one really seemed to have it's act together in every way that it counts to me.

    I have been to 5th Element's location in Jacksonville and it's much better than this one. The buffet here is about one third the size at the same price. I was also hoping for a much more "Indian" dining experience, but It seems to be suffering from an identity crisis with French decor and pictures of Paris on the walls. It seems like they made no effort on transforming the place from it's previous occupant. However, the food is very good and service was attentive. I'll visit again in hopes that will improve.
