We've been going for years. The prices are quite reasonable. Restaurant has recently changed location, but the menu is unchanged.

Very delicious quality Indian foods. Butter chicken and others are delicious. They even have a $10.99 buffet lunch on Christmas day. Very nicely located and very family friendly. Truly recommended.

First and foremost, Taste of India has been around for many years, and it is only recently I would say in the last seven years that I have seen a spike in the interest among the general population that might not have tried Indian Food, thank goodness to the interest of multicultural backgrounds that this wonderful restaurant is finally seeing...

The meals here are always good and the people are friendly. The naan is exceptionally delicious. I'd recommend the buffet for lunch.

The goal was to bring home some delicious Indian takeout on a weekday. The original plan was to stop by a restaurant closer to the 290 on Sheridan but unfortunately discovered that this establishment was temporarily closed for renovations. I quick improvised and decided to give Taste of India a try. I was only in the restaurant briefly but it... More

What a perfect place for lunch. They have a very intensive lunch menu but they have also very good buffet. I went there with two of my coworkers. we purchased two buffets and one meal. The place looks very clean and set up nicely very traditional Indian restaurant. There were so many choices available in the buffet served with a... More

Get ready for a funny story - on the way back from the falls the wife had this craving for mirchi bajji (deep fried hot chillis in batter). This being our anniversary week her wish was granted. We went to another place nearby (Delhi chaat) but they didn't offer it, even though they have similar items in their menu -... More

Being outside the country and getting the same perfect Indian taste in a Indian restaurant is always a nice experience. Great Food quality, nice ambience and good dining makes it a nice experience to dine out.

Name does not represent any taste of Indian flavor.Hard to find any food that challenged my taste buds. All food under heat lamps. Pros: Ambiance,salad bar, Samosas, Cons: service, Naan, Tomato rice, Butter naan, all vegetable curry's, deserts, I would never recommend the buffet for any one. Let me try the a' le carte and rate them again.

We were here on a monday and it seemed that the food was prepared a long time before that.Even the naan tasted badly,The only good thing I had was the mango lassie.I also got sick that same night which ruined my next day.
