Affordable Indian Comfort Food!

Nice variety of Indian favorites. Tasty. Affordable. A great way to try many items and learn what you like--and don't like!

We visited on a Sunday night and were the only people in. The food tasted like it was just warmed up, not very fresh and the flavors were very average. The entrees arrived before we'd finished the starters. And the mango ice cream tasted like it'd been frozen for years.

I've been going to Taste of India for years, and it still has some of the best Indian food in the Twin Cities. The quality is reliable. And, unlike some of my other Indian favorites over the years, it endures. The buffet typically has beef, chicken and vegetarian curry dishes, tandoori chicken, biryani, naan, rice, and samosas. The mixed vegetable... More

The aesthetic is not great, but the food is!! The service was attentive and friendly too. We are fans of Chana Masala and theirs was very good. We also enjoyed the cauliflower and potato dish. From the South Indian part of menu, we liked the bread stuff potatoes, peas, spices, etc. The garlic naan was typical, but tasty. Our daughter... More

I've been eating here occasionally for many years and have always been satisfied by the quality of the food and the service. Most recently, my meal of vegetable samosa, palakalu, and garlic naan was delicious. Our waitress, a charming young Indian woman, was friendly and attentive. My only complaint during this visit on a cold winter's night is that the... More

Great neighborhood Indian place. Fresh food, a la carte and buffet. Better than any other Indian place that we have tried in the twin cities. Not a fancy place, but it is clean and the service is very friendly.

Been going to Taste of India for years and it has always been fairly good and consistent. Went there in Feb 2014 and I think it is even better than it was. Food was fresh and they had some new items in the buffet. Highly recommnend this place. My only complaint to the owners is to brighten the place up... More

Everything is good here. We usually get dal, tikka masala, chicken vindaloo, curry, and naan. This time we also got palak and an appetizer, but I'm not sure what it was called. Dinners are $10-13 and are somewhat small servings and come with very good basmati rice. The Indian tea is also very good with sugar. Very good flavor to... More

My family has been dining here for years. The lunch buffet is extremely popular on weekends, offering a variety of vegetarian, chicken and meat dishes. My favorites include the Curry Pakora, Alub Gobi, and Banarsi Biryani - all prepared with gentle spicing. The Naan is absolutely delicious. My young adult daughter rates the chicken dishes as very good. While iced... More
