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

Off Hwy 36 in Maplewood Minnesota sits a very unpretentious restaurant serving "Tasty Indian Food".On entering this low key restaurant you are greeted by a family member who welcomes you with a warm manner and seats you quickly at a very clean table with settings in place.Once settled,you are given time to read the comprehensive menu. My wife and I... More

The lunch buffet is good at $9.99 if you like this kind of food. However, the ala carte evening menu is overpriced, under served (portions are too small) and VERY salty. Plus, the bathrooms are filthy and badly in need of repainting. This was once a far better place, but they have gradually declined in quality over the years.

Visit 3-4 times per year for lunch buffet. Good selection and fresh food. Definitely recommend if you are in the area during lunch time. Also good for families with younger children.

My son and I went here for the lunch buffet. I was disappointed that the meat in most of the dishes was not tender. The naan bread was overcooked. The food was warm but not hot. It was okay but I wouldn't go back as I'm sure there are better places. Perhaps the food during the dinner hour is better.... More

I went there for the buffet today. $8.99 per person, plus $2.50 for chai tea with free refills. The building is getting old and needs some work. However it was very clean. The staff was prompt, and very friendly. The buffet was great. I counted about 20 items and tried some of each. I can't remember the Indian names of... More

We've visited Taste of India many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The aroma as you enter this restaurant is simply wonderful, and the food is even better. We normally go to their lunch buffet, sometimes after church. The lunch buffet is seven days a week. Dinner is also served. There is a great array of foods... More
