We saw the signboard while driving from Phoenix via Moriarty towards Elk City. We found the place easily. It is next to Petrol Bunk and very well located for tourists and people traveling through this highway. If you like hot rotis/chapathi/pulka and Lentils, try this place. The rice kheer was tasty,but the yogurt was a little sour. other side dishes... More

We chose this location becuase it has been some time since we last had Indian food. We were not familiar with many of the a la carte offerings. The buffet offerings were familiar. While the spice mix was a bit unfamiliar the food was quite good. The restaurant is proud of their food being freshly prepared. The food was at... More

I've passed the signs on I-40 for Taste of India many times, and had my curiosity piqued. This time, I was hungry, and so was my traveling companion. We decided to pull into the Dhillon Truck Stop at exit 356. The restaurant is on the back side, away from the highway side with the gas pumps. We pulled around. There... More

On Route 40 going east in New Mexico, almost at the Texas border, you'll see a sign saying there is an Indian restaurant off the highway at the Dhillon Truck Stop. Who expected that in the land of green chile? Well, my husband and I decided to stop and see. The restaurant is family run,and it's not fancy or plush,... More

We've been driving by this place for several years, and with each passing make a new threat to try it out some day. Well, we did just that last weekend and we were rewarded richly. There is absolutely no ambiance to the place. It's a truck stop. You'll pass by fuel filters and brake pads on your way to the... More

We were excited when learnt about a Punjabi Dhaba on 1-40, so we decided to stop there on our way. After stopping, We first went to restroom, which was very horrible, stinking, leaking, broken, even worse than govt restrooms in India. Dhaba owner/manager was a very sweet and soft spoken guy. We reached Dhaba just 1 hour after having our... More

I live in the SF Bay Area and have eaten a significant amount of Indian food. This tiny restaurant inside a truck stop near the NM/Tex border compares well with the Indian food in the Bay Area. I ate from the buffet and asked for Naan (bread), which was served at no additional cost. The selection was limited, but I... More

My husband accidentally discovered Taste of India when his truck broke down last year nearby. We are both fans of all types of Indian food and he was eager to introduce me to this place. Todays visit was exceptional and both the food, service and atmosphere contributed to our great lunch. Previous review was spot on, as its in a... More
