This is like an Indian Pei Wei. Somewhat fast food, take out or eat in. You order your food, they give you your drink cup and a card witha number. You serve yourself for drinks and wait for your food to be delivered. They have outdoor seating as well as indoor seating. The staff is friendly and helpful. I don't... More

My lunch here was fantastic! I tried the Korma with chicken and Coconut Curry with vegetables. I appreciate being able to choose the spice level. The service was excellent and the restaurant very clean. The Mango-Lemonade was very refreshing!

We met my sister for dinner here and what a great pick! The food was great and the service was outstanding! Very affordable. We had the Korma and Tikka Masala, samosas and chicken apps. All were really nice. Perfect rice. Wine and beer selection was well priced And the service was friendly and attentive. Lots of families, and couples, and... More

I am born and brought up in India. Food was horrible. And to my surprise.... there were 3 cooks in kitchen and all 3 of them were Mexican.... Not even a single Indian cook. I do like the fast service, but again its not Indian food. You can just call it food.

Great food and love the homemade Mango juice! Food can be a little spicy but that's great if you like spicy food.

My wife and I love Indian. Living in Britain we had the opportunity to try many styles and regional Indian cuisine. We went here because it was near to where we were shopping. The food was flavorless, didn't use the right ingredients, and was completely unauthentic. This place is officially the worst Indian food I've ever had in my life.

I've eaten at Tarka several times and always enjoyed the food. I can't pronounce most of it, but I love it! I try something different each time and have liked all of it! You order at the counter and then are served when it's ready. Give it a try!

We happened be shopping in the area, so we decided to try Tarka. You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. My wife ordered the chicken Korma. I thought it was a little on the sweet side, She said that flavor reminded her of Cream of Wheat, but she liked it.. I had the Coconut... More
