Great Indian Food

When I want quick and tasty Indian food, I go here. While set-up for a casual dinner out, this is also a good lunch destination too. The menu is clearly displayed on the wall at the entrance, and details exactly what each dish contains. For those who have never had Indian food before, this is a... read more

I ordered the spicy eggplant and it was not only tasty I ordered more for take out. The place is small but it was cozy. The rice and Nan bread was tasty. I ordered the garlic nan bread. Prices were reasonable. I am so glad we drove around the store complex otherwise we would have missed this gem.

Probably not the best Indian food in Austin, but Tarka is always consistent, and their multiple locations make them a stand-by for us. We like that you can choose the "spice" level of their dishes... we love spicy food, but sometimes you want to take it back a notch or two. Overall, Tarka is a place we trust for decent... More

Their chicken korma is heavenly!!! I used to always get the tikka masala but I tried something new and that's my new favorite thing!!! Their chicken kabob is also extremely tasty if you want something a little lighter.

This is a great little Indian restaurant. The food was fresh, flavorful and quick! I loved how Tarka showed which items were vegan, that helps out a lot when you have multiple food allergies like dairy, eggs etc. They even had a gluten free menu which had more than just a few items on it. So refreshing to see that,... More

We used to be able to count on Tarka for a good, quick Indian food fix. The past few times we have been, the quality of the food has seriously gone down hill. After waiting 30 minutes for my food and watching everyone that came in after us get their food, mine had better be close to perfect. That's what... More

I was hungry after shopping at Ikea. Tarka was quick and reasonably priced. I found the spice levels quite low my medium could have been mild in some other restaurants but it tasted great. If I wanted to spend a couple of hours eating in an authentic indian style restaurant there are better places but for what I wanted this... More

I hadn’t had Indian food in a bit, and didn’t feel like doing much waiting, so that’s one reason why I came back here. Another reason was the food here is always good. Situated in the far corner of the shopping plaza (opposite from where IKEA is), there’s plenty of parking, and a limited patio area for some outdoor seating.... More

This is a place which I’ve been to many times, whether as a lunch destination, or going with friends for dinner. As this is a local chain, I feel good about spending my money here, as it stays within my community. Essentially this is “fast food Indian.” If you’re someone who’s never had Indian cuisine before, this is a great... More

Even though it is set up as fast food, it will be delivered to your table,food tastes fresh and friendly service. Looking... More
