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

Tarka Indian Kitchen, located in the same shopping center as Ikea (off i-35 and 1431 in Round Rock) is a fast-service Indian restaurant. Considering that it's just a restaurant where you order at the counter, I found the prices to be too high. Regardless of price, the food was merely average. I chose a medium-level for spice, which still had... More

After reading these reviews I guess I am an Indian food elitist or maybe most have not had the real thing. I ordered Chicken Korma which I always enjoy, but I had no idea what they served me but I only took two tastes and that was enough. Tasted like it was a watered down powder or something. My wife...

Wow, Indian food prepared and served by non-Indians!!! Pricing is outrageous for a self-serve outlet.

I am no expert when it comes to Indian food. I like several different dishes, but like to sample many in order to learn about new ones. Therefore, I like to go to Indian restaurants that offer a buffet so that I can sample several things rather then just ordering the Tandoori chicken. If you know what you want and... More

Conveniently located to the outlet mall in Round Rock, I love how this place indicates on the menu which items are gluten-free, nut-free, vegetarian, etc. Great value, quick, and healthier than your average moderately-priced, faster food restaurant. I recommend the coconut curry with paneer.
