Delicious Indian food near the outlets in Round Rock, so perfect for a lunch break. Seems pretty authentic (based on my limited experience) and the levels of spicy ensure something for everyone. Favorite dish is the Saag with chicken!

Food was terrible. I expected more quality. It made us sick.

Being used to great Indian cooking, I may be a little harsh here... but really, it fills the stomach but nothing outstanding.

I liked everything about my first Indian food experience. I had the help of two family members in ordering and etiquette. We shared Samosa Chaat (starter), shrimp Biryanis, a Curry dish (don't remember which one), and Garlic Naan (bread). The flavors were new, but quite enjoyable.

This is a great option if you want some good indian food fast. It is not your normal sit down place...you walkin, order at the counter and they bring it to you. The food is value priced, and of good quality. Definately worth trying.

Really moist chicken kaboobs, well seasoned grilled veggies and yummy rice--loved the sauce. Entrees under $10 and plenty of food. The extra order of flat bread was really good (enough for 2 to share). Mango lemonaide was dellicious. Staff was very helpful. Plan to eat here again.

Tarka's food is just ok, fresh but bit boring. There are much better indian places in Round Rock.

I don't remember ever having true indian food before (store bought food packages don't count), so I have little to compare this cuisine with. Nonetheless, I'm very glad this is the first restaurant I've had Indian food at. It is amazing, and me and my wife LOVE going here as often as possible. The food is excellent at a good... More

This is a great little cafe. It is reasonable and clean. Lots of seating and you order at the counter and it is delivered to your table. Nice outside area too. Tipping is at the counter which is nice. It is a great lunch place, especially since they are quick, but also a great family place for dinner. Everything we... More

Went here with a friend and my two kids last week after hearing high recommendations from coworkers. It did not disappoint! It was DELICIOUS Indian food, served in an Americanized style. I had their Tiki Marsala and Garlic Naan which was amazing. Great atmosphere, great food. Definitely going back soon.
