Friendly efficient service of tasty food

A spacious restaurant that is obviously popular for pre-theatre meals, but also had a reasonable number of later customers. The service was friendly and efficient. I like that you can specify how hot you want your entrees.The food was very tasty - with the chef's unique style to the dishes.

I do enjoy a good Indian so I am fussy. Popadoms soggy (not crispy as they should be, samosa forgettable, lamb korma was ok and naan very good. Service was mediocre as had waited 10 minutes for table to be cleared....ended up asking them to clear it.

I can never decide what to have at an Indian restaurant. And I am always worried that I will inadvertently order something spicier than my mouth can handle. This lunch buffet let me try a whole variety of things I would never have thought to order. Each was labeled, with ingredients and a description. Yogurt and rice were available, and... More

Tried the Taste of India buffet in Staunton today. Nice decor, but the food was really lacking. To paraphrase Henry Ford, you can have whatever meat you want as long as it is chicken! Chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, and some spicy chicken dish. I was shocked. I have never been to an Indian buffet that did not also offer... More

I've never gone to the Taste of India and eaten; however, I've eaten take-out a lot from here. The food is spot on and when we go to pick up the food they are very nice. I usually get the Meat Samosa, Lamb Masala, Malai Kabab Chicken, Naan, Aloo Paratha, and our meals always comes with poppadoms.

I was in Delhi last year and the offerings here were very authentic. I would say that this is northern Indian cuisine. Nice lunch buffet!

The food at Taste of India rivaled some I've had in London. Don't miss this little gem in Staunton, VA if you visit!

I do not enjoy giving a restaurant a "terrible" rating and want both to give this restaurant full credit for what it does and to explain why I think it is important to call attention to my (very serious) reservations. The dishes on the lunch buffet here are visually very well created and very well presented. Real attention to visual... More
