Recommended by a friend. Great menu selections, lots of vegan and gluten free options, busy place. Large portions. We could have shared with 2 other people. Chicken dishes melt in your mouth and the spinach paag was Yummy! The wait staff was great, expect not to rush in here, great food takes time to prepare. I will come again.

Taste of India offers not only Indian dishes, but it also has a small selection of Mediterranean dishes. It should stick to one thing and do it well. I chose from the Mediterranean menu, and my husband chose Indian. Neither of us did well. My babaganoush did not have much of the smoky taste which makes it so distinctive. (I... More

We have visited this restaurant on and off four times over four years. Each time we have come out happy and satisfied. The hot chai while we waited was a life-saver and the chana masala, paneer dishes and the naans were delicious. We were also served excellent complimentary fritters - pakoras with mint and tamarind chutney. Even the three year... More

The only Indian restaurant in Seattle whose food is closer to Pakistani. I liked the food. Service is a bit slow but they do give you heads up for 20 mom delay for most of the items in menu.

We loved the food, went for lunch, the staff could not have been any nicer. They gave my friends each a complimentary to go cup of chai tea. We were thrilled!

This restaurant is unique, it's an Indian that's not an Indian, despite it not having many dishes I recognised on the menu, when I said I wanted a jalfrezi he said not a problem they would make it for me, sadly it wasn't actually like any jalfrezi I had ever had, it wasn't unpleasant but it wasn't what I expected....

This is a sibling restaurant to the Cedars in U district (Indian food, not the one on 43rd) and used to serve much better food for value than Cedars, but it has become somewhat like Cedars. Their food was good, but not good enough for the increase in price about a year or so ago. Still, it is one of... More

I had come here alone for lunch and was really satisfied with quality of food and service. During my second visit, we were a group of 14 people. They made seating arrangement for us within 10 minutes. We ordered most of the special dishes (veg & non-veg) served in the restaurant starting from starters, drinks, naan, curry, biryani and desserts.... More

Second trip to this restaurant was even better than the first, food wise. Everything was good - aloo golbi, chicken tikka masala, raita, garlic naan. We had rogan josh last time, which was also good. Neverending iced or hot chai. There was no wait, even on a Friday evening - this restaurant is run very efficiently. However, we did have... More

Oh yeah, the butter chicken and chicken curry is some good stuff! They have a delicious complementary appetizer and dessert that is really good as well. There is limited seating outside, but we sat outside and had wonderful service. This place was great, I would recommend it and go back in a heartbeat.
