Good Indian Food

We went there while visiting Seattle, because we really like Indian food and we were not disappointed. The staff was very nice and attentive and prompt with the water and tea refills. I had the Tandoori chicken and it was delicious, juicy and tender and very flavorful. My son ate the Jalfrezi and... read more

First time at Taste of India and what a wonderful experience. Delicious tandoori chicken, garlic naan, butter chicken, samosa and more. Margaritas are awesome as well. Try the Billionaire Cocktail! Service is great--friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Definitely recommend and will be back.

The first thing you will experience is the absolutely incredible aroma of spices and curries. It smells heavenly. Shortly after being seated, we were treated to a complimentary potato covered in chickpea flour then fried served with tamarind and mint chutneys. Delicious. Ultimately, we ordered Vegetarian delight as an appetizer, my son got his usual Mango Lassi, and Chicken Tikka... More

I love Indian Food and have been to many of the local Indian restaurants over the past years. There are always new ones opening as Seattle and surroundings have a large Indian population and there are a few long term staples we go to for 20 years now. While Taste of India is not one I had considered one of... More

I had the aloo paratha and a jalfrazie that was large enough to be a meal on its own. Everything was flavorful, service was excellent and the portions were generous. Can't go wrong here.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I ate at this restaurant. The atmosphere is nothing out of the ordinary, but the food is. I like my food with no stars heat and I was very satisfied. The rest of the family ordered more heat and they got it. Everyone went home with extra food and a happy stomach.

Warm and friendly, this restaurant seems to be in such an out of the way location. Had our Uber driver not told us about it we probably would have missed the experience. Deep, rich flavors in the Nan, curry dishes and dessert. The staff was really great, and about 4 different people stopped by for one reason or another. This... More

This place is bigger than it looks. We were seated all the way on the north end where you had to take a few turns to get to, but it was like having our own private room without the doors. As others have commented, the wait staff is great (refreshing change from other types of Asian restaurants) and they can... More

We came here with friends, who have eaten there every time they come to this neighborhood. We enjoyed the friendly and professional service, the appetizers, the main meal, the naan, the sauces that come with it, and - - - oh, the chai! Fabulous. My husband chose the gyro from the Mediterranean menu, and I had mango curry with tofu... More
