I loved this place. The food was amazing. I was afraid it would be too spicy but you can choose your heat level. I would recommend this place to anyone

I have to Tarka for the second time. The restaurant was clean, the staff were good and foods was nice. I had chicken pakoras, aloo gobi and nans. Recommended for casual lunch or diner.

We tried the garlic naan (appetizer), Tikka Masala with mild heat and chicken with heavenly Basmati rice. All was very delicious! You get to choose a protein and heat index for which next time we will go medium heat and see if that suits us....More

First visit, for lunch. This local mini-chain is fast casual, i.e., order at the counter, find a seat, and someone brings your food after searching all over for you. Gotta be a better way, but they all do it. Seems like each ethnicity is opening...More
