Was here with an American friend of mine. He said it would be good and it was great. A nice quick way of having Indian food.

Love the food here and the ambiance. If you want to try Indian food but, less heat the typical Indian food has this is the place for you. My 10 year old typically complains when we want to eat Indian food but, he is a...fan of this place :).More

The restaurant has wide varieties of Indian menu and good sitting place. Rates are little high and taste needs improvement. Service is OK.

Ate at the domain. We loved it. Great flavors. Had the tikka masala and the dal. Add a bunch of naan of course. Thought it was so good we went to another location south of Barton springs. Same good food. Really liked the quality. Genuine...Indian dishes served fast and casual. Would eat here once a week if lived in Austin.More

The restaurant serves Indian food with spices. Though it is not fully Indian, it provides feel of India away from home. Good options available, both for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Basmati rice was long grain only, not real basmati.

We were headed for Mexican but decided to try out Tarka Indian Kitchen. It was delicious and plentiful. The Samosa Chaat were a new treat and we gobbled it up. The Samosa topped with onions, garbanzo beans, chutneys, and roti crisps was very tasty. My...husband enjoyed his Chicken Masala and I really liked the vegetarian Channa Masala. The roti, whole wheat flattened bread with fresh cilantro on top was also tasty.More

No chicken pieces in chicken tikka. A very small bowl, mostly filled with curry soup. Tiny chicken (like ground chicken) at the bottom of the bowl. Same thing for lamb Biriyani. Looks like made of ground lamb. No solid pieces. Bad taste. Vegetable tastes awkward....The dishes were worth of no more than $15, but we paid about $35. This was our first visit to Tarka and we will never ever go there again.More
