Returning from my Fresno seminar, I stopped off in my old stomping grounds in Merced to join two friends of mine who do not live Merced permanently (they actually are my neighbors in Sacramento!) but work near Merced. My friends shared that there was a very good Indian restaurant I should try while in Merced, so why not? When I... More

I love Indian food. In Merced, this is the best you'll get. The flavors are authentic and the prices are reasonable.

Just finished lunch. Loved it! Better than Taste of India here in Merced. I will be coming here instead, and regularly for business lunches.

Nice place; good food for the value. One of the two decent Indian restaurants in Merced. Not to mention, on the takeouts, they started adding Naan/bread with every order along with rice which is a very nice gesture. Most restaurants will either give you rice or Naan/bread

Food was very nice and tasty. It had an authentic Indian taste. Surprisingly, Serving staff were not Indians but were very pleasant and caring.

I find it refreshing to dine in such a clean and friendly restaraunt! The service is good and the food is fantastic! It beats any other Indian cuisine in town. If you want a variety and tired of the same thing on a menu then this is the place to find it.It is different and fulfilling.

This newly-opened restaurant has a great selection of Indian cuisine. Be sure to order the garlic naan.

Indian food is one of my favorite cuisines. When I'm in the Bay Area or out of State I like to seek out Indian restaurants. I've been to quite a number of them, so Indian food is not new to me. I wandered into Turmeric with a friend, liked the cute name and the location was perfect at that time.... More
