Decent Indian fare. Prices were closer to the expensive side but it is the only Indian restaurant in the area so that could be it. Food was good which is important.

Stopped in on a solo trip and had a Tikki Masala with Garlic Naan. It was hot and fresh and of good quality. Atmosphere was upscale and service was fine. Menu was large with plenty of options . Cost was $18 with no drink. Not...bad fir dinner. After tip you get into the $21+ range so lots of good options in town at that price. If you are in the mood for Indian Food this is a good choice.More

Great little restaruant, with very good food. The restaurant is rarely crowded, and service is always prompt and friendly, including asnwering questiosn about the food and the ability to adjust the spice heat of some of the dishes. They serve a small selection of alcoholic...drinks, including wine and Indian beer. I would suggest trying the sample platters, or better yet, going for the lunch buffet.More

My friend and I stopped for lunch and had the buffet. There was a good selection, but the buffet didn’t seemed well kept (clean around the dishes, etc) but the food was great and the service was good. Price was average for lunch. I’d stop...again.More

Service was fine although I only got the Mango IceCream. My friends ordered a few cultural dishes from menu, but as one of my friends and I werent too hungry, ice cream was fine for us. Not too much of an Indian food lover.

Been to T if I a few times before and was generally impressed. This time - not so much. Service staff seemed disorganized and confused; everyone at one point came by to take our order even after order was put in. Food was lackluster. Something...has changed since my last visit so much that upon my next craving for Rogan josh I am going to try one of the other Indian spots.More

We were 5 of us for business /Dinner occasion . Taste of India restaurant which is there for over 12 years , served us some awwwsome freshly made extremely tasty Indian veg and non veg dishes with very delicious paring red wines. Service was prompt,...thoughtful and very helpful to make sure all our diner needs were met to the highest. Owner himself served us for the most part with friendly attitude and with great pride. Prices of the wines and meals were very reasonable , portions were good as well . Chilli nan and bread basket were fresh and very tasty. Kudos to the chef as well as owner of this very nice Indian restaurant .we will visit it very often with our local friends and family who lives in this area , as we visit from Atlanta very often . We went to India House / an very expensive and so called Fine Dinning place near Ritz Carlton hotel ,but a totally garbage food place needs to come and learn how to prepare gourmet Indian dishes, before they should call them self fine dinning and be soo expensive. In conclusion, Taste of India in Merrillville, IN is serving one of the BeST Indian cuisines in Chicago Land area and strongly recommend to all Indian food lovers to try this hidden Gem !! 👍👍👍👌👌👍👍👍 Dr. Pravin J Patel.

On my way from Chicago to Louisville, I did not want to stop at a boring fast food. I took an exit with many options to choose from, not expecting to find an Indian restaurant. As soon as I saw Taste of India, the decisions...was made. I don't regret it. The food is good. The esthetics of the place are pleasant. Server was very friendly. I don't come often on this route, but I know where to stop next time around.More

I stopped by to grab some quick bite. I asked the owner what was good. She said everything :-). I though it couldn’t be true, but I did not have time to explore another restaurant. So ordered some food. It turned out to be oily...and taste was not as good as I expected. May be it is alright for other people.More

This was my first time trying Indian cuisine. It was delicious. We went for the lunch buffet on a Saturday ($11.99) I'm a vegetarian and tried all the veggie dishes. (My husband had everything else and loved it, especially the Tandoor chicken, braised lamb and...spicey fish)My favorite was the Khadai vegetables. And the desert! I could've sat there all day eating the Gajar la Halwa and the rice pudding. Staff was very kind and polite. Dining area was very clean and nicely decorated.More

Went here for dinner and the food was great. The restaurant had great service - our family was seated and greeted immediately. Ordered Malai Kofta, Palak Paneer and a few types of Naan. Overall, the food was really tasty, great flavor and perfect on the...spice level. Definitely recommend this location to anyone in the area who wants to try some authentic Indian cuisine.More

Alerted to the presence of this restaurant by a bill board. Decided to try instead of common choices. Was greeted and seated promptly. Crisp cracker-like bread and sauces brought out a a complimentary appetizer. Pretty good selection on menu. Ordered the grilled variety platter (chicken,...fish,shrimp, sausage. Came sizzling to our table with rice, sauce, and naan bread. Was tasty. We chose the medium spicey. Was as expected. Enough for two people. A decent clean place with nice touches in decor and table compliment. Would recommend and return. A good experience to the open minded.More

The food and service were amazing. You get a ton of food and it's all really savory. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
