Subtley flavoured dishes in a pocket-sized room

In the quaint heart of Emsworth's old town, this restaurant is so narrow that it is almost hard to spot. But it is easy to remember because I found the familiar Indian dishes I tried on my one visit were well made, nicely presented, and of subtle flavours. In a mid-range Indian place such as... read more

We try and come to Taste of India (or "the little curry house" as it's known to locals) as often as we can as it's just so good. Amazing service, delicious food and all at a reasonable price a stone throw away from my house. What more could you want!

My work colleagues and I visit here fairly regularly. There is a consist good quality to the food which is served piping hot and fairly quick. Food is not greasy and is very tasty. We are yet to ever have a bad meal here. For the price you pay you are on to a winner.

This was our first visit to this Indian restaurant which had been recommended by friends. A small quaint place but comfortable and well presented. The starters were very tasty, although £4.95 for one prawn sizzler! REALLY? That price needs to be looked at I think. The mains, again, were tasty but nothing special. Overall, a pleasant evening out but will... More

Excellent! Wouldn't use any other even though we have moved 5 miles away. Have used it for over 5 years and food is consistently good

Took a bit of a chance that there'd be space on a Friday night without booking, as it's quite a small place. However, a group were just leaving, so we got in. Long time since I was last there, but was as good as I'd remembered.

This is a fab little restaurant, with friendly service. OK it's small, but I personally prefer that to the large restaurant a couple of doors away where the service has never been very good, and is usually indifferent, on occasions just being terrible. In here there are only 10 - 12 tables, and the service is very good indeed. I've... More
