This is a great place to introduce people to Indian food, while they don't have all the local foods that some others do they have a great selection for people to get antiquated with this spectacular food.

While the food preparation is fast, it's just not very good. The vegetable jalfrezi tasted oddly acidic and chana massala was bland and flavorless. The recipes are more 'Indian inspired' with jalapenos thrown in for good measure that don't really add anything. It's a shame since the fast-casual concept would be great for Indian food but apart from the naan... More

Auntie at Austin: East coast family is visiting Austin family. We're blessed w/a second nephew :) Their spice level is on point w/our family's palate. Nicely done. Our carry-out to-go order were well-packaged and ready to just open up and enjoy. My medium spiced chicken biryani was what I'd consider a medium level of tasty heat. Golf clap. Full of... More

My husband and I try to visit Tarka at least once a month. I've tried a different dish every time I've been and I haven't been disappointed yet. Everything is fresh, and I can control how spicy I want my dish. They will make it as hot or as mild as I wish. They are friendly and helpful with the... More

I used to order from this restaurant but don't anymore, I go to Teji's because when you order mild at Teji's the food is mild enough that I can eat it. Also I can get pappadum at Teji's and the most wonderful naan I have ever eaten. Tarka has good food if you are indian or of a darker skin... More

I have never eaten Indian food and won't again. Aside from that my food was cold and a member of our group did not get their food until the rest of the group had finished. Although I am unfamiliar with this cuisine I don't feel it is very high quality. Trendy does not always mean edible.

Tarka serves fresh and yummy Indian dishes. The chicken tikka masala is one of my faves and don't forget the samosas. Always yummy.
