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.

My husband and I have visited twice for Sunday lunch and really like the food and the trendy, clean fast food atmosphere. I had the Chana Masala and the Aloo Ghobi, both gluten free and vegan. They serve a large portion of rice with the dish. The medium spicy level was perfect for me, my hubby liked the hot. The... More

This is like an Indian Pei Wei. Somewhat fast food, take out or eat in. You order your food, they give you your drink cup and a card witha number. You serve yourself for drinks and wait for your food to be delivered. They have outdoor seating as well as indoor seating. The staff is friendly and helpful. I don't... More

While this is my most-frequented location of this Austin-based chain, I have been to other locales, and noted the quality has been good across the board. My girlfriend loves Indian food, and had never experienced this, so it made since to introduce her to it. I got my favorite chicken vindaloo while my GF ordered the chicken kabob. Everything was...

My lunch here was fantastic! I tried the Korma with chicken and Coconut Curry with vegetables. I appreciate being able to choose the spice level. The service was excellent and the restaurant very clean. The Mango-Lemonade was very refreshing!
