I've eaten at Tarka several times and always enjoyed the food. I can't pronounce most of it, but I love it! I try something different each time and have liked all of it! You order at the counter and then are served when it's ready. Give it a try!

We happened be shopping in the area, so we decided to try Tarka. You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. My wife ordered the chicken Korma. I thought it was a little on the sweet side, She said that flavor reminded her of Cream of Wheat, but she liked it.. I had the Coconut... More

I love this place! I had never had Indian food before and the employee suggested the chicken biryani. I wasn't disappointed! It comes in three different levels of heat. Since I'm a wimp, I got the mild, but there is medium and hot as well. It comes with a cucumber yogurt sauce that helps cut the heat. It's so incredibly... More

My wife and I were out and about the other day and started looking for somewhere to have lunch when we came across the Tarka Indian Kitchen in Round Rock. We both LOVE Indian food so we decided to give it a try. Good decision! Don't let the fast food ordering setup discourage you....the food was amazing. My wife ordered... More

This place has the typical fast food set-up: order and pay at the register, get a number, and serve yourself at the drink bar. You select your table, place the number on a wire stand, and wait for your order to be brought to the table. The menu has a great selection for carnivores or vegetarians. My favorite dish is...

I ate at an Austin location before this location and enjoyed it more. I really like the atmosphere and ease of ordering. I ordered medium hotness with my Lamb Vindaloo and it wasn't very spicy. Please expand to Louisiana!

Not what you would call special occasion restaurant but if you like Indian food it is well worth visit. Not far off the freeway so practical if passing through at the right time.

Good place to visit, they have a pretty extensive menu of different things that you can try whether you are a meat eater or vegetarian. Nice assortment of curries, with three levels of spiciness ranging from mild to hot. The service is good and while not the best Indian cuisine that I've had, it would be a place I would... More

I ordered the spicy eggplant and it was not only tasty I ordered more for take out. The place is small but it was cozy. The rice and Nan bread was tasty. I ordered the garlic nan bread. Prices were reasonable. I am so glad we drove around the store complex otherwise we would have missed this gem.

When I want quick and tasty Indian food, I go here. While set-up for a casual dinner out, this is also a good lunch destination too. The menu is clearly displayed on the wall at the entrance, and details exactly what each dish contains. For those who have never had Indian food before, this is a good way to start.... More
