A friend of ours introduced us to this simple/quaint restaurant in the Herndon area. It is a mixture of different dishes from select countries, but mostly mid and south asian cuisine. The staff is friendly and the owner is always welcoming. It is worth a visit if you are in the area. Try their Okoy (vegetable fritters) to start -... More

A Taste of the World was a quaint little place off the beaten path in an industrial park. They have delicious and authentic Thai, Indian, Italian, Southeast Asian, Filipino, Caribbean, and Middle Eastern cuisine. My wife and I both got the dumplings which were very good and the Shrimp Pancit. Philippine noodles, stir fry carrots, cabbage, and soy sauce. Very... More

If you want a variety of food and don't like to drive around? Visit the Taste of the World. I went here for lunch and was served some very tasty food.

This is a local dining establishment, hidden away in a little commercial section, and the food is excellent. They serve a variety of selections from various parts of Asia, plus a few other regions. It's all delicious! Pricing is reasonable (not cheap, but not outlandish). You can safely bring the kids, though you might enjoy better without them (ymmv;). Very... More

A Taste of The World is a favorite of mine for years. The space is small and located in a popular business park setting. It seems to have a great 'local following". Their international menu is what brings me back every time!!

Have been here several times now with friends and it's a great restaurant. I really can't say I've had anything I've ever been disappointed with. The most challenging part is figuring out what to choose (especially from the appetizers). Will definitely be back. They have a good price point and a very friendly and accommodating staff.

I love how I can order authentic Thai, Indian, Mexican and more from one family-run restaurant. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the service is stellar.

We were staying in an extended stay hotel nearby and didn't want to go far for some Asian food. We hesitated ordering from here because of the name and the idea that they do so many types of Asian cuisine. However, we ended up ordering Thai food from here and it was GREAT. We only ate there twice, but each... More

Dropped by for a quick dinner, and was pleasantly surprised! I went with the recommendation of Basil Chicken, and I loved the dish. The various blend of spices, were welcoming and not at all overpowering. The chicken was tender, and juicy throughout every bite. I feel obligated to come back again, to try some of their Indian, Filipino and Caribbean... More

Most restaurants have their specialty offerings and one would expect that if you have an offering on the menu you know how to prepare such offering. This was not the case at this restaurant. If you know what authentic Trinidad curry roti should taste like and you're in the mood for that dish, this is not the place to go.... More
