Good reviews on Google encouraged us to visit this place in Seattle. Located in a quiet neighborhood (be slightly careful at night), the restaurant is very clean and offers fast service. A good place for a quiet date (if you don't mind spicy, Indian food). The food was tasty, served hot, with large proportions. The naan (bread) was excellent. Loved... More

We went to India hoping for good as good as here, and were sorely disappointed. Sure, you could get naan 5 for a dollar and could feed a family for less than 5 dollars, but most of it was pretty mediocre. Way better to stay in the US and get the best Indian food ever than go to India and... More

We visit dozens of Indian restaurants in Seattle and the East side and this is the only one we keep returning to. Our favorite dishes are the Palak Masala paneer, fresh Nan bread (regular and garlic), Tikki Masala.

We were welcomed with complementary Bajji. Crispy and oily but tasty. Mango Lussi was thick and best I had in US. Jaipur Masala was awesome. Ordered aalu kulcha... Thumbs-up

Simply amazing. Veg. Jaipuri, Baklava, Roti & Samosas are top class. Best owner who really cares. I consider this best Indian food along with Saffron Grill in Seattle area.

I was never an Indian food lover until eating at Taste of India. The tandori bread was amazing! We ordered 3 dishes and all were amazing.The TANDOORI PANEER was amazing as well as the TANDOORI CHICKEN TIKKA, the BUTTER MASALA and TIKKA MASALA . You can find authentic Indian food –rich curries, creamy masalas. I will return!!

Taste of India is one of the best places for Indian food in the city. The samosas are the best I've had (outside of India). Large and very delicious. If you're visiting the city it would help to have a car if you're planning a visit. Give this place a try

You need transportation to get there if you are visitor. But foods are great and staff are very nice! They have restaurant and bar. You can go as big family too which we were party of 6. If you want to try something different this is the place you won't be disappointed.
