This restaurant has excellent service and the food is great as well. This a rare combination these days. There naans are particularly huge and deserts are awesome.

I am no Gordon Ramsey but the chicken was definately frozen and presented in what would resemble more of a seafood texture covered in slime and fat. Parts of chicken was soft whilst other parts were hard. Me and my husband are the rice and promptly left. We are not fancy eaters and quite often eat cheap but even this... More

My wife, daughter, her husband, and my two grandsons went to Taste of India on my birthday. We have been there before and knew what to expect. We ordered the bread called naan which was a big hit. I ordered Mango Curry with paneer, which is a type of cheese. The serving was big enough to take some home with... More

We visited the resturant post visit to zoo and family (including parents) were pretty hungry. Food was served in quick time and was pretty good. Special mention for their Naan... size reminds me of Punjabi by Nature back in India :). I found restaurant bit expensive compared to Redmond but then you need to pay some premium for vegetarian Indian... More

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!!
