My wife and I went here for dinner. We have a friend who lives in the University District and he loves this restaurant, and he said it was recommended to him by an Indian friend. The place was packed in a Saturday night. There were a dozen people waiting inside to be seated, and a dozen more outside. But they... More

Every time that I have been to Taste of India the food has been very good. The veg. samosa's are the best in town. The portions are generous. The service is good.

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
