“Fantastic Indian Food”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

The food at torch is delicious. Great variety and not too spicy. Must have the chicken tikka and saag paneer. Also, the dal halva is out of this world.

“We loved it!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

My son & DIL took me & hubby for my 60th birthday dinner. We know very little about Indian food, but I know we LOVED what we were served. Absolutely yummy! Their location is the old Ripley's Believe It or Not building, lots of space. The main dining room and bar has a lot of seating, large circular booths and tables. Only a couple of tables were occupied when we arrived, we were seated at a large booth. Great waiter "Dan", helped us choose dishes. The food is served family style so we could all share the different dishes. My favorite was the lamb dish - Shahi Korma. Dan brought us Galub Jamum for my birthday treat (on the house). Here's a list of what all we had - I think the bill was about $112.00
Vegetable Samosas
Coconut Rice
Jasmine Rice
Garlic Naan
Potato Naan
Shrimp Saag
Shahi Korma (lamb)
Chicken Tikka Masala
Chicken Makhani
Mango Lassi
Chai Tea
Kingfisher beer
Galub Jamum (donut balls soaked in rose water & honey)

“A surprising good restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I went to this restaurant because iit was conveniently next door to the hotel I was staying in. Not knowing what to expect my sister, niece, girl friend and i decided to give it a try. The restaurant was very up scale looking inside as we were very casually dressed. The menu had a variety of dishes from India, Thailand and China. We each ordered a different item off the menu we were very happily surprised how well good each item was and the amount that was serviced to us. I would rate the service and food here as being very good and would recommend anyone who like Asia food to give the Torch restaurant a try.
