“Good Food, No Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

The food was good and it's great to have an Indian restaurant in Montana. The atmosphere was lacking especially since they charged prices that would indicate a more "fine dining" experience. Tables had a plastic sheet over the cloth tablecloth with ads for beer and belly dancing staring up at you. Decor was a mix of Indian cloth arrangements (which were nice) and beer signs. Flat screen TV was going with a DVD of India with chanting going the whole time, which by the end of dinner was getting down right annoying.

“Authentic good Indian Food, sparse atmosphere”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

We love their food - Billings finally has some authentic Indian Cuisine. Atmosphere is Spartan, though it's kinda fun watching Bollywood on their TV screens. We hope they stay in business.

“Great food!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

I had a Mango Lassi and Chicken Korma. It was delicous and was on my table pipping hot in less than 20 minutes. The people running it where very nice. If I lived in Billings I would eat here all the time.

“Way to go!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Taste of India has great food, service, and location! This little treasure is downtown Billings within walking distance of everything. I had the tikka masala and it was so good that the only disappointment was when I got full. I think it was the owner who served us and he was so helpful (I didn't know what to order and he suggested this for an Indian food beginner) and he was so cheerful that he added to the already nice atmosphere.

I'm a Billings local so I *know* how unadventurous the people in this city can by. However, if you want to find a safe place to step outside your comfort zone *this* is the place to do it! My only tip to the place is to ditch the American music and turn up the Bollywood!!

“Great food, basic surroundings.”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

Not a pretty place, but you can watch Bollywood on the TV screens while eating authentic Indian food.
