“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Have enjoyed the food at this modest restaurant several times. It's a great place for a delicious thali lunch plate: you select three dishes from veggie or meat menus. Rice, bread and dessert are included. The naan is perfect, and the seasonings just right. Especially enjoyed the creamy saag paneer!

“Worth a visit for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

This was our first time eating here. The name of the restaurant is now Taste of India. It is very casual. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 young kids. The lunch special was $7 each and included a generous portion of rice, naan, and our choice of 3 dishes. I had the saag paneer, chicken tikka masala, and the eggplant/potato dish. There was also rice pudding included. It was very good. The server kindly brought two plates for the kids.My 4 year old couldn't get enough of the chicken! We will definitely be back.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This was my wife first encounter with Indian food. We started ordering samosas and parathas. Delicious. The mango lassi was so refreshing. We ordered a vegetarian plate and a shrimp stew. My wife was totally immersed in the experience of dealing with all those flavors. My food also was well done and very tasty. We found the place by chance and we were glad we visited. Also we found it very well priced.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

This restuarant is quite small and simple unlike other restaurants. But the food here is amazingly delicious. Shrimp Bhuna is a must try.
Any one who is looking for a good Indian restuarant home cooked food taste, this is the one. We absolutely loved it.
