We've been going there for I think 40 years or close to it. We loved the food, the service, the ambiance. It always tastes as if they've just ground up the spices for us and then cooked the food (maybe they have!)
Even the food that isn't hot, is richly spiced.

Consistently delicious Sunday buffet. There's a good enough variety to please the less adventurous eaters, as well as those who would like to try something new.

We went to Taste of India II for my dad’s birthday and had an amazing time! The service was great as the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and fresh! And they surprised my dad with a birthday dessert! They really made it special and I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We are regulars at Taste of India, but our last visit was one of our most enjoyable dinners. We tried new dishes this visit including one of the specials. Food was excellent, and service, as always, was outstanding. The staff is very nice and attentive. We have yet to be disappointed at this restaurant as food and service is consistently good.

Authentic Indian food with a large variety of appetizers, salads, Naan breads, entrees, desserts and cocktails. The prices are fair and the ambience is lovely. The staff is both friendly and helpful. I’ve been dining at this restaurant for five years and I’ll continue to dine there and recommend it to others. Some of my favorites include their vegetable pakoras, vegetable samosas, lamb saag and chicken tikka Marsala. Go and enjoy!

I order or visit this restaurant frequently, but they are, unfortunately, inconsistent. Took a friend out for their birthday - they were kind enough to bring cake and sing. The cake was very cold and hard to eat with a fork. The lamb was so tough we couldn’t cut it with the knife on the table. Chicken in the chicken korma was pink inside. Just a little disappointed this time.

Every time we go here the food is outstanding. Some of the best Indian food I have eaten. We come here pretty frequently and will keep coming. It would be even better if the service improved. Often wait a long time for drinks and sometimes for food to come to the table.

The food is actually amazing. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the crab meat is imitation- I am not a fan of that and would not have ordered the seafood/crab masala if the menu hadn't concealed this. The shrimp were outstanding. The restaurant and bathrooms are beautiful. My vegan boyfriend was super thrilled with all that was available to him and he wants to go back frequently. Best vegetable Samosas we have ever had. The service could use improvement- granted they were busy, but they could have acknowledged us instead of ignoring us for 15 minutes in the beginning and while everyone else was eating but us. However, we will definitely be going back, and hopefully soon.

Love taste of India!! Ordered two new special items that were fantastic. The vegetable balls in coconut curry sauce and chicken in a ground cashew, ginger and garlic sauce that was perfect for my daughters.

Staff is amazing and incredible prices for what you get. Can’t wait to go back.

We often go and live taste of India II. Ordered a special we never had before that was excellent. The sweet and sour cauliflower. Mixed vegetables were deliciously spiced and naan bread warm and buttery. We all love the flax crackers and dips they put on the table to start.
