Taste of India II
As Taste of India enters its 27th year, in the heart of Staten Island, it continues to offer a sophisticated fine dining experience with effortlessly charming staff and discreet service. It is the reinvented combination of a restaurant, lounge, bar, and "INDUS" private event space.
At Taste of India, we invite you to take a culinary journey through India, to savor and discover new ingredients and dishes.
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.
Great food !!
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!
Great foos, always delicious. Lots of vegetarian choices - samosas, cauliflower and potato.
Ben a while since i’ve Been here, but the food is still really Good, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices. Definitely will go back again sooner.
Excellent as always- have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and the food and service are impeccable
The food and drinks were delicious! The vegetable samosas were fresh and the mint chutney was amazing! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone!
As always, this is a great Indian restaurant with authentic and delicious foods, which is why I have been frequenting this restaurant for over 30 years
Really nice restaurant , very good decor and even better food! Very filling !
Good food, good service. Can get noisy when it's crowded. Definitely worth checking out
Amazing food and atmosphere. If you have never tried Indian food before you should try this place because you will not be disappointed. Friendly staff and very clean business.
Thanks for a great meal! The service was wonderful! I can’t wait to come back!
Fabulous food. Great service. Lovely atmosphere. We are sure to return. Highly recommended.
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.
Delicious as usual. Taste of India never disappoints.

Taste of India II, is fantastic! We will definitely be back.
Good service. And Food
Beautiful room, great service , food was good . My first time there . I would definitely try again.
Amazing everything is all I can say. I can’t wait to go back.
I have been here last Saturday. I never tried Indian food before, this is my first time. I loved it and recommend it.
New Year’s Eve Dinner
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!
It was a great date night. Food presentation was beautiful and delicious
As always, terrific experience, delicious food. Sunday there is a buffet. Great way to try different items on the menu that I was curious about and able to enjoy to order at another time. Love this restaurant, always been a favorite of mine. Highly recommend.
It was a good experience, good food, good service
Taste of India II has been a family favorite for years, and continues to be. The food is always delicious and the space is beautiful.
Varied menu, excellent food. Had lamb chops, wife had veg dish, both very goog.
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.
I LOVE the food @ Taste of India. On weekends there is a buffet that is fantastic. Highly recommend. Owner and staff are very friendly. Great place
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.
Great food for a great price...perfect for sharing
great food, great service. They don't disappoint. Great for girls night or a date night
Very nice dinner experience.
Food is good.
I will visit again.
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.
