My regular curry house which I go to has gone down hill of late, so armed with the motivation to try somewhere new, I was lured into trying the Taste of India by my brother-in law who lives near it and swears by it. So the four of us tried this place out to expand experience. To be very honest,... More

Really not good, we ordered a biryani and chicken Ceylon they both tasted the same, not really very spicy, chicken had a strange texture and not much if it. The the naan, raw! I could have cooked a better curry in the time we waited, won't be so lazy next time and save some money.

I have been going here for many years and only just got round to reviewing it. Normally have the good old chicken tikka masala and it is genuinely the best I have ever had so much flavour and at a decent price too. The waiters and owners are always very nice and it is clean and a nice atmosphere if... More

Having previously eaten at the Taste of India we were very surprised to find that there was only one other couple eating when we arrived (they soon left and we had the restaurant to ourselves for most of the evening). The meal was average and the staff were not very welcoming. Both the food and service fell well below par... More

Having spent some years living in West Yorkshire we have got used to a very high standard of Indian Cuisine and this being my first visit to an Indian restaurant in this area I was a little concerned that it wouldn't match what I had experienced before. However I have to say that the food was excellent and the service... More

Two curries, and loads of other bits ordered. Tasty enough, but the meat was pretty tough. Forgot discount. Not great. Not what it used to be.

Wanted to try the food here as I had heard good things about it. Unfortunately they got the order wrong. Their response was "mistakes happen" which of course they do but they didn't offer to resend the correct order, the implication being we had to lump it. So a big negative for attitude / service I'm afraid. The food quality... More

This was probably our third or fourth visit to Taste of India and not disappointed. Came with my husband and son, all had starters, mains, side dishes and drinks and came to a tad over £60 in total. Coconut fish soup was lovely and the king prawn biriyani was awesome, no skimping on the prawns. Massive portions which is just... More
