We have eaten at several Indian restaurants and always look for one when we are in a new city. We were welcomed warmly as we had made a reservation using Open Table The owner (I think) gave us some suggestions based on our experience at other restaurants. The food was served quite soon after we ordered and it was delicious.... More

We have been here countless times over the past 3 years, and have never had a meal that disappoints. The service is always top notch, and food as fresh as you could want.

First visit and was disappointed that food was lukewarm and did not taste fresh. The customer service was good.

I was so excited to find an Indian restaurant near my hotel on my trip to Pensacola, since my husband only likes Indian cuisine. Food was OK but the experience was ruined by the people managing this place. I went here twice. First time was for dinner, I asked for a couple of bowls, our server brought us the wrong... More

Ruchira, while it's upsetting to read this as a reflection of your experience with us, there are a couple of discrepancies that have drawn our attention. To begin with, our philosophy at Taste of India is that the guests are always our first priority. That said, we have no male managers at our restaurant, so we're confused as to which... More

The food is yummy and the non-veg options in the buffet are varied, however they were not being replenished quickly enough, even though when we went there wasn't much of a crowd. Naan was hidden somewhere & difficult to find. The price at 14.99/adlt & 6.99 kid abv 2 seemed a bit too much.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be going back. Our food was suggested by the owner (we think), and she could not have picked out two better entrees for newcomers. My husband had the Goat Bhoona and I had the Malai Kebab. Excellent choices! The goat was spicy (he ordered "medium" heat) and the kebab was very... More

The tandoori was soft, mushy and flavorless and the rice portions were small. But there was redemption in the tika masala, which was flavorful and spiced perfectly. The buffet is tiny by any standard. There are few options for Indian food in Pensacola but I wouldn't repeat this experience.

India, the land of the enchanted, with its varied cultural practices, is tied together by the invisible commonality of its exotic cuisine. It is celebrated for the variety of its dishes based on the artful combination of spices developed over many centuries. Let us thus embark on a culinary journey through the rich traditions and delicate flavors that symbolize the sub-continent.
We at THE TASTE OF INDIA offer a richly-varied menu of high quality ingredients, wholesome curries and house toasted spices and spice mixes. All of our food is freshly-prepared on the premises with a lot of attention to detail. It is our hope that you leave us satisfied and with a desire that keeps you coming back.
