This restaurant is now called "Taste of India" and the older reviews mentioned here are no longer relevant. We are extremely familiar with Indian food and this is as good or better than some of the more expensive Manhattan Indian restaurants. The place is small...More

I'm a little perturbed. I see a review here (a one star which mentions all sorts of horrors at Kismet) which I believe to be the review of another Indian Restaurant owner. So, since I visited Poughkeepsie last week--again, with the family stuff!--I ate here...More

While I was in Poughkeepsie on a family matter, I stopped in, hoping to grab some lunch. I arrived a little late (3:30) and noted for future reference that they have daily lunch specials of $5.95 (ending at 3 pm) and special pricing on Tuesdays,...More

Looking for lunch near Vassar and decided to give it a try. We usually choose restaurants which have a full buffet and Kismat doesn't have that option on weekdays so we went for the second-best option which was the $5.95 lunch special. We chose a...More

My husband and I stopped in on a whim. We had papadum, shamm savera (spinach and cotrage cheese dumplings - which had been frozen)- vegetable samosa, which my husband deemed "ok", and then good chicken tikka masala and very good shrimp curry, nan and raita....More

OK place, could be cleaner. Decent Indian food, but not amazing. Most dishes tasted very sweet. Close to Vassar and probably only Indian food.

This place is a health hazard. I don’t typically write reviews, but every so often an experience comes along that compels one to speak out so that others can learn from my mistake. While visiting Poughkeepsie, I decided to find a place to get some...More

I've eaten a lot of Indian food, and I loved this place. The waiter (owner?) was friendly and helpful, and asked any questions we had, and gave us lunch special prices on a Sunday! The food was tasty, fresh, and every dish was very different....More

I met a friend here for lunch; they had never had Indian food before and were up for something new. We had the Chicken Tikka Masala lunch special. It was fine. I thought the sauce for this was a little thin but flavorful. We also...More

We had lunch here today. The trip advisor reviews looked pretty good so why not. We do not care if a restaurant is fancy. We have had South Indian, North Indian and Pakistani food in many major cities in the United States, from street vendors...More
