Experience the best Indian dining in the Richmond area at Taste of India where we create authentic dishes infused with fresh spices and the flavor of old India. Lovers of Indian food will appreciate the effort and passion we put into each entree while we work tirelessly to offer uncompromising quality and dedication to customer service. The warm and inviting atmosphere is one you'll recognize as soon as you walk through the door. Our Tandoori Oven Chef Specialties are always a hit, with favorites like Tandoori Chicken, Boti Kebab, or Malai Tikka. Our meats, seafood, poultry and vegetables are marinated in yogurt, herbs and a special combination of delectable and aromatic spices for 24 hours. The pieces are skewered and baked to perfection, yielding a unique savory charcoal flavor infused into the food and resulting in extreme tenderness. You and your guests will be sure to leave satisfied. Taste of India also has plenty of appetizers and breads to share, as well as chicken, lamb, and Halal items that will make your mouth water for more. Join us at Taste of India for weekly dinner specials, a lunch buffet, and a Wednesday night buffet. We have a large number of vegetarian menu items as well. Whatever the occasion, make it one to remember with the authentic flavors at Taste of India.
