Avoid – Besides the staff not being friendly, I left a cash tip for the lunch buffet. When I saw my credit card statement, the same amount had also been added to my credit card. The lasi (yoghurt) drink had turned and made me violently sick that night. The staff had their infant roaming around, sucking a pacifier and touching everything.
Worst service – Bad customer service, food, not polite and extremely rude
I have been to this restaurant and I guarantee you that you will never be able to taste such horrible Indian food in your life time. The service is so bad that you would feel like you went there to beg for food. All the people who have given a good rating to this restaurant must have been either paid by the owners or must be the owners themselves. It would be more appropriate if the name is changed to 'BAD TASTE OF INDIA' because thats what it is.
Taste Of India SUCKKKKKKKS!!!!! – I am a desi and have eaten in many indian restaurants. But this one is worst. .The food was yucks..tasteless. Service is bad too. Both are terrible. I would never recommend this restaurant to anybody.
Avoid any day, any time – It all started with me and my friend on a business trip to Phoenix landed here for a dinner. Being brought up in India and staying in NJ currently, I have had all types of Indian food.
So, here we are at this restaurant for dinner. The disaster started with our serving of Papadam. They were semi-cooked and soggy. I returned them and got new ones freshly cooked. Then came Mango Lassi, it was the only thing that night for which I am giving this restaurant 1 star.
My main course order Vegetarin thali. More horrible experience is here. The samosas were just potato stuffing. pakoras were good. Then came the main thali. I had requested roti instead of naan and in past usually all restaurants just exchange it with no cost. Surprisingly I was told that I will be charged extra for it. I agreed and when roti came with thali it tasted like naan......
Vegetable korma was sweet, matar paneer was ok, daal was ok.
Children should never hear the song they played, it was abusive.
I plan not to visit this restaurant in next two weeks while I am at Phoenix.
Horrible food is an understatement – The pickles for the pappad came right from the freezer with a crust of ICE on it.
Samosas totally bland.
Asked for Rotis and got Naan (and the server insist that its roti)
Oh by the way when you go for the Thali and ask them to replace the Naan with the Roti you get charged extra for the Roti. (In my case I was charged for the Nan - if you get it)
Over all food quality very poor
Service really bad
Food is bad
Do not go there even if its the only place on earth that has food.
Horrible – I tried their buffet on a weekend. The food was horrible. Not a single dish was good. The pakodas and tandoori chicken was too salty, the sambhar was not even sambhar, rice was not well cooked, the idlis were just lumps of dough without any taste.
I came out feeling cheated and consider this restaurant bad bad publicity for indian restaurants.
best chicken tikka masala in phoenix – Its the best chicken tikka masala I have eaten any where and has good selection of beer . Most indian resturant do not have good selection of beer. If you like spicy food and beer I highly recomend it by the way naans are good too.
Good food and service, needs some upkeep – My friends and I have enjoyed everything we've eaten at Taste of India. Love their garlic naan, and their lamb boti saag. The complimentary papadum with a mint condiment are delicious and a nice extra. The service was very attentive, if not cheery. The only negative is cleanliness - visible dirt on tablecloth, blinds, wall. Some sprucing up and regular upkeep would make a big difference, bringing the ambience up to the level of the food.
Taste of India no more – If you thought the chef was gone before, he is definatly gone now, along with the original owner/manager. The food is all different, from the naans to the cinnamon iced tea, nothing tasts like it use to. The service has also dropped, and that is not a small issue since the service at this place was always marginal. It is way off the mark now. I have been going to this place for around 10 years, I see no reason to ever go there again.
