Good lunch buffet

4 Posted on 11 / 09 / 2013

Went to this restaurant while in Melbourne because of Happy Cow reviews. I love Indian food, have Indian friends who cook for me and take me to restaurants they think are good. Taste of India compares favorably. They have a large buffet for lunch for about $13. Not a lot of attention from wait staff - they don't seem to have assigned tables. We just helped ourselves and flagged someone down to get our drinks. Still it was a good lunch

Bad food

1 Posted on 11 / 27 / 2012

Food was very bland and not authentic. Twenty minutes after I requested fresh chilies for some spice, they brought me 4 half rotten chilies. I am used to Indian staff sometimes not always being friendly, but these people were purposely mean. The staff was a foreign mix rather than all Indians, so I think that is why it didn't taste like Indian food.


Cons: bland, not fresh

Out of This World Scrumptious!

We have been going to Taste of India since they first opened in Melbourne and have never found another Indian restaurant that can even come close in taste and quality. I even overheard an Indian customer comment to his server that he couldn't find food this good on his latest trip to India! Even though I haven't visited India, I can believe his statement. It's just that good!

If you go for their lunch buffet, you can enjoy about 3/4 of the food as a vegetarian. However, if you are vegan, it's probably best to order off the menu, since they use butter and cheese in most of their dishes. On their menu, they have an entire huge vegetarian section, for each appetizers and entrees. And, they will take special requests for vegan and allergies.

The servers are all wonderful and super professional. Some are a bit shy b/c of the language, but most are very friendly. The manager is fabulous and can answer any question you may have. Super professional and super nice.

They are so good that they now have four locations throughout Florida (Tampa, Brandon, and W. Palm Beach, as well as the original in Melbourne).

Pros: Taste, taste and taste!!, Yummy!!, Did I mention the taste?
Cons: None
