Good experience

When ordering online, you can select between fried in ghee or in oil (at least for the lentil dish I ordered under the vegetarian section). I actually trusted that my food was fully vegan, which I don't usually if I'm at an omni place. The dal came with rice, roti (I think? I'm not well versed in Indian bread, it was like a less pillowy Naan I felt, but not whole wheat as far as I could tell), and oddly, one thickly sliced raw carrot coin. I also got the samosas which came with a tamarind chutney. Seemed like it would've been a chill spot to sit and eat too :)

Surprisingly good

I was driving through on a road trip and, well, didn't have very high hopes for meat free food in Texarkana. Taste of India was surprisingly tasty and I will go back if I'm ever passing through. It's just off the East-West I30 so very easy to reach without going out of your way.

The portions were really big, like so big they lasted for two big meals. The pakora were super yummy and the mains also very good. The menu has meat but the non-meat stuff is clearly labelled and they cooked in oil not ghee. It's not the absolute best Indian food you'll ever eat but for the price and place it was excellent.

Bonus tip: if you have the time and need to stretch your legs on a nice day I recommend driving the 5-10 minutes up the road to Bringle Lake state park. There's lots of picnic benches and it's a wonderful spot for lunch and a stroll.

Pros: Huge portions, Tasty , Very close to highway and to state park

Cons: Restaurant itself in a fairly soulless strip-mall

We weren’t expecting food this delicious on our roadtrip through Texarkana, but wow were we surprised. We ordered two apps and three entrees to share, and genuinely couldn’t pick a favorite if we wanted to. I recommend this place if you’re looking for a good date spot or just a huge vegan feast. It was clearly made with love! Would be five stars if happy cow allowed it!

Nothing special, but a sorely needed option in Texarkana

I am a big fan of Indian food, but I didn't think this place was anything special. Thankfully, there is a separate vegetarian menu with vegan items clearly labeled, so you don't have to interrogate the waitstaff about ingredients in order to find a suitable dish. (NOTE: There are other "veggie" items in other sections of the menu, such as veggie samosas and veggie momo, that may possibly be vegan- would have to ask the staff.) Our waiter was kind and attentive, and was wearing both a face mask and gloves which we appreciated. The meal didn't break the bank and we had enough food for leftovers. It was a little confusing finding the address for this place since it apparently used to be at another location (possibly within a mall?) but the current location on St. Michael is nice, clean, and spacious.

The food was decent, but not amazing. We dined in and the water (as well as the soda) had this weird, foul taste to it- we were only in town temporarily and went here once so I'm not sure if this is a daily occurrence or not (we did go to another restaurant with normal-tasting water so I don't think it's necessarily a Texarkana problem).

Overall, it's not anything to write home about but let's be real--if you're stuck in Texarkana, you don't exactly have a ton of options and this is much better than being dragged to some godawful steak chain and spending $15 on some steamed veggies and a baked potato.

Pros: clearly labeled vegan options, decent portions, clean

Cons: food just okay, funky tasting water
