After many years I decided to go back for dinner on a recent trip to Richmond and without a doubt the food is still excellent. It was so good that I went twice in a week. The first night was Wednesday evening and I did not know that they were having a buffet for dinner which they do every Wednesday... More

This our go-to restaurant for fantastic Indian food in the Richmond area. It's tucked away in a small shopping plaza just east of Midlothian and Robious. We often find ourselves their on Wednesday evening buffet nights. Tonight, even in a torrential thunderstorm, most tables were filled. They have a very classy decorum, friendly wait staff and hostesses, and terrific food.... More

We just dropped in on this restaurant because we like authentic Indian dishes. We had the tandoori platter which was cooied very hot (temperature) and well spiced. We worried when we walked in and did not see Indian folks, but they showed up later in the evening. The price was reasonable and the portions generous. We would return.

3 of us had dinner here. 4 different dishes with all fairly authentic and differentiated tastes. All of us liked it. only funny thing was that they had glenn miller style music on in a place like that. When asked, they indicated that their guests had complained about the music so they switched to something neutral. Can you believe that?... More

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.
