Taste of India
Posted by lessthanthrilled on 02/05/2008
I went for the lunch buffet on the recommendation of a friend. The food was good, but... The 'hostess' (I use the term loosely) was on the phone at the front of the restaurant having a long and loud personal conversation for the entire time I was there! She did not even take the phone from her ear as I paying my bill. Though the food was good, I would not go back again. It's not worth the risk of having an otherwise enjoyable meal ruined because of a total lack of manners and/or customer appreciation on the part of the help.

The food is great! Tender chicken, really good sauces and sides, good rice and shrimp. We got take out, so I don't know about service other than that they were polite on the phone and our food was ready when we got there. This will definitely be our main Indian food source from now on. A little pricey, but given the portion sizes and the quality I think it's worth it.

Been there once, and would never go there again. Mediocre food, customer serve and waiters, who would put your check as soon as you are seated for lunch(lunch buffet). No sense of decency or manners. They dont care as they get some crowd. Also their another restraunt in Exton is equally poor. Together these clowns do an excellent job of giving a poor name to real indian food and hospitality.

I have ate Indian food in an umpteen number of Indian restaurants. Many of these restaurants don't cater well to the Indian diaspora. But, believe me "Taste of India" absolutely ******rocks*******. In the Lunch buffet on weekends you get a wide variety of dishes. The platter serves both Veggies and Non-Veggies equally well. And each dish is tastier than the other. A horde of desserts, salad and chat (occasionally) awaits you in the buffet. The service is also quite decent. Gives you a good bang for your buck. Best Indian restaurant in this corner of the city!! My advice, do give this restaurant a visit. You will simply love the food.

I have been to many Desi (south asian) places, but the service here was poor! I am never going there. There are other places closer to that area that have much better food and better service!

The food is good. However, the service on a crowded Sunday afternoon was shocking, to say the least. Admittedly, there was a long line of waiting customers, but the manner in which the waiter yanked away the place mat from under the plates while two of our party of six were still eating was downright rude. Mind you, these were the place mats under the plates of the two people who were eating out of these plates. When we pointed this out to the person who seemed to be the flustered owner, he was equally rude. Given that we all love the food, I hope they learn how to deal with customers on crowded days without getting annoyed.

Of the many Indian restaurants in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, A Taste of India is one of the best. Wonderful lunch buffet with many items, most of which are very richly flavored and spiced. Standout dishes in the buffet include the chana masala, alu gobi, saag paneer, and chicken tikka masala. Mulligatawney soup is quite good, also. The two salads are full of a variety of vegetables. Many chutneys to choose from, as well as a very rich and creamy raita. A very large variety of desserts to choose from. Mango pudding is good, as is the kheer on days when it is not thin. Gajar (Carrot) Halwa is very rich and delicious. On some days, this place is very crowded for lunch making mealtime a noisy and less than relaxing time to eat, but that's the price you pay for many other people liking the food and selection. Lunch buffet during the week consists of soup, nann, pakoras, at least four vegetarian dishes, two to four chicken dishes, and another non-poultry meat dish, salads, chat (sometimes), chutneys, raita, and nearly ten desserts, including several kinds of fresh fruit. I may have left out something, but that should cover the main buffet items. Most dishes are more flavorful than what you will find at most other Indian restaurants in the area. Some people note that these dishes are made with a healthy amount of cream and oil, but they contribute to the rich and flavorful taste. A few dishes I have had here have been done better elsewhere (such as the dal makhani which is tasteless and much better on days when it is made with red kidney beans), but in general, almost everything is very tastefully done and memorable. You will leave with a very pleasant taste in your mouth from the delicious food. Trays of food are consistently replenished quickly unlike some other Indian restaurants that can leave trays without food for sustained periods of time. The manager is very attentive to ensuring that his staff takes care of affairs, i.e. taking care of customer's needs,
