    This place is incredible. Hands down the best Indian food I've had in Avery very long time. Service was spectacular, as well.

    Mango lamb curry!

  • SouthernBeets

    My favorite Indian food in Seattle. Try the iced chai, and they make a great saag. Naan is huge, so order accordingly.

    So good. They gave us a free app and free dessert for no reason! The naan is MASSIVE and yummy. Chicken Tikki Masala was superb, so were the beef samosas. Definitely will be back.

    It's ok if you like Indian food

    Good food, environment is a little spooky. Way too many people are working and they end up watching you the whole meal.

    The butter chicken and masala chai are too die for!

    I would be satisfied with just the bottomless chai and mango cheesecake, but they had to pop my buttons with delicious curries, too! Try the spiced Tandoori chicken, if you want a less dense dish

    Everything is good here! Tasty stuffed naan, curries, and the portions are large. They served us a Pakora appetizer and mango cheesecake dessert gratis! I'd recommend reservations on a weekend.

    Went because of the reviews. Only ordered stuff from the tandoor (clay oven) and it wasn't good at all. Also the salad (lettuce, onions, carrots) had stale, old produce. Will not repeat.

    Delicious garlic naan!

    Now with a full bar. They just opened it.

    Probably the best North Indian cuisine in North Seattle.

    Dave Peck · August 7, 2014
  • Alaa S.

    By far the best Indian food you can get in Seattle! Delicious food, huge portions, and great service. Everything on the menu is worth it.

    Still my favorite Indian restaurant in the city. Too bad I live in Lynnwood or I'd come by more often!

    This place is awesome. Reasonably priced, and they give you a different free starter and desert each time you come. Their naan is amazing as well!

    Chai is awesome :) and butter chicken is too good. Make sure you ask waiter to make it spicy.

    Awesome food. Chai here is must try!

    Shreyas Karnik · February 21, 2013

    Delicious lunch. The bottomless chai is well worth $3.

  • Pirq

    Lively dining atmosphere with delicious food and attentive service. You'll love the unique appetizers and huge portion sizes- leftovers for days! You also can't beat the Pirq deals available there! :)

    Try: Palak Paneer. Tasty.

    As an Indian man and someone who has tried virtually every Indian joint in town, I can safely say this is the best and most consistent hands down. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Amazing service!! I don't think I was able to get my water or chai tea past 3/4 full without getting it refilled. They gave us a complimentary appetizer and dessert! New favorite Indian restaurant!

    The Butter Chicken Masala at Taste of India is served with a buttery masala sauce that finishes the dish smoothly with its rich combination of fresh cream and tomato puree. Read more

    Bottomless Chai Tea, amazing Indian cuisine, plus if they ask for a dessert menu, say no, and they'll give you dessert anyway!

    Lydia Kye · August 17, 2011
  • Zach H.

    Chicken Tikka Masalla and Garlic Naan for the win!

    Zach Hodgson · May 28, 2011
  • Rachel S.

    I appreciate good service, but these guys checked in with my table like every 3 minutes. Overkill!

    Rachel S · January 27, 2011
  • Suma K.

    Probably my favorite Indian place in Seattle. Lots of freebies, fast service, and great for groups. Tends to be on the milder side, so def ask for medium hot and above if you want to feel the spice.

    High five if you get to the bottom of your water glass. If you're thirsty, this is the place to be.

    They once had a wonderful beer list. Now they have none. The terrible (yet oddly overbearing) service was tolerable when drinking. New ownership? I won't be back.

    Best Indian food ever! Always treated fantastic by the staff

    If you want to branch out from tikaa masala, but want that rich, creamy curry flavor, try chili madras masala.

    Nicholas Rebo · May 15, 2010
  • Velvetica

    The chai is amazing!

    Turn around and go to Cedars

    The tandoori salmon is wonderful. And the chai is bottomless. Regulars are offered free appetizers and dessert.

    W Abbey · February 3, 2010
  • Valor P.

    The Chai is bottomless and is as addictive as crack.

    Valor Poland · November 19, 2009
  • Jonathan Q.

    medium spicy is actually fairly mild

    Jonathan Quicke · August 26, 2009
  • peter l.

    get the bottomless iced or hot chai.
