i've been going to taste of india on and off for years now. i guess i have kind of a love, hate relationship with the place. the staff is always very friendly, and they remember your face. the owners are almost always around making sure you're happy. and the food really is pretty tasty - i can't say i've ever had a meal there that i disliked. so why the lukewarm review? two things: first and foremost, the place is a bit of a dive. i've been going there for over ten years, and i swear they haven't dusted the fake plants that adorn every inch of the dining room in that time. they haven't thrown up a coat of paint or changed the carpet either. i can't tell you how many times i've got a plate at the lunch buffet that had some schmutz on it. i know this will be the kiss of death for some people, but it's convenient and tasty so we never seem to completely get away from the place. secondly, the food is heavy. there's a lot of oil, and you can definitely leave feeling like you just sucked down the contents of a fryalator. it's the kind of indian food you taste for three hours after you eat it. but it's good!
Pros: excellent service, good prices, tasty food
Cons: heavy food, the place needs to be hosed down with bleach
