I was so excited to find an Indian restaurant near my hotel on my trip to Pensacola, since my husband only likes Indian cuisine. Food was OK but the experience was ruined by the people managing this place. I went here twice. First time was for dinner, I asked for a couple of bowls, our server brought us the wrong... More

Ruchira, while it's upsetting to read this as a reflection of your experience with us, there are a couple of discrepancies that have drawn our attention. To begin with, our philosophy at Taste of India is that the guests are always our first priority. That said, we have no male managers at our restaurant, so we're confused as to which... More

The food is yummy and the non-veg options in the buffet are varied, however they were not being replenished quickly enough, even though when we went there wasn't much of a crowd. Naan was hidden somewhere & difficult to find. The price at 14.99/adlt & 6.99 kid abv 2 seemed a bit too much.

We want to give you the excellent recipes you love while making sure that every menu item is readily available.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be going back. Our food was suggested by the owner (we think), and she could not have picked out two better entrees for newcomers. My husband had the Goat Bhoona and I had the Malai Kebab. Excellent choices! The goat was spicy (he ordered "medium" heat) and the kebab was very... More

The tandoori was soft, mushy and flavorless and the rice portions were small. But there was redemption in the tika masala, which was flavorful and spiced perfectly. The buffet is tiny by any standard. There are few options for Indian food in Pensacola but I wouldn't repeat this experience.

Truman, this is incredibly disappointing to read. As a restaurant that prides itself on our authentic Indian recipes, we want to make sure that every dish lives up to our standards. That said, we wish we had the chance to discuss this during your time of visit, and we do hope we'll be able to share another side of our... More

My boyfriend and I love to go for the lunch buffet. Neither of us typically like buffets but we always enjoy it here. The food is always fresh and hot! Very clean restaurant and super friendly staff!

We had lunch here becasue it was close the the office. The buffet is limited and while not bad, I had had much better Indian food. The goat was the best thing on the buffet and it was quite good. I would have liked to see a curry offering other than just shrimp curry

Hey there! It's pretty cool knowing that we're a lunch option so close to your office, but it is disappointing to know that our buffet didn't stand out like it should. We do offer a variety of options from the buffet, but at the same time, we have many more dishes that you can order from the menu. If there's... More

Took my girlfriend to Taste of India in Pensacola and had a great time! The younger gentleman, (I'm assuming) possibly son of the owners was so welcoming and explained everything to us.

We at THE TASTE OF INDIA offer a richly-varied menu of high quality ingredients, wholesome curries and house toasted spices and spice mixes. All of our food is freshly-prepared on the premises with a lot of attention to detail. It is our hope that you leave us satisfied and with a desire that keeps you coming back.
