Absolutely delicious coconut curry chicken. I'm drooling at 6am while writing this review! My niece was visiting from a small town up north (no Indian food!) and we googled the nearest place in Pacific Grove. Taste of India popped up and we were VERY happy with our choice! Food arrived fast and hot. Tons of basmati rice, incredible naan (flat bread), and enough curry chicken to last for a full meal of leftovers. Really excellent food. Ok, I'm calling them again tonight! :0

By far the best Indian food in the region. Not just a taste but representing the very excellence of India!


We had tamale pie, pumpkin curry, yellow curry and roasted vegetables, with a dinner salad to share. They were all different, and flavorful. My roasted veggies were lightly spiced, and came with a thick dressing that enhanced the flavor. The 'tamale' pie was definitely not what we're used to getting at the Mexican restaurants, but yummy, and recommended They recommended mushrooms with the roasted veggies and tamale pie. What we got was for $7 a couple tablespoons of of loose orange threads, I estimate at 2 grams, on a bed of arugula. For $6 there were 6 slices of mushroom--about 2" in diameter-- buried in the tamale pie. We waited 45 minutes from the order to serving

Went there for lunch right when they opened. My two friends both got butter chicken and I got the chicken tikka masala and garlic naan. It came out quick and was some of the best curry I've ever had. And I love curry.

Great place! Always fresh and simply delicious. Spotlessly clean! Their tandoori chicken and chicken/lamb curry are the best. Garlic naan is also freshly made. Highly recommend.

My neighborhood Indian place. Unbeatable tikka masala. The saagwala and vindaloo are good, too.

This place had awesome reviews so we decided to order to go while visiting monterey.The tandoori mix grill was a waste of our money. It was a mixture of 2 types of chicken, shrimp and lamb.The chicken was overly cooked and dry. You couldn't even chew it without your jaws starting to hurt. And we only got 3 small pieces of lamb which was dry and over cooked and only 4 pieces of shrimp which was ok. The cost for this was $20.....big rip-off. We ended up throwing it away.We also ordered chicken tikka which was had a sweet taste when its suppose to be spiced.The lamb curry had a weird taste and smell. Like they used old meat.The rice was dry and hard. Definitely not made fresh that day.We asked for side of chillies and onions and got charged for that when its supposed to be included in our order.Do not recommend this place.Too expensive and the food isnt that good at all.

I've been a regular at taste of India since I moved to Monterey. The food is always amazing and the service is great! Definitely my go to Indian restaurant in the area.

A lady and her 3 little girls that I met at the park recommended Taste of India and I am SO Happy they did. I ordered the Lamb Vindaloo and asked the gal who took my phone order what other lamb dish she recommended. She suggested the Lamb Korma. Lamb Korma in a cashew cream sauce is now my favorite! Make sure you tell them mild if you don't want it spicy. Absolutely Delicious!

I understand that you're busy and it's not your fault that the Uber app was being weird.. I got a notification telling me my order is ready but they didn't even confirm the order and talked to me rude. at least be empathetic to a frustrated customer and talk to me kindly and not show you're frustrated and annoyed too.
