    Being 500 miles away from home it is nice to be able to use Open-table to find great new (for us) restaurants to have a meal in a strange area. We were impressed and very much liked the buffet offered here and would return again and recommend the place to everyone who likes good Indian food. The only hugely disappointing thing is the strange policy of selling draft beers for $10/pint, yes $10 for domestic beers! Whew.

    Dined on 2/16/2014
    Based on yelp reviews, we decided to check this place out. The reviews were very good, and it never hurts to branch out and add another good Indian restaurant to the list, right? Started off with a flavorless chicken mulligatawny soup, which, shockingly, was $7 for a cup. Beer prices were decent, but go for the large bottles instead of the deceptively cheap (small) draughts. Three of the four members of my party ordered "spicy" dishes, and were double-checked by the waiter that we were ok with spicy. The food was mild-medium at best. Not what I expected or wanted. The chili naan had no chili flavor, the pashwari naan only tasted like nuts, no fruit. The papadums were undercooked, and, stuck to every surface of your teeth that they touched.

    Excellent northern Indian food in a quiet setting with attentive service that does not intrude. The complex aroma of a vast array of spices hits you as you enter, piquing the appetite. A wide variety of soups, salads and appetizers leaves you wanting more of the amazing flavors the chef teases out of a few simple ingredients. The began salad and mulligatawny soup are based on a handful of modest ingredients but pack intriguingly complex characters. The lamb boti was amazingly tender and flavorful, accompanied by a mint-cilantro-yogurt sauce that is to die for. The warm gajjar halwa is a perfect finish to the meal.

    NozferatuVIP
    Dined on 9/6/2013
    This is local to me so I wanted to try it. The flavours were pretty much all the same and way too sweet. The papadums were good but the "salsa" they brought out with it was just that...salsa...with LOADS of garlic...which is fine...but it's an Indian restaurant..not Mexican. The quality of the food was good...just the flavours were off.

    Food is always consistently good, service however is hit and miss, we were quickly attended to, ordered, food showed up, then were completely ignored, not a huge issue, but would have like at least a check in to see if there were any issues or if we needed anything else.....like filling empty water or soda classes

    Everything was served in a timely fashion, the food was hot and fresh, the waiters were patient and responsive when we were socializing, and the environment is definitely a plus. A flat screen TV was airing Bollywood music videos that kept up the energy and the ambience in the restaurant, even though it was only a Monday. Good for the whole family, but also fit for a date; the lighting is low but the energy is great. The food quality is amazing for the price. The Chicken Tikka and Lamb Kebab are delicious, and their Naan is delicious. Nothing was over or under spiced/flavored. You could have a generous amount of food with you and your date for under 40 dollars. Would definitely go back, but this time, I'm bringing my family!

    Delicious as ever for dinner (we usually come for lunch buffet, very flavorful indeed). Tried one of the new desserts, quite small in portion size but tasty and unique. Such a lovely atmosphere, would be more romantic with softer music though (energetic dance videos play on the television screen in the main dining room).

    This was our second visit to Flavor of India, this time for dinner (last time lunch buffet), and it did not disappoint! Only wish portions were a little larger, typically when we go for Indian at dinnertime we end up with some for the next day's lunch. Buffet is probably a better deal but definitely delicious food at any time of day.

    I had a business dinner at Flavor of India and found that the restaurant was quiet enough to allow for a discussion and we were able to conduct our business. Further, the food was fabulous, everyone was thrilled with the dishes they selected. The portions were tasty and abundant. I thought that the meal was an excellent value. I would recommend Flavor of India to anyone business or casual diner. I would definitely go there again the next time I am in Los Angeles.

    Really enjoyed the restaurant! Everything was absolutely delish! The restaurant was a little dark, but it was pretty enjoyable. It was also really sweet, they gave us a free appetizer since it was our first time visiting!! Don't quite remember the name of it (something salad) but it was made with eggplant. Wouldn't have ordered it on our own but it was super good!! Thanks Taste of India :] we will be back!!

    I met my girlfriend for lunch here and we both really enjoyed our meals. She had the lunch buffet and I had the chicken vindaloo lunch. I was able to sample some of the chutneys that my girlfriend had with her buffet goodies and they were tasty and spicy! The chicken vindaloo lunch came with a side of dal, green salad, and naan. I ate everything, it was delicious! I love Indian food and wish there was a Flavor of India close to my home - I live in Orange County.

    Very good Indian food in a nice setting; I had their butter chicken and it was very good. My wife thought that her chicken tikka was lacking in spices, but I thought it was also very good when I tasted it. Good desserts too-the lime mint sorbert and carrot pudding were very tasty. The service was good; it took awhile to get our check, but this seems to be the practice in most Indian restaurants---you have to ask for the check.
