A word from Tashan
A traditional Indian greeting awaits you at your table: "Namaste" which "welcomes the divine within you."

Tashan takes its inspiration from an age old approach to fine dining. Traditional Indian royalty would graze their way through a succession of grilled delicacies from the Tawa, Sigri, Tandoor and then finish with a single dish of a special curry or grand biryani.

We invite you to immerse yourself in 'Our India' exotically fused with a unique modern ethnic edge. The communal dining service lets you share our small and intricate entrees.

All our dishes are cooked to order and will come to your table the moment they are ready, so expect a gentle flow of dishes and let us help you through this journey of a memorable meal.

If you cannot find the reservation time you are looking for, please call us to inquire about seating at our beautiful lounge area, or outdoor cafe.

    We have hesitated eating Indian food; however, Tashan was probably one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. We went for restaurant week but the 4 course menu came straight from the regular menu. I cannot say enough about the presentation, flavors and quality of this meal. The excellent service rounded out this memorable meal. We are planning to return soon!

    We were there for restaurant week, so the menu was limited. This was a good thing for us, as we didn't know much about Indian food, so it was a guess as to which courses we would order. We each ordered something different, which gave us the opportunity to try something maybe tastier from the other's plate. There is an outstanding waiter, Jason, who explained every course to the couple sitting beside us. But we had already ordered by that time, so we didn't have the advantage of selecting meals by the knowledge of this young man. However, we had a very pleasant evening. The chef let us watch him cook some naan up close. It was fun to be able to watch the chefs cook from our tables also. We will return--but we will ask for Jason.

    Went to Tashan for a celebration after reading online reviews. Had a great dinner! Service was friendly. Chose the Chef's 4 course dinner, there were at least two vegetarian options for each course and the friendly waiter advised us to order both since dinner was "family style". The second course had only one vegetarian option and the waiter and chef accomodated us by providing another as well. The Tashan Creme Brulee with the Jamun heart was delightful! What a wonderful combination! Would love to take friends and family to Tashan.

    Me and my wife recently went here for her birthday and were very impressed by the friendly and accomdodating staff. The "Tashan" signature drink and their take on an "old-fashioned" were both superbly refreshing in the summer heat but their wine-by-the-glass menu was somewhat limited. For dinner, we ordered the chef's sampler and were impressed by both the quantity and quality of the many dishes. The shrimp and lamb dishes were especilly delicious and I truly recommend this restaurant for couples or groups that wants a cozy and stylish atmosphere to go with exciting Indian cousine.

    We came here on a Living Social voucher for a tasting menu for two. It was one of the best meals either of us have had in the city. The food was incredible, the service was attentive but not annoying, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I would recommend this place to anyone. One of the hidden gems of Philly, to be sure.

    I wound up using Tashan as a backup plan after Karma very unprofessionally called me on the day of my reservation to cancel it due to them deciding to close early due to Labor Day. I'm so glad they did. The environment, the attitudes of the staff, the quality of the food and the overall experience brightened both me and my date's evening. Will definitely be going back!

    First, the food was great, but more importantly, the service is outstanding. Our waiter was efficient and always smiling. The person who brought us food (yeh, they have their own system of serving) explained every dish nicely. We had the Chef's 5-course tasting menu. Great value, exceeded my expectation by far. There're two of us and there are like 8 or 9 different dishes (I lost count in the end) Everything was innovative and delicious, to die for! This was not the first time I went to Tashan, but they still managed to surprise me. We are planning to go back for my husband's birthday next month. By the way, there are discount vultures for Chef's menu available on those online vulture sites and Monday night is BYOB.

    We have been here many times, and Tashan is consistently outstanding. It's a great place for large groups (especially for a late brunch) as well as an intimate meal. They clearly take pride in their food.The chef's tasting with wine pairings is a wonderful way to experienc the eclectic menu, which is creative without compromising quality. Tashan has wowed everyone from our American born nieces to my India-raised parents.

    Tashan was great, but Open Table mistakingly showed them to be a BYOB with Free Corkage which was not the case. This is not the first time it's happened to me using Open Table (Doc Magrogans Oyster House in West Chester, PA is another) and should be corrected immediately; I don't like paying a $25.00 fee and giving a zero tip as a result. Please do something about this problem ASAP. Thanks!

    Our party of four, which included my 12 year old daughter, had such a wonderful meal at Tashan. The service was just the right level of attentive, and the waiters had great personalities. I highly encourage diners to try the 4 course chef's tasting. Each course had 3-4 different dishes, and all were so beautifully. We had so many favorites: the calamari, scallops, lamb chops, Waygu beef satay, goat cheese naan, vegetables, chocolate tea, crunchy salad, potato lollipop, shrimp, red snapper, sorbet, creme Brule with rose water doughnut. .. everything! The black walled decor is really cool and adds to the overall ambience. This is a really strange thing to say, but check the very different bathroom.

The food delicious and the half bottle of wine was just perfect. I can't wait to go back again. I think they need take home bags with their own name on it rather than the restaurant name whose food is not as good as theirs.

    One of the more memorable dining experiences of my life. Given the great reviews I went in with pretty high expectations, and the experience more than lived up to it. All three dishes I had were top-notch. One of the better lamb chops preparations I've tasted. Tipsy cake was very, very tasty (it's the house specialty desert); Lastly, the service was wonderful. Not overbearing, but exceptionally attentive. The sommelier left a bit to be desired, I will recommend everyone to visit tashan

    We had out-of-town guests with gluten and dairy sensitivities who requested Indian food. We couldn't have been more delighted with our experience at Tashan the other night. Our server suggested an appropriate number of menu items to order, and every single one of them was PHENOMENAL. The restaurant's a tad dark, but it's quiet and perfect for a business dinner or old friends reconnecting.

    Excellent food, not so excellent service. Requested outdoor seating when reserving through opentable, if available. Arrive for reservation and there was no acknowledgment of my request, which would have been appropriate even if no space was available. After being seated, it took a long time to receive a wine/beer/drink list. Three waiters running around, and no one seemed to know who was responsible for our table. Servers seemed harried. Food was excellent. Would return again and hope for smoother service.

    We recently bought Living Social coupon for chef 4 course tasting. A great value and everyday menu at$50 also a great value. Ambiance sexy and modern, service slow to start but ended well. Four courses included 3-4 entrees each. An amazing blend of bold flavors and textures. For a foodie at heart and out of the box adventure! Will come back for sure and order off the menu. That way I can concentrate on 3-4 flavors and enjoy every second of complex ingredients. I would definately tell a friend or10! Bold, inventive, sleak, sexy and culinary fun!
