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.

    Tashan is always very good. The tasting menu is great and they are very accommodating to food sensitivities. We went this time on a Sunday night, a little disappointing since it was very empty - not a lot of energy.

    I have heard rave reviews about this restaurant and was excited to have made a reservation when a family member would be in town. We arrived and the space was beautifully decorated and welcoming. Once we were seated things began to take a turn for the worse. Our drink orders were messed up, our server never told us the Naan bread that we ordered (and was on our bill) was not available that evening, the food runner was rude, and the food was "OK". Not sure we will be back.

    Food was great and priced well. The alcohol whether wine or drinks, ridiculous. A bottle of white wine you can buy for under $7 was $58/bottle & $10/glass. House vodka martini, $15.....so our big group doubled the bill w/ a handful of drinks. Best Indian food we've had in Philly though.

Our drinks got a teeny tiny but delayed so the our awesome waiter Jack S got us some champagne to make up for the delay- now how many restaurants treat your customers like that? The food was delicious and out waiter esp made out dinner visit an amazing experience. Will certainly recommend to a friend.

    The food was excellent! Our waiter was charming and very accommodating to our diets. However the men that bussed our tables were very rushed and even took our plates away before we were done with the dish, not once, but twice. He asked if we were finished as we were clearly still eating from the plate. We couldn't help but just laugh at the situation. However, we understand that it was a busy night. Overall, we were very satisfied with our meal and service.

    My experience at Tashan was during Restaurant Week. The service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious. However, I can only say that the overall experience was good, rather than excellent. Although I had a reservation and the restaurant was only half filled when my party arrived, we were seated right next to the door, despite other tables being open. This was not a huge issue, however it was frustrating because we observed other parties who were walk-ins seated at better locations. Additionally, the restroom was beautiful, but smelled terrible which was a bit of an appetite killer. Overall, it is a lovely place with good food, but I have had better dining experiences with larger portions of equal quality for a better price.

    Last year we were here for Restaurant Week and everything was wonderful. Every mouthful made us moan to the point that the table next to us said "We'll have what they are eating." This year not so much. The Kobe beef kabobs this year was a rolled up piece of beef that didn't taste like meat let alone beef. Very disappointing. The mushroom appetizer although good had spices that did not compliment each other. The Butter chicken dish was very good. Pork entrée was flat. Crème Brule excellent and so was the orange rice pudding. We go into Phillie every year for restaurant week. Unfortunately, Tashan will not be on our Bucket list for next year. Must say the service was wonderful and the waiters are very knowledgeable on every level.

    The staff here went above and beyond to make our experience amazing. They were accommodating and gracious about my friend being vegan and even made her an off menu dish. The drinks were phenomenal (try the gin basil lime cocktail), the food was filling and delicious (the restaurant week menu was top notch), but the staff were what made our night really amazing.

    We had to eat early (5PM) on a Tuesday. So it was quiet and service was very attentive. Atmosphere is really nice and not cliche. Two of the courses were not great. First one: by appearance (very questionable) and taste. It was supposed to be a kobe beef kabob done with chile spices. It was a red, 1 inch wide sausage (about 5 inches long). You can guess what it looked like. I expected to have pieces of kobe beef on a skewer. Definitely would not choose this item again. Dessert: rice dish with chocolate mousse. Very bland.

    My husband and I dined at Tashan on Sunday and participated in their restaurant week menu. We're not exactly foodies nor consistent Indian food diners, but we were taken great care of. Our server, Jason S., was very friendly and upbeat since the moment he approached our table. He described each dish, in great detail, for each course and made some wonderful recommendations (bless his heart for being so patient & kind). He recommended that my husband and I choose different dishes from each course to explore more of the menu, and his recommendations were spot on. Every dish was packed with flavor and spice. We've dined at many restaurants in N.Y., D.C., and Philadelphia, and we both agreed we've never had such great service like this before.

    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.

    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!

    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.
