We ate there for our Valetines day dinner and it was wonderful! They had a special menu for the occasion. The food had a heart theme which was great to see.

Taaza is one of our go-to’s in the Roanoke area. They have an amazing happy hour for drinks and appetizers (4-7), and their menu never disappoints. My favorite dish is the mango chicken, while my husband goes for the homestyle chicken most days. Garlic naan with the mint chutney is a MUST. Note that you must request the mint chutney because they don’t always bring it. This is the best! I also enjoy the salt and pepper mushrooms for an appetizer, or even a meal if you aren’t that hungry. If you are a drink connoisseur, I would encourage you to check out their specialty drinks. The majority of them are all made from scratch in-house and delicious! All around, a great place to dine and highly recommended!

I only gave it 5 stars because they won't let me do more. The food, the staff, everything in this place is AMAZING!!!!!!!! The staff will not allow your water glass get past half full, the food is cooked exactly the way you want it, what more can one ask.

Awesome Indian food! Friendly staff. Large wine serving with affordable wine choices. There were families there too. Tuesday is a special sampler platter night. I will ask for seating in a quieter room next time since there are options. It wasn't bad though.

My husband and I chose Roanoke as the city to retire to at least partly based on the presence of Taaza, one of our favorite restaurants in the world. The food on this occasion included a yummy Indian chicken flatbread, the wonderful Kachumber salad, hot miilky Masala chai and my favorite bread, spinach kulcha. The food is luscious, redolent and beautifully presented. The service is attentive and friendly. We LOVE Taaza's new location, where they seem to be thriving!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Roanoke. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food is the best Indian food in town. Their hummus and garlic naan is our favorite starter. Their main dishes of Butter Chicken, Salmon Masala, and Saag Paneer are always excellent. I also like their creative cocktail choices. The martini made with blueberry chutney is my favorite.

They lost my reservation and did not have a table for us in the dining room, so we were put in a freezing cold back room, where, aside from the manager coming by a couple times, we did not have a single server come by our table. Tables that were seated 10-15 minutes after we were had their orders taken and food brought before us because they actually had waiters, whereas we had to hope the manager would come by again.

My husband and I love Indian food and will sample it wherever we go. We lived the majority of our lives in SoCal where there are many such restaurants and our daughter lives in NYC, a noted foodie capital. In our opinion, Taaza is among the best Indian restaurants we've found. We love their new location in Grandin Village, the vibe of the restaurant is much more sophisticated and appealing. Happy hour offerings are exceptional, drink prices and the variety of appetizers make for a fun varied meal with friends. We had Thanksgiving at Taaza which was a delight. We much preferred the flavorful offerings to a typical turkey/stuffing meal.
