Indian
India, the land of the enchanted, with its varied cultural practices, is tied together by the invisible commonality of its exotic cuisine. It is celebrated for the variety of its dishes based on the artful combination of spices developed over many centuries. Let us thus embark on a culinary journey through the rich traditions and delicate flavors that symbolize the sub-continent. We at THE TASTE OF INDIA offer a richly-varied menu of high quality ingredients, wholesome curries and house toasted spices and spice mixes. All of our food is freshly-prepared on the premises with a lot of attention to detail. It is our hope that you leave us satisfied and with a desire that keeps you coming back.

Aesthetically, I was a little nervous to enter. The restaurant is a bit shabby on the exterior, and entering didn’t make me feel much better.
However, we were greeted warmly and immediately shown to our table (a paper reserved sign had been placed there) by a pleasant gentleman. A lovely woman came shortly after to offer suggestions, answer questions, and take our order. She was great!
The food arrived and it was super-the entire family was happy! My husband thought he’d show off and ask for his food “spicy,” and regretted that decision as he struggled through his meal. The kind woman offered to remake it or to add cream, which he declined.
I would definitely go back-I just need to remember to look beyond the physical building.

A Taste of India is a real jewel in the Pensacola dining scene. The flavors of India are carefully crafted to deliver flavor that is some of the best I’ve ever had. The lamb chops out of the tandoor were succulent. The curries were flavorful but not overdone. The service was welcoming and helpful. I can’t wait to go back. I think I have a new favorite restaurant in Pensacola.

This is the first time I ate here. I am new to the area and friends recommended this place. The food was wonderful. The Gobi Manchurian (crispy cauliflower appetizer) was DELICIOUS. I ordered the Nellore Curry for dinner. It was extra, extra spicy...loved it. It will be a regular on my dining list. On top of the delicious food, the service and staff were wonderful and gracious.

Family dinner after travel day on a wedding weekend. Met all our needs, including GF member who can only eat out at Indian restaurants. Friendly server/owner (?) who made recommendations and nice wait staff who served drinks/food. Would prefer table cloth and nicer dishes, but food was good.

I had out of town guest and i wanted to take them somewhere "different" for dinner. Well..we had a MARVELOUS dining experience. As soon as we walked in and i gave my name for the reservation, we were immediately escorted to our table by the host of the resturant. After we perused the menu's for a few minutes, he came over and talked to us and asked us about our dining experience at Indian resturants. We all said we were "novices". He then preceded to tell is a little history about some of the items on the menu. Anyway..bottom line..LISTEN TO HIS RECOMMENDATIONS!!
The food was delicious, service was very attentive..and the resturant host made the evening "an experience "! Don't miss this place!

This place is great. My wife and I were in the mood for dinner other than the normal beach cuisine. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman and seated. The menu and spices were explained as my wife isn't into spicy hot. The appetizers came and were wonderful. Dinner was excellent as well. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable and professional. We highly recommend giving The Taste of India a try if you are looking for an exciting mix of great Indian flavors.

On a trip from New Orleans to Tallahassee, we took a short detour to eat at Pensacola's Taste of India. It was well worth it, due to the varied, prepared daily spicing and high quality ingredients. Owner took the time to explain the menu, which included many old standards, as well as some new to us dishes. This is now our choice as the best Indian food south of Washington, D.C. The portions are large and the delivery rather quick. So order judiciously or take food home for a great reheated lunch.
