About

Turmeric Indian Dining, in East Vienna, serves authentic Indian cuisine made with the finest ingredients and most vibrant seasonings in its elegant, welcoming restaurant. The spice rubbed and sautéed tawa shrimp and the pakora platter laden with assorted vegetable fritters with cilantro and tamarind sauces make ideal appetizer selections. Some of Turmeric Indian Dining's specialty entrée dishes include the spicy chicken vindaloo curry with potatoes and seasonings, the beef sheikh nawabi slow roasted on skewers in the tandoor and the Kerala fish moilee salmon cooked in coconut milk and black pepper. Turmeric Indian Dining also has plenty of flavorful vegetarian dishes like the baked eggplant with onions, tomatoes and spices and the yellow lentils with ginger, garlic and mustard seeds.

For an exotic dessert, enjoy Turmeric Indian Dining's mithai taster with gulab jamun honey dumplings, mango kulfi ice cream and rasmalai sweet cheese patty.

Much better than average Indian food. Not your standard Indian fare because they have dishes from all over India.

Very good Indian food with a friendly wait staff. Ordered a couple of their non-veg Thali dinner meals and it had a lot of good variety. It was quite for a Saturday evening and I'm wondering if it is because of the location. Def. will come again.

We had not been here before, but very much enjoyed it. The food was very well prepared, friendly service, and conveniently located. Will definitely go back.

We have eaten here before (same dishes) and enjoyed it. The food has been good and good value. However our meal tonight was disappointing.
The pakora appetizer was soggy and consisted only of 3 small onion rings, and a few battered potato and zucchini slices.
The shrimp makhani was a nice portion and the sauce was tasty as usual however the shrimp were smallish and so over cooked that they tasted like hockey pucks. When told, the waiter shrugged, muttered " sorry about that" and offered to pack it to go.
We are not likely to give it another try despite having enjoyed it previously due to the "could care less" attitude.

We visited for the first time and enjoyed it. The food was very good. We had an early reservation so they were not busy - hence the low noise.

This is right by my office and I love to go there for lunch. They have a great buffet and the staff is very nice.

Excellent selection of dishes and good prices (not a cheap eats but won't break you either). Service was friendly but very slow.

The wait staff was very attentive but not intrusive. I ordered the lamb rogan josh which I thought needed a little more seasoning. However, with condiments, it was fine. My table
companions all enjoyed their meals - lamb vindaloo, and chicken with spinach (which I tasted and thought was delicious). The restaurant was moderately busy on Wednesday night and it
was easy to converse. This is a neighborhood restaurant for me and I would certainly go again.
