After eating a few times at the Taste of India in the past two weeks, this has been an overdue posting for what has turned out to be an excellent eastern food restaurant and takeaway. Located in a nondescript venue above a pharmacy and supermarket on Lenasia’s Flamingo street, Taste Of India is a hidden gem of a quality food diner. The Dall Makhni is prepared the traditional Indian style and well seasoned with familiar indian spices.
The Tandoori Chicken Tikka (Quarter), priced at R28.00 is tasty value for money. With many chicken tikka outlets around, the freshly prepared, spicy chicken breast is on par with the best if not better. Together with the traditional naan, salad and tikka sauce, the 1/4 chicken tikka is indeed a dish to try from Taste of India.
To my surprise, tucked away to the side of the 1st floor entrance is an entertainment hall that is perfectly suited for a banquet or reception. My visit today coincided with two events taking place later tonight in both, the main dining area and entertainment hall. The cost for the venue and 3 course meal, including drinks is simply R80 per head. This presents a simple option for a last minute event with great food to match.
I look forward to my next meal from Taste of India!
