If India had a taste, it would taste like this Indian restaurant in Nottingham’s Lenton, within easy access of the Queen’s Medical Centre and the sprawling University of Nottingham campus along Abbey Street. Here, legitimate cooking meets Taste Of India’s other maxim, that love is precisely hand – handmade that is, with meticulously crafted South Asian dishes this restaurant’s forte. Taste Of India offers some of the best-tasting high-quality Indian cuisine in Nottinghamshire.
Taste Of India is indeed a tasteful place, with premises down Abbey Street in Lenton welcoming diners in under the big blue neon sign and into the well-lit and warm restaurant accented throughout with Cadbury-purple highlights. The staff here are friendly and charming, offering newcomers to Indian cuisine useful pointers such as ‘that’s a hot curry!’ and Nottingham’s connoisseurs the inside scoop on the often mysterious masala mixes that make their way into the dishes on offer.
As for those dishes, Taste Of India affectionately refers to them as ‘Our Special Food’. Highlights from the long menu include the makhani, the chicken jalfrezi, pulao rice and shashlik, as well as a curious fusion item known to Lenton locals as the Spanish bhaji. To crack this riddle you’ll have to reserve a table and head down to Taste Of India yourself, and why not dine with a friend for once and order the complete menu for two persons, or come on a Sunday for thali night. Even better, turn the page to the chef’s specialties and score a contemporary classic curry, ranging from medium to hot or fairly hot. Taste Of India is where Nottingham tastes India.
This place has amazing Indian food. Very well prepared meals. If I had to complain I would say meal sizes could be bigger. Otherwise perfect.
Quite place with nice atmosphere and service. The quality of the food is great and with a really good price.
As usual the food here is first rate. It is cooked individually so it does take a little time. It is well worth the wait.
