Very tasty, easy as a take away, food like a sit down restaurant. The food is authentically spiced while not beeing crazy hot .

Don't eat Indian food often, or.know much about it. I do know about tasty food, served quickly, in a comfortable atmosphere. Tarka has this - with friendly service to boot. Look forward to going again.

I ordered in thru "Eat Out In" in Austin. First I have to say that I spent 3 years off and on in India, so I know my Indian cuisine. Was so completely surprised at the quality and taste. Really amazing. I was so happy to find this restaurant and will be going back! The portions were good, my friend... More

Good food. Plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options. Good portions. Fun local sodas from the fountain. Simple and fast. Worth it.

Best way for me describe this place is Pei Wei of Indian food. They had a good selection of dishes. Actually had the best Malai Kofta I've ever had. Channa masala could of had a bit more spice. Would definitely be back when in Austin.

The vegetable korma is so good! Just the right amount of spice with a creamy, comforting sauce. I have been here twice and really enjoy it. The naan is also fantastic-especially the garlic but it is a strong, fresh garlic flavor so beware!

A great place for quick but tasty Indian food. My only complaint was that I was too full after the entree to try any dessert!

I've had better indian food, but not by much. And the convenience of online ordering and takeout is fantastic. Korma and Tikka Marsala are very good. their house salad is surprisingly good. Naan is OK, but not great.

Thank Bill M
