I was a fan of Tava's original menu that emphasized Indian food and flavors much more than this location on Palo Alto. Their new organic/Californian menu approach is well, less approachable. Plus if I wanted to have glazed sweet potato and edamame, there are many...More

I have not been to the actual location but tried their food in a festival and I am not a fan. It was greasy, rice were dry and flavorless and chicken was rubbery. Not a good experience.

I like being able to have my food made to order! Very delicious and you get plenty. We had take out, but you can eat in as well. Will be going back again.

I had the salmon which was a good cut & well prepared. Hubby enjoyed his lamb. The carrots were a bit blah but overall it's a good, quick, clean environment for Indian food.More

I liked the concept they have pulled together, modernized Indian food, but need a lot of fine tuning before they can really crack it. While the location of the restaurant in Palo Alto is in a corner of a very busy mall, and it may...More
