Taste of India, Nerja

Very good Indian restaurant with full takeaway service.

  1. Easily the best curry house in Nerja. Nothing to fault really. When it says a dish is ‘hot’, by the way, it means it, so do not assume that your jalfrezi is really going to tend towards medium as it sometimes does back home in Birmingham, UK. If the weather is hot, try to get a seat in the open air terrace at the back as the interior can feel a little warm. A couple of tables have been added in the street but be warned that (summer 2010) in the street itself there are some pretty strong smells from the new drainage system in Calle Carabeo before they complete work on the project. There is no problem inside the retaurant though.

    Have visited every time we are in Nerja. Food is fantastic and fresh. Raj is an excellent host. All our friends have raved about this place. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Go pay a visit, you will not be dissapointed.

    Brilliant. Always excellent food. Compares well with curry capital Bradford but ambience and service so much better. Raj is a great host and always a warm welcome.

    Went to Taste Of India on the recommendations on this web site. I was not disappointed and can heartily recommend this place, Our host Raj was very friendly and chatty, a very nice man! The food was superb, probably the best chicken madras I have ever had, we will definitely return but not on a Tuesday as Raj tells me they are closed on Tuesdays at the moment.

  5. Simply excellent food and service – no jars of sauces here, everything cooked from fresh and to order.

    Simply, the very best in Indian food….Our favourite Indian restaurant – ever!!! Have been visiting Raj for over 10 years – and it’s the first place we go when we arrive and the last before we leave. Raj is a top class host and a top class bloke.

    It’s a must for any curry fiend. Visit and I guarantee – you won’t be disappointed. Go and enjoy!

    Absolutely, the best Indian restaurant in the whole wide world. Raj caters for my little brother Louis who has allergies and provides himwith a wonderful curry. I have been going since I was 3 and I have loved every minute. My father and grandfather love the beer and my mum likes the Bailey’s at the end! See you next year..

  8. Allan & Lynne Symington says:

    Simply, the very best Indian restaurant – ever!! We have been visiting Raj for over 8 years and it’s still the first place we go when we arrive and the last before we leave. First class food served by a first call bloke. Raj is a fab host and always meets us with a smile. Pay a visit and you won’t be disappointed – but beware – we guarantee you’ll want to keep going back!!

  9. Yis ou have treat waiting if you have never tried The Taste of India. We visit Nerja at least once a year and ,after twenty six years, can say that of all the great restaraunts, Taste of India is tops. The entire menu leaves you a great choice, each one better than the other. Having said this, the friendly and sincere attention by Raj would brin g us back, even if it was pasta, which is everywhere in Neerja, thanks Roj for making our visiot memorable.

  10. im sorry to comment this rajy,but we are not coming anymore to your restaurant..the food is not what it used to be ..we had a lamb kashmir and a masala and they were awful,and the rice was disgusting..anyway we found another indian in the same area which is much more better and cheaper than taste of india!

  11. Douglas says:

    It took a while before the food was on the table and normally that might mean that you have a wonderful meal. The food was tasteless and the only thing you could taste was the spicyness. The meat was tough and tasteless, the naan bread was oily..For the last three years we dine there ,but we will not go anymore.Raj is a good man but the the food was disgusting and the service unfriendly…and this was new year´s eve…disappointed!

    • GlamGoth says:

      Surely this can’t be true? OMG Taste of India is fab and Raj is so dedicated and wants everyone to have the best experience. If you had a problem did you not raise it at the time?

  12. Please book me a table for New Years eve 2012. Just to say thank you for a wonderful New Years eve 2011. We had a wonderful time. The food was perfect as always, all the staff were friendly and kind and the atmosphere was superb. It could not have been better. I met some friends who also dined and they just keep saying wonderful yhings about the evening. Well done. Peter

    Once again another fabulous dining experience. Great friendly service, tasty authentic food and good sized portions. No need to say any more except see you next time !!!!

  14. Sorry for late comment but …..We booked late for New Years Eve & Raj managed to sort a table for 6 of us . The food was amazing , even our kids ( 27 & 25 ) commented on how great the food was . The service was great , I can’t think of one complaint to be honest …..We are regular clients as we live in Nerja … I don’t miss home at all with such a great curry house so local ……Keep up the good work & great food Raj .We ate there again tonight & again the food was first class …I always order the prawns & they are just fab , in my opinion …..Well done for New Years Eve you all did a great job Taste of India .

  15. GlamGoth says:

    Taste of India is always fabulous! The butter chicken is heaven and my absolute favourite. I tried the chicken tikka masala and lamb dopiaza this time and they were equally good. My only ‘complaint’ is too much food. I can hardly manage a starter and bread or rice as well, much as I want to. The place and service is always immaculate and what can I say about Raj. The best host in the world! Keep doing what you do, my trips to Nerja would not be the same without you. *10/10 *

    Taste of India is the BEST Indian Restaurant you could wish for!! Not only is the Avenue it is situated on lovely the restaurant is spotless, the service is top notch and Raj is one of the Best Host’s ever – if there is a nicer guy in Nerja, we don’t know him. The food is faultless, Raj is very accommodating and will tailor your food to suit your individual requirements Mild, Medium, Hot!! It is very reasonably priced and you can sit inside in the Air Conditioning, in the terrace at the back or on the tables outside – do yourself a favour and don’t miss this restaurant off your list when your next in Nerja!!

    • Food excellent buy the portions are way too small…we pay half price for double portions back home! you should consider a cheaper price or a larger portion…

  18. The food was okay but the portions too small.. the service was fine…

    but so expensive, by far the most expensive indian meal we had in Nerja. Not good value for money at all.
