Eating @ India's Taste

10:44 AM

As team leader, I organized the last dutch lunch with my team for departing co-op students. One place that I have always been curious about was India's Taste. It has been many years since I visited this place and probably due for a revisiting. With one of the co-op students having a meeting crunch at 1pm today, we decided to leave for lunch at 11am (so early).

The restaurant was located at the corner of the building. Once inside, the entrance featured a long cold display selection of sweets for sale. There were elevated platforms for seating (which I thought was weird). In the north corner of the restaurant was the serving stations of different Indian foods. The tables were clean and tidy. I was amused to find out that the drink menus were inserted under the glass table top (so you really can't grab them).

For this meal, the servers constantly asked us offered us fresh baked naan and refills. I thought this was completely different from what The Host did (self service at the buffet area). They also constantly refilled our drinks (engineers love drinking water).

Food Comments:
When comparing the food selections available at this lunch buffet to The Host, India's Taste definitely has a lot more variety of foods. It was pretty hard to "document" everything they had available. 

Available foods available at Lunch Buffet (from memory):

  • Butter Chicken Curry
  • Tandoori Chicken
  • Papadum (near kitchen)
  • Veg Tawa (near kitchen)
  • Chicken Tawa (near kitchen)
  • Samosa
  • Plain long grain rice 
  • Caesar Salad
  • Gajar Halwa (carrot pudding)
  • Egg Curry
  • Goat Curry
  • Chicken Malasa Tikka 
  • Veg Skewers
  • Pani Puri
  • Fish Pakora
  • Gulab Jamun (you may have seen it as Timmy bit soaked in SWEET syrup)
  • Ice cream (4 flavours including chocolate chips and chocolate mint) & mini sweet cakes
Overall, the foods were a little spicy for me. Everything was pretty tasty and good. The puri quality was horrible - very hard and old tasting. I enjoyed the fresh naan being served directly at our tables. 

Would I come back? Yes - definitely a lot better than "The Host" in comparison for food and selection
