It’s been many years since I’ve gone for Indian food (not sure why that is), so it was really great to dine at India’s Taste with two good friends of mine this past week.
India’s Taste is located at 680 Denison Street in Markham (near Woodbine). It’s located on Denison Street where there are a lot of factories and commercial buildings which makes it a little hard to find if you don’t drive by this area often. I’ve passed by India’s Taste hundreds of times as I used to drive by here often in the past but never ventured in for a meal until now.
India’s Taste is an all day buffet serving vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, pastries, and sweets. They’re open seven days a week. They also service a la carte items too.
We arrived here on a Wednesday evening and enjoyed the various of Indian options from the buffet line. At first, it didn’t look like a lot of selections but there were actually more than enough and I found I couldn’t even fit one of each item into my stomach.
They bring you fresh naan bread to your table but sometimes you have to wave the server down for some extra naan or water at your table. It’s a very casual restaurant and fit for families and gatherings.
I really liked the food I had here. I can’t name everything that was on my plate as I didn’t want to stand in front of each food station to take photos of every sign like a food journalist — I’m a foodie but it’s not my job to capture everything sometimes lol. I have to say that I really enjoyed the vegetarian options like the eggplant, yogurt, and also the Tandoori chicken. There were other things I enjoyed too but I can’t recall the name of. XD
Gajar Ka Halwa — also called carrot pudding, minced carrots cooked in milk served warm dessert topped and garnished with almonds, cashewnuts and Kishmish. I liked this but it was a bit sweet so I was glad I only got a small portion to try.
Did I mention that I loved the naan here? It was fresh, soft, and hot. It went so well with the curries. It’s best served hot so eat it once it gets to your table! 🙂
This dessert called Ras Malai (sugary, cream to yellow-colored balls or flattened balls of paneer soaked in malai, clotted cream) was spongy and reminded me of tofu but it sat in a sweet broth. This was actually really good!
The selections were all very fresh and flavourful and authentic. I would come here again for some all-you-can-eat Indian food. 🙂 The prices are very reasonable too!
