This is a very nice South Indian restaurant with a pleasant staff and excellent food. I had the non-vegetarian thali, which was enough for two!! A great variety of foods: fish, beef, chicken, dal, halwa, raita, rice, chapati, homemade pickle, all at a very reasonable...More

Very casual, very good, very authentic. The staff is friendly, its family owned, and has a killer chicken tikka.

Taste of India/Suvai is our go-to for Indian food near Ann Arbor. I eat mostly plants; the baingan bartha (eggplant) and Andhra Masala Dosa are my favorites. My daughter likes the chicken tikka masala.

Great food and equally great service. Manager Prabhu is very friendly and attentive. Butter chicken and palak paneer is a must try. Desert Rasmalai is really delicious too. Best thing is close proximity to the central UfM campus.

The food is very representative of good southern Indian food. Just the right amount of spice and heat. The goat was tender and perfectly cooked. The dosas were just wonderful. Very nice gullab jamun. Very reminiscent of the wonderful food one can find in Brixton...More
