Taste of India is a culinary experience in Escazu. The attention to detail and level of service from it's staff and ever present owners is immaculate. You can feel the love and caring of the kitchen staff in each and every dish, from the samosas...to the butter chicken. We now let the owner recommend us different dishes so we can continue to explore the tastes of the cuisine.More

Good Indian restaurant.Since this being in a country like Costa Rica we shouldn’t compare taste and quality with Indian restaurant in India or country like USA or U.K. Just to enjoy food in remote place. Quality and quantity both are good.paneer was soft, good vegetarian...options.However price wise very costly food so if you don’t miss Indian food then think about it.More

This is as good Indian food as I have tasted anywhere outside India. Indian food inside India is not to be compared with anything we get in the West. Bearing that in mind this is good food prepared to suit the Western palate. Beware, the...portions are huge, as often is the case in Costa Rica. It isn't cheap, but we could have paid half of what we did and would have still been well fed. The waiting staff are attentive and the food is very well presented. Reserve for a special night out (we were celebrating the end of my wife's cancer treatment).More

I would say mid range, Costa Rica price that is. CR is a bit on the expensive side.
