Tasty Indian Bistro prides itself on the exquisite menu and ambience. At the same time, it highly delivers the succulent taste of traditional indian spices in every bite.
Went here with another couple for dinner on a weekend night. Upon entering the restaurant, I was quite impressed with the decor. It is very moderns and reminds me of Cactus Club. The service was prompt and decent. Nothing above and beyond. We ordered 3 vegetarian dishes (I do not recall all their names but one was mala kofta) and one non-vegetarian (butter chicken). The sauces in all the dishes were good, but after awhile they all tasted the same. We also ordered the garlic naan and the regular naan. I throughly enjoyed the garlic naan. We also also ordered deep fried tandori dish and somosa as appetizers. The deep fried tandori fish was good but the samosas was a expensive for around $10 you gotten two samosa. They were the vegetarian type with mostly potatoes. The bill was almost $100 with tip, Value wise, I had better. The ambiance is great. Next time I plan to order more meat dishes to see if the food tastes better as the vegetarians dishes were satisfactory.
Ok, so technically Tasty Indian Bistro is in Delta. The actual location is a bit run-down, but the restaurant itself is quite nice! They've got a hip, clean look to their interior, apart from a couple extremely tacky-looking statues guarding the door. And the food is great! My one complaint there is that the portions are just MILDLY lacking... for $12 butter chicken I think the bowl could be a bit larger. The tandoori is great too... but again, small portions. The samosas are kind of average, but with some mango chutney they're delicious and the mango lassi was terrific, nice and creamy. Again, a bit on the small size.
The servers here are pretty good. The night I went the place was dead, so we probably got a bit more service than I'd like since our guy clearly had no one else to tend on, but it's better to have them checking in a couple times too often than not at all. All in all, dinner for two came to about $45. I feel I could get more for that amount elsewhere, but the quality probably wouldn't be as good. I'll be coming back!
This restuarant has good interior and it was clean. It's fairly large restuarant and was getting busy for Saturday evening. Came in for early dinner like at 5:30pm. The place not full and people were still coming in. The server could not really understand what we were asking but he did not mess up our order. Food was different but not sure if i would pay those prices as the portions were a bit small. Dinner for two was around $60. We did not have dessert as we did not have room for dessert. They rush you in and out of the restuarant. I would try this place again as i like one of the chicken dishes that we had.
Very tasty food... but small portions & overpriced for all items.
Must have to say the place was full, few times I have been.
Good for people with deep pockets.
Most dishes have unique flavors, service was also good. Worth trying it out.
I liked their "Chilli Mushrooms", it is not that spice, but does taste really good.
Visited the place after hearing a lot from friends and advert.
It was a good experience. Service was good and there was a line
up at the entrance. Different than other typical Indian restaurant.
The restaurant was busy. Our server was very pleasant.
Just hope that the owners keep delivering good service and food.
In rush time parking can be a problem and not the best location.
Now, I'll preface this by saying I used to live in London, UK so I know what a good Indian is and this was the best Indian in Vancouver area by far. I'd been there many times and always thought it was great and written good reviews elsewhere about it.
Recently however am sad to say our last visit fell way short of expectations. Yes, it was a Saturday night and the place was packed (as usual). Service, Decor was good but the food was way below par. Chaat Papri was very average, Palak Paneer was very very average and the Garlic Naans just tasted like they were out of a packet. Now I'm sure most of you can tell the difference between a Naan that is could in a Tandoor and one that is out of a packet and I certainly can. I question the waitress and she informed me that it is from the Tandoor. Not wanting to cause a scene etc I let it lie. I've had the Naans here many many times and this was way different and tasted like the PC Garlic Naans at Superstore(I've had those many times too!)I can only think that given that it was so busy they were using the tandoor for the meats and decided to speed things up by giving people packet Naans. It would be my only explanation but that is just not acceptable IMO for an above average price Indian restaurant. The Paneer Tikka was as normal very good.
I like the restaurant having given it good reviews before but I don't like gettting treated like a chump which is how I felt after this visit. I'd like to hope this was a one off but it wouldn't be the first restaurant once it got busy/popular/recommended to start cutting corners - hope this is not the case.
