My husband and I were new to Tallahassee and it was the first birthday of our first baby - indeed a special event

for us. We were looking for catering services providing Indian cuisine. Tallahassee has very few Indian restaurants

and hence, it was easy to personally check and select the restaurant.
We placed our catering order with Essence of India Manager. When we received the service, we were more than

delighted. Most importantly - the quantity was not comprised at all when we first saw the trays. After that, when

the guests and our family started to taste the food - it was simply awesome. The restaurant not only performed

exceptionally well on delivering the quanitity, but also quality.
Indeed very good authentic North Indian food served in Tallahassee! A full rating from all of us. Highly

Recommended. All dishes were very good - Samosa, Matar Paneer, Malai Kofta, Butter Chicken, Jeera Rice, Butter

Naan, Ras Malai. Thank you Essence of India!!!!

I had take out. The food was really good but the portions were VERY small for the price. I would really have to be in the mood for Indian food to go back.

The restaurant has not been quite upto my expectations. Maybe because being an Indian, I can differentiate between good and phony. These people give something called 'lentil soup' that is just water extracted out of cooked dal, that I somehow find not in a very good taste. In India we give that to ppl who are sick. The only dish I like in the restaurant is Butter Chicken. Rest are all bland. The restaurant is okay for 'once in a time' thingy. Pity we dont have a good Indian place to eat here at Tallahassee

Haven't been there since it changed owners. Does anyone know what the name of the curried chicken dish was that they had? There was one that was just called "Curry Chicken" but then they had another one, like Bombay Curry Chicken or Delhi Curry Chicken which was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I'd love to find out how to make it.

Just perfectly prepared Indian dishes. Great variety. Service is always great even when it gets crowded at lunch. If something is not to your liking, they will go out of their way to make it right.

I am originally from Cincinnati where I was surrounded by many indian restaurants. This restaurant is very very good. The best time to go is during their lunch hour when they have their lunch specials. You get a TON of food for a very decent price. (Their dinner menu is much more pricey). Their nann bread is great, rice is great, and I would recommend the butter chicken lunch special. If you are new to indian food, this is a good place to start. They definitely met my expectations!

Pros: lunch special
Cons: dinner is pricey and interior is not in the best of shape

I like Curry and Wine a lot. They have delicious curries and other Indian dishes. It may look like another strip mall dive from the outside, but it's got artsy class on the inside. I've never been when there has been live entertainment, but I hear they have pianists/singers occasionally. The only thing I don't like about them is the price. It's around $15-20 for dinner, which is a little bit out of my student budget. Great for a date.
