Taste of India
Staten Island's longest-operating Indian Restaurant, Taste of India has kept the borough full on authentic southeast Asian food since 1990. The team here prides itself on hospitality that is as warm as the cuisine—co-owner Baldev Malhotra typically greets visitors as they walk in for lunch or dinner, often recommending dishes so diners don't have to seek advice from a Magic 8 ball. Once seated, guests browse a extensive menu that includes such Indian specialties as palak paneer, homemade cottage cheese cubes cooked with spinach puree. There are plenty of meat-based options, too, including a tandoori mix with an assortment of chicken and kebabs. That blend of flavorful fare and welcoming service has earned Taste of India a loyal following over the years, and in 2014, it was named "Best Indian Restaurant" by readers of Staten Island Advance.
