Now Open – Taste Homestyle Indian Kitchen
Naidu family, originally from Fiji, is pleased to announce an opening of their casual home-style dining Indian restaurant – Taste Homestyle Indian Kitchen.
The unassuming restaurant with a seating capacity of over 50 is located on Maryland Pkwy, across the street from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) main entrance in a modest retail building.
Taste Homestyle stands out in a crowded field of over 20 local Indian eateries as the restaurant offers home-style food offerings concocted by owner Sulochana Naidu. The family moved to Las Vegas in 2004 is active in a local Indian community. The kitchen is managed by Chef Abhineet Naidu, son of Sulochana and Radha Krishnan Naidu. “Everything is made fresh daily from scratch in the restaurant kitchen,” said Radha. “We don’t have any pre-made or frozen Indian food entrees including samosas and crunchy mixtures, and desserts are made right here,” he continued. “It’s basically a home away from home food concept.”
The limited menu echoes the culinary delights of India with some dishes having a Fiji influence, especially fresh spinach mildly combined with mashed eggplant. Taste doesn’t have a tandoor (clay oven) as the Indian chappatis/rotis are freshly handmade on daily basis to accompany different vegetarian and non-vegetarian offerings. Instead of having complex menu options for Indian food aficionados, the Taste is focusing on fresh flavorful ingredients for the most popular Indian dishes.
Taste doesn’t offer a buffet, however, they do offer a decent selection of lunch combo meals at reasonable prices. For takeout and home parties Taste offers Tiffin Service by the pound for all the freshly prepared menu items including Dal ($4.99/lb.); Jackfruit Curry ($7.99/lb.); Spinach Eggplant ($7.49/lb.); Shahi Paneer & Chicken ($8.99/lb.); and more. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Taste offers half off on all freshly prepared appetizers.
