Went to eat here about 2 weeks ago and it was awesome!! This is a pretty new Indian restaurant and sure is a Fresh Taste!! From the moment we walked through the doors…the service was flawless and the food was seasoned nicely. Greeted at the door, seated right away by the fireplace on a cold winter night, white tablecloths, and the amazing smell of the cuisine. They had $5 martinis that we skipped on, started with Calamari Bhaji and was cooked perfect, our server also brought out homemade flatbread with their homemade chutney that was really tasty! She had the Tava Mix Grill that had a little of everything, Tandoori Chicken and shrimp, boti kebab, and reshmi kebab…very good and highly recommended as it is one of the house specialties. I enjoyed a plate of the Fish TIkka Masala, fresh mahi-mahi fillet marinated in yogurt and spices roasted in tandoor and sautéed with indian seafood masala, that packed some heat, also another Tava specialty. Our server thought we ate there before, but it was our first, she said awesome choices. And finally DESSERT, their homemade MANGO icecream is the best, i mean BEST MANGO ICE CREAM I EVER HAD, it beats out the Filipino brand Magnolia by far! YOU MUST HAVE IT…The only thing I am not used to is that the side dishes like flatbread or rice is a la carte…but I can get used to it…i feel that by ordering a la carte, you appreciate to read exactly what you want to get for your side dish, we ordered the garlic flatbread (garlic naan) yummy!!
TAVA is definitely on the right track and has a great menu selection and friendly wait staff! It is a welcoming and warm environment, even the manager came by our table and the CHEF came out to another table to answer some customers questions. Will be a return customer for sure!
4.5 out of 5 STARS this is a must dine at restaurant for an awesome taste of Indian Cuisine!!
