Located along Port Road in Hindmarsh, Taste of Bollywood is a great place to enjoy a wide range of North Indian cuisine. The restaurant is also able to customise their dishes to suit your taste, depending on whether you prefer something mild or desire a spicy kick.
A dish well known for being spicy, the Beef Vindaloo at Taste of Bollywood had quite a spicy hit but it is not so hot as to make the dish difficult to it. A dash of vinegar added some tanginess with the chunks of beef cooked to the doneness we desired.

Another dish we like to order from Indian restaurants is the Chicken Madras. Taste of Bollywood's dish had tender chunks of chicken that were of a generous size. The curry gravy elevated the taste of the chicken and the coconut cream gave a bit of a creamy flavour to the dish.

One of the various dishes suited for vegetarians, the eggplant used in their Eggplant Aloo had the right amount of bite to them and had a delectable spiced flavour that did not overwhelm the eggplant. The addition of potato provided a bit of contrast with their plainer flavour.
To accompany our curries, we went with the Plain and Garlic Naans. Both naans had a fluffy texture with a bit of a charred flavour from being cooked in the tandoor. The Garlic Naan also had the right degree of garlicky flavour to make eating it enjoyable.

One of the more unusual naans available here is the Vindaloo Naan, which as its name suggests features a topping of vindaloo curry gravy. There was enough sauce to impart the Vindaloo spicy and sour taste to the naan but not so much as to drown out the taste of the naan.

For those choosing to order to takeaway, the restaurant offers various meal deals ideal for one or a small family for a relatively cheap price. All the deals offer you the freedom of choosing your desired curries. The ambience of the restaurant was very good with tables laid with white tablecloths and cushy chairs.
