While in SD this summer for my birthday I dragged my friend Winie (Dominican but more adventurous than most) to this "restaurant" (only knew about it from DR1) and I was not disappointed. It may have been a bit spicy for Winie, but just fine for me. I made a reservation by e-mail and there were expecting us we were the only ones there and were made to feel right at home. I think the beer had to be retrieved from a local colmado but everything else was done "in house" I strongly recommend it.Taste of India is run in the family home of an Indian man who teaches at an international school in Santo Domingo. If you're interested in eating there on Friday or Saturday night (a buffet) , be sure to reserve in advance, or you risk arriving and finding they're not cooking that night because no one booked. The owners speak English and are very friendly, but this isn't a full-time restaurant. Rates are reasonable and the food is decent. The weekday lunch specials have been too heavy on starches and had too little meat and vegetables.
For those who want to cook Indian food themselves. Asiatico Asian market (on 27 de Febrero esq. Ave. Privada) sells a variety of Indian ingredients and condiments.
