About Us

Essence of India is an exotic Indian cuisine restaurant in Tallahassee, Florida. Essence of India used to serve primarily Northern Indian cuisine, which has been influenced by the Moguls, consisting mainly of dishes and breads cooked in a special clay oven (“Tandoor”) and meats and vegetables slowly cooked with its ideal spice combinations. However, since February 2018, under new ownership, the "Essence of India" has transformed into a fine Indian dining truly reflecting the authentic Indian food with myriad blending of herbs and spices from all over India.
