Madras Dhaba - Best Chicken Tikka Masala in Austin

October 7, 2019

Some people aren't a big fan of food trucks.  I enjoy them a great deal.  My sister and I found Madras Dhaba on Grubhub because they deliver to Lakeway.  This is the best Indian food I've had in years! Much better than what I've found in Austin, and what I've had in Dallas, Houston, Denver or LA.  Perfect flavors, spicy like I expect, and the rice is spectacular!


If you aren't familiar with Chicken tikka masala, it's a dish of chunks of roasted marinated chicken in a spiced curry sauce. The sauce is usually creamy and orange-coloured. There are multiple claims to its place of origin such as the Indian subcontinent and the United Kingdom. It is among the United Kingdom's most popular dishes.


Tikka Masala is perfection, the lamb biryani is full of flavor, we get medium spice and is def spicy enough. The sag paneer is luscious.  I'm originally from Chicago and lived on Devon ave, full of fantastic authentic Indian food, this little truck is the closest I've come to those flavors. The gentlemen that run the truck are always kind and patient.. as I write this review that I have been meaning to do for months.


Everyone considers this spot to be consistent and excellent Indian food.  Samosas, garlic naan, saag paneer, chicken 65, and channa masala are among the best I've had anywhere.  Portion sizes are generous and priced very reasonably.  Ask which entrees are served with rice so you know how much extra naan/rice to add on.  My only complaint is that they abandoned us over on 620!!  We definitely called/rolled out there a few times only to find the spot empty.


I highly recommend it!
