India Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

India Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

The India booth at Epcot Food and Wine is one of our favorites. Why? Because we love everything on the menu. You read that correctly. Everything.

It’s rare for us to like every single menu item, but the India marketplace never disappoints.

From the plant-based Potato and Pea Samosa with Coriander-Lime Cream, to the kid-friendly Curry-Spiced Crispy Cheese with Mango-Curry Ketchup, to the absolutely delicious Chicken Tikka Masala with Fennel-Spiced Yogurt and Naan Bread, you can’t go wrong these food items.

Then, there’s the Taj Mahal Premium Lager, the SULA Brut Tropicale Sparkling Wine, and the SULA Chenin Blanc. These are all solid alcoholic beverage choices.

If you’re not a fan of bold flavors or heat, you may want to steer clear of here. Or, you could also purchase either the alcoholic or non-alcoholic Mango Lassi. But, you definitely have to be a fan of the texture and the creaminess of these particular beverages.

Photos & Reviews

Curry-Spiced Crispy Cheese

Curry-spiced crispy paneer cheese served with mango-curry ketchup.

India Paneer
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Crispy, love the mango curry ketchup, but kinda flavorless overall.
Heather: It’s like a mozzarella stick but a different texture. I bet kids would like it, but skip the ketchup if worried about being too spicy.
Felicia: This has a good flavor but the paneer is very dense. Big portion though and the flavor is fun.
Allyson: I really wanted to like this especially since it’s fried cheese, but it was ok. A little fry for me. I really liked the Mango-Curry Ketchup (didn’t find this spicy), though. A good option for kids.

Potato and Pea Samosa

Potato and pea samosa with coriander-lime cream.

India Samosa
  • Price: $5.50
  • Special Diets: Plant-based
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the size, textures, and flavor. Great portion. Love the coriander-lime cream.
Heather: Crispy shell and very flavorful filling. My only dislike is the heat level; it’s too spicy for me but if you like spicy Indian food, you’ll like it.
Felicia: I didn’t expect to like this but it is very good. The filling is bursting with flavor. The breading is cooked perfectly and the sauce on top adds a fresh touch. Loved.
Allyson: A good vegetarian option and very good portion size, but be prepared for spice!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala with a fennel-spiced yogurt and naan bread.

India Tikka Masala
  • Price: $6.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portion, flavors, and just the right kick.
Heather: Fantastic flavor. Spicy but like a level 1-2, so not too bad. Very flavorful!
Felicia: This is a huge portion and is delicious. Nice spice to it, the flavor is great and the naan bread makes it even heartier. Delicious.

Mango Lassi

The Mango Lassi is a fruity and creamy Indian beverage.
Note: Also available with alcohol.

India Mango Lassi
  • Price: $5.00
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Nice mango flavor and decent portion.
Heather: I think this has a great flavor and really cuts the heat of the curry. I just like the one WITH the alcohol better.
Felicia: This one tastes like melted ice cream. Don’t like. Maybe good for ice cream fans.
Allyson: I didn’t like the alcoholic version and I didn’t like this either. I don’t want all this milk and cream on a hot day.

Taj Mahal Premium Lager

The Taj Mahal Premium Lager is made by United Breweries in Bangalore, India.

India Lager
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but missing much flavor.
Heather: I thought this was really good – very easy to drink and has a nice flavor.
Felicia: Very easy to drink beer. Great for the heat.
Allyson: A very tasty beer that’s easy to drink.

Sula Brut Tropicale Sparkling Wine

Sula Brut Tropicale Sparkling Wine from Nashik, India.

India Brut
  • Price: $7.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Wanted to like this in its cute cup, but it’s overall very dry and bland.
Heather: Extremely light, which may not be great if you like a full-flavored taste, but when it is 100 degrees out, it’s really great.
Felicia: Very sweet for a brut. Not a big fan.
Allyson: Definitely on the sweeter side, but has good flavors.

Sula Chenin Blanc

The Sula Chenin Blanc is from Nashik, India.

India Chenin Blanc
  • Price: $6.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light, small portion, kinda bland
Heather: Just ok. Nothing fancy or special.
Felicia: Fine but a little sweet.
Allyson: I actually liked this for a white wine and it was much better than many others I tried at the festival.

Mango Lassi with Sōmrus Chai Cream Liqueur

The Mango Lassi with Sōmrus Chai Cream Liqueur is a fruity, creamy Indian drink that is served with a rum-based liqueur.
Note: Also available without alcohol.

India Mango Lassi Liqueur
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Slightly better than the non-alcoholic version of this drink because the cream liqueur adds some much-needed flavor.
Heather: Tasty, a bit sweet, but perfect for cutting down the fire in your mouth after trying the samosa dish!
Felicia: Milky, thick, and sweet. Very quickly tastes like melted ice cream.
Allyson: This just isn’t my thing. Too milky and creamy.
