The India booth serves up some bold Indian cuisine, with options in 2022 including samosas and chicken tikka masala.
You can hit up this marketplace as you travel from the China pavilion to the Germany pavilion or vice versa.
Last year, this was one booth that served some good-sized portions. They were great for sharing!
If you’re not a fan of bold flavors or heat, you may want to steer clear of the India marketplace.
But, if you are a fan or are looking to expand your palate, this is usually the booth to try.
Who knows if we’ll feel the same this year, but we’ll soon have more thoughts to share about the items in 2022. Stay tuned!
Here’s everything you need to know about the India booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Warm Indian Bread
Warm Indian bread with pickled garlic, mango salsa, and coriander pesto dips.
Special Diets: Kid-friendly
Heather: Delicious. Love the combo of flavors, a nice sized portion, and easily shared.
Felicia: Delicious and all the dips were flavorful and great but very different. Highly recommend.
Allyson: You can’t go wrong with bread and yummy dips. Reminded me of the amazing bread service at Sanaa.
Korma chicken served with Basmati rice, crispy chickpeas, and a spiced yogurt sauce.
Special Diets: Gluten-Friendly
Heather: I loved this. The flavor was spot on and the chicken was delicious. The seasoning was perfect for my mouth!
Felicia: Super delicious chicken. Tender and the sauce is full of flavor. The crispy chickpeas add nice texture. Huge portion, too.
Madras Red Curry
Madras Red Curry served with roasted cauliflower, baby carrots, chickpeas, and Ben’s Original Basmati Rice.
Special Diets: Gluten-Friendly, Plant-Based
Heather: Just okay – and too spicy for me.
Felicia: Not much flavor, the texture isn’t great (grainy from the chickpeas and mushy from the other vegetables) and the rice is nothing special.
Allyson: A very tasty vegetarian option and a really good portion size. But, if you don’t like spice or heat, avoid.
The Mango Lassi is a fruity and creamy Indian beverage.
Note: Also available with alcohol.
Made with Alcohol?: No
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.
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.
Price: $5.00 (6 oz.) / $9.00 (12 oz.)
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
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.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
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.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
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.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Heather: Tasty, a bit sweet, but perfect for cutting down the fire in your mouth after trying the red curry dish!
Felicia: Milky, thick, and sweet. Very quickly tastes like melted ice cream.
Allyson: This just isn’t my thing. Too milky and creamy.
