Wondering why King’s Kitchen ranks so highly on our list? Then check out some of the stellar reviews on Trip Advisor… “The blend of spice and flavor in the entrees is far better than most Indian restaurants in the Fort Worth area. Kind of spicy, but every bite is delicious,” says one reviewer, while another enthuses “There are several really good Indian food restaurants in Ft Worth, but this unassuming new place clearly rises above. The decor is a little unusual, but clean, bright and modern. The sag paneer is perfection! Highly recommended!” If you still need convincing, there’s nothing else for it but to head down to Trail Lake and see for yourself.
2. Swad Indian and Nepali Cuisine
Where: 8333 Sohi Dr, Ste 100, Fort Worth, TX 76137
Not many Indian restaurants in Fort Worth offer a drive-thru, but then again, there are not many restaurants like Swad Indian & Nepali Cuisine. Unless you’re in a hurry, we’d recommend you resist the temptation of the grab and go option and book yourself a table. Not only will it give you the chance to soak up the inviting ambiance, but it’s also the best way to truly savor the delights of a menu that offers some of the best Indian and Nepalese dishes you’ll get anywhere in Texas.
