I love Indian food, but not this restaurant. The floor was stained and dirty. The service was very slow and unfriendly. Saying the food was so-so is the best I can do. This is not a popular place. We were there for the lunch buffet on a week day and stayed for 50 minutes. During that time there was not... More

Offers a good menu of Indian food, well-cooked and appropriately spiced, so you could find mild, medium and hot dishes. The starters were huge (share one between two) but the main course dishes were thankfully more of a European size so we could enjoy a range of items. Clean and comfortable.

You may just be in South Lake Tahoe for a few days enjoying your limited vacation time...if this is the case...choose another restaurant so you don't waste any of your precious time or valuable money. This place has awful service, is quite dirty and the food was not good. I've been to many Indian restaurants and this was by far... More

Over the years we have had several excellent meals in this restaurant but this year was even better! Every dish was perfect and freshly cooked.

We've eaten at the Taj Mahal before several years ago. Living in Mesquite, NV where there are no Indian Restaurants, we were looking forward to real Indian Cuisine. The new owners didn't disappoint! Service was great, restaurant was very clean and the food was wonderful. I like my Indian Food spicy and they accommodated me very well. I had the... More

LONG overdue (Mr. Owner, I apologize!) We had a craving for Indian and along the bus ride home after a day on the mountain this place appeared. Perfect! Quiet, clean, low-key, accessible, affordable, delicious. We were on foot and were just fine with the walk. But the owner volunteered graciously to give us a ride (5 mn) back to hotel.... More

We had a buffet lunch. At c$11 + tax it's value for money. you get around 4 veg dishes and a similar number of non veg dishes with rice and fresh nan. Food tastes decent. Deserts could do with some improvement. Restaurant was clean. Worth a visit if you are missing Indian food.

Restaurant isn't fancy but the food is delicious and the service is good. We will definitely eat here again when in the area.

Stopped in this restaurant (adjacent to Quality Inn) for lunch just as it opened for lunch. The lunch buffet includes the staples of an Indian Buffet: lentals, chicken dishes (and tandori) as well as an excellent chick pea dish. Lunch buffet price was reasonable and the mango lassi is among the best we've had.

The buffet was fairly decent, although certainly not the best Indian food I've tasted. The restaurant itself was dirty and certainly could do with being cleaned, and the tablecloths were filthy, the waiters white uniforms were filthy, and if that wasn't enough to put us off ever going back, then the visit to the restroom afterwards was. Rarely have I... More
