60 bucks for 3 adults and two kids for a lunch Buffett. Wasn't bad, but bit that good either. Would go back, but won't take my kids

These people were do great helping us with the menu. We don't know anything about Indian food but wanted to try something different. The food was great. I have know idea what we are but it was good. Each course was cooked to order so if you are in a hurry this is not the place to go. But if... More

I went for lunch. The waiter was very nice but they only had a buffet for lunch although he offered to let me order off of the dinner menu. I took the buffet. They had good lentil soup but the rest of the food was pretty boring. I heard him tell someone that they couldn't spice it too much out... More

This place is great and the owner is very friendly. I love eating here especially for the buffet and naan. The buffet is not always hot but still delicious. Sometimes it is a hit or miss but worth it every time. I grew up eating Indian food an it's hard to get close to why I'm used to. Taj Mahal... More

After seeing their TV ad decided to try the buffet, It consisted of lukewarm chicken and some watery spinach and beef and potatoes. It was served with Indian bread and watery pudding for dessert. The TV ad showed shrimp skewers on the TV but the owner said they would be rubbery if left on the buffet. The iced tea was... More

I have reviewed this place on every site I can find to promote it on. Every time I have the money to eat out Taj Mahal is the first place I go. The owner and his family take great care of their customers, and we spent a great evening with them Christmas Eve. The owner takes great care in preparing... More

1st time visit here. A little worried that on a Friday evening, there was only one customer in the place. Typically this is either a sign the place isn't any good or just that Abilenians prefer their texmex and bbq over a little Indian adventure. Naturally the service was good - we were only one of two customers in the... More

The Taj Mahal is not just any restaurant. I have been going since they opened and several of my friends go, as well. The owners treat you as family. They will go out of their way for you. If you are dissatisfied with anything, you only need mention it(as everyone has different taste.) They will fix something else for you.... More

You walk in to a dimly lit cavern with hot steam pouring from the kitchen in the back where all the light peaks through. Curry, curry oh Allah the curry. I'm serious it reaks of curry so much so that it has ruined the furniture, walls, entire building and drive down buffalo gap road. Back to the restaurant though. You... More

Perhaps I was like most people, in that I was a little hesitant to try something very different - or at least I had built it up in my head to be very different. Alas, I broke down and went with some friends to Taj Mahal and was really pleased with the food. They have a buffet, with various Indian... More
