So good

Three of us had the lunch buffet and all three said every morsel was delicious. The restaurant was clean and bright. The food smelled and tasted great. The service was friendly and efficient. It was a great experience and WE WILL BE BACK!!

We enjoyed yet another delicious lunch buffet here. The Nan is to die for. Each and every dish we tried was scrumptious and you know what? It wasn't so spicy you couldn't enjoy it. It is consistently good and so clean. We were so impressed. We will be back!

We were there for dinner. Once seated, we got some ice water and papadams. The menu has a rich selection of dishes: seafood, lamb, chicken and vegetarian. We got the mango lassi which was excellent, a few starters and a couple of main courses. We also ordered naan, which arrived warm with lots of garlic and was very good. One... More

There was nothing terribly bad about our weekend lunch buffet nor anything especially commendable. Many of the dishes like the Navratan Korma and the Baingan bharta were bland and watery. The buffet table was located in a dingy room off the dining room. The plates and utensils were a bit shopworn as was the overall atmosphere. The service was ok.

I've been to Taj for lunch several times and always get the buffet. I'm not familiar with Indian food other than to say I like everything I tried at Taj India. Don't think you can go wrong with the buffet. The service is excellent - attentive and friendly. The server brought a warm basket of naan and water in copper... More

Often visited this restaurant for lunch. They have nice Indian buffet. Love the ground lamb and the rice. Not that much of varieties, but you will find enough items to complete the buffet experience. The price is very affordable and the wait services are friendly and courteous.

Stopped by the Taj India for their Lunch Buffet. Quick and easy. Walk in, grab a plate, and head for the buffet. I enjoyed two kinds of rice, two kinds of chicken with one being curry chicken and one a red tint to baked chicken. There were two kinds of lintels. One looked like a small black bean and another...

Taj India is my favorite restaurant in Birmingham, AL. It looks a little bit suspicious from the outside, but upon entering you are greeted with traditional Indian decorations and friendly service. I like to come for the lunch buffet. They have a wide variety of traditional Indian dishes served with Naan and water. It's very affordable, clean, and authentic. The... More
