Great Indian Lunch Buffet

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

We will be back here. The service is top notch. There is so much on the menu we want to try. We got one of the vegetarian samplers and had enough for lunch the next day. If you haven't been here, don't put it off. This place is a jewel in Birmingham's restaurant scene. One of the best Indian restaurants... More

You must like Indian food, of course, to appreciate this restaurant. I started out just going with friends nearly 20 years ago, and at first had no taste for it, at all. But after I got used to it, I realized that the flavors were savory, spicy in a new and different way (at least for me) and highly satisfying.... More

I wish I could give a negative rating for this restaurant. Let me start off with what we've ordered. We started with samosa chat, bhel puri and chicken 65 for appetizers. Bhel puri was all drowned in some weird gravy and was the worst I've ever had. I never knew someone could be so bad at making bhel puri which... More

Recommendation by Bangladeshi family friend well justified. Food was outstanding, service first class, and most reasonably priced. Everything was fresh, great paneer, and as good as Birmingham, England!!!
