We always enjoy the Taj lunch buffet.

The dinner menu is good, too, but the lunch buffet lets you taste a variety of North Indian dishes: the usual tandoori chicken, an excellent butter chicken, with a third meat dish - sometimes goat, sometimes fish (which is hard to find in Tampa's Indian buffets!) - several vegetable dishes, a daal... read more

I really enjoy their food, tandoori chicken, chicken curry and more. Their naan and samosas are delicious. their tomato and onion chutney is my favorite anywhere. They have the best chicken tikka masala I've ever had. They have a very nice lunch buffet too.

The lunch buffet is great, most of the time. Once in a while they run out of an item, and don't replace it. I go there twice a month, and will continue.

This was absolute treasure to find. My family went there while we were on vacation and it was as good as some of the best Indian restaurants in Chicago! Very Impressed!

My wife and I enjoy eating Indian food wherever we travel. It's a weird quirk of ours and then we try and decide where the best dish is cooked. The Taj was really good, not the best, but by all means worth a visit. The butter chicken is very creamy and delicious (I'd prefer a little more tomato versus cream... More

I've eaten here for lunch buffet and dinner and love their food. The buffet keeps the spices pretty mild but if you order from the menu, you can have your food made as spicy as you like. The Garlic Naan is wonderful!

They have the best butter chicken in town. My only gripe is that it's a bit pricier that most Indian restaurants, if you are ordering al a carte... My suggestion is to enjoy the weekend lunch buffet for a taste of a lot of things (butter chicken) included, at a more affordable price!

I went here with a friend after class and had the lamb rogan josh and it was incredible! I am horrible with the names of the foods, but when you get there they bring out 3 sauces and some kind of chip and they were very delicious! We went on a weeknight and there was only one other couple in... More

When I found out that Taj has a lunch buffet I've been a few times. The food is good and plentiful. The jasmine rice, saag paneer, and naan bread are my absolute favorite. Their cold salad items are wonderful, too. Just right for a hot Florida day. I like that I can try different things and not be stuck with... More
