Good quality Indian, similar to those in UK

For travellers from the UK I would describe this as above average curry house, good meat dishes, poppadum's, naan and rice.

My sister goes here all the time and brags about it. I went there tonight for my first time and it was delicious! I had the garlic naan and butter chicken. Both were absolutely delicious! Will definitely come back here again!

Had lunch twice here during my stay. The food quality is mixed, some very good and some poor. Indian buffet with North Indian cuisine. Daal (pulses) should be a part of such menu. The timing of operation should be increased (missed lunch one day as reached late by few minutes)

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, a fairly large selection of salads, and mango...

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
