The best Indian food in all of Lexington.

Every time I visit I am more than pleased with the food at Taj India. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There are Bollywood music videos that play throughout the restraunt adding to the atmosphere. One of my favorite Lexington come as you are restraunts. The decor is a little dated but... read more

This is with without a doubt my favorite Indian restaurant in Lexington. It brings authentic flavor and great service. If you are with someone who hasn't had Indian before I highly recommend the tandoori chicken. The presentation as it comes out of the kitchen steaming is not to be missed!

I always go for the lunch buffet which is a great deal and provides a great sampling of Indian food. My son and I went...it had been many months since I had last been because I live a good distance away. The food was wonderful. .as always..the service exemplary.....and the cost...very reasonable and along the lines of a casual lunch... More

We had dinner there few days ago while our trip to TN. Great food and great people. It was like home cooked food.

The food was very good. We shared Chicken Curry (hot) and Chicken Saag (medium). Both were very good especially the Saag which had a good amount of cilantro--one of my favorite herbs. We also had some yummy, cooling Raita and two orders of Garlic Naan. Both were excellent. The service was friendly and prompt to begin with but slowed down... More

Why is an Indian lunch buffet so enticing? Do we think we’re cheating the system by eating more than our stomachs can hold? Is it the smugness we feel when going back to work reeking of curry so that everyone knows where we ate—and wishes they came with us? At Taj Indian Cuisine, it’s more about overdosing on tasty flavors.... More

This is the most average Indian food in town. You can find much worse, but you can also find better. Service is generally friendly and they do deliver (yay). Food is good. I am never disappointed.

The host doubled as a waiter and took our order...mistake. My wife ordered a mildly spiced chickpea dish (not curry) and I ordered a less than moderately spiced Chicken Tikka Saag. The decor looked old and uncared-for though the tables and floor looked clean, both in the bathroom and in the restaurant itself. Additionally, the bathroom was really small from... More

We first called the restaurant and placed an order to carry out as we were passing Lexington on our way to Slade. But we ended up eating our packed food in the restaurant. The service was friendly and helped us make the transition from take-out to dine-in. We ordered Veg Platter in Appetizer and Paneer Do Pyaaza with Naan. 'Hot... More

The food is fantastic. The tandoori chicken was flavorful and tender with delicious veggies and I love their chutneys.
