The Most Interesting Appetizer We've Had

The Taj starts you out with a pickled onion appetizer that resembles that found in Mexican restaurants. The flavor is not hot and not burpy either. It goes very well with the fried nan chips. My lamb masala was also very good. I judge Indian restaurants by how tender the lamb is and my lamb was... read more

If you are going to eat here, go during the lunch buffet, it is much better and you can get all your wnat to eat. I have eaten here several times but its on the other side of town and I just am not over there anymore..

Absolutely awful! The only Indian restaurant I have ever been, and I have to many all over the world, where the food does not taste like Indian food. Everything on the buffet was cold. Surprised that they are rated as one of the best. Can't imagine how bad the other restaurants must be if this is one of the best.... More

I go to lunch here at least one a month, their buffet is great and the price is very low as a buffet and soft drink is $9.65. Very good selection of food every time.

The last party menu's are 2 non veg started Chicken 65 and Thandoori chicken, and 2 veg starter Panner chillie and veg pakoda were awesome. Also the main menu of non-veg Goat curry, Chicken... More

I had the lunch buffet as recommended by a friend. Great smell of exotic spices upon entrance. The buffet did not disappoint. Loads of choices of curries with naan breads, rice, fried veggie appetizers. Yummy fried bread balls, rice pudding and coconut ice cream for dessert, if you have room. At $8.50 after tax, this was a great deal!

We have had their luncheon buffet on numerous occasions in the past and have never been disappointed. Their menu is extensive, with numerous soup, bread and entree selections, and the portions are large. I have specifically tried their Coconut Soup, Lentil Soup, Saag Paneer, Saag Lamb and Mixed Grill, all of which I highly recommend. The service was attentive, but... More

I have visited Lexington four times in the last two years. We love to go to Lexington because we stay there as a base for sight-seeing around KY and even TN. Another reason is Taj India where we know the food is excellent, fresh and tasty and the service is great. I have tried many of their dishes and honestly... More

My wife absolutely loves this place. They have a great lunch buffet at an unbeatable price. The owners are always very welcoming. The restaurant could use some updating.

It was late and dark and we were tired and hungry from packing up at the Home & Garden show. Being unfamiliar with Lexington someone kindly recommended Taj India. When I called the restaurant to confirm their hours they said "come on over." When we arrived they welcomed us warmly. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and... More
