Flavorful authentic food, savory and pleasantly spiced

Taj offers a variety of Indian and fusion dishes, authentically spiced and flavored, and well presented. The breads were very good, the korma quite good, and generally all our dishes were very tasty.

Whenever we're in the Portland vicinity -- whether staying for a few days, or just passing through to points north or south -- we always look forward to having a meal at Taj. Spotlessly clean, and run by a lovely South Indian family, the food is consistently authentic and delicious. On our most recent visit in June, we arrived in... More

We live right up the road, and have eaten at Taj many times since they opened. The food has always been excellent, whether take-away or dine in. Sometimes the service is a bit slow, but it has always been worth the wait. The menu is extensive and you can tell that the food is made to order. This can take... More

This is our go to restaurant when we come to portland. It's hard to find Indian restaurants that do South Indian food, and that's what we love the most. This place does it sooooo well!

Amazing Food and such nice people! The Paneer Tikka Masala is my Favorite. The buffet is great. Yummy Veggie Samosas, Punugulu, Pakora, Cheese Dosa, Saag Paneer, Chana Masala, Chicken Khorma, Garlic Nan, Gulab Jamun and Mango Lassi are AMAZING!!!! This is a wonderful family owned and operated restaurant. If you had ever wondered what it would be like to have... More

I really enjoyed the meal and the ambience. It's an unpretentious place, small but welcoming and the food was delicious. I ordered the lamb vindal and the meat was tender, the heat was perfect and the naan bread was very tasty. My husband ordered the mixed tandoori and loved it. Each component was distinctively flavored.

Buffet style Indian at its best. Simple dining experience joined with easy and friendly waitstaff. Definitely planning on coming in for alacarte dining to try other items on the menu.

Wanted to try something new. Went in for lunch and had the buffet. There were no explanations as to what the dishes were so everything was a surprise. Unfortunately, the food was not very good at all and I will not go here again. The waitstaff was very nice.

Stayed one night in S Portland (stayed at Marriot Courtyard in S Portland) and was craving Indian Food. So glad I found this place. Located in the outskirts of a shopping mall it was kind of hard to find due to mountains of snow after a big snowfall this week. Not much to look at from the outside and the... More

Have been meaning to eat here for some time, and our party of four, including two with first-hand experience of Indian cuisine in various parts of India, were completely pleased. This is the only place I know of in Maine with S. Indian food, and we loved being able to taste a wide range of spicing and ingredients. Classic dishes... More
