Pretty darn good if you ask me.

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

I go here every time I'm in Maine and there are some on the staff that actually remember me! I highly recommend the punugulu (a super yummy appetizer). The service is excellent - if I emptied my water glass it was immediately refilled, if I arrive before my to go order is ready they ask me to sit and bring... More

We are new to Indian Cuisine, and we were craving some. We found this place through a quick search of "Indian Food in Maine". We were impressed by the delicious food and service. At the very end, they gave us a dessert in which my boyfriend absolutely loved. This will be our go-to Indian place.

I visited Taj Indian place during a weekend stay in Portland, Maine. The owner of the restaurant welcomed us and told us the buffet would be ready in 10 mins. The food was delicious and there was a variety of dishes available. The Nan was good! This is an authentic Indian restaurant and i would like to recommend it!

Finally, a great Indian place in Greater Portland. Not fancy, but that's fine. The food is terrific and the servers are very, very friendly. A very inexpensive meal out, and we are ordering take out three days later!
