For a restaurant in a strip mall, this place is a stand out. The restaurant was busy but we had reservations and were seated immediately. The staff was exceptional- they did not rush you through dinner. The food was the best Indian food we have had since London and the price was very reasonable.

This was the best Indian Food I have had in a while. I had the Tiki Masala Salmon and my wife had the Tiki Masala Chicken. Both were delicious as were the sauces and bread that was served before the meal. The manager even came over and comped me a glass of wine for no particular reason. Service was very... More

The good was wonderful! Samosas tasty, roti buttery and the mixed grilled meats sizzling hot at the table with tons of flavor. This place is fit for fine dining yet kid friendly. My husband and I arrived with our very active two year old and they greeted us very nicely holding all doors open. Eager to eat they waited on... More

We went to Royal Taj for dinner last night. Pretty crowded, lucky that we were seated quickly without a reservation. The service and attentive staff are fantastic. My friend got the Tandoori Mixed Grill and loved it! It included shrimp, chicken (several different types) and lamb. It was a lot of food! I got curry chicken and it was fabulous,... More

I was introduced to Indian food nearly 25 years ago, where I lived for 8 years, it becoming my favourite ethnic food. Years later, when I was in London for a week on business, I ate Indian every evening - that's how much I like it! Simply stated, Royal Taj is as excellent as the many fine Indian restaurants I...

This Restaurant is a premium delicacy! They have various types of indian foods, and they even have vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I would recommend to go here during their lunch buffet. Their prices are affordable, and their food is divine!

Great friendly service. Food is fresh and served hot. Wish I were in town longer so I could try the buffet during lunch.

If you are hunting out a restaurant worth going to in the Columbia area, look no further. You have found it! Food, service, customer curtesy, friendliness, are all simply outstanding. Decor is elegant. Atmosphere is welcoming. A rare gem. Recommend making a table reservation in advance as unsurprisingly this restaurant is extremely well patronized. If you are worried about Indian... More

I have eaten in all of the Columbia, MD Indian restaurants and they are all pretty good... Better and cheaper than Montgomery County. I would have to say that the Royal Taj has the best food and a clean comfortable atmosphere. if you go for lunch you may want to go early because it can get crowded. The service is... More
