The Real Deal

Our first time at this chic, distinctively designed Indian restaurant in the heart of Ballyntyne--and it won't be the last. The entrees were superb. Rich and tasty and the real deal with ingredients. My girlfriend had the Kerala-style scallops and salmon in a creamy curry sauce with coconut, spices... read more

I went with my nephew and wife for my birthday dinner. They are local to Charlotte. Very pleasant greeting and attentive service. Lighting was a little too dark for my taste. Food was good but not great, I am used to more variety and spice to my Indian food. Somewhat pricey too for the portions.

A restaurant within a outdoor mall with surprisingly good food and with unique decor. When we first saw this place we had low expectations. We started with a couple of appetizers both vegetarian, and extremely good. Two vegetarian entrees and some naan bread. Everything was freshly made and tasty. It was very crowded even at 8:30.

We were in the area waiting for traffic to clear and saw Blue Taj on a Yelp search. We both love Indian food and decided to give it a try. Glad we did. It was really good. Despite having the address and Google maps, we couldn't find it. I had to call as we were walking aimlessly around. It's underneath... More

The Sunday buffet is incredible, and the chicken tikka masala. Great ambiance as well. Have dinner and then catch a movie.

The atmosphere is amazing. The place is decked out in fire and ice decor. The menu is vast with delicious cocktails such as the chai martini. The food is amazing. They have a wonderful Sunday brunch that is buffet style. Well known to locals in the area so come early or be prepared to wait.

I enjoy the buffet at Blue Taj. It is really great starting with Panu Puri for an appetizer. There is plenty for vegetarians to eat. Great entree foods and great deserts. It is nice atmosphere and great service. It is a very nice place to go.

A little pricey but enjoyed the experience. Quite dark dining in rear, some plates not restocked in a timely fashion. No dal, too much fried and breaded. No single dish stands out. Wish one Charlotte Indian restaurant would break the mold, not holding breath. Perhaps that explains more about the customer base than the restaurants. Probably shouldn't have traveled so... More

We were staying nearby and thought to check it out for lunch. It is a great place to dine with nice decor. Though we weren't too pleased with food.

My wife and I made reservations for Valentine's dinner at the Blue Taj. For background, we are both originally from India. We showed up at 7:15 for our 7:30 reservations, and the place was pretty chaotic, with people milling around. At 7:45 I asked the manager if he had an idea how much longer it would be since we had...
