Blue Taj is a flavor-exploding Indian cuisine restaurant with a modern styling and good service operated by the same owners of the classy Copper Indian Cuisine in Charlotte. Whatever you do make sure you have England's national dish (called that due to it's popularity in London and through the UK), the Chicken Tika Masala! The Vin D' Alho or Methi... More

My son told me that I can never go to another Indian restaurant in Charlotte because I will be disappointed anywhere else. This place is fantastic. I have actually been three times in the last two weeks with family or business. Vikram runs a super organized and friendly staff. Congratulations on continued top class food.

This place may be a little difficult to find as it's tucked away behind the movie theater - adjacent to the parking garage - but WOW! it's definitely worth finding. The ambiance is fabulous, with 4 different dining areas each having their own "theme". Great for anything from a romantic date, to a fun lunch/dinner with friends, to a business... More

Upscale Indian Restaurant. Attentive and helpful waiter who helped us navigate the menu. My wife and I are vegetarian, our guests are not. We all rated the food AMAZING. cannot wait to go back. Only negative was that GPS did not do well and was a little tricky finding the place. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for vegetarians.

Restaurant was extremely well run. Staff was very courteous and attentive to patrons. Food was close to what you would find in New Delhi and outstanding in flavor and presentation. Great, economical place to eat.

On a business trip, I said I was up for "whatever"... and we ended up here. Absolutely the best choice. Great service, great authentic food... should be rated higher than #100 so I'm giving it a perfect rating! This won't break the bank, either!

The Best Indian we've found since residing in the QC. Blu has been a savior to us Northern'ers in search of good Indian food. We have so many options and choices up North that are awesome and once we got to the QC there were slim pickins for GOOD Indian cuisine. We frequent Ballantyne Village for various restaurants like Terrace... More

So good!! I got the chef's medley so I could try a few things. Everything was tasty! We had a hard time finding it, you have to walk like you're going to the theater.

A surprise in south Charlotte ... We've had Indian food almost everywhere we've travelled (though we've never been to India!). Blue Taj was exceptional. Four of us shared a Vegetable Samosas and a Coastal Prawns appetizer and followed with a double Chicken Tikka Masala and a Vegetable Korma. The rice bowls kept getting refilled, and we soaked up every bit... More
