Some of the best Indian food we've had Stateside.

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... read more

A small but exceptionally well chosen menu. Great service and equally tasty food. If you like Indian cuisine you will love this one. quite a large restaurant, but I would think reservations necessary for weekend and holiday evenings. You can choose the degree of spiciness on a one to five level. We chose three which suited us just fine. Really... 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.

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 and tamarind. I had the Kolomino Patio...shrimp sautéed with spices and... More

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. If you are a... More

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
