BEST INDIAN FOOD IN TOWN

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...

Almost once a week we pass the Blue Taj on the way to the movies. We had heard that it was quite good, but my friend's husband was afraid of Indian spiceS. Happily we finally talked him into it. We loved the atmosphere. It was Exotic and very clean. It was broken into cozy spaces. Our server was so patient.... More

This is one place where we like to go when we have a little extra money to sit and have a very nice Indian meal. We enjoy Indian cuisine very much and this is very satisfying food. We also enjoy the buffet they have on Sundays on occasion. The price is a little more but worth it.
