Food is good; can't say the same for the management

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... read more

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.

Went here for lunch with a couple of colleagues. We had various dishes and everyone was pleased with their selection. The food itself is very good in quality and not hidden by "drowning" it is sauce to hide the quality of the main ingredients as some lesser Indian restaurants do. I had the Amritsar Chicken Tikka which was very good... More

The indian food here is prepared in a north indian fashion. The flavors and textures of the food here will leave you wanting more. The restaurant is also decorated in a yin/yang, fire/ice theme that is stunning for whatever the occassion. There is a wonderful Sunday lunch buffet that gets pretty busy but is worth it!!

My wife had never had Indian food and I really like it. We wandered away from the Ballantyne Hotel and found this place in sort of a mall. It's quaint on the inside but nothing fancy. The service was great, the recommendations were incredible, and the Indian beer was something I'll look for again. Oh, and the food was the... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Blue Taj, which we visited on a weekend trip here. There are menu has many good choices, as appetizers we enjoyed the masala cauliflower and the vegetable somosa. The cauliflower had a rich tomato based masala which was tasty, and you just can't go wrong with the somosa and it's zingy tamarind sauce.... More

Dinner quite good. Service friendly and knowledgeable. Ambiance just ok. Price is good also. Located in large shopping area and a little difficult to find.
