We were happy to see an Indian restaurant in Bend on a recent visit. We love Indian food. The atmosphere could use some help, but overall it did satisfy my Indian food craving. It was average, not any dishes that were amazing, but was all very tasty. The buffet seemed fine to me, lots of good options. The eggplant fried... More

I have steered clear of Indian food for most of my life but on this occasion I decided to take a leap. I had to go outside to make a phone call and I had my daughter order for me. I ended up with chicken vindaloo and it was awesome. I think I might be a convert! Thanks Taj Palace.

We recently returned to Taj Palace to see if it had changed at all as we love Indian cuisine. I was so glad we did as it has improved immensely. Everything was so much better, but especially the buttered chicken and mixed vegetables, as well as the saag paneer.

A Bend friend enthusiastically recommended the place, and we jumped through hoops to find it (a few doors north of the theater) ... and were we disappointed! The spices were heavy-handed and not as sensitive to the flavors of the main ingredients as usually the case with Indian food. My partner couldn't eat one of the dishes -- not shown... More

I am going to give it another try. We had the buffet and it was not up to snuff when it comes to good Indian foods. My husband really loves Indian and he was not impressed. Mine was pretty good, but I don't like spicy food so that might have been the problem. We will go back though.

We went on New Years Eve 2012 and were the first customers. The place is run by a family and the mom really knows how to cook! We ordered the Chicken Tikka (breastmeat on skewers), Mushroom Sag, Veg. Samosas, Garlic Naan, Mango Chutney, Mango Laasi, and Chai (two adults and a 5 year old). Everything was delicious. Since we ordered... More

This is a family run restaurant and was reasonably priced for the quality of the food. It wasn't very busy on a Sunday night and is centrally located in downtown Bend. Indian food out can be expensive but in the case of Taj, you got a lot for your money. It was delicious and affordable!

I ordered the tandoori mixed grill and my friend ordered saag paneer. Yum! If you order a dinner you get a great array of side dishes too and papadam and naan. The sauces for the papadam are fresh and flavorful. The menu is extensive.
