Great food and service

The food and service was great. The restaurant could use some updating and cleaning. The hallway to the bath room made me wonder about the cleanliness of the kitchen. They could use better lighting and atmosphere. But overall the experience was fine. Very tasty.

Love the food at this place. The lamb that I ate was excellent. That garlic and cheese naan were hot and delicious. My kids loved their rice and my husband devoured his chicken dish. Dal was good too, my 2.5 year old thought it was the best soup ever!. The restaurant was clean and it is clear that it is... More

This restaurant may not be very fancy, but the food is amazing. The staff was very nice and attentive. Our food came quickly. The Garlic Naan, mild Chicken Corma, Vegetable Samosa and Chicken Pakora were our favorites. I only gave it a four star because of the non-eye pleasing decor which seems to be the norm for this type of... More

While I am not a huge fan of Indian food, this place is making me change my mind. The service is great and the food unpretentious and delish! Chicken Korma was the best and I have ordered twice. Once my fellow diners tasted it they ordered it the next time. Good food-enjoy!

Me and my friend have been to Taj Mahal. This was the best Indian food I've ever had. We ordered Chicken Tikka Masala. Lamb Corma, and Garlic Nan. Everything was so delicious and fresh. Service was great. I would recommend you this place. I would definitely go back.

This is best Indian restaurant in Salem and now this is my favorite restaurant. I ordered samosa for appetizer and it was very delicious. I also ordered Chicken tikka masala and it was so good and I ordered baingan bharta and palak panner that was soo good too. I would go there again.

Before you eat there, take a deep breath~ smell any nice cooking smells? walk back towards the bathrooms, glance in at the kitchen~ see any indication of sanitary practices? visit the cleaning supplies in the corner near the ladies room~ still feeling good about the place? If so, enjoy your meal, if not, run, run, run. Sadly, I did none... More
