Our family loves this place. We can't wait to just walk in the door to smell the aroma. 5 of us ate here last night and we were quite happy again. We started with Samosa, chai, and a few different types of naan. Our main entrees included chicken tikka masala, vindaloo, and lamb curry. All were delicious. The restaurant was... More

We love the Taj Mahal restaurant. The food is delicious with it's many layers of flavors and spices. You can really taste the food without a lot of hot spices. Favorites are Chicken Tikka Masala, vegetable, or any Korma, Lamb Curry, Malai Kofta, Aloo Paratha, Also, Iced Tea and Rice Pudding.

Have been a regular to this restaurant for years, it's always been a great place to eat and bring Friends. If you never have had Indian try it, you have no idea what your missing. I have been to great NYC places for Indian many times, it's hands down the best local place and that goes for the Reading Area... More

I do enjoy Indian food and this is a good mix of Indian and Nepalese. Delicious food, nice, friendly service; and overall, one of the better restaurants because of the large buffet variety for those who want to try new things in small doses. Service is courteous and professional, not speedy.

There are limited options in Lancaster for Indian food, Taj Mahal is the nicest I've been to and the service is very good and efficient at whisking away used plates and refilling water glasses. However, the food (talking about the lunch buffet only here) is underwhelming, just really lacks any memorable items and everything is a bit "dumbed down", imho.... More

We were in Lancaster during off season and many restaurants were closed. Taj Mahal was opened so we gave it a try. The portions are large enough to share and were tasty. a full service bar is available.

Taj Mahal has a pretty extensive menu and I always enjoy my meal there. The food is great and so is the ambiance. Service was very good as well.

Indian cuisine is my favorite "ethnic" food in the world. I live in NYC and have access to every food in the world -- from Antarctica to Zimbabwe… and if you've ever been in Curry Hill you'll know we have no shortage of Indian restaurants -- there to Jackson Heights and Flatbush and back. Taj Mahal -- first -- a... More

This is a really nice place for Indian food and is complemented with an excellent ambiance to go with it. The food is good, staff is friendly. A bit pricey but worth the quality offered.

We have eaten at the Taj Mahal restaurant in Lancaster, PA several times and always had an excellent meal. They will prepare the food to your taste (mild, medium, or spicy) so everyone can enjoy their food at the spice level they want. They have a good selection of reasonably priced wines and the service is always excellent. If you... More
