The food was perfect and the service was excellent. Very friendly staff. If you like Indian food, you should really go here, it's the best Indian restaurant in town.

Every time we go, we are beyond pleased. I'm not usually one to fork out the extra couple of bucks for a meal, but this place is always the exception. The food is fantastic, the service is friendly and the kitchen in generous.

We have eaten at many Indian restaurants including in India and in other places in Asia. This restaurant is right up there among the best ones in terms of the authentic tasty food. They normally tone it down for the "western" palate but will spice it up for you if that's what you want. We enjoyed lamb curry, chicken butter... More

We enjoyed our dinner at the Taj Cafe and had food to take home too. The waiter made suggestions on dishes and brought potato pancakes for us to try. Be sure of your personal spiciness level. I love jalapeños and spicy food but the spicey rice with vegetables took heat to a higher level. The waiter was very accommodating and... More

This is the restaurant where you are greeted at the door and looked after as if you were family from that first greeting until you walk out the door full and happy. My family has celebrated many happy occasions here as well as traditionally celebrated Christmas Eve Dinner here for the past few years. The lunch buffet has the usual... More

Taj is a great restaurant whether you are there for the buffet or ordering off their extensive menu. The staff is very attentive, you won't have to wait to get your drink refilled or for more naan. I like the choices in their buffet; a bit of everything. If you order off the menu, you will get full! Nice portions... More

Great Indian cuisine with precisely crafted and seasoned dishes. The Lamb Naan was excellent, served alongside tasty Pakoras and Raita. All Chutneys were fresh and tasty. Our main courses included Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Vindaloo. Both were very good and perfectly seasoned. The Vindaloo was adequately spicy. Service was excellent and we even got a desert on the house.... More

For a Father's Day event we called the Taj Cafe and asked if they would deliver a diverse menu. They were wonderfully responsive, said they would put together any combination we wanted. We ordered lamb vindaloo (very spicy and dellicious), chicken tikka masala (smooth and mild), rice with almonds and raising, cauliflower, saag paneer (spinach and cheese cubes), eggplant and... More

The Taj is a restaurant both my wife and I are always happy to go back to. The service is truly special because the staff goes out of their way to make us feel appreciated. The owner is generally there overseeing things... which is always a good sign. Of course, the food is always delicious. The tandoori lamb is my... More
