On our second visit it exceeded our expectations even for what we expected to be as good as the first, it ended up being even better. We asked Michael (I believe he is one of the owners) for his recommendations and he did not disappoint. The lamb was the best I've ever had and all the special attention we received... More

I don't know why so few restaurants seem to understand that we eat with our eyes. This is especially true of Indian restaurants: so many Indian dishes, when you find a website that actually has pictures, all look like mush. Taj Cafe not only has pictures on their website - their dishes all look different.. and appealing... and you can... More

Excellent taste of food and service. There were lots of varieties of food including fish curry. The food was hot and fresh. Michael, the owner has great service and was very accommodating for the 6 of us. I would definitely come here again.

I went to taj cafe for dinner with my friends. The place was packed. We ordered chicken tika masala, lamb vindaloo, fish tika with rice and naan. It was the best food, full of flavor. This was our first time at this restaurant. We will definitely be back. Service was great.

In their defense we went there on a busy busy Saturday night and they were slammed when we got there. We had to wait outside for a table, were told the wait wouldn't be long and it was, then were seated and it took forever to be served. They tried to satisfy us by bringing out food on the house...

We got a coupon for restuarant.com and we were so excited to order from taj with all the good food reviews. We ordered food from Raj and in the beginning we were told that we can order anything and we were not told that we cannot use all the coupons combined. Okay thats fine. We got to the total and...

Some of the best Indian food I've ever had. Michael treated us great. Ask for the chick pea soup. Would definitely eat here again.

The restaurant was crowded, but the service was excellent and the food outstanding. The flavors and spices were incredible. The best Indian food we have ever tasted. The owner, Raj, wanted us to try a special dessert that was his own and recently mentioned in Gourmet magazine.....carrot pudding. In a word, it was fabulous. A great meal a very gracious... More
