I hsvd been on fstes twice to this restaurant. And I just love it. It is so much larger and atmospheric than the outter building appears. And the wait staff is impeccable. I disagree with the comments about beef in that though Hindus don't eat beef, many other groups in India do. The owner is wonderfully attentive. And last but... More

...so you don't need to eat here. Friendly and nice people but the food, although gets good reviews generally, was vinegary and boring. It was our first time. I ordered a vindaloo style chicken dish. I t wasn't very spicy and there in my bowl was a chunk of quavering fatty grizzle of dark meat "chicken". Gross. I had to... More

First off this is the only "Indian restaurant" i know that serves Beef - this comes from a sacred animal to Indians so you know straight off this is owned and run by New Mexicans that pretend to be Indian. Food was pretty poor quality, lamb was more like old mutton and although portions were huge the food was really... More

Dinner is excellent here. Prices are reasonable. The lunch buffet is quite good (I would say B+ and the cost is a little more than some other Indian buffets in town) Dinners are the best though. Lamb dinners are excellent and there is a lot for the vegetarian also. The wait staff is probably some of the most courteous in... More

I had not been to Taj Majal for a few years but it seemed the perfect place for date night. The wait staff walks you through all of the options and makes great recommendations. The food was amazing and the price is super affordable. You cannot go wrong with anything but you must try the lamb. Delicious!

Taj Mahal is excellent in every way. Very clean, delicious food prepared with precision. Lunch buffet daily 11 am to 2:30 pm. I went at 2 pm today and everything looked like it has just been prepared even though the restaurant is incredibly busy every weekend. Food preparation is amazing. I have eaten there many times but I was still... More

Love eating here. The staff is friendly and great. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. And the food is simply superb. Savory flavors cooked and spiced perfectly. Whatever you order will be a treat. Don't miss it.

Was outvoted to go here. Actually I'm glad we went. It was a bit dark in the place, I thought it was to hide what the food looked like. Was very happy with a shrimp curry that was quite spicy (the way I like it) and the flavor? Forgetaboutit! Wonderfully sinus clearing and tasty. Glad I went. Just turn up... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and it never lets us down. We have also ordered from them for parties and they are generous, reasonable and the nicest people to deal with. They always treat us as though they are genuinely pleased to see us. Food is so authentic - generous servings and reasonable prices. Our children... More
