Great introduction to Indian cuisine

Our adult children wanted to have dinner at Taj Mahal. We drug my husband there--he doesn't think he likes Indian food. However, he chose the shali khorma, and he was very happy with it. We liked the atmosphere, the food, and the service.

Bad food. No taste. All pseudo Indian curries. Cooked in butter sauce and tomato sauce instead of authentic Indian spices and gravies. Indians are not treated well. As though we are dining first time outside.

I have been to Taj Majal many times and the food is always good. There is a great buffet for lunch with several choices. They are always busy at lunch time so they are constantly bringing out trays of fresh food. I have never been there for dinner so I do not know about that.

I've never been a fan of curry because it overpowers food and pours out your pores. Well, Taj has changed my mind about Indian food. They do it curry correctly. We've been here more times than I can count for over a decade for lunch and dinner. I like both but the lunch buffet is definitely a deal, and for... More

This is one of the restaurants that I will crave long after I leave ABQ. Awesome and consistently good food. Some will argue that there aren't enough spices to be authentic but my family seriously enjoys eating here. The staff is very friendly, attentive, and its not hard to see why they have so many regulars.

Really great Indian Cuisine. I have been here a few times and the owners and very involved in ensuring you are happy with your selections. If you don't know what to order they are very helpful in asking you questions to suite you pallet and making suggestions. Nice atmosphere. Yum.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We eat here every time we come to Albuquerque. The staff is great and the food is amazing..I am a huge fan of curry and I am never disappointed. The portions are good size and always take the rest home for another meal...highly recommend.

Good buffet. Excellent variety of Indian food. Chicken Korma to die for. Entire buffet is low heat and not to the level of "real Indian food". Good, but not spicy. Would recommend for families and novices
