“New Find in my own digs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

A good friend just took me, for my birthday, to lunch at a restaurant I have passed by a 1000 plus times as I live right here in this little resort community. I don't know why I never thought to try it but am so glad that I've finally found it as the food was terrific!, the staff very pleasant and the booths and table settings/linens immaculate. The Taj Mahal will become a regular choice for me now when I just don't feel like making dinner for the family but I can easily recommend it to any of the visitors to our local who may be staying at the nearby casinos and/or hotels.

“Excellent Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant is in a hotel so at first I though it might not be so good. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the warm wonderful flavors of authentic Indian Cuisine. I understand they have a new chef, so if you tried it before, try again! It is also relatively inexpensive---$10-$12 a dinner plate. I loved their Nan.

“Good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Stopped by for dinner and enjoyed the lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken and a veggie masala. Yumm. The place is under new ownership and the service was great. Check it out.

“Not bad at all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Indian buffet in Tahoe? Who knew. There were a variety of tasty Indian dishes in the buffet and the naan was fresh. We went back and filled our plates again and we would definitely return.

“Excellent Thalis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've been coming here since the first time we visited SLT - cliché, Brits like Curry, I know - and always find our way back for more. It's recently had a change of ownership but the menu was the same as ever. We are creatures of habit and ordered the huge Thalis - cannot remember the names of them. They are huge and a bargain when compared with some other menu items - the amount of food is almost obscene, we've yet to finish one. As is typical, you'll find a selection of small bowls on your plate, each with a different curry. The lamb is always delicious, mutter paneer
