“Maybe the best Indian restaurant in Micronesia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

If you like Indian food you cannot go wrong with Taj. It just might be the best Indian restaurant in Micronesia. I have nothing to complain about Taj - good service and good food. If you want Indian food, try Taj and I think you will be satisfied.

“Good Indian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The prices are a little steep for Koror, where meals tend to be quite affordable, but the quality of the food is high and the staff is very friendly and professional.

“Wonderful and authentic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

In Palau there are no good restaurants. The only exception is the Taj, surprising exceptionally good food and service. Environment is not beautiful, but the restaurant great. this is due to Indian cooks and good, friendly service. I would recommend.

“Excellent Indian food, amazing find in such a small island~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We went to Taj during our first night in Palau and it went beyond our expectations, so much so that we chose to return more times during the week. Each and every meal was absolutely awesome. Now having a chance to just read the previous trip advisor reviews I am a bit confused that we visited the same establishment because to describe Taj as "average" is just really wrong. First of all the service was great. Both our waitress and the bar tender were engaging and helpful with suggesting specialties on their menu. We witnessed the owner each night taking great care to make sure food came out quickly and guests were taken care of. Having enjoyed Indian cuisine all over the world including the best curry houses in London, Bali and numerous major cities we were excited to find a spot in such a small locale that turned out to be so on point.

The Garlic Nan, our first offering, was superb. The kitchen is theater style so you can watch the chefs preparation, the minute it comes out of the oven it's on your table, hot fresh & tasty.

Over the three nights we visited we ordered a variety of other dishes including Almond Nan - nice change, toasted almonds really added a nice fragrance.
Basmati fragrant rice-- had to have this each night , it was amazing, Chicken curry, Tandori chicken, & the Eggplant/ pea dish.. WOW was sooo good.

Atmosphere: We tried quite a few places during the week were were in Palau and felt the overall feel & vibe here was definitely one of the best. They have a nice outside dining area that we would have chosen first however the weather that week was rainy so we opted to eat inside. One night we ate at the bar mainly because the lighting there really well done & romantic. Our only minor suggestion would be the to address the lighting in the main dining room which could be improved to feel more inviting. On our last night we chose a table close enough to watch the chef in the kitchen as he is super animated & entertaining, those that ordered the flaming sword dishes really get a show!
