“i really wanted to like it!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

i went to taj cafe with an open mind and hungry. the poor waitress spoke no english and i basically played the point at the picture game. after ten minutes or so she was rescued by the friendly owner who did a good job of explaining his offerings. i started with the appetizer sampler platter. the falafel was dry and the battered fried vegi thing was...well...battered fried veg-all. i just wasnt excited about anything on the order. then i ordered a lamb gyro...it came out really greasy and the bread was dissolving in my hand. i really needed more tzatziki sauce to flavor everything with and the poor waitress brought me sweet and low! there are many components to making this business work and they all have to be in place. offer splenda or equal to your customers....hasnt sweet and low been killing rats since the seventies. i will have to admit the garlic naan with mint sauce was tasty but my total bill was near 30 dollars!

“Great food, and sensible prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Love the fact they have food for every one from Greek, Indian, and american. Portions sizes are just right, not too much or less. Wait staff friendly, and knowledgeable, good prices. Have eaten there often, always got an gyro , really tasty.

“Must EAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Amazing place to eat! Huge Menu with dozens of great tasting items. I like this place because its authentic indian.. with REAL SPICES. Not the mild bull at other "authentic" indian restaurants. Very reasonable pricing.

“Delicious Indian Food! Great menu with clear descriptions of the different dishes-”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

We ate at Taj for lunch, stopping on our drive from Birmingham to St. Petersburg. We spent about $30.00 for three people, including an appetizer and cheese naan. My son and I split the butter chicken entree after sharing an appetizer combo platter. Delicious foods and sauces!!! My husband ordered a BBQ park sandwich with fries, but wound up enjoying the Indian fare much better. I didn't try the BBQ, so can't comment on that. Our waitress was very friendly and competent. Great experience overall-
