Whoa, seeing in at the number one spot for Columbia today makes me write this review. Royal Taj is your average American Indian restaurants. Food is good, service is fine, but its not even the best Indian food in town. The restaurant is crowded inside and the detracts from the experience. We eaten here twice and both times wished we headed to a different Indian choice inside. Chicken tiki masala tasted like it had fake "smoke" flavor added. Tandoori chicken, again, same thing, it's like they were adding something fake to make it seem like it had been properly roasted Ina tandoori. Their paleek paneer had no flavor, seemed like bland creamed spinach. A few other items were better among the things we've tried, hence I will say overall it was good. But man, don't drive to Columbia to go here! Mango Grove, Akbar, House of India are all better choices for Indian in the area.
