“Best Service in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We have eaten at the Taj a few times now and the service cannot be beat. The food is excellent, reasonably priced, and plentiful! For a wonderful dining experience where you are treated like a king and queen, go to the Taj Cafe!

“Great Food & Great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Found this place by accidnet and glad we did. Absolutely delicios food. It was the aromatics wafting through their front door that drew us in and we feasted on Aloo Tikki, Shrimp Masala and the Chicken Tikki Masala combination. Exquisite layers of flavor in the sauces. This is at the top of our list when next we're in Ventura! Thank You for a lovely dining experience Taj Cafe!

“Our favorite Indian restaurant in the LA area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The best Indian restaurant in Ventura county. We drive a half hour from the east end of the county for this restaurant. Excellent food - don't miss the warm tofu and mushroom salad. The more traditional Indian cuisine items are also mouth wateringly good - try their uttapam (I always get this item) and their Peshawari naan. We also love their korma. Hard not to like every item on the menu. Warm and friendly service.

“Authentic Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Even looking at the online menu with pictures and descriptions before we ordered, we had a hard time choosing from the extensive menu. The Taj Special gave us a taste of several tandoori meats and shrimp... juicy, flavorful and filling! The lamb naan is enough for a meal and well worth the price. The spicy tandoori tiger shrimp were cooked perfectly. We were treated to a dish of Chicken Masala, which was rich and creamy. My only regret is there was no room for one of the traditional desserts. Next time I'll save room for the Gajjar Halwa (carrot pudding with raisins and almonds!). We're going back for the lunch buffet to sample more of their dishes! The prices are reasonable, service is great, but most important: the food is authentic and delicious.
