This place has a great North Indian fare and good tasting food. The service is very good as well. The buffet and the a la car menus are both very good.

We absolutely love the lunch buffet here. The Nan is fresh, hot and spectacular. The service is great. The staff is friendly. The food is consistently tasty. It's spicy when you want spicy and not so spicy when you can't handle the heat. Just great tasting food. If you enjoy Indian food, you will thoroughly enjoy your meal among the... More

Worst Indian food I have ever ate on this eastern side of the USA. Do not give this place a try, especially if it's your first time trying Indian food.

We'd tried another Indian place in town, but a visit to the Taj lunch buffet won us over! Quite a few meat dishes, but vegetarians would do OK there, too. The mulligatawny soup was delicious, as were the spinach and chicken dishes. Everything was fairly spicy, but raita and a cucumber salad were offered to cool things off. Located in... More

Been here a few times for lunch (buffet) and dinner and so far the food and service have been great. The foods aren't too spicy indicating that they're more of the northern indian cuisine compared to the more spicy southern indian cuisine. Lunch buffet offering is pretty consistent and fresh. I especially like the fresh naan they bring to your... More

The food here is so good! There is a large variety on the buffet and the temperature is always right too. The those who serve and work here are friendly and the service is good too. Parking is a little tricky at the lunch hour, but can be found. One of my favorite places to eat.

The two of us enjoyed the Taj India lunch buffet. The $8.25 per person cost was very reasonable. The selection was Very Good in both Quality and Quantity. The main dishes were well-seasoned, but the salads were bland. The atmosphere within the restaurant is pleasant and the seating is comfortable. We would return.
