I've been going to Taj Mahal for years. Pretty much only for the lunch buffet. It's fantastic with Saag, Chicken Curry, Tikka Masala, Basmati rice and more. A great value too !

Hidden jewel, balcony dining, good selection and good hospitality. Every item was authentic Indian. Specializes in buffets, brunches and dinner dining. You won't be sorry.

I went here today with a friend and we each ordered a dinner entree. Our dinner entrees were each $12.95, which gives you a small portion of chicken and VERY LITTLE RICE!!! Okay, so we each ordered a dinner entree and we should have been...More
