I took my friend here for her first authentic Indian meal and she really liked it. We got a few different dishes and shared . We ordered it "HOT" and it wasn't too that bad. The waiter had a hard time under standing us a little bit, but in the end, we left full and said we would have to... More

An Indian restaurant in a strip mall in South Portland, Maine? We ventured in. Most of the diners looked Indian or Asian...a good sign...and it smelled deliciously like curry. We were warmly greeted,seated and asked for drink orders. The huge, colorful menu listed a wide range of south Indian dishes in addition to the usual curries, appetizers and bread. Hmmm,... More

Whenever I'm in Portland, ME I try to stop in to Taj. The food has been consistently good, the service is attentive without being overbearing, and it's quick! I've never had the buffet, but their chicken tikka masala and garlic naan are my go-to. Give it a try!

I absolutely love Taj. The people that own it & work there are super friendly & helpful. I've never ordered anything from there (recommended or not) that wasn't delicious. It's not fancy and is in kind of weird strip mall area but don't let that deter you from trying it!

No matter where I travel, I always try to find a local Indian restaurant. And if they have a buffet, that's even better! Taj was great. We went for the lunch buffet. There was a great variety of dishes, and the price was very affordable. Food quality was very authentic and delicious. Some offerings were VERY hot, even for someone... More

I've been to India twice and next to it this place is the place to go to for GREAT Indian food. I ordered the Chicken Biryani for dinner and then ordered the Shrimp Tika Masala to go (I had to work that night), both were just out of this world good. They gave me so much that I had to... More

We are very particular with regard to where we go for Indian food. Taj will not disappoint anyone who enjoys authentic Indian cuisine. The restaurant itself is not fancy, in fact it is very plain. So go there to enjoy the food, not the ambience.

We went to Taj for Valentine's Day dinner. The service is quick and attentive and the food was delicious. My husband usually orders Lamb Curry - he mentioned that this time it wasn't as thick as usual. Before we left, the cook sent him home with another portion which he ate for lunch yesterday it was excellent. We always have... More

I loved the food here. Simple and yummy. It was crowded but got the food on time. More of a homestyle cooking.
