I went to this restaurant with my Indian friend so that he could introduce me to some traditional desserts. We were treated with great service, always having our drinks refilled and our server was very attentive. I would definitely go back.

Stopped by here for dinner on our way back to DC from a weekend in Allentown and Easton, PA. Their dinner buffet was solid. Great selection, tikka masala was mild and excellent for our kids, lamb curry, paneer, chic peas, etc. We were really craving Indian or Asian food and this really hit the spot. Dessert selection was great too... More

The Taj Mahal might not have the greatest location or the best atmosphere, but the food is Excellent! I highly recommend the garlic Naan, the Curry, Jal-Freji, and the Tikka Masala. Great place to take the family or visit with friends. The staff is extremely friendly!

My wife and I come here frequently for the buffet. We just love the variety. We come hungry and try a little of everything. Great way to find out what you like and what you don't. Also great if you have 2 or more favorite dishes. Can eat them all at one time.

Located in a plaza with an old couch outside I thought I had made a mistake. Boy was I wrong. Once inside we were seated in a very elegant setting. Staff was very attentive. The food was phenomenal. Can't wait to visit again

Stopped for lunch. Service was great. Food was just avg at best. Buffet should be more varied and more spicy. We are used to curry dishes and spicy dishes. Food was dry and very little taste. Will not go back.

I've found that I can avoid one or two items that I don't care for and still enjoy the remaining items on the buffet enough that I consider it a good value. The several times that I've been there I've only had the buffet.

I enjoyed the lunch buffet. It was fresh and delicious as always. Service and atmosphere are delightful. I always add extra hot sauce, as they make the buffet dishes a little on the mild side.

My wife and I have been going to the Taj Mahal for about 15 years. We now live in Ohio but every trip to PA we stop at the restaurant. We time our arrival so we can enjoy the lunch buffet. This restaurant has served consistently good food for over a decade.
