This was our first time, but it won't be our last! This was absolutely incredible! The chicken Tikka masala was mouth watering! Tender, creamy and sweet even though I ordered a spice level of 5, I will try hotter next time. The naan was amazing...too! Highly recommend!More

I tried the buffet on Saturday. Food is ok but not the best indian food i had. The flavor is stale. If you are craving indian food this place might satisfy you but if you are an indian food fanatic i think it might disappoint...you.More

Was visiting in town and took my husband and mom this time. My husband was not sure he would like this cuisine but he was very pleasantly surprised.

My nieces took me here, as I am always into new foods. I am not a spicy food person, but after a little explanation (if to spicy, drink some water and it seems to wash the heat away), decided to try some. It was so...good. We all had huge plates of food, so we could share, although theirs were more spicy than mine, it was not bad. I will definitely be going back to try other items on the menu. Thank you.More

I have eaten at Taj Mahal many times over the years. The food and service are always great, but I want to highlight how they go above and beyond in their customer service. I sometimes order take out from Taj Mahal. Since I use a...wheelchair, they happily bring my order out to me so I don't have to get my chair set up, transfer into it and go in to the restaurant to pick up my food. A small thing, perhaps, but it means a lot to me and makes my life a bit easier. Thank you, Taj Mahal!More

We were looking for an Indian Restaurant and discovered Taj Mahal. Each time we have visited the restaurant, the food has been delicious and the service very good. Also, the prices are reasonable. We like the appetizer Chicken Tikka (on the dinner menu, its call...Taj Chicken), and usually order it as our dinner along with another dish (we are working our way through the menu, trying many of the dishes). It's a popular go-to for restaurants, always busy Friday and Saturday nights, but we have never had to wait for a table.More

The service and food are excellent for the price. When travelling from Tennessee my wife said we had to go back here to eat. She is very picky when it comes to Indian food.

My wife and I were in Lancaster for a weekend getaway / anniversary. I had already chosen Taj Mahal secretly and without looking at reviews... As we pulled into the parking lot, I felt slightly nervous. It sits back next to whatever shop is next...to it that seemed closer to the parking lot by several yards. I mentioned it being a little hole in the wall kinda place. However, fears were quickly diminished as we walked in to a gracious host. We took our time combing through the menu, ordered a jhinga pakora (shrimp) appetizer, wife ordered chicken tikka masala, and I ordered crab malabar. The appetizer was brought to us fairly quickly. We tried 2 chutneys with our shrimp and were pleased with the variety of flavor and heat. After a little conversation and sipping some water through the heat, our entrees had arrived. We were quick to acknowledge the tastes we haven't thoroughly enjoyed in quite some time at other nice Indian restaurants. I have to say, though, it all started with the welcome from the host and ended with he and the owner bidding us a fond farewell.More

Tuesday evening at 6pm and the restaurant is over a third full. Good menu to choose from and the quality of the food is excellent. The service from all the staff was tremendous and they all looked great in traditional Indian dress. My only negative...comment is nothing to do with the food or service, but the place itself, both outside and inside are looking tired. Could do with sprucing up a bit.More

Excellent food and very good vegetarian options. Nice live Sitar music and neatly maintained rest rooms.
