We picked this restaurant because we wanted to try something different and we do not have any Indian restaurants in our small town in the Nevada desert. The restaurant has no curb-appeal but few people go to restaurants for their looks. My wife and I shared an appetizer sampler, a vegetarian dinner sampler, and a Kingfisher beer (22oz). Both dishes... More

Some items change depending  on what day. Delicious tandoori chicken pieces from... More

I went to Taj Mahal on Mother's Day and it was very busy. The buffet was nice and offered spinach, a tikka masala, a spinach dish, naan and fruit. The chicken was cooked nicely and the atmosphere is pleasant.

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Albuquerque. I love Indian food and this restaurant does not disappoint. The staff is very friendly. The menu has so many wonderful dishes, it is hard to pick. Their Garlic Naan is wonderful. Highly recommend!

We saw the Taj Mahal listed in the AAA guide so we made up our mind to try it whilst in Albuquerque. We were met and seated by a charming lady (possibly the owner). As the style of food was Punjabi, which are less familiar with, the staff were very helpful in helping us to order. The food was delicious... More

Our adult children wanted to have dinner at Taj Mahal. We drug my husband there--he doesn't think he likes Indian food. However, he chose the shali khorma, and he was very happy with it. We liked the atmosphere, the food, and the service.

Bad food. No taste. All pseudo Indian curries. Cooked in butter sauce and tomato sauce instead of authentic Indian spices and gravies. Indians are not treated well. As though we are dining first time outside.
