My daughter asked to go to Royal Taj for her birthday. This was my first visit to the new location. The dining room is expansive and decorated very nicely. The service is amazing and no detail is overlooked. It was busy on a Saturday night...More

Looks like a high class restaurant in India - very attentive staff, good food, flashy, gold decorated interior. But, its one big room, very noisy and almost impossible to hear your friends talk. So not so good unless you are by yourself or like to...More

The service here is outstanding: courteous, crisp, semi-formal and professional. I am a cynic of buffets, but this buffet set me straight. The food is piping hot, fresh, well presented and maintained, and seasoned to perfection. Coupled with a large dining room and opulent atmosphere,...More

$14.99 sounds right. Their full menu is on their website, but it does not list the buffet. It is available at lunchtime everyday.
