This place is not good and I cannot understand why it gets decent reviews other than people in the area do not have access to any place better. I love Indian food and have had it all over the US, UK, and Europe this place...More

I’m a huge fan of Indian cuisine, and this is by far the best I’ve had in the United States! The service was attentive, without being disruptive. The food was delicious, and decent portion sizes. And the price was much less than I was expecting...More

Taj is a wonderful place if you like Indian food. We'll run and attentive staff only add to the deliciousness of the meal. We go for the buffet and enjoy the variety; something for everyone. Yum- yum all the way!

The vegetarian entrees on the buffet can best be described as bland, all four of them and $10.99 is too much for this. They only have white basmati rice on the buffet. The have only one bathroom.
