We visited Taj on a slow Monday night and had a fabulous experience. We ordered coconut curry lamb and saag paneer which were both outstanding. The staff were friendly and attentive and brought us several little extras.

They have great service and great food. I love the sweet pashori naan. They always give me a free rice pudding and the front window seats with the cool curtains are quaint.
