That’s right, we drove 2 hours for this delicious Indian. First appearance is nothing to desire but the food speaks for itself. Fairly priced. Excellent for vegetarians. Very authentic taste.

We had a great time tonight at Taj Indian Cuisine. Excellent job dealing with allergies ! That’s always a concern. That aside, food was authentic (based on all our time in India, and all the Indian food we make) . Highly recommend.
