I recently went here to try the lunch buffet, which they have daily until 2:30pm. I wasn't disappointed. The place was packed for a Wednesday lunch! We got the only table. For just under $10, there was a small lunch buffet with a selection of maybe 6-8 entrees? Plus, appetizers. Typical Indian fare. Saag, Vindaloo, Chicken Tandoori, etc, and an... More

We probably caught this restaurant at its very worst when we stopped to eat at 2 PM on a Sunday. They were completely full with a short waiting line with the result being that the buffet table was constantly short of items, and the "service" consisted of being gently prodded to finish so the table could be given to others.

We have literally eaten in hundreds of Indian restaurants around the country. This is the best food we have had by far! The Okra is a dish that no one should miss. The family that runs this restaurant are also the nicest people you could ever meet!

Very nice atmosphere and friendly family welcome and service. The samosas were good as was the Chicken Tikka and the Eggplant Curry. Mango Lassi was not great, and the Aloo Sag was only middling. But it is a nice varied menu and we'd like to go back and try other things. They weren't full but the entrees took a long... More

We had the butter chicken and chicken tikka masala and they were both very flavorful. My boyfriend felt like there could have been more chicken and less sauce.

Went back to back for Dinner and Lunch and loved it. I ordered special Veg Biryani for Dinner and it was simply delicious. Next day lunch was a buffet with great options for both veg and non veg lovers. Sambar was just too good on that day and I liked the bhindi masala also. Another good part about this restaurant...

This chicken curry was absolutely beautiful. The naan bread was perfect. I am defiantly coming back here and trying everything on the menu.

My mother and I had just been in India for a month and we were missing food from home. A friend told us to try this place. The staff were lovely and attentive. We had coconut Nan, garlic Nan, and a mix of things the waiter suggested. Everything was great and satisfied my craving for real Indian food.

It was a pleasant surprise indeed. You do get Indian food across the world; but miss the original taste. It was a different experience at Taj. I am vegetarian and as such tried only veg dishes. However, am sure that even my non-vegetarian friends will have similar sentiments.

Was a bit hesitant as we drove ard and ard. to find this restaurant and the broken entrance signage for the commercial district didn't help. So it was a really pleasant surprise to find this no frills but Delicious Indian restaurant. The food seemed especially fresh and tasty. Living in India I get a chance to taste many foods and...
