This is my fav place to go for Indian food in Spokane.Price is reasonable with lots of options in buffet. I love their goat curry and biriyani. I was amazed to see people writing bad about their behavior, every member of their family was so welcoming every time we went there.

We were in town on business, and a group of us were taken here by locals. The waiter (the only person with whom we interacted) was very solicitous and professional, and made excellent menu suggestions when asked. The food was some of the best we have ever had at an Indian restaurant; rich, tasty, and some very healthy choices available.... More

The food was very good. They had a nice variety for a vegetarian. The atmosphere was plain but clean.

The location and look of the place leave a lot to be desired. But the buffet was very good. The best part was they don't make your naan until you sit down. DELICIOUS! They had some items I had never had before. I will go back.

I was there couple of times, food is somewhat okay, but the behaviour the guy is not good at all. you dont feel good for what you are paying, Area is not clean, restaurant is owned by family members and the employees are all family members, which is why the service was bad. Attitude is not good.

The building is dark, old, and you don't even know if it's open. Once inside the dark entryway, the main eating area is mostly bare walls with some monitors playing Indian music videos-entertaining. Booths are old, stained, but clean. Now things get better. Service was very prompt, friendly, and warmed the otherwise cold atmosphere. We received some free crispy flatbread... More

Most likely the restaurant is owned by family members and the employees are all family members, which is why the service was bad. There were two waiters that were waiting on us, which was why they each came over and asked us if our orders were taken and how was everything. It was really annoying to have someone come over...

Fresh naan, spicy curry seasoned to perfection as hot or mild as your tastebuds desire, exotic fare, friendly service, authentic surroundings. It doesn't get any better than this!

Taaj has gone through many incarnations. It used to have excellent food. As of August 2013, the ownership had changed hands and the food was mediocre at best. It was difficult to taste any spices but the bitter ones. And as is my usual complaint with bad Indian food, they used too much ghee. My guess is this is how... More
