I get take out from here about once a month. I like spicy. I ordered the samosa, bread basket, dal ap and lamb vindaloo. The spice is just right. I ordered lamb vindaloo from Nirvana and it was nothing but searing hot pain. You couldn't...More

My wife is a vegan, so I try to leave her home at lunch time. (Only kidding). We went at lunch time and had the buffet. My wife ordered an ice tea but they only had milk tea, so we both had water. The lunch...More

Can't say that Indian has ever been my choice when dining out in New Orleans. But I ended up at Taj Mahal one evening. All of the dishes we had were flavorful and nicely done. Service friendly. Good for a change of pace.

The exterior of the restaurant probably chases away some people but they don't know what they are missing. Good food with an excellent spice level and friendly knowledgeable wait staff. Just wish we were closer as I really want to make this a regular visit!!!!

In a place with not so many Indian restaurants, it stands out. The food is pretty good. The ambiance isn't all that great though.

I've been to a lot of Indian restaurants in US and a limited redundant menu is a disappointment. Taj Mahalo offers really tasty Indian food and the ambiance is calming and very well decorated. We were able to relish each bite of our food. There's...More

We'd been before, and I picked it for my birthday meal. We arrived at 1:30 for the buffet, which they said ended at 2:30. From what we ate, I think it ended at 12:30. No new food came out, and only bland, dry scrapings were...More

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond
