Last night marked my fifth meal at this restaurant. Every time I've gone there, the food has been excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful, always welcoming. Besides the superb offerings, I am pleased that many of the selections can be made without dairy upon request. There are a few dishes that, due to the essential needs of the recipe,... More

This was our first visit to an Indian restaurant, and it was so wonderful, we can't stop talking about it. Our server was Raj, he bent over backward to make sure every need was taken care of. We chose the Chicken Chili and Lamb Vindaloo. Both were outstanding, but the Lamb Vindaloo was unforgettable. I can't wait to go back.... More

I have ordered off the menu in the past but did try to buffet on this visit. I was happy with most of the dishes. The chicken curry didn't have as much taste as I hoped nor the chicken tikka masala. I loved the lentil curry, spinach curry, naan, and fried bread. The pakoras were great too. I loved that... More

Me and my wife celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary with 40 friends in Taj India recently. If you want to host a party of 40-50 friends, with Indian food...this is the place. We had this huge place to ourselves, decorated the place according to our wish, played our own music and danced till 11PM. As usual, the food buffet was... More

My boyfriend and I tried this place the other night. He loves Indian food and I was a little skeptical to try it but I am glad I did! Not only was the food absolutely amazing but the service was awesome! Raj was our waiter and we had so much fun with him!! He was entertaining and very outgoing. Very... More

I live in Cleveland and was on vacation when I had the pleasure of eating at Taj India, in Lexington. The food is unbelievably good due to combination of spices, good preparation and above all, a fantastic cook. I have never been to an Indian restaurant that could offer so much at such reasonable pricing. It could almost justify it... More

Food and service were very good. We had the vegetarian dinner for two. Sauces were excellent complements to the fare. While the exterior is neatly don't, the building's interior is a bit run down. The space seems too large. I would recommend the food and friendly hosts at a five. The furnishings bring my scoring down to a four rating.

Like Andrew S we weren't so impressed as the other reviewers here. The pluses: it is cheap and they are accommodating and nice. As far as the food, I suppose it could work well for those who never have had Indian food before as an introduction (the food won't be too scary), but it isn't that nice. But, if you... More
