We visited around the Christmas holidays so the restaurant was a bit full/ service not quite as welcoming. That aside the food was extremely delectable! We tried the prawn starter which was a TINY portion but delicious (may not be worth it). Main dishes were all finger-licking good as well (lamb with "tikka" sauce, fish curry and another lamb dish--can't... More

Service is good but the best thing about The Blue Taj is the food. We always get the chicken tiki masala or chicken korma. Both are absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this place!

We reached the restaurant at 1.30pm for lunch. Were seated in a poorly illuminated area although majority of the tables were unoccupied. While we awaited our friends arrival, we were informed that the kitchen closes at 2pm. As soon as our friends arrived, we hastily ordered Goat curry, Prawn Ambotik, Leek kofta, and a vegetarian platter. We were repeatedly reminded... More

Drove 1.5 hrs to come up to Charlotte to have dinner. We decided on Blue Taj. Warning it is a good idea to make reservations as there could be a long wait to be seated. Everything was amazing. From appetizers to after dinner chai. All spices were blended and cooked to where the taste was just amazing. We had 3... More

Don't get me wrong... this place is still good compared to other Indian restaurants in the neighborhood, especially for North Indian cuisine. Issue is, off late, the taste has been a bit of lottery. There are days when it is really good and there are days when you think... what the heck. We regularly do a take out or drop... More

Our group of Asian American and non-AA business colleagues enjoyed dinner at Blue Taj last evening, and it's my new favorite Indian restaurant in Charlotte! Varied menu for vegetarians and non-vegetarians, attentive service (explained the menu items and even asked how hot, on a scale of 1-5, each wanted), prompt with water and wines, but not overbearing. And the food... More

Blue Taj is the closest you're going to get in the Carolinas to NYC or London Indian food! The servers go out of their way to help you find something you will love to eat.

Shrimp Biryani was outstanding. The vegetable samosas were also very good. The Chicken Tikka Masala was great and portions were very good. Went for dinner - but will definitely check out the express lunch menu. Worth the trip for great Indian food!
