“Always have a great lunch at this place”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

The buffet is fast and the naan is brought hot to the table. Not really spicy, but well-seasoned. That'd be my only complaint, but one can add the spicy chutney on top. I get that it has to be low on the peppers for a general buffet.

If you are on Erie and in a hurry but are really hungry, this is the best place.

“The Five Stars Are Right!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

Short review: food is fantastic. Everyone who says it is great is correct!! I don't have an Indian restaurant near me--this meal would have been worth the 11 hour drive itself. The bread alone would have made the meal! I will be back.

“Delicious Indian food”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We went to Taj Mahal during our visit to Niagara Falls, and we stayed in Syracuse and one of the days for dinner we checked out some good places online and found out about Taj Mahal, so decided to go and try out this place. We had ordered malai kofta , shahi paneer, alu Parantha and naan, mango lassi's . Everything was well proportioned and delicious in taste. Honestly, we did not expect good quality and taste of food at this place. Everyone in our group enjoyed the meal. The complimentary rice was so well done, sometimes simple dish like plain rice is also messed up at some places. At the end, the manager served us ras malai and Kheer Indian dessert to everyone in the group. We were four people. I would highly recommend this place for the food.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Judging from the other reviews on this page, we must have caught this place on a bad day.

We visited the lunch buffet on a weekday, and regretted it almost as soon as we sat down. Table setting, glasses and waiter's shirt were all dirty -- but hey we're here for the food, so how about that? The naan was quite good, but it went downhill from there. Everything was sweet - the tikka was so sweet that it almost tasted like barbecue sauce. In addition, there was almost no spice, just lots of cream and lots of sugar. For the first time I can remember, I went to a buffet once - only once - and really just didn't feel like seconds.

The price was quite ok - 22$ for two people - but for food that was a notch below ordinary.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

I have eaten at many Indian restaurants but I would rate this one to be the best. Their food basically from northern part are more authentic in taste. The indian bread here is better than any that you would taste anywhere else. Barring one or two dishes from the southern part of India the rest of the food was very tasty. The food was hygienic and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to taste authentic indian food. Would eat here again when visiting Syracuse, NY.
