About a year ago we stopped off in Ventura on the way back from a road trip to Oakland, and just walked into the Taj Cafe as pretty much the first place we saw. A couple of hours later we staggered out full of one of the best Indian meals we'd ever had. I can't remember specific dishes now, but I did remember the amazingly generous supply of extra "on the house" items that kept coming. Back there this week, and yep... same again. The Chicken Tikka and Lamb Curry thalis were copious and delicious, and so were the (extra, on the house) Masala Chai Tea, potato pancake starters, and desserts. Comfortable, old-fashioned, slightly shabby decor, and the service that wonderful mixture of the off-handed and attentive that only Indian restaurants seem to do. Unmissable.
