Not worth it. Food tastes better but after few mins feels dizzy . Please don't go there. They are good priced and not worth it.

The food had my taste buds dancing. I have been to a lot of different Indian restaurants, and Taj os one of the best for quality of food. The owner/chef was a gentleman. Highly recommend this place.

Love this modest little restaurant and the delicious twist the chef puts on the dishes -- the combination of Indian and Asian flavours is fantastic and mouth-watering. Get there and enjoy your meal. I have been back many times and have never been unhappy.

This place is so good I literally have dreams about minty chicken curry, lamb bhuna, and anarkali kofta. The bread is soft and warm. The sauces are thick and rich. The seasoning is perfection. Just go... Was this review …?

Taj Indian Bistro offers a unique dining experience, as exotic and enchanting as this fusion of Hindu and Buddhist Cultures.Fusion food is a general term for the combination of various forms of cookery and comes in several forms. Regional fusion combines different cuisines of a region or sub-region into a single eating experience. We call our cuisine Indian Modern and we believe it captures the contemporary movement toward the tastes of the more modern plate.No matter what dietary philosophy you follow, we have something for everyone. We believe you shouldn’t have to lose-out on taste just because you follow a special diet. We therefore cater to special diet groups like vegetarians, Gluten free and vegans. We also serve Halal meat and gluten-free delicacies. The ambience is marvelous & exquisite interior décor that lend a contemporary look. And it all gels together in a setting that showcases passion and love for hospitality. So dig in and don’t be shy to indulge....we know you’ll be back for more....
