I have eaten here for both lunch and dinner. Best lunch buffet in town for both the quality of food, service, and atmosphere. If you're in Ashland, don't miss it if you love authentic healthy Indian cuisine.

Taj has become one of our favorite restaurants, and the meal we had during this latest visit was wonderful. The servers are all very friendly and efficient, and the Indian beers are great. We like the fact that Taj offers many dishes that are (or can be made) vegan and/or gluten-free, and that they are clearly designated on the menu.... More

The food at Taj is expensive and, sadly, like other Ashland eateries, had very little taste. It's not easy to find Indian food that has a lack of flavor, especially with the exotic spices that make Indian food, but that's what I found here. Unfortunately, one finds these types of overly expensive restaurants with lower quality of food in tourist/resort... More

nothing to be ashamed about here as the food was decent, but hardly spectacular, and service was attentive. given the relative lack of "unusual" restaurant options in this otherwise interesting city, my score of 3 out of 5 is through comparison to other indian restaurants i've eaten at over the years. there are numerous options for vegans/vegetarians - we had...

Authentic Indian cuisine, casual atmosphere, delicious buffet to try all the exotic spices you may be too shy to order off the menu. Great fast service for take-out too. Fresh natural meats, perfectly seasoned, and great desserts too!

In the last 10 years of Visiting Ashland and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, we have not missed our annual visit to Taj Indian Cuisine. The food is the best Indian food we've eaten. The staff is pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere is lovely.

We stopped here for a buffet lunch before attending the theater. We were extremely pleased with the variety and selection of food available and were impressed that the food was kept fresh in the warming dishes. Somewhat unusual. Good price for a weekday lunch.

We all had curry dishes that were out of this world as far as Indian cuisine. These people really know how to cook and will do it as spicy as you like. If you have a dislike for spicy, they will do it very mild.

Indian food is not always my first choice, but the group wanted to go. The buffet was very tasty. We all throughtly enjoyed our selections, the staff was helpful and friendly, and for my part, a great selection of Indian beer. Recommended for those who enjoy Indian food.

Everything I've tried here is amazing. The chicken korba, the samosas, the naan, the curries; it's all tasty. In addition, the service is fast, and knowledgeable servers explain the dishes and spices used. It's truly a wonderful experience eating here, and they handle our large group easily.

Thank Jody W
