The lunch buffet always provides a wide choice of freshly prepared, delicious choices for a very reasonable price. Family fun with friendly staff always ready to serve your personal requests.

I had the Non-Vegetarian Dinner Combo with Lamb Jalfrezi. It was OK. My main problem was that the food wasn't hot (temperature). The Jafrezi didn't really have a hint a chili, and it should be med-hot with fresh serranos. For a Friday night, 3 covers might have been revealing. It wasn't awful, but I could make better Indian food at... More

The food has always been good at the Taj Palace, and this is a family-run affair. Be sure to stop in and try the many great lunch specials...plenty of fine food and at a very reasonable price too!

Both the guest and I order the combination plates which gave a little taste of four different dishes plus rice and yogurt. It was simply delicious. I got medium spicy but I would have classified it as spicy. On Mondays they have a dinner buffet which is the best way to experience Indian food. They have a similar buffet everyday... More

I'm Englsh so I always look forward to Indian food because of the history of Indian restaurants back home. San Luis Obispo really only has two and this is the best one. I took my daughter there for dinner last week and wasn't disappointed.

We stop by here a few times a year for a taste of India on their buffet. We find it pleasant, some decent variety on the buffet items, and priced well. We have had friendly service, and because we are not big fans of super spicy, like the fact that you can add you own level of heat to the... More

The paneer dish did not have that much paneer in it. The biriyani was full of chunks of boneless chicken thigh meat which was tasty. The... More
