We come here about once a month and almost every Christmas eve. This is one of our favorite places to eat. Buffet is great, stuff is friendly and the coconut ice cream is possibly my wife's favorite thing in the world.

I know some of the best Indian restaurants in London and Birmingham UK where we have a long history of benefitting from Indian immigration of people and their food culture. This restaurant serves excellent Indian food by any standard that I have experienced. The owner and staff are really friendly, courteous and helpful. I thoroughly recommend it anyone who wants...

I'm looking for good Indian food in Lexington. This is not the place. My naan was burnt and the chicken saag was good but not great. I won't be returning, will keep looking.

We came for the lunch buffet and it was Fantastic! Curry Chicken and fresh baked Nan on the buffet was amazing! Staff was very friendly and the service was some of the best we've ever experienced.

My co-workers, both from India, took me to this place. I'm already on record as not liking cilantro, coriander, or cumin, so in the past Indian food has not be kind to me. But I'm game, so I went. We were there for lunch and the owner came over and shook the hand of one of the gentlemen I went... More

I will say I was a little apprehensive going to have Indian food but this place exceeded my expectations by a long ways. Staff was extremely good knowledgeable and attentive to her needs. I strongly recommend this location and restaurant. I had the tikka masala and it was amazing. Very handy to the DoubleTree hotel in Lexington.

I eat at Taj at least once per week. On the lunch buffet there is always a variety of dishes from bland to spicy. If you have a question about the spice level in dishes, just ask any member of the staff. They are all very friendly. The lunch buffet desserts always include jalebi and homemade Indian coconut ice cream... More

They have the best dishes for dinner. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Always accommodating and the food is always as order. Staff even encourage this regular to try something different. Doesn't disapoint.

It's been a few years since I have been here for lunch, and this time it was not up to the quality of previous visits. The curried goat was mostly bones and gristle, the naan bread was flaky and underbaked and the rice pudding was very watery. Prices are a little higher, but still reasonable. There are enough choices that... More

We had the fathers day buffet. All the food was nice and the price was reasonable. It wasn't very spicy for an Indian - there wasn't a spicy choice. I will also never understand the goat curry. After living in the uk and never ever seeing it - i have tried it here - but don't like it and can't... More
