A very nice east Indian resturant. The food was very tasty and lots to choices from meat to vegan. Naan was also included. The service was good and will return again

We love an Indian and this one was great. The place was very busy on the Sunday night we visited, but the service was quick and the food delicious. Great Garlic Naan and the Spinach Dal.

Let's face it. Eventually enough with the lobster rolls and fish sandwiches....give me a break - just a short break! If you are in Portland, as we are every summer, and that mood hits, just truck on over to Taj. They offer really outstanding Indian...More

The dining room is light and bright and attractive and the lunch buffet very tasty! Clean flavors and a nice variety of dishes. Several kinds of rice, veggie fare, and some rich butter chicken, a vindaloo, and, of course, pieces of tandoori chicken, plus two...More
