Unfortunately, since my last excellent review of the Taj, I have to comment on changes that have been made there. Their location in Mini City has since closed and this has resulted in the owner's wife now "managing" the front of the house. Sadly, she is the reason we quit going to the other location, and we were overjoyed when... More

The curry chicken here has turned into my favorite dish of all time. The perfect combination of flavor and heat. I don't mind that the decor is dated. If that bothers you get take-out. Service is fine, but it is never crowded. It is on the expensive side, but typical for Indian food.

I took one of my Indian Loan Officers over here for lunch the other day (actually, he loves this place too and he picked up the check....but I digress). The buffet is a slam dunk on quality. The price is very reasonable too. The ambiance may be a bit lacking on the way in, but they make up for it... More

We ate again at the N Raleigh location, next to Raleighwood, last night. Absolutely superb! I had my usual fish (salmon) curry and my wife had the lamb dopiaza. Together with a fresh garlic naan, a free glass of wine for Fathers Day, and free papads, this restaurant cannot be beaten for its authentic Indian cuisine. It is the best... More

Found this place by accident. The ambiance was welcoming if not very dark. The food was barely warm. Although to be fair we were the first customers for dinner. The food was adequate, although the chicken was dry. The best part was the garlic naan and the keer desert. However, that was eclipsed by the overpricing: $36.00 for two buffett... More

Had dinner here while in Raleigh. Location and decor were nothing to write home about, but the food was delicious and spicy. The samosas were wonderful, though the pakora were less than stellar. The matar paneer and chicken tikka were very flavorful. Will likely go back.

It's in a terrible strip mall, that leaves everything to be desired. Once inside, the decor is blah. But the food is brilliant. I've had the buffet, but I like ordering from the menu. My favorite is the Mattar Paneer and Cheese Naan (filled with blue cheese). The chicken Tikka Masala is very good too. We've had quite a few... More

My family and I recently moved to North Raleigh from Cary. Having come from a location with such amazing Indian cuisine, we were skeptical about the findings in our new area. We tried Taj Mahal on a whim and were satisfied by our choice. It isn't the best Indian restaurant in the area, but it was absolutely delicious and abated... More

I am very picky about Indian food so I was so pleased that Raleigh has a restaurant that has three of my favorite dishes, meat samosa, puri and lamb vindaloo. When you have not eaten in a restaurant you are hesitant to ask for your vindaloo hot so I chickened out and asked for medium. I could have eaten it... More

Great Friday evening buffet! Changes somewhat week to week. Begins at 5:30 and is probably the best Indian in the North Raleigh area. Chicken dishes are very good. Great staff and not too crowded, YET. It is located back in corner of a strip shopping center near Food Lion on North Capital Blvd. Much better than the other local Indian... More
