My wife is a vegan, so I try to leave her home at lunch time. (Only kidding). We went at lunch time and had the buffet. My wife ordered an ice tea but they only had milk tea, so we both had water. The lunch buffet consisted of about 8 different dishes. Nothing was bad but to me nothing was... More

Can't say that Indian has ever been my choice when dining out in New Orleans. But I ended up at Taj Mahal one evening. All of the dishes we had were flavorful and nicely done. Service friendly. Good for a change of pace.

This is one of our go-to places near where we live. We love the lunch buffet. There is usually a nice selection of vegetarian and chicken choices, including tandoori. Always some kind of soup and that hot and fluffy naan bread. There are also pakoras, those hot and crunchy little appetizers! We've had different ones on various days, but they... More

The exterior of the restaurant probably chases away some people but they don't know what they are missing. Good food with an excellent spice level and friendly knowledgeable wait staff. Just wish we were closer as I really want to make this a regular visit!!!!

In a place with not so many Indian restaurants, it stands out. The food is pretty good. The ambiance isn't all that great though.

I've been to a lot of Indian restaurants in US and a limited redundant menu is a disappointment. Taj Mahalo offers really tasty Indian food and the ambiance is calming and very well decorated. We were able to relish each bite of our food. There's a lot of variety on the menu. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting... More

We'd been before, and I picked it for my birthday meal. We arrived at 1:30 for the buffet, which they said ended at 2:30. From what we ate, I think it ended at 12:30. No new food came out, and only bland, dry scrapings were left. We are switching to Nirvana. I'd rate it between poor and average. I am... More

After the nutcracker ballet my family and I went to Taj Mahal for dinner we arrived at 10:00pm they said that they were closed even though the sign and other notices said that they closed at 10:30pm. If they plan to close at 10:00pm they should change their advertised time. We were very disappointed, had we know we would have... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
