My husband and I really enjoy Indian food and eat at many restaurants. Taj is probably the best we have ever had. Atmosphere is great, service is wonderful and even the music is good! We will come back often!

I have been going to The Taj since 1991 and try to get there whenever visiting family in the Tampa area. They always deliver on delicious Indian food at fair prices and last night's dinner was as enjoyable as any we have had before (usually we come for the lunch buffet). My mother is vegetarian, my daughter loves her meat... More

They have a good selection of food for the price about 11 bucks very tasty, Ive eaten twice in past week. THE FOOD could be a little hotter it seamed just warm but was good enough that I went back. They have about three meat dishes and 4 or 5 veggie concoctions that are very good a couple different types... More

Could use a cust service refresher. Arrived at 5:15 after 5 pm opening. Only diners, could have used more enthusiasm and personality. But food is great! Best in area

Love the food here as always good quality and value. Service is so so and the bathroom looks like it's from the back streets of Bombay! Would recommend this restaurant as good quality Indian food. Not keen on the lunch time buffet but it seems to be the same at most Indian restaurants.

Not as many selections as had in Ohio, largely curry chicken and beef here, on buffet with the usual tandoor chicken. The dessert was best part of meal not sure what it is, but somewhat like a pudding with fruit, had to have seconds on, and the nan bread was excellent.

Me best experiences with Indian Cuisine have always been in people's homes, until now. Great menu, a staff that understands the cuisine and it was not overpowering at all. Loved it. Try the Butter Chicken but it was great food all around.

I went there today for lunch with my daughter. We have been going there for over 17 years. The restaurant was great. The food and service. There used to be these two servers who cared about the customers. The owner was always there making sure everything was up to par. I had gone a couple of times over the last... More

Visting from NYC we didn't have high expectations but the reviews were great and they weren't untrue - this was a delicious Indian restaurant that served authentic (from an American perspective) food. The complimentary appetizers are as tasty as you would expect, the Dal, Nahn, Lamb Curry - all fantastic. And service is wonderful. Just sorry that it's buried in... More

Visting from NYC we were a little skeptical about Indian cuisine in Tampa but have to say, this was one FANTASTIC meal. The apps were great, curry's even better. Dah and Nahn - oh my. Really really good. Only downside is that its buried in a Winn Dixie strip mall so many people won't even know it's there. if you're... More
