Many Indian restaurants tone down the spice for America palettes, but not here. The food is tasty and has the appropriate level of kick. Taj is good for either dinner or the lunch buffet although the lunch buffet could use a little more choice. Dining...More

Generally I wasn't impressed by the atmosphere, service, or appetizers. It's a strange, hard-to-describe restaurant. If you are a fan of chicken biryani though, they do it right.

Family style, made from scratch Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The Best in Boise and the Northwest. Everything is prepared by one chef. That chef happens to be my Mother You can expect an extensive beer selection with micro-brews, IPA"s, Porters, and international favorite. Over 40 to choose from at any given day. You can expect food made from scratch to your liking, and entree's you won't find at your typical curry in a can Indian Diner. Expect spices to be cooked right when you order them, an extensive Vegan and Vegetarian selection. Expect a good time at an amazing location in the heart of Downtown Boise with an owner operated business. We have a lunch buffet everyday that allows for a quick lunch. If you're coming in for dinner, we hope you're not in a rush, our beers and wines are here for you to relax because the cost of home-style food is a bit longer wait time. The freshness and flavors of our dinner are meant to be savored and explored. We look forward to your visit!
