We have only been to Blue Taj once for lunch but loved it. The food is excellent, though a little pricey. This is not an Indian buffet joint. The setting is elegant as is the service. We will go back.

In a weeknight we went without a reservation and we were seated quickly. I asked a few questions about the menu items and the waiter was very helpful

We love Indian food. The food was very well prepared. The staff could be a bit friendlier, but the food is most important. Our kids love the lamb korma.

I've never had Indian food before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The server was very nice and explained the dishes and spiciness level of everything. He was a little hard to understand but we figured it out. I ordered one of the lunch chicken dishes he suggested and it was pretty good with the rice and nan bread.... More

We visited around the Christmas holidays so the restaurant was a bit full/ service not quite as welcoming. That aside the food was extremely delectable! We tried the prawn starter which was a TINY portion but delicious (may not be worth it). Main dishes were all finger-licking good as well (lamb with "tikka" sauce, fish curry and another lamb dish--can't... More

Service is good but the best thing about The Blue Taj is the food. We always get the chicken tiki masala or chicken korma. Both are absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this place!

We reached the restaurant at 1.30pm for lunch. Were seated in a poorly illuminated area although majority of the tables were unoccupied. While we awaited our friends arrival, we were informed that the kitchen closes at 2pm. As soon as our friends arrived, we hastily ordered Goat curry, Prawn Ambotik, Leek kofta, and a vegetarian platter. We were repeatedly reminded... More

Drove 1.5 hrs to come up to Charlotte to have dinner. We decided on Blue Taj. Warning it is a good idea to make reservations as there could be a long wait to be seated. Everything was amazing. From appetizers to after dinner chai. All spices were blended and cooked to where the taste was just amazing. We had 3... More
