Description: 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!

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.

When part of the family is sickened the healthy are hungry for great Thai food, what to do? Call UberEats. We did not go to the restaurant so cannot comment on ambiance or, service but with speedy delivery directly to our door we can rate the food as excellent. Sushi is fresh and perfectly seasoned. Curry can be as spicy as desired featuring one's protein of choice. The honey duck is simply amazing, and the greens are a perfect accompaniment. While we look forward to visit in person, on this occasion the home delivery option was exactly what the doctor ordered.

This was our third time eating at Taj Mahal. Each time we go to Boise, we make a beeline to Taj Mahal and each time, it’s delicious. This most recent trip, we ordered the potato pea appetizer, garlic naan, lamb biryani, madras chicken curry, and a bottle of mango lassi to share. Yummy!

After being on overseas travel for long, it was great to notice this Indian restaurant. Its a small restaurant with nice set up. We had ordered different type of Indian cuisines which we normally eat back home in India. To our surprise, all the dishes that were served had pretty much the same yellow coloured gravy with white kind of pieces of Chicken dumped into each!! Pretty much all the dishes looked similar and also tasted similar. May be they do so considering western taste buds hence I don't blame them for this.
All I want to share here is do not visit them if you expect an Indian taste since they are far from being termed an Indian restaurant.

Had dinner at Taj Mahal two weeks ago while passing through Boise. The food initially tasted good, but beware that it can make you really sick. Chef most likely uses artificial flavors and fake spices. Became unwell the following day. Still recovering.
