Don't be deterred by the stairs and the area! Ok so I'm a fan of Indian food so buffets I find have the same dishes! Well did I luck out it was Wenseday and at the Taj that's vegetarian buffet evening (being a meat lover I was a bit of a skeptic). Well let me tell you they had 10... More

When I first walked into this restaurant I nearly turned around and headed back out to my car. It's not so much a restaurant as a 1970s Indian mancave: A windowless, low ceilinged, very tired and worn tight little place which looks like it hasn't been even painted since it opened in 1973. To get to the buffet from the... More

The service is a relaxed place but attentive; food is very good and consistent. I always want to try something different but the buffet is best for that. I really like the samosas and the sauces with it. There are house specialty dishes that are worth trying depending on if you are vegetarian or not. Made a point of coming... More

I went to this place on the 31st Night for the Buffet Dinner, and i must say i was appalled with the spread of food. There was butter chicken, mutton curry, tandori chicken, fish fry. The best was Fish fry & butter chicken. Tandori chicken was a little cold but with the number f people to be catered i didn't... More

Calgary is flooded with Indian restaurants, many in the NE where most of the South Asian immigrants live, but also all over town. Personally I think most of them are not very good. The Taj Mahal distinguishes itself by having superior quality food. Their location is not the best for visitors as it is not centrally located. To visit one... More

For the first time I tried the food at Taj Mahal on MacLeod Trail and was I surprised! The food was wonderfully spiced without the traditional 'heat' of Indian food I had been used to. Buffet style dining worked well for the 15 of us and there was plenty of hot, soft naan bread. The only thing that was really... More

Met with clients for a quick business lunch. Very good buffet selection with freshly baked naan bread. Great flavours and a variety of sauce / spices to choose from. Wonderful service from staff as well.

Not very good food.. I've been to many Indian restaurants and this one just wasn't very great. Especially for the price I would go elsewhere

I went here with my family while visiting in Calgary and was very, very impressed with it. I love the location and atmosphere of this restaurant. It has a beautiful mural on the outside and the inside as well! Lovely artwork throughout. The service was fantastic, very nice people. Not to mention, this is the cleanest restaurant I have been...
