What a pleasure to have such authentic Indian food in Chesterton. We had fish that was prepared perfectly. We also had one of the fish curry dishes, naan. Everything was really good. The place was packed and yet service was good. Atmosphere is really pleasant.

Small, clean and nice place with some authentic indian food. Price is standard. Don't let youself get fooled with the not-so-good-looking view from the street. Overall, great value!

After a long hiatus the Taj is back. Daily noon buffet of delicious variety of dishes from the Indian Sub-Continent. The weekend buffet costs a bit more but worth it as a pallet pleasing experience. The evening menu is pricey but good for a special...More
