One of Lexington's gems! My wife and I come here at least twice a week, and absolutely love this place. The lunch buffet is awesome, and VERY reasonably priced ($8.50). The family who owns Taj India are genuinely nice, caring folks who always provide excellent service. Dinner here is always fresh and flavorful. If you want to dine local, yet... More

We come here about once a month and almost every Christmas eve. This is one of our favorite places to eat. Buffet is great, stuff is friendly and the coconut ice cream is possibly my wife's favorite thing in the world.

This restaurant serves excellent Indian food by any standard that I have experienced. The owner and staff are really friendly, courteous and helpful. I thoroughly recommend it anyone who wants...

I'm looking for good Indian food in Lexington. This is not the place. My naan was burnt and the chicken saag was good but not great. I won't be returning, will keep looking.

My co-workers, both from India, took me to this place. I'm already on record as not liking cilantro, coriander, or cumin, so in the past Indian food has not be kind to me. But I'm game, so I went. We were there for lunch and the owner came over and shook the hand of one of the gentlemen I went... More

I will say I was a little apprehensive going to have Indian food but this place exceeded my expectations by a long ways. Staff was extremely good knowledgeable and attentive to her needs. I strongly recommend this location and restaurant. I had the tikka masala and it was amazing. Very handy to the DoubleTree hotel in Lexington.

I eat at Taj at least once per week. On the lunch buffet there is always a variety of dishes from bland to spicy. If you have a question about the spice level in dishes, just ask any member of the staff. They are all very friendly. The lunch buffet desserts always include jalebi and homemade Indian coconut ice cream... More
