I travel the world for a living, and I try a lot of Indian restaurants, this one is the best so far. It definitely does not have high footfall, amazing decor, nor does it look world class from the outside.... but the authentic Indian food here is absolutely second to none. The food is very tasty and the passion of... More

I used to be to eat there often now only get to when we come home for football games. Also order ahead and Harrish has all our favorites ready to put in a cooler so we can take home!!!! and prolong the enjoyment. Haven't found an Indian restaurant in Iowa that can match!!!!

Went to Taj Mahal last night for our evening meal. The couple that came with us were from New Zealand and had extensive experience with Indian food. The restaurant is clean and nicely appointed. The owner/cook gave us a warm welcome and despite the fact that he was running the place by himself he attended us expertly. We had naan... More

This was a delicious lunch and BEST of all was meeting the couple who own this restaurant. Authentic Indian food made with love and care! Highly recommend the Taj Mahal of Lincoln NE.

I'll be honest; most people scoff when I say this is the best Indian food available. First, it's a bit of a hole-in-the-wall, in an out-of-the-way strip mall. Second, the ambiance isn't for everyone; if you like busy, noisy atmosphere, look elsewhere, because often you will be one of only two or three other tables. (This is because they do... More

We were there on a Friday night. A busy night for Lincoln's restaurants. We were the only table there. How fresh can the food be when there is no turn over? I had a vegetarian dish. The broccoli was gray. My friend had a mixed seafood plate and he worried about the quality of the ingredients. I think there was... More

I am an out of town traveler. But always make a point to eat here! The chef always greets you and his clay tandoori oven is top notch!

The service and food are both of a high quality. The owner, Harish, is very personable and came out to discuss the menu with us after I had ordered a vegan dish. They have a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes. The food is very tasty and varying in "heat" depending upon what you buy. The bread is delicious... More

Never been to an Indian Restaurant that did not serve Basmaiit Rice. What ever the food was like, it was ruined by the cheap rice.

We were regulars at the Taj before we left Lincoln. We've found it tough to find a comparable Indian cuisine restaurant in Oklahoma. Harish and Cindy do a wonderful job with both service and their food. They make you feel at home and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend you visit this restaurant when in Lincoln, you won't be... More
