Courtesy Smertesy. The food is the thing..
Found this place about two years ago. Everything I've had at the Taj Palace is far superior than any Indian restaurant I've ever frequented. Scallop and Shrimp app. and Tandoori app. are perfect starters. The Malai Kafta, Shrimp Dansik and Chicken Tikka Masala are stand outs. Want it hot? Ask. Haven't had a bad dish yet. As far as courtesy, they are very pleasant. Me, being a somewhat miserable individual, consider this high praise. Sure, in the beginning no one smiled, including me. They smile at me now and sometimes I even smile back. They're very serious. Even if they didn't smile, I'd still go back. Truly spectacular cuisine. And the decor is original 1983, when they opened. Retro reality. Even Gandhi smiles down on you at the little table to the side. All others pale in comparison. Love it, love it, luh-uh-uv it. See you there. I'll have the black carnation in my lapel, not smiling, eating.
Great food and service.
We moved from England last summer and were looking for a good Indian restaurant. We found Taj Palace from the directory. What a find! We thought the food was as good as we get in England. Their Chicken Tikka Masala was the best we tasted so far! The breads were awesome. We going to invite our friends for a party at the Taj.
Avoid going to this restaurant. I am shocked Zagat gave this place a good rating..
The decor is okay. Food is lousy, I went for lunch on 11/10/07 with my wife and three American friends.The manager/owner and the server lacked courtesy - typical of any Malayali hotelier/business owner. The person on the other end hung up the phone when I made a followup call in the evening yesterday.
