The food was tasty, but cold! We asked for it to be reheated, and it was still just lukewarm. Ambiance is beautiful, but it shouldn’t be a challenge to get food to the table at the right temperature.

Great food and attentive and knowledgeable staff. The best part was that it wasn’t noisy! It was busy but somehow we could hear each other without shouting. We asked for something not technically on the menu with no problem.

Good value Indian cuisine. This time I had the buffet, which was tasty, but I’d like a little more spice and some more options.

Too many servers helped us. I think the whole family waited on our table. Better if only one or two. There were at least 5.

We went to Taj of India for Valentine's day. It was very good. The food was excellent, the price was right, and the service was friendly. We ordered the appetizer platterand the choices were excellent. For our dinner we got the Thali and a curry chicken. Both were very good. They ask if you want the dishes spicy. We said medium and it could have been spicier. All in all it was a great evening and we will surely be back.

Very much enjoyed our first dinner at Taj of India. The service was excellent, the food very tasty and generous, and we also enjoyed the excellent and quite reasonable mixed drinks. The ambiance is nice, and it is possible to have good conversation as it was not too loud. We will be back!

Being an Indian we know what Indian food is !! This place is horrible, they are selling Indian food knockoffs for a heavy price. The oil felt old and stale, the paneer dish felt like something deceiving. The biryani was like pulao and the yoghurt was super smelly a sign of old curd. please don’t get cheated and eat there. There are so many more authentic places you can get the real experience from!! The food is mediocre and really not the Indian standards and probably will have health risks!

The food was wonderful. However, the staff seemed perplexed by someone actually having used Open Table for a reservation. It took a while to get that straightened out. Also, although the restaurant was basically empty with a lot of larger tables set for parties of 4, it would not accommodate our request (we were a party of 2) for one of the larger tables. A larger table would have come in handy given the number of plates and glasses employed in our dinner.

It was our first time dining at Taj of India, our group truly enjoyed the food. We were able to sit outside on Saturday evening and watch the sunset, it was a great date night. I strongly recommend you make a reservation, as they were very busy and I was grateful that we had the foresight to make a refreshment.

While the food was enjoyable, I had to wait one and a half hours for my food. The people sitting by us arrived 10 minutes after us got served 20 minutes before us. After this occurred we complained and after the manager came over to our table and told us we were wrong and everyone arrived at the same time. The service was awful and I would not recommend.

Not real Indian food. Flavorless, tasteless, not well cooked. I got raw shrimps, be very careful if you are planning to eat there. They do not have flat bottled water. Do not recommend this crappy food.

The Buffet was Cold. Three diferente chicken dishes. A Biriyani that tasted very bland. The waitress was not very nice and did not want to serve chai tea after lunch because the kitchen was closed at three pm. We were there since 1:45pm. But was serving lunch to an indian couple after 3:00pm. A bit shocking!!

Taj of India is conveniently located in Georgetown and has a pleasant atmosphere. Surprised as to the last minute availability on a Friday night. If you’re a fan of Indian food, the menu is quite expansive with seeming lots of good choices. If you have a limited taste for this type of food, you can generally find something to enjoy.

Our favorite Indian restaurants were all closed for the holiday so we came here almost under duress and I must say it was very delicious. My husband wolfed down his butter chicken which was very much to his taste. If you like really spicy Indian food this might not be your cup of tea but many times my husband can’t enjoy because his spicy hoy threshold is pretty low. So this was a very welcomed change. The Naan was perfect, a bit charred in the bottom, which I like but buttery and not too crispy. I actually took my food home and it was even better. Very happy! The pace was packed. My only complain was that I was seated with my head literally behind the bar counter and every time they handled the glasses that were behind me it was very startling. Will definitely come back next time we are in DC.

Food and service were excellent. Soup and entree were perfect. The garden salad was disappointing- iceberg lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes only
