Great food. Under construction but still a great experience.
This visit was amazing! The staff actually took time to talk to us about items on the menu and they really seemed to enjoy doing that. The food was wonderful!
Consistently good food and service....our favorite spot for authentic Indian food!
Love that place and the food and staff are incredible
Good Indian experience. Enjoyed the night with friends.
Food was fabulous, service was great as always.
Loud, somewhat haphazardly run restaurant. The entrance to the restaurant at the hostess station has no seating and is very cramped. However, the food is amazing. So keep that in mind when you plan to eat here.
We love the Blue Taj! Authentic food with such a fun atmosphere.
Food was great. Overall experience was good. It was a little cramped and they were busy because of Valentines day. Service was good.
Always wonderful food and service. Never disappointed here.
Outstanding food! We had Chicken Tikka Masala. Service was a little slow, but it was Valentine's Day, so not unexpected.
We visited for the second time on Valentine's day. We were seated at the time of our reservation, and promptly received service asking for our beverage order. The ambiance was nice. We ordered an appetizer, samosas, and they arrived in good time, and were delicious. We ordered our entrees, Chicken Tikki Marsala and the Chicken Methi Curry, and they were both delicious. The service was excellent. We did not feel rushed, and we received each item we ordered in a reasonable amount of time.
We loved our food and experience the first time so came back for a second time. Our waiter was not as good as far as communicating regarding what to try, etc and we had to ask for the previous last. Communication is very important. Thank you! Really loved our food.
Excellent service and cuisine
Always great food and friendly service
Blue Taj is my favorite restaurant in Charlotte and the following is why. Arrived to a warm greeting and was seated immediately. Our server was friendly and efficient. I ordered the Lamb Saag and my companion ordered Chicken Korma. Both entrees were delicious and perfectly spiced. Our Cauliflower appetizer stole the show though. It was delicious. Our server recommended it and it was a hit. We will definitely be ordering it again. We can wait to return to this jewel in Charlotte’s crown.
Wonderful food and service! We didn’t have an extensive knowledge of the menu but our waiter was wonderful and patient to recommend items on the menu and make recommendations for us! All the dishes we had were wonderful!! We will be back!
I am a regular. Reliable, outstanding food. Good value. Superb service. We love this restaurant. Their footprint is a little cramped which leads to nearby table noise, but the owners have little control over that I would guess.
Always so very good - attentive service and amazing food. It can feel a little cold (temperature wise), but nothing to distract.
Went for lunch buffet. Lots of variety and everything was good. There naans were great and gulab jamun was also good.
We went for an early New Year’s eve dinner. We were seated promptly & waitress arrived within a few minutes to take our order. Everything was delicious! My husband ordered scallops in a tiki masala sauce (#4 spice level). I had the Kolmino patio with shrimp, Tamarind-Jaggery glaze. & ginger (#2 spice level). We also ordered the garlic naan, which is a must. Although they were very busy, we had excellent service & a delightful meal....
Fantastic Christmas lunch. Started with two delicious salads: traditional and a cucumber-tomato with flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Ordered the garlic naan - a must-have. I ordered chicken masala my husband a spinach-lamb dish. BOTH are out of this world. We can’t wait to return for both a regular meal and the Sunday buffet ! Thank you also to the wonderful servers who made it a perfect holiday experience.
Lovely food and good service! Will definitely visit again!
It is our favorite spot to have a delicious meal and quiet conversation.
Consistently solid. Good food, friendly service, nice atmosphere. You should try it if you haven’t and return if you have!
Very interesting menu, and maybe we ordered wrong, but it was quite bland for Indian food. The quality is very good, but just really lacking any flavor—We ordered a shrimp appetizer, the potato chickpea patties, the lamb Biryani and the chicken kebab blue Taj special. The best part of the entire meal was the grilled green beans served with the chicken—very non-Indian. Also, the service was bad. Our wait staff was very friendly, but the appetizers arrived before our drinks, and the main meal came before we were done with the appetizers. It felt like they really wanted us to get out of there.
The Blue Taj has some of the best Indian cuisine in the Charlotte area. Always a treat.
Our favorite restaurant in CLT for Indian cuisine. We keep returning. Naan and Chechen tiki masala are wonderful.
Our favorite place!
The food is always excellent, best ever! The noise level was deafening, we could not carry a simple conversation, the table next to us was so loud and the restaurant acoustics in the section we were sat were very poor. We usually sit outside when we visit, this time we sat in the far narrow section that is against the back wall and near the kitchen, never sitting there again. We did ask to move, they were so busy, nothing was available. Management was good about things and our service was also great.
We have dined at Blue Taj many times over the years, but this was our first visit with our whole family for Sunday buffet. It exceeded our expectations! The food was delicious, hot, and had a good variety for both meat and nonmeat eaters, as well as varying spice levels. The staff was attentive and friendly, and we never had to wait for more naan or water refills. The restaurant is unique and beautiful, and I would highly recommend trying their buffet! We will be back.
Our favorite Indian restaurant. Food very good as usual. Some vegetables with the tandoori chicken would have been appreciated. Service was prompt, a little too prompt at the end of the meal. Server brought boxes for leftovers before my wife had finished her dinner.
Service and food was amazing, will go back very soon
Service has declined since we were last there. Probably won't go back soon.
Love everything about Blue Taj!
Addictively delicious. The garlic naan never disappoints
Wonderful restaurant. Great food with a friendly and professional staff.
Dinner with a friend to relive an evening in London! Had tickets to see Downton Abbey and was running late. Placed order over the phone and food was delivered to the table within a minute or two after seating! Highly impressive!!
Will definitely be back!!
Each time I go to this restaurant I am not sure if the food is better or the experience because both are amazing. The staff is sooo friendly, easy going, and fun. They are happy to have you put down your menu and just talk to them so they can help design a meal that is exactly what you are in the mood for. TAKE ADVANTAGE of that skill and customer service. This charm works for them for all age groups too. I first brought my daughter when she was 6 and she was so excited that the adults at the restaurant noticed her and valued her input that it was an immediate favorite. I am also a celiac so to have a place with so many options and people that are familiar with providing a gluten-free, non cross-contaminated meal - I am so grateful. Food & Flavor - WIN, Fun environment - WIN, Groups or family - WIN, Meal prices - WIN
