Stopped for a quick lunch while shopping, we had a wonderful meal. We love Mexican, but really enjoyed the change of pace. Good food, reasonable prices

This is the worst Indian restaurant I have ever visited. I love Indian food, so was very disappointed. The food was bland and over-priced. My curry lacked any kind of herbs or spices and the meat was over-cooked. The food was also served suspiciously quickly, so I suspect it was microwaved.

I love and crave Indian food, have lived in India, and eaten from the highest to the lowest- this was utterly amazingly bad. I ordered lamb rogan josh and couldn't figure out what it was, seriously. I also had to order rice which was about 2 table-spoons full. There was no spice at all! no raita or chutneys of any... More

Unfortunately even main dishes were the size of side dishes and after ordering what should have been plenty we went home hungry and a bit disappointed. And this is not a cheap place at all. The taste was average at best. The waitresses were very sweet, which is the only reason I scored three and not two. Come one guys,... More

We are vegetarians, and often Indian food is a good option for us. Mini Tag had a great vegetarian selection. The owner is from India and for the two times we were there, he was also the waiter, cook, and bottle washer. So if you're not in a hurry, but want your food prepared fresh from scratch, this is your... More

And I haven't eaten in one south of the equator, so that pretty much tells you there. Best Palak Paneer, dal and hand made nan. If you are tired of tacos and tlayudas, this is the spot.

After being in Oaxaca for a week, and having had fabulous Oaxacan cooking, we came upon the Mini Taj Cocina India. I am an American who was married to a Sikh for 20 years. I craved Indian food, and this little simple restaurant filled my desire for delicious Indian food. My favorite is Saag Panir, and the one here was... More

I've been to Mini Taj 3 times and have had good and bad experiences. It's hard to be picky when its one of the only Indian places in Oaxaca City but the last time we went there, the food was pre-prepared and then microwaved and served (I know this because of the time it cook and the lack of noise...

I won't lie. I'm a huge fan of Indian food and am very picky about where I go to get it. Obviously, living in Oaxaca there aren't a lot of options so I was delighted when this place opened and was happy to go. I'm so glad I did. While the portions are small (and the naan/rice isn't included in... More
