This is a favorite stop for lunch for all of our family. We often call in for to-go orders too! Authentic, delicious, affordable Indian food.

This is a family restaurant. The food is always worth waiting for. The service is very friendly but very slow. My husband and I know this now and feel the quality of the food is worth the wait. Amazing curry dishes that never disappoint. The owner is very charming and takes the time to talk with you.

I'll start out by saying that I LOVE Indian food, so I almost always try it in new cities. I ordered the buffet for lunch which did have several vegan items. They were good, but some were quite hot. I'm usually a "Mild-Plus" person, sometimes like it Medium. So having only a few vegan options and even fewer that weren't... More

Truly a tasty meal. I finally got my girlfriend to go eat Indian cuisine with me and she absolutely loved the flavor explosion! She ordered the mild and it was too spicy for her. They made a very mild version for her and though still very spicy for her taste she couldn't stop eating. Great atmosphere! Great service! I know... More

The lunch buffet and the menu items were great. Everything was fresh and very tasty. The restaurant is on the second floor so it is not as easy to find as the venues that open to the street, but it is well worth the search.

The food was great and they had one entire side of the menu dedicated to listing the vegan options that were available. They had all the standard dishes you would expect to see on an Indian food menu, they just went to the extent of labeling them as vegan, if they were. That was really helpful and the food was...

I just love this place. The owners are kind and likely to greet you at the door with hospitality. The high quality dishes keep me coming back. The samosas are flavorful and not greasy at all; I love the vegetarian choices and the buffet for lunch is an excellent example of all the flavors you can imagine. I think it's... More

Taj Mahal is a regular lunch spot for me. The food is authentic and very good. Some dishes are extra spicy and chef is often in the dining room greeting people and letting them know of the extra heat on some dishes. The buffet is great because you can select the dishes you like from a very extensive offering. There... More

If you like spicy, mushy food, come here. They do a great job preparing good dishes that are delicious.

Family style, made from scratch Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The Best in Boise and the Northwest. Everything is prepared by one chef. That chef happens to be my Mother You can expect an extensive beer selection with micro-brews, IPA"s, Porters, and international favorite. Over 40 to choose from at any given day. You can expect food made from scratch to your liking, and entree's you won't find at your typical curry in a can Indian Diner. Expect spices to be cooked right when you order them, an extensive Vegan and Vegetarian selection. Expect a good time at an amazing location in the heart of Downtown Boise with an owner operated business. We have a lunch buffet everyday that allows for a quick lunch. If you're coming in for dinner, we hope you're not in a rush, our beers and wines are here for you to relax because the cost of home-style food is a bit longer wait time. The freshness and flavors of our dinner are meant to be savored and explored. We look forward to your visit!
