out of all the indian restraunts in the northern NJ area, i find Taj to be the best. i love indian food and i think this place appeals to me more than others because all the ingredients are fresh and i always leave with a full belly! i am a vegetarion and there is a great selection of tasty dishes!

My friends liked this place but I was not impressed at all. The appetizers were stale and I was not blown away by my dinner. The food portions seemed kind of small too. I wouldn't go back.

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.

Pros: Great food. Inexpensive. Cordial. Retro feel. Great mood music.

Cons: Too far from my house to eat there every night.

It was my first time trying Indian food and the staff was very helpful when I was ordering. This unique little restaurant was an excellent choice and has become a favorite. Bring your own bottle of wine and it is a great dinner at an affordable price.

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.

I was impressed with the quality of the food here and it's become a favorite. I love the chicken sag -- buttery, flavorful comfort food. And the Chicken Makhani is the equal of Makhani's I've ordered at Indian restaurants around the world.

I thought the service was quite friendly too.

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.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The Malayali owner/manager and the server lack courtesy. Have to learn to smile.
