Always a Favorite. Lunch or Dinner
Always a pleasure! Great staff with prompt service. The buffet on Sunday is a great way to try different flavors if you are new to the cuisine. Morvin is a great waiter that takes care of every need. Whether it be lunch or dinner, you won't go wrong with the Blue Taj.

By far, this is the BEST Indian
By far, this is the BEST Indian restaurant in Charlotte! Ask any locals & they will say the same thing. Absolutely the very BEST! Excellent food, great service, and gorgeous atmosphere!

Awesome food but the past
Awesome food but the past few times we have visited the service has been poor. We went there for lunch and it took ages to get the check when we were ready to leave. Wait staff could use some improvement.

VERY Pricy but good...
I went for lunch during the week and ordered from the dinner menu as it offered more variety than the lunch menu did. The down side to that was that I spend about $70.00 (b4/tip)! The food was very good, but a little pricy. I would like to see them revamp the menu just a little to include more descriptions for first timers such as myself and also consider placing servers according to the experience of the dining party. The service was okay, but may have been better if our server spoke english and was able to explain the dishes on the menu. He got someone to assist with our table and that person was able to suggest items for us to try. The bad part about this is that these items were not on the menu so we didn't know the prices in advance.

Excellent food. Very helpful
Excellent food. Very helpful waiter. However the waiting was too long. Nearly an hour after appetizers before the entrees.

Great Indian Food
We sat outside on the patio. I love it out there. The food is consistently good and delicious. The service is attentive and professional. I am a regular diner here and will be back again soon.

Always a favorite.
Before Blue Taj, I was not particularly a fan of Indian food. Now I find that I frequently drive the 30 minutes from my house for Blue Taj. It's my absolute favorite restaurant and I just can't get enough! Great food and atmosphere. Some of the seating is a little awkward - our table was in a tight corner - but we were still comfortable and, as expected, had another great meal!

Best place for Indian food close to home, we go there at least six times a year!

Great food, but they are relying
Great food, but they are relying on an auxiliary conditioning that pumps in air through an open door because the regular air conditioning unit is not working. That in turn allows bugs in the restaurant, which doesn't make for the best eating ambience if you don't care to eat al fresco.

Taste of India
My friend and I ate outside. The food is consistently delicious. Our server was professional, friendly and efficient. The Blue Taj never disappoints.

One of our favorites. Always great. The food is outstanding.

Our waiter was a little busy and there were too many kids there (not really a kid-friendly place) but it doesn't matter because it is the BEST Indian food I have eaten literally on this continent.

Great food but noisy
We are regulars at Blue Taj, eating there every month or so. The food is exceptional. This is not your Indian buffet. Taj features foods from different areas and cultures, allowing you to select from vegetarian, great lamb and goat, seafood, etc. food can be as spicy or mild as you want. I would like the waitstaff to explain more about the regional/ethnic origins of the different dishes. My only complaint was the noise level. This was the first instance where we have had this problem. We were seated next to a large group who was loudly playing a game at there table. It made it very hard to hear.

Awesome, Friendly Staff
The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have the best experience possible. They are super friendly. I can't say enough about the food - it's some of the best Indian cuisine in North Carolina!

Great Authentic Indian
Really enjoy this place! They have a great selection of delicious Indian food. The Chicken Tikka Masala is my fav here. Also great Naan. Service is either really great or subpar; would appreciate more consistency - we never know which we'll get when we go! Also, it is sometimes very loud, acoustics in restaurant make things seem louder at certain tables.

Simply Awesome :)

We ate here for a special
We ate here for a special occasion and counted it immediately a good sign that we were one of the very few non-Indian's in the restaurant. Neither my husband nor I have much experience with Indian food, but we both enjoyed Blue Taj better than Situl and Cooper in the Myers Park and Dilworth areas. We sat outside and had a very nice dinner. I will say that the inside looked a little too "hip" for my tastes, so I may have felt different about the overall experience had we taken an inside table.

Saturday night delight
We went early and sat outside. The service and the food was outstanding. It is consistently above average. I had been there for lunch earlier in the week and couldn't wait to go back.

Celebrated our 23rd Anniversary here purposefully! Great friendly service, dynamite food and surprise slice of chocolate cake on the house for our celebration.

We eat here at least once a month. The food is consistently delicious and the service is attentive.

Good Indian food in south charlotte
I have been eating Indian food for over 30 years. Many Indians said this was one of the best places in Charlotte. The restaurant is hard to find in the Ballantyne shopping center. We ate early at 6 and the place was packed by 7. We got the two appetizer tastings which were good, but overpriced. We wanted to try something different than the typical chicken tikka masala. We tried a chicken with coconut curry which was spicy and excellent. we tried to order the puffy bread ( poori(, but got a fried nan instead. it tasted like a donut--not good. There was also a mishap with my cocktail, a version of the caprihina, which i had to return. The Indian beers are excellent

Excellent Food in a cool atmosphere
If you love Indian Food......you will love The Blu Taj! The Blu Taj has the best Indian food in town. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Busy spot -
We dined here again on a Saturday night. We had to push to be seated for our reservation as they were going to make us wait...it took 15 minutes to get water but after that everything was delish as usual. They took a percentage off our bill for the wait- which really was not necessary. Love this place.

Great food but overpriced only for special occasions
