A word from Taj Mahal
Family style, made from scratch Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The Best in Boise and the Northwest. Everything is prepared by one chef. 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 anywhere else. 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! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "There were only 2 others in the restaurant when my friends and I were seated. 15 minutes later, still no waitress. Finally ordered appetizer tray.Appetizer arrived, extremely overcooked, Asked waitress for plates and some chutneys, etc.. 10 minutes later, still no plates. Asked again. Another 5 minutes, nothing. I personally went to the buffet area and got the plates. Waitress was standing there texting. Told her I was not pleased at all. Only response, "sorry". If I didn't have guests, I would have left immediately without paying. She returned to ask about entree orders. Really wasn't too helpful in explaining anything. We guessed, and the food that did arrive was quite tasty. Not the heat level we ordered. Got mild wanted HOT,"

  • "On the recommendations of some locals, we went to Taj Majal in Boise and were very glad that we did. The host and wait-staff were wonderful, kind, and helpful. The food they recommended was impeccable, and the entire dinner was delicious. My local friends were delighted to hear that I shared their enthusiasm for Taj Majal, and we will all be back soon."

  • "This is a great little restaurant. The owner is a funny and friendly guy, the food is fantastic, and the ambience of the restaurant is pleasant and authentic. My only minor complaint is the service was a tad slow when it came to filling our water glasses but this was a minor issue. Overall, I'd highly recommend this restaurant and if you like ethnic food you can't go wrong with the Taj Mahal."

  • "The food at this restaurant exceeded our expectations. We have always walked by it and wanted to try it and now we are kicking ourselves for not going there earlier. The dishes we ordered were delicious. We will be back again very soon."

  • "As this was our first Indian restaurant in Boise we had high expectations. We booked at the Taj Mahal because they were offering 1000 Open Table points. Upon arrival the restaurant was empty except for one table. They sat us right next to the TV which was loud due to the fact that the one table in the restaurant was watching it. We asked to be moved which they accommodated, however, the TV was loud in general and distracting The food was OK. The Tikka Masala was bland and spice less. I'm accustom to it being spicy but it wasn't even mild it was bland. Not sure we'll try this place out again unless I hear things have changed."

  • "I couldn't wait to get back to try something new. Our Samosas were perfectly done. Truly beautiful and delicious. The sauces were enjoyable too. I don't remember the name of our main dish but it was really good. The dishes of the other guests looked and smelled fantastic!"

  • "Visited for the first time on 10-14-13 for my birthday dinner. We a party of 6. There were only a few other guests in the restaurant. The waitress was horrible. Since nobody had ever been there we had some questions about the food and she wasnt the least bit interested in answering them. The online menu prices are completely different the the menus we were given. The menus we were given were a $4-$5 price increase than online. No joke it took 1 1/2 hours to get our food! After about 45 minutes of waiting we started asking what was taking so long. Our waitress just kept saying it was coming. FINALLY our food came and only then did the owner came over and explained they had alot of to-go orders. That's all of an apology we were given."
