Taj Palace has long been Austin's favorite dining experience. Owners Ajay and his wife Kiran, were both raised and educated in the art of Indian cooking and hospitality in New Delhi, India. Opening Taj Palace in 1990, the couple gave many Austinites their first taste of intriguing tastes of India. The public responded with numerous awards for Best Indian and Best Buffet in the Austin Chronicle's well-respected "Best of Austin" awards, year after year.

Worst food. Slow service. Not value for money. Didn't have a good experience. I am sorry it was harsh but that's what I felt.

The simosas were served cold...second time they brought them out, still cold internally. No one in this place smiled or made eye contact. The gentleman up front was the worst. Didn’t acknowledge me. Won’t be going back.

Great experience. Walking through the door, I felt at home in a North Indian-themed restaurant. The ambiance and music was pleasant; the place wasn't crowded so it was pretty quiet. The service was instant, consistent, and respectful. I didn't feel rushed to order/eat, but was attended to enough where I felt like I was being taken care of. In terms of food, the restaurant served all the usual North Indian food that can be found in Austin. I feel like the chaat appetizers were excellent (right amount of spice, entrees weren't too fried, and flavors were balanced). The main entrees were also excellent, but could've been a bit spicier. Overall, the curries and chaat we ordered balanced each other out very well, the service was pleasant and complementary to the food, and the ambiance made me feel comfortable eating in Taj Palace. I would definitely come again.

I've eaten here several times and liked it so I returned for their buffet. This time, my friend and I really enjoyed the food but we felt awfully sick after dinner. Maybe we both just overate. Or it might be that something was off.

Great food. I missed the chicken tikka masala which was an item in the previous buffets I've had at Taj Palace.

We had a mix of dishes, from naan basket to lamb, eggplant, shrimp, kulfi. They have delectable sauces. The services was very good and we will return! :>)

I was there for dinner and the food was excellent and the service first rate! They were happy to go customize my dinner around my nut allergy which was very much appreciated!

Great reasonably priced buffet with classic options, and things I haven't tried before. Samosas were perfect, and the service was great - not too much, not too little. Would definitely return and would recommend.
