I hadn’t dined here in a few years, but loved the food from that time. However, I invited a work team to dinner here recently and experienced less than mediocre food, the server couldn’t recommend any favorites and one of our meals wasn’t the right dish we’d ordered. When we brought it to our servers attention she simply shrugged her shoulders. We didn’t reorder in the interest of time, but this is not at all how I recall previous meals.

Food it's Excellent as well the Service . Love the place and
something very important they are NOT in the list of
the Restaurants week. We do not like Restaurant week at all.
Restaurant week is for people that never goes out and when
they do they reviews are horrible because they do not know
how to eat .

Nan is too thick like a hamburger buns.
Bhindi masala was horrible. Okra was not at all cut into pieces. Paneer was not cooked properly.

The food was perfect. Spice was right on point with our requests. Only slight issue was the servers not completely understanding english. Our dessert order was incorrect, but not a big issue and a request for an additional drink was not filled.
On the whole, though, these were not enough to prevent us from wanting to return.

The atmosphere was nice but the service was very slow with not a lot of people in the restaurant. We also asked for our food spicy and there was hardly any spice. The portions were also small for the price/typical amount given at Indian restaurants.

This was the first time we had visited the Blue Taj for their highly recommended Sunday brunch, and it certainly did not disappoint, the food was excellent and many choices on the buffet line. We will be back

Unusually high noise level and some dry chicken made for a less than ideal experience. We eat here at least once a month and love Blue Taj but this was a little disappointing

Always good food, but not as flavorful as usual. The rice portion has been reduced by half so not enough for two dishes. Our server was great and very attentive. It was a busy night and there seemed to be a lot of chair and table rearranging for large parties which was quite loud. And a bit distracting. The cauliflower appetizer was fantastic as was the new green peanut appetizer!

Great Friday night out on the patio with the heaters on. All the food and drinks we've had here are delicious and moderately priced. Servers are attentive and manager is accommodating. This is one of our favorite places to eat in the Charlotte area. Thank you, Blue Taj!

I took my daughters there to try some new types of Indian food. The waiter was fantastic and gave some great recommendations, all of which we really enjoyed. We sat on the heated patio and requested one of the heaters be turned down to low, which they did quickly. The price was great for a fun evening. Would recommend.
