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.

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.

It was very busy as it was a Friday night. Our table was VERY close to our neighbors on both sides making it nearly impossible to have a conservation that didn’t include everyone.

One thing that rubbed time the wrong way is... we were having a wonderful time chatting catching up with dear friend and we lost track of time... instead of coming be and telling us “hey guys we are closing@, they just pulled the switch on lights and it was loud like “show is over, get out”... seriously? Ugh left a little bitter taste.
