We love the food and service at Blue Taj and eat there often. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte. Chili chicken is our go to appetizer- so good!

I wish the restaurant would have toned down arrogance just because it is running well and busy.

Blue Taj remains one of the best Indian restaurants in Charlotte. Tonight we started with the fried chili chicken which had the perfect amount of heat and was very tasty. The tomato bisque was creamy and very well seasoned with the southern Indian spices. Excellent. Our mains were the classic chicken tikka masala and the lamb Vin d'Alho. Both were great although the curry flavor was a little light in the lamb. The garlic naan was perfect. Great to be back to Blue Taj.

This is such a great experience of taste and smells. The use of spices to enhance the food flavors is amazing. The food can be mild to spicy and allows you to try new foods.

The Blue Tj allows to you move out of your comfort zone. Give it a try.

Delicious meal. Just couldn’t ask for better foot. We sat in a weird place by a wall kind of in the corner but the chicken tikkka was worth it all, and the Nan. The spice level was too high for low spice but we sent it back and got NO spice which was better for my dining partner. I got a 4 spice and could have gone hotter. The flavors were smashing and like a blossom of delight in each bite. We had the Nan instead of the rice. Just delightful. Thank you!

My friend and I love Indian Food and forget how good Blue Taj is but we won't forget from now on. We will be going back. We shared the Curie Fish Stew and the Sag Peneer. They were both delicious. Of course, we had the garlic nan which was thin, crispy and tasty.

The experience at The Blue Taj was not great. Yes the food came out quickly and was good, but the service here was poor. As an African American woman I felt as I do at most of the restaurant in the Ballantyne area, awkward and ignored. I won't be back, but I may door dash to get the chilli chicken.
