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.

Blu Taj has never disappointed us! We go there regularly and being relatively new to Indian cuisine, we typically choose the same menu items. The food is consistently delicious and the service is always top notch! We always have enough food for leftovers, so portions are generous. There is a bit of construction going on at their entrance right now, but it didn’t effect our dining experience. I highly recommend going there.

Loud, somewhat haphazardly run restaurant. The entrance to the restaurant at the hostess station has no seating and is very cramped. However, the food is amazing. So keep that in mind when you plan to eat here.
