One of our very favorite restaurants. The staff is so warm and friendly and they will gladly accommodate special requests to ease your way into the cuisine if you are new to Indian food. Very family friendly. Food is always excellent.

Group of 4 adults + baby on a Friday night. Made to feel very welcome. Great interaction with all the staff. Been to Blue Taj before, but I genuinely think the food has improved and it matched the best of the Indian restaurants I’ve eaten at.

Food was good - I had a spice level 4/5 but I would consider the spice level 2. Service was excellent knowledgeable and friendly and quick. Certainly one of the better Indian restaurants in the area. Will go again.

This was not our first visit. We like Indian food. I like food very spicy while my wife is the opposite. We were both satisfied. The Nan is served hot and is so very tasty. It is in a very good location and we did not have to wait long for our table. We had reservation. My wife liked the wne.

One of our favorite Indian restaurant's in the area. It's quaint & the tables are not too close. I don't feel I qualify to attest to how authentic it is - I have been to numerous Indian places & in my opinion this 1 is delicious. The spice level is served to order & even when very spicy is requested you still taste the spices, dish along with the heat. We have never been disappointed with a meal.

Outstanding and interesting Indian cuisine. This restaurant should be especially appealing to diners looking for dishes not offered by Indian restaurants in Charlotte. (The usual dishes are there as well.)

So consistent and so flavorful. Excellent wine menu. Stylish and contemporary, but not formal. This has to be the best Indian restaurant in Charlotte. Certainly the best I've had. The staff is always cordial and makes you feel welcome. I have never had a bad experience. I feel lucky to have this place in my neck of the woods but I would gladly drive across town.

If you've never tried Blue Taj, you are missing one of the true dining gems in all of Charlotte.

Found it because it was open on Thanksgiving Day.
(Note : they are below the movie theatre at the shopping center. If you drive toward the parking deck you should be able to find it. )
Northern Indian inspired food. Had mango lassi, the cauliflower appetizer, and a spicy lamb dish with roti on the side (spice level negotiable), mango pudding with pistachio topping for dessert with hot chai tea ( liked the spice mix - more cardamom than clove). Entrees were large portions. Everything was good, well made.
Only odd spot was the country music playing- I’d have been happier with sitar and tabla but I am guessing it’s a nod to their American customers.
