Online reservations at The Café at Taj Boston can only be made directly on their website.
Attentive and friendly service - best part of the dining experience. Food was tasty but not outstanding. VERY small portions. Did not live up to expectations - - expected something special given the price.
Very disappointed. We loved the restaurant last year for Christmas dinner. This year was very different. Poor service with an arrogant server. Very slow. Food was mediocre. Will go somewhere else next year.
Everything was fine except for the service. Omg, we practically had to get down on our knees to beg for a water refill. Finally the people at the next table (in a different waitstaff zone) told their water-pourer that we needed some too, since they noticed we had been trying unsuccessfully to catch our waitstaff's attention for around 15 minutes. Note to self: next time come prepared with our own water bottles! (p.s. I checked off "good for romantic dinner" because you certainly don't have to worry about overly solicitous waitstaff interrupting anything!)
The service and food were excellent. Our server Michael was outstanding!
Amazing food and exceptional customer service experience!! I dine here frequently and I am never disappointed!
Our guest wanted a burger, which was not on the menu, but it was not a problem. It was also delicious. My husband and I like to go there because I can enjoy the Indian food while he has traditional favorites such as the clam chowder. It's a warm and pleasant environment, and it's easy to have a conversation as the noise level is low.
Service level has dropped here over the years. The waitstaff looks ancient, inattentive, and lazy. Food is always good, but mix the high prices with the poor service, and it does not seem worth it anymore.
Best eggs Benedict in town.
Lovely s always
The food was incredibly good, even though the service was not. The tikka masala and the biryani were both amazing.
So utterly disappointing! The decor is very dilapidated and had nothing magnificent at all about it. I ordered the Lucknow Murgh Biryani and for a staggering $28 I got a half-plateful of very average fare. I have had better food in hole-in-the-wall places in Dallas and Chicago. No pickle, no proper relish or accessory items. Not even a lassi or salty drink to escort the measly entree. Bah!
Our waiter mostly ignored us, didn't take our food order, left the wine bottle on our table for so long that finally I asked the maitre d' for the check and said this must just be a bad night, at which point he took over as our waiter and things got better (not great but better). Good vegetarian Indian dishes, and some very nice wines, though!
I miss the cobalt blue water goblets on the table! It warmed the room!
Great food, great service, great location with a view of Newbury Street. Thank you!
