Waiter lied to my face about the dish I ordered. I ordered Chicken Tikka Masala and he brought out Butter Chicken. I later asked him why the tikka masala has a sweet taste and it is in tomato based. He continue to lie and explained that's how they cook it. When I got home, I research both recipes and it was clear to me that the dish he brought out is the wrong one. When i confronted him about, he figured I could be easily fooled. He ruined my experience. Big liar. Also my girlfriend ordered the chef special and she was told it would be a yellow Curry, he brought out chicken vindaloo. what a shady establishment.

The food was good as usual, however the website stated they were open until 9:30PM but the waiter told us they were open until 9:00 and we were rushed, which totally ruined our meal. They need to update their site if that was the case. Staff were not the usual group of guys. Did ownership change? Hope not, we loved those guys.

Do not waste your time or money. Even with the groupon, this is not a deal. The staff was rude since the moment we walked in the door and the food was not the best compared to comparable Indian restaurants (we eat a lot of Indian food). If we had not already purchased the Groupon we would have left shortly after seating and waiting over 15 minutes to be served (there was only one other party in the restaurant). Most of the patrons were noticeably upset throughout our visit and we witnessed 2 parties leave midway through their meal. They displayed many plaques and awards from the lat 90's, but it was very evident the have been going downhill since and have not reinvested any of their earnings back into the business. They will not be able to continue to survive in this market on their old reputation much longer. Please don't make the same mistake we did.

Good appetizers and desserts, but the entrees weren't my favorite. Average for the area.

Chicken tikka masala is much sweeter than others I've had, but still very yummy.

From Our Editors

If Cafe Taj’s large stone fountain could talk, the rippling waters would still keep mum, because the restaurant’s authentic Indian cuisine can speak for itself. Warm naan and whole-wheat roti sop up creamy curry sauce from main dishes, and the black tables are loaded down with charcoal-roasted tandoori dishes for pairing with both wine and beer from a fully stocked bar. After sating sugar cravings with rose- and cardamom-scented sweets, patrons can question servers about their catering services or use the dining room’s Romanesque columns to kick off a backflip in honor of an evening well spent.
