The foodsmiths at Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine employ a host of traditional cooking techniques to craft a menu of authentic Indian fare. Chefs marinate the tandoori chicken in yogurt and spices including ginger and freshly ground coriander for seven to eight hours before roasting the flavor-infused dish in a 500-degree tandoor oven ($11) and presenting the meal to the table. Roasted tilapia douses itself with sauce made from onions, pepper, and garlic to create the samundri machli ($13), and the lamb vindaloo arrives in a spicy curry that is hot enough to elicit jealous tears from nearby pyrotechnicians ($14). Palak paneer eschews meat in favor of fresh spinach and homemade cheese amid a bed of onions and a dollop of cream ($11). The spacious dining room reverberates with intertable conversations while diners tear into orders of freshly baked garlic naan ($2).
Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine
The rich aroma of delicately spiced dishes crafted from fresh, quality meats and veggies drifts across Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine's golden interior. House-baked naan clings like a wetsuit soaked in honey to the walls of a tandoor oven that preps flavorful chicken, lamb, and beef skewers that are steeped in a yogurt marinade for seven to eight hours before braving up to 500-degree heat. Diners seize control of curry construction, requesting prawns, beef, lamb, chicken, or paneer, and vegetarians can ogle a menu section exclusively dedicated to garden grub. Flickering-candle centerpieces breathe life into tables costumed in black-and-white hues reminiscent of a polar bear after a fistfight.
