Take my review with a grain of salt, I've never ate Indian food before (that I'm aware of). I wanted to check the lunch buffet out, but I'm never in town that early in the day, so we got dinner instead. The appetizer was really good, no idea what it is but we both liked it. Our server was excellent, he kept an eye on us and kept our drinks filled, with one exception: he couldn't really tell us about the menu other then if it was vegatarian, chicken, lamb, ect... so I tried I think a lamb kabob and I forgot what the girlfriend got other then some type of chicken. Neither of us had a clue what we were eating or how to eat it. Everybody that worked there seemed polite and friendly. We were there on a Saturday night and there might have been 10 customers (including us) in there, total. We'll likely go back after a little research into Indian food to figure out what we might actually like. I can't honestly say if it were good or bad, it was different for us. This place don't look like much on the outside, but it was clean inside with nice tablecloths and dishes, and again, the staff was friendly and took care of us.

Me and a couple of my friends just came to eat at TAJ a couple days ago for their lunch buffet and to be honest, I was a bit nervous because I had never eaten Indian food before. So, we came in and I absolutely loved their decor with the saris hanging because it was a very authentic setting. We were greeted by this man who is probably the manager, and were seated. Judging from the reviews, my experience with my friends was completely different. They had a great variety of food for their buffet. They had Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Chicken, Aloo Gobi (not sure what it is but was delicious), Lamb Sagwalaa (a bit spicy but got to be my favorite) and much more. Now, we came to eat around 1:30 and the buffet was hot like it was just made fresh, and was delicious. Their spice level was perfect (mild), and what really won me over was their mando ice cream. I have got to say that I would recommend this restaurant to anybody who has never tried Indian food, or just wants a great place to eat! Will be back!(:
This is my favorite restaurant! Since I live about 1.5 hours of Knoxville, I have to invent reasons to come into the city. I really appreciate the fact that they also have the buffet on the weekends. I also enjoy the evening menu, but the buffet is my absolute favorite!
