No reservation, greeted and asked to sit at bar for a few, at table in 15 mins. Generous drink while waiting. Place was totally packed. Food was very good and staff friendly and accommodating.

I have been there a few times when visiting DC - that place always seems well visited and I've never been disappointed with the food. Last time I was there I got Pappadums with dips for a starter - they were excellent with three different dips (chilli dip, something very good with pickled onions and fresh coriander

When you get a craving for very good tandoori oven cooked chicken (murgh malek kabob), home style dal (lentil) or muligatawny soup, spinach with paneer cheese (saag paneer), and assorted Indian breads including fried bread (puri), potato naan (aloo paratha), get thee to Taj of India.

Try it at least once. This is an excellent option for Indian cuisine, crowded but with attentive staff. Food is a very good example of what can be done with a lot of species as well examples are in all of the plates. Try the samosas filled with vegetables they are great!

The best I have tried before but pretty good. The service was nice (and I think they make everything from scratch). Great place to spend time with your friends and family before dinner.

Healthy portions and delicious food. Nice to find a nice ethnic "joint" in Georgetown that's not hugely overpriced. Good service (sometimes too good) and reasonable "price performance ratio." Will eagerly return soon.

I have now visited twice with great success. My spouse and I enjoyed the Chicken Tika Masala and the Butter Chicken, both of which were, in our estimation, perfect. The service is also excellent, and the prices are resonable.

As someone who eats Indian frequently, I found this establishment to be good and reasonably priced for Georgetown. While I have had better Nan bread, overall the meal was good and about 45 dollars for two with alcohol included.

I went to Washington to see the cherry blossoms. On the last of my stay we decided to search for Indian restaurants in Georgetown. We came upon Taj and based on the menu we decided to try. It was a very good choice. Food was good, service was great and although not a very big restaurant you felt comfortable

I have been to this place twice when staying in Georgetown. The service is very good, personal and good. The food is good, I have eaten Indian food all over the world and this is not the best Indian but it is good and the service and the atmosphere is great. Their "Chat Papri" is excellent appetizer and the naan.

Overall

Coming to DC a few weeks after my trip to India I found myself increasingly craving Indian food. A friend took me to Taj. We had the chaat papri and some papd as appetizers as starters and shared the Taj Thali. The papdom was pretty amazing, crispy and full of flavor. Off the Thali the chicken makhani was nice

Food was great. Slightly on the expensive side, but it is in Georgetown right across from the Four Seasons Hotel :) I liked the service.

Overall

Went to this restaurant due to great recommendations. The staff was very welcoming and courteous throughout the stay, even hanging our coats. The food was prepared quickly and to order without issues.

Very nice Indian restaurant in the heart of Georgetown. nice interior and very friendly staff. The menu is great, all we could see was very well prepared and looked terrific. Our Tandoori mixed was excellent and although we shared it was more than enough for two.

We were extremely pleased with this restaurant. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. We were surprised by the reasonable price, given the quality. It's not a fancy place, but it is pleasant, there are nice white tablecloths and the lighting and low-volume Indian music was just right.
