Rating: Solid made to order curries
Chicken Tikka Masala. Tender boneless chicken pieces cooked with spices in a creamy cashew and tomato sauce. I always have to try it. Sort of a reference dish. This one was very good. Not as spectacular as at Akbar, but very very good. Nice soft chicken. Curry was a touch thin, but not sweet (which is good). Made to order too, not the buffet slop.
Garlic Naan. Fresh baked and delicious.
Taj Tandoori is a small family run place that serves up very good Northern Indian food. It isn’t fancy or modern, but they do make stuff to order and features nice flavors not those overly sweet or overly salty slops. The meats seem very good too.
