Tempe >Royal Taj
This is the best Indian restaurant you can find in Arizona. They have amazing lunch buffet with great customer service. It's a family run restaurant with wonderful menu as well. Tandoori chicken, Chicken tikka masala, chicken karahi are so good. Bar is very nice with good indian and local beer.
Best Indian Food Since I left London!!. What a find. I was down in Tempe dog sitting and drove past this place and stopped on a wim. SOOOO glad I did!! Food was fresh tasting and brightly flavored. Highly recomend the lamb saag!! The only issue I would say is that the naans were a bit thinner I am used to, but still tasty none the less...just different than what I'm used to. If you are looking for great Indian food at a reasonable price please don't pass up Royal Taj!!!
Great Veggie Biryani.
This is one of the greatest Indian restuarants in Tempe. I have moved to Mesa and still come over here to enjoy the cusines.
Will keep coming back....but hope they move to Surprise!!!!.
Well I was craving some good Indian cusine and was very skeptical to search out for a great place just because when you are in the mood for something specific you don't want to end up with a lousy taste in your mouth. So my husband and I decided to trust the reviews about this place and we even drove all the way from SURPRISE ! It was so good I would drive back EVERY time I crave it just to know I was getting good stuff. I had the Karahi Tandoori Chicken Saag (extra spicey) mmmmm I can still taste it. My husband had the Karahi Chicken Fresh it was great also but not very spicey ...along with the garlic Naan bread.
I have to say I was SHOCKED for an hour and half that we were there on a Saturday night only one other couple came. I do believe that if they moved to Surprise they would get ALOT more business . Don't know if they are just stuck in the wrong location?!? However we will keep coming back and I will and have already recommended Royal Taj to everyone I know. WONDERFUL food and sweet hospitality!!
Only reason not five stars is the bathroom was small , dark and kinda dirty .
Good Lunch. These guys have one of the best Lunch Buffets in town for INDIAN Cusien, for the Price. You should shurely try it great setting too.
Best Indian Food I've sampled in the U.S. thus far!. Oh my! I absolutely love the family atmosphere of the staff - so welcoming, smiling and seem very peaceful and happy. The restaurant setting is elegant in an off-beat manner. Hints of upper class in table settings, in a middle class atmosphere and environment. Comfortable to say the least. The selection of beverages (beer for my father and husband) is delectable, cool and refreshing against the warm spices and fragrant dishes. My 87 year old father from Indonesia absolutely loves this restaurant and we make it a point to bring him as often as he wishes. He was always "the" cook in our household and his taste buds over-rule any other opinions we may have as he is always right on. The dishes are prepared immaculately with the perfect blends of spices. The rice (a staple in our family line) is perfect! I've sampled Indian food in many large cities in the United States and honestly, this humble restaurant is my absolute favorite for the food, the price, the attention to decor, cleanliness and happy service. The one person who gave this beautiful treasure a bad review must have been having a bad day. You cannot go wrong with this, if you love to explore different ethnic foods, and like a little spice in your life! Enjoy and many happy returns!
Only place for indian in central az!. I recently moved away from arizona but for the 10 years that i did live there, my family and I at there at least once a month. It was the first indian I had ever tasted and in the long time since first dining there I have compared all restaurants to it. No one has their chicken tikka masala beat. Go to this place, support local flavor, and have a great evening!
Second Worst Indian food in the valley. The food is so bad that I feel that it's in it's own class of bad Indian food alongside Pasand. This food tastes extremely amateur-like. The beer is stale and tastes like it hasn't been changed from the tap in over a year.
Best Indian restaurant in PHX!.
I've eaten at every Indian restaurant in the East Valley and Royal Taj is the best! It's more affordable than places like "Jewel of the Crown" in Scottsdale and the food is so flavorful!
My favorite is the malai kofta and the chana masala. The garlic naan is fabulous, too. For lunch, the buffet is awesome, usually featuring several vegetarian dishes, several chicken dishes, rice, naan, and two desserts.
My husband tried to trick me, bringing home take-out from another Indian restaurant. I could tell right away. How? Because the rice at Royal Taj is long and flavorful. The malai kofta is perfectly moist and full of spices and the chana masala is perfectly cooked and has just the right amount of sauce. No other place does this stuff as well as Royal Taj! Also... try the rasmalai, if they have it. It's delicious.
Best Indian food since I was in East London. Since coming to AZ, I've never even looked for a good Indian restaurant. Finally, I decided to look on City Search and found Royal Taj. The reviews were right on! Every single dish we ordered was tasty and fresh! Since my husband had never had authentic Indian food, we had our server explain and recommend some dishes. I had the Karahi Shrimp (spicy!) and my husband had the Karahi Lamb (also spicy!). The shrimp was big and fresh; the lamb was tender and juicy! We ordered the garlic naan, which I swear they just made from scratch a few minutes earlier! We finished off the meal with the wonderful desserts of mango lassi and rasmalai (a wonderful recommendation from our server!). We're only going to be in AZ a few months longer and hopefully we'll get to Royal Taj as many times as possible!
