    The Best Indian food in Town!

    I love to eat at Apna Taj! The food is always tasty and I'm so happy it's buffet style because one serving just wouldn't do it for me. :) Service is excellent and the manager is very welcoming and attentive to his customers. I'm there often - at least once a week with a friend. Keep up the excellent service and please don't change or go away!

    Good Indian food in Midtown

    This place is a little gem among the Indian restaurants in and around Midtown. I have had dinner there twice and each time the food was excellent. The chicken vindaloo was spicy and vinegary, just like it should be. The malai kofta was creamy and mild. I also had the bhindi masala. And the naan was a kheema naan which was soft and meaty. It is a bit pricey but the food more than makes up for it.

    resonable price

    Appatizer was good. Main meal was too salty. Ambiance is allright. Manager is very nice person and welcoming. Waitress was allright. I used restaurant.com certificate, but I will not recommened using certificate for this perticular place as they have dinner buffet for $11 per person which is better deal.

    Amazing /Lunch AND Dinner Buffet

    So I fancy myself a conneuiseur of sorts of indian cuisine having lived smack in curry hill and spent 6 months working abroad in delhi and Hydrebad. I absolutely love the selection at Apna Taj - their offerings are different practically everyday and sometimes if something's not on the menu, they'll go the extra mile for you - at no cost. I think they're the only ones in the city with the dinner buffet option which is under 12 bucks....that's a steal in my book. Fav. dish there is their malai kofta. also love their biryani and lamb vindaloo. yumm. would recommend over darbar which for a dollar more has "ambience" but i think that's what you're paying for really (they only offer standard fare ) and when it comes down to it, your stomach won't notice.

    Empty Lunch Buffet

    This was a strange eating experience, first after we arrived at 1:10 they were nearly 2tables for lunch. We got up and there were no chicken, lamb, veggies, nan, or salad. We pretty much sat down with a bunch of old pieces of fried eggplant and rice. They slowly arrived with nan which half of the restaurant ran up for, then tandoori chicken again half the place got up for. This went on for sometime, the dish's were brought in small amounts and finished quickly. Despite this place trying to starve customers the food was spot on. The onion chutney was great, the chicken tandoori smell bad, the chicken korma was just breast of chicken and a nice light sauce, and one of the veggie curry's was nice. The salad was no good, the no frill rice was bland, the appetizers were deep fried unidentified objects, and the nan wasn't special. I would never eat here again, too much weird stuff transpired. The dishes I liked wasreally bad

    MMM, Lovely!

    I have eaten at Apna Taj quite a few times. I find the service and the general vibe of the place excellent. The food is delicious, fresh and unpretentious. Coming from the North of India, their spices are somewhat different than those of their more familiar to New York, Southern counterparts, but are equally as tasty. I would recommend to any and everyone.
