    Liked it a lot

    I really enjoyed my time here...we came for dinner with a group of 5 and then stayed for the lounge part. I had a great time and will come again soon <3

    Great for Drinks & Apps, not for dinner

    I went for dinner w friends recently -nice wine list and great drinks. The appetizers were very good. The main dishes, however, was hit or miss. My friend ordered the 'roasted chicken', which was actually fried and dry w little flavor. Service was also spotty, as 1/2 of us received our entrees almost 15 minutes after the other half, who were almost done at that point. And there were only 4 of us. Truly a disappointment for the price.

    A big no for dinner

    This place is just a lounge - do not mistake it for a restaurant, which it isn't. The food was not good, and the service poor. Good parts are the decor and the DJ. Drinks are at the high end of the range with cocktails at $14 a piece. The hostess was not at her position when we arrived - we had to go looking for her. Trash bags carrying trash were carted across the floor as we sat and ate dinner.

    Lovely atmosphere, poor service

    It's a pity when you find one of those restaurants that for some reason or another you exclaim "Nice, but I wouldn't eat there again." Taj was almost great, the wonderful ambiance was marred by the loud loud music (I understand its a club, but this was during restaurant hours). The food wasn't as good as the prices claimed it was, and as stated - the service was absolutely appalling. When your server largely ignores you, has no idea what is on the menu, and then eventually smilingly brings up the bill with 20% tacked on for a party of 3 - "for our convenience" .. (nowhere was there a mention of this), you really have to wonder what the places first priority is. I am usually a terrific tipper, but after an hour and a half in a restaurant, only spending about 15 minutes actually eating and drinking and the rest of the time sitting largely unable to have a conversation, I really feel slighted by this "benevolent" gesture .. Cool bouncers though

    Amazing

    I recently ate at Taj and the food was amazing. Everything is so flavorful and delicious. The decor is wonderful and the cocktails are genious. Love this place.

    Awesome place! No Attitudes!

    I had a party with a few friends last weekend and everything was amazing. The food was great, the spinach tends to be a little salty though. I reccomend getting the shrimp, the mushroom tart or the rissotto. I had the bass for my entree, it was 2die4. I can't wait to go back. Not to mention the service was impeccable. I do have one suggestion- the place tends to be a little tp dark for dinner service, but if you mention it the staff will do all they can to make your experience better- so just ask!

    Hit AND miss

    The mojito's are the best in the city, by far. The portions are big enough that upon dissection, parts work, parts bomb. Take the scallop entree: the scallops are sensational, the limpid broth simultaneously cloying and sour. And the cucumber "diamonds" and carrots within are soggy and spongey. The crab risotto has a marvelous flavour, but the rice was jarringly undercooked. Very average french fries come with a nicely spiced currry remoulade. A side of spinach was delicious, but a tad salty.. but that just had me sucking down one more impeccable mojito.
