Best Indian Food in the Valley – I love this place. Best Indian food in the Valley. We've been ordering takeout from them weekly for about 9 years now, and they are consistently great. I totally recommend Taj Mahal
Sensational Indian Cusine – That's right - RUN to TAJ MAHAL.
Located on Ventura in Encino, Taj Mahal gives everyone an exceptional taste of India.
The Chicken Biryani is to die for. The Chicken Tikka is my personal favorite.
The service is terrific. The owner, Menjit, is lovely.
You leave Happy and Healthy, not to mention filled up and satisfied.
Best Indian place in town..hands down!!!!
Best Indian Restaurant on the West Coast – Both my wife and I grew up in India and have lived in the Los Angeles area for 15 years. We also travel throughout the US. We have yet to find a North Indian restaurant that can beat the quality of their vegetarian and chicken dishes anywhere in the US, let alone in the greater Los Angeles area. The food is authentic and they can cater to your taste individually with the right amount of spices. They have been able to maintain their quality largely because it is a small family-run restaurant, with a very tight control over their quality. The restaurant is located in the city of Encino and can be easily accessed from Universal Studios, Hollywood, by car within 15 minutes with no traffic. The service is terrific, with a friendly and homely environment. Everything on their menu is great. Try them and you will return for more as we have for the last 7 years after discovering them and virtually giving up on every other Indian restaurant.

Taj Mahal rocks! – I've been in the Valley for ages and I can't believe some people don't know about this place. I almost don't want to tell any more people about it, because everyone I take here becomes a regular. I'm a picky eater but everything I've tried on the menu has been delicious. They have an excellent lunch buffet, with all the trimmings. They used to be closed on Monday nights but I just found out they are open seven nights a week now - (sometimes a delicious warm meal takes the edge off the beginning of the work week).
The food is always high quality and the recipes are outstanding. I've had Indian food on 4 continents, and this place ranks up there with the best of them!
Best Indian food in the Valley! – I have been eating at Taj Mahal at least a couple of times a month for over 5 years and they have never disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious, the portions are generous and the lunch buffet always has a well-balanced selection for vegetarians and omnivores. If you're in the Valley and in a hurry for lunch, you can put together your own buffet plate to go. For lunch or dinner try the aloo chat (I haven't found this anywhere else in the Valley), sag paneer or lamb korma. If you're a sag fan, theirs is the best!
We come up here a couple of times a month and have done so for about 10 years. Great service & great food. We love it!
Good eats. – I have been coming for years! Love the food. You guys have been feeding this boy for years. Keep up the good work!
Been coming for 4 years – Food is excellent and service is great too! Lentils and spinach are best we have ever had. Chicken is tasty and tender. Need Kheer in the buffet. We have been coming here for 4 years and will keep on coming for many more. Thank you.
I eat here once a week... – I've been eating here regularly at least once a week for almost 7 years. The owners are delightful and I've met wonderful people here as well as regular customers. But the food is what keeps us all coming back. It's fresh, delicious, spice w/finesse and offers a large variety of choices for everyone. Try the mango corn soup and the onion kulcha to start!
I love your food! Taj Mahal is my favorite restaurant. I especially enjoy the chicken Tikka Masala - hot. Great service too. I've eaten chicken Tikka Masala in many parts of the world (even Uzbekistan). Yours is the best!
