Taj Tandoori has been replaced by Abhiruchi Grill. According to a Yelp review, it’s a sister restaurant to Annapurna, the vegetarian place farther down Venice. Looks promising. Anyone tried it yet?
UPDATE: I decided to take one for the team and give them a try. Ordered the Paneer Manchurian (deep-fried cheese cubes in sweet-and-sour sauce) and Chicken Kothu Paratha (egg, chicken, and veggies with paratha cut into strips like noodles). Both were quite tasty, though I’m not sure the chicken in the Kothu Paratha was worth an extra $2. I’d probably get the egg or veggie version next time and order some Chicken 65 separately.
The restaurant itself has been remodeled since its Taj Tandoori days. It’s now cleaner and more spacious with plenty of seating. The place was pretty empty on a Sunday at noon, but they appeared to be doing a fairly brisk takeout business. I’ll definitely be back to try some of the other dishes.
