Sorry in advance for no pics and blathering, but Taj Tandoori has been a reliable go-to lately. They serve “Indian/Pakistani/Halal” dishes. I don’t think they’ve been open very long. We found them on yelp (OMG) - very high ratings. They’re located next to Sofra on Venice Blvd in the Palms area.
Both my wife and I have been crazy busy at work lately. Exhausted, we’ve called in orders here a few times now and have been very happy with their food. The seasonings, the spice levels and the portions are just right to us. Most dishes are spicy - heads-up - but if you enjoy heat, they will suit you fine. The briyani has been very good (not Zam Zam good, but not nearly as oily either).
Their chicken - Tandoori and Yaj Pathani - has dethroned Charga in this household. Again - the seasoning really hits the spot for us. I’m no Indian cuisine expert, but the food in general has been spot-on.
Anyway, they’ve gotten consistently busier over the past month since first visiting them. The majority of dine-ins have been South Asian so they appear to be doing things right.
So if they take longer than promised in fulfilling your order, cut them some slack - like most ethnic eateries, they’re a family-run eatery for the most part. In fact, tell them to take their time. One can’t rush Tandoori excellence…
