Amazing service and delicious food!
The service is always incredible, everyone on the staff is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is quiet and clean. I've ordered food to go before and they were fast, packaged everything well, and the order was perfect. The food tastes great. Everything I've tried there is delicious. This is my favorite Indian place in town.

My favourite for real authentic North Indian Food and Tandoor dishes. Had been here many times, they never failed me for dine-in or carry out. Many times we request the dishes which are not in menu and the Chef understands exactly what we are looking for and prepares especially for us. Again today, returning from a weekend getaway fr... read more

Great food and service
We got the mataraja meal which is a 3 course meal and it was excellent. The appettizure was tender and full of flavor. The entrees were chicken, lamb, and spinach with cheese. The only one that was laking flavor was the spinach with cheese. The dessert was perfect not to sweet. The service was phenomenal great timing for the courses.

I came here on recommendation, and I do not regret it. I have had a LOT of Indian food, and have yet to ever have great Indian buffet-style. Well, this place has set the standard! It was delicious, the drinks were kept full and the food was seasoned in such a way that I did not want to stop eating. I can't pronounce half of what I at... read more

Just returned from an amazing lunch buffet here. Literally every dish I tried was enjoyable and well made.Palak Paneer was great. The daal was sublime, and the service was very quick in clearing my dishes. Overall an amazing experience and a must try for people in the area.

Wonderful meal today; the food was all fresh and seasoned well, nothing was too bland. The staff were very kind and attentive. I really enjoyed the Gobi 65, spicy breaded cauliflower in a tangy red sauce. The goat curry was excellent as well, and my naan soaked up more palak paneer than I want to admit. Clean atmosphere with lovely m... read more

Came here with a Groupon. The experience as a whole was pretty good. Had to wait quite awhile to get our food though, which was interesting, considering it wasn't very crowded at all. The food was good, but the chicken dish we ordered was a little dry. Would give it another chance if it came up. ... read more

A wonderful experience!
Was in the area for a conference and we decided in Indian food. I had driven by this place for years but never visited. We went for lunch and there was a buffet which had a wide variety of Indian food. Everything seemed fresh, not dry like many buffets. The kitchen crew were refilling the trays as needed and management was regularly ... read more

Great lunch buffet!
We recently returned to Taj Palace, and found that the lunch buffet was even better than we remembered. It is a great value, and the food is constantly refreshed (unlike some other buffets). Good service and lovely atmosphere.

I had a really great experience here! I got very respectful and kind service, even though I was a mess ( worked a 16hr shift, tired, dirty scrubs).

Excellent chicken korma and goat curry! The lunch buffet is definitely where it's at - $10.95 for fresh, hot food that is continuously being replenished. Also, they have very nice, authentic, refreshing desserts to follow all that spicy curry!

Taj Palace is the most expensive Indian lunch buffet in Austin. It's also a strong contender for the best.

I lean more South th... read more

My favorite Indian food in Austin. Don't let the weird location in a strip mall put you off. What it lacks in elegant location it makes up in food.

I've always wanted to try this kind of food and I finally did it. I'm not a fan of buffets, but I definitely tried this one because I wanted to try everything they had. I love the chicken curry,the naan bread was delicious,there's also the vegetarian section. I really like the ambiance too.

Taj Palace is in a little corner of Austin close to a new ACC campus, plenty of parking and the food is very good. I prefer to order off menu than their buffet, lamb korma was excellent and their garlic naan breads. Mango lassi to drink compliments the spicier meals.

Easily the best Indian restaurant in Austin. My husband and I started coming here about a year ago and we LOVE IT! The service is always great and the food is so wonderful!

Decent Indian buffet, a lot of vegetarian options. They bring fresh nan to your table. I mainly ate the rice, chicken makhani, tandoori chicken, and naan. It didn't blow me away but it was a solid meal. Restaurant was clean and service was adequate and quick. I might be back if I'm craving Indian again before this trip is over.

We came to Taj Palace for the lunch buffet during work one day and I definitely recommend it for vegans and vegetarians. I don't eat any meat but I do splurge and have some dairy every now and again. The nicest thing about this place is that everything on the buffet is labeled vegan or vegetarian, and being an Indian restaurant, ther... read more

I've been a fan for years but I really thought it was a good move when they started to bring freshly bakes naan to the tables. Awesome - nice and crispy.

Avoid the buffet, just order from the menu. Their "On Menu" meals are fantastic, I have been going here for years, but their Buffet is pretty underwhelming overall. So go for a sit down dinner! Lamb Biryani! Woot!

Five stars for one of my favorite Indian restaurants. I love coming here for a quick buffet. I also like that you can purchase a to-go box and fill it up from the buffet. That way you can get several different options instead of one type of curry to eat with your rice. The food is always fresh, as they often replenish the dishes. The... read more

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Many business people avoid this part of town. It is not pretty, but if you crave fine Indian cuisine, go here. The sauces are precise and distinctive. The tandoori grilled food is flavorful, moist and not overdone. Mattar paneer was a standout. Service was professional. Ambiance conducive to a busines... read more

A decent choice
I look for Indian lunch buffets as I travel and found this one recently in Austin.
