Delicious Aloo Gobi - Edit

Our overall impression is that there is a better Indian restaurant in town - Mango Grove - only two miles away. Royal Taj isn't bad and we'd eat here if there weren't other options. Mango Grove has an overwhelmingly vegan menu compared to just five options at Royal Taj. Our one experience at Royal Taj included a significant wait - about 40 minutes for a ToGo order. Their phone lines were down so we couldn't call ahead. Their internet was down so they couldn't process credit cards normally. The food was actually pretty good but the portion sizes were disappointing given their entrees run several dollars more than the typical Mango Grove entree. The atmosphere was also loud and busy with many tables crammed much closer together than at Mango Grove. If the food hadn't been reasonably tasty it would have been an overwhelmingly negative experience. As it is, we will likely not return. If you're just passing through, the food is good and it's worth a shot. Locals vegans will find a more welcoming atmosphere at Mango Grove with their Meatless Monday events and mostly vegan lunch buffet.

Pros: tasty food, friendly staff

Cons: noisy, small portions, limited vegan options
