Taj Indian Restaurant

September 2017
Good things often come in small packages. So it is with Taj restaurant.
Taj is a modest restaurant in a shopping promenade in Or Akiva. There are only 4 or 5 tables so each table gets full attention. The restaurant has many followers in the 5-towns area (Ceasarea, Or Akiva, Pardes Hana, Zichron Yaakov) and in the short time that it is open it has made a nice name for itself

Moshe Solomon is the power behind this family owned restaurant. Mosher made aliya from Mumbai in 1973. His wife, also Indian, is from Dimona. Together they run the restaurant with Moshe's mother, who presides over the kitchen. If it is good home made Indian cooking that you are after, you came to the right place.

Taj is a meat restaurant with many vegetarian options, as is the Indian culinary tradition. And speaking of tradition, those familiar with Indian cuisine will enjoy their favorites traditinal dishes at Taj.

From Tripadvisor:
Taj gets high marks on Tripadvisor. Here are some of the comments:

"We visited on 22 August with nine people. It is a small shop on a public square which has room for perhaps 15 people but tables also outside with a large cooling fan. 

The people are very friendly and helpful, originally from Mumbai. The food selection is modest compared to the curry houses of Britain but the dishes are nicely cooked, attractively presented and not too 'hot'. The appetizers were a nice size and the chicken Tikka was very good indeed, succulent and tasty; everyone enjoyed what they ordered."

"This is effectively one up from street food so no alcohol or desserts but nevertheless we left feeling full."

"A nice family run business, very good, sometimes excellent and delicate jewish indian dishes. The restaurant's design is very basic and it contains 4 tables for 4 indoors. The place is very clean. We visited there twice. The place opened some 6 months ago. Closed on Saturday."

" We had a wonderful dinner here, the nan was fantastic and also the vegetable Thali. We ordered many vegetarian dishes and all were yummy! Enjoy"

"Small, clean, outdoor seating too..very friendly and fast service. Food was great. Tasty. Vegetarian and chicken dishes. Very satisfying"

"...this restaurant is run by an Indian family, and the kitchen is 100% authentic. Indian cooking is not static, but includes tradition from many regions in India, so there is not just one style, but many. The one offered at this wonderful place, is one of many.

The food is very fresh, very well prepared, incredibly tasty and fairly priced! 

I have been to many Indian restaurants all over, in Italy, London, NY and Israel. and this is by far way up on the top of my list with a few others.

Highly recommended! It does not get much better than this out of India! 
Tip: its a small place, with 4 tables in side and one outside. I suggest calling in advance to make sure they have availability.. but if you have to wait, its worth it!!"
