Taj in Danbury?

Someone told me there's a new Indian restaurant in Danbury called "Taj." Anyone know anything about it? A google search only turned up an old place called Taj Mahal....

  1. I'm not sure of the exact name, but it's on Mill Plain Road, next to the Bank of America. It opened a couple of weeks ago. I drove past it yesterday, and was thinking that I need to stop in for a take out menu. I will post if I try it.

    1. It's called the Taj Palace. I think it's still open - seems like there are never any cars there however.

      I've eaten there once, and done takeout once or twice - i found their prices a bit high and the food good, but not great, the service average. The tables, especially by the window, are too close together so prepared to play bumper cars with whomever is behind you.

      I personally prefer driving down to Thali who I find have better flavors (and I think slightly less expensive), or up to Bombay.

        Can you please tell me where Thali and Bombay restaurants are located? Any other place you recommend to dine in Danbury? Thanks!

          The Thali in this thread refers to the one on Route 7 in Ridgefield (actually, it might technically be in Redding). Follow Rte 7 south from Danbury until you see the Days Inn on your left, about 10 minutes from the mall. Thali is in the center of the motel.

            yes Thali is on Rte 7 between the mall and Wilton.
            Bombay is of Exit 6 of 84, on the way to New Fairfield, near the prison.
            Then you have India Kitchen on Federal Road in Brookfield, or Kolam in Newtown.

              Bombay is under new ownership as of a few weeks ago, I've tried them once via take-out (they don't have a new take-out menu available but they were willing to make a couple of the old Bombay's menu). The new food seems good, definitely spicier (hotter), which is fine by me, I didnt get a chance to review their new menu to see what they had though.
