Owner Vin Rai wants Boulderites to enjoy “the best Indian food” their money can buy. He credits his chefs for giving customers “good honest food.” That means chefs at Taj take great pride in making every dish as if they were feeding it to their own family. “It’s not just a job for our chefs, they are really proud of what they create. It’s not showy or pretentious, just solid Indian food.” Rai thanks the Boulder community for all the support and continued patronage, now, and over the past 24 years. Everyone at Taj appreciates all the continued take-out orders and kind words from customers who express their desire to support the success of this landmark restaurant in Boulder. 2630 Baseline Road, Boulder, 303.494.5216 tajindianboulder.com.
