Taj great authentic Indian fare, May 16, 2012, Dothan

If you’re looking for a bit of international fare you won’t have to go far. Head toward downtown Dothan and you can experience some great authentic Indian food at Taj Café and Barbeque. If you’re not up for something different the restaurant located on North Oates Street also offers southern barbecue along with an extensive Greek menu.

My wife, Liz, and I recently enjoyed a nice Indian meal with a couple of friends, Rhett and Hilary-Rose, at the Taj Café and Barbeque restaurant.

The café has recently changed its interior offering a more relaxed eating experience by adding several cozy living room style chairs at three or four tables. The café also gives the diner several television viewing options while they eat from some traditional Indian cinema to the latest Braves game of NFL football game shown on several televisions.

I enjoyed the samosa chaat for my appetizer, while my wife ordered the coconut soup, which we both enjoyed as our favorite appetizer of the night. 

I ordered the chicken jalfrezi, which included boneless chicken mixed with vegetables layered in a tasty curry sauce on top of rice. You can order your entrée as spicy as you like giving the owner a number between one and 10. I ordered a number seven, which went well with some bullet (jalapeño) and spinach naan bread. My wife quite enjoyed the goat curry.

Our friends Rhett and Hilary-Rose shared the mixed appetizer platter, which included samosa, aloo tikki and pakora. The samosa is a tasty triangular shaped patty stuffed with peas and potato. While the aloo tikki is a mildly-spiced mashed potato fried together with some vegetable into a round cake.

Rhett and Hilary-Rose each ordered the goat and lamb korma. Hilary-Rose called the lamb “perfectly” portioned with a side of rice, which complimented the richness of the cream sauce.

All the main course entrees arrived with sizable portions providing us all with enough leftovers for lunch the next day.

The owner and his staff responded very quickly to our needs, turning off the fan immediately when we mentioned we were cold.

The owner’s personal attention to us, as well as his explanation of the culinary differences showed a refreshing sense of value and care compared to most dining-out experiences in Dothan. We stayed long after we finished our food and did not feel rushed by the staff.

Most of the appetizers came at a reasonable cost of around $5 with the platter costing about $8. Most of the main course items also came to an affordable $13 with only a couple topping out $17.

I highly recommend an evening spent checking out the mouth-watering world of exotic Indian flavors at the Taj Café and Barbeque restaurant.
