Where to Eat: Fort Collins

{tasty leftovers}

Nine times out of ten when we decide to have dinner in Fort Collins we head to Taj Mahal. Though we now have an Indian restaurant in Laramie, we still find ourselves pulled in the direction of Taj Mahal when either of us get a taste for curry.

When it comes to ordering, we are quite boring, as we always get the same thing -- muttar paneer (fresh homemade cheese cubes cooked with green peas in a mildly spiced sauce). Sometimes we mix up our naan order however -- if we're feeling particularly ravenous we'll order naan stuffed with potatoes, cheese, or mixed vegetables -- otherwise we just get it plain. And, it goes without saying that we take an additional order to go so that we can enjoy leftovers the next day. So good!

The service at Taj Mahal is unobtrusive, courteous, and efficient. We've never had to wait for a table and the only time we've seen the restaurant super-busy was when we went there for dinner on New Year's Eve last year. Taj Mahal is consistently recognized as one of Fort Collins' best restaurants. It was given the "Best of Fort Collins" award in 2005 and 2006 by the Fort Collins Coloradoan, recognized as having the "Tastiest Cuisine" at the 1998 and 2001 Taste of Fort Collins events, and was named "Best Local Cuisine" by Tasty Fort Collins in 2008.
