Introducing thousands of OSU students to delectable Indian cuisine is good enough to earn the top spot here, but Taj Mahal also draws dedicated patrons from across the city. This place specializes in the traditional style of Mughlai cooking from Northern India, and the Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Vindaloo are popular standout dishes. After a 2009 move, they revamped the space to include the awesomely posh Taj Bar, which hosts weekly karaoke and live music nights.
