Welcome to Taj, home of traditional and exquisite Indian food in Dothan, AL. Our story begins with founder Ritesh Mohan, who had a simple dream of creating a successful restaurant that integrated royal Indian menus dating back 300 to 400 years using the freshest local ingredients.
Ritesh began his journey by moving to the United States in 2001 from India. He began his first business venture by opening Taj Café & BBQ in 2010, and became the first business to introduce Indian food to Dothan, AL. Ritesh knew that opening an Indian restaurant in Alabama would have its challenges, and so he incorporated BBQ into his restaurant to make people feel more at home.
After a warm welcome from the community, he began his second restaurant in Enterprise that served solely Indian food. Although the business was successful, Ritesh saw an opportunity for growth, and decided to add Mexican food to the menu. Taj in Enterprise then became El Sabor de Taj. El Sabor de Taj is currently closed and will re-open at a new location in Enterprise once the virus has passed.
Passionate about Mexican cuisine, Ritesh decided to open an El Sabor restaurant in Gurugram, India in 2019. Introducing El Sabor, and Spanish cuisine, to India has proven to be a major success. The restaurant is designed with a full bar, modern décor, and will also re-open after the virus has passed.
Our main location was established in 2012, Taj Indian and Greek Restaurant, in Dothan, AL, and has been a staple for Indian food ever since. We are dedicated to making fresh Indian & Greek food, and we are still the only Indian restaurant in Dothan, AL. We pride ourselves in our authentic and healthy cuisine, and cherish the lasting relationships made by sharing our culture with the Wiregrass community.
We hope you all come visit us soon!
