Best Indian Restaurant

Taj has all the classic Indian dishes covered — tikka masala, tandoori chicken, korma. But don’t let the (very) large menu fool you: This isn’t watered-down, bland food. The folks at the Nolensville Pike restaurant know what they’re doing. They serve tender meat with nuanced spices, naan with crystals of garlic, and a host of vegan and vegetarian options (baingan bhartha and hakka noodles are favorites), which all range from extremely spicy to mild enough for kids and adults with sensitive palates. In fact, Taj is the most people-pleasing restaurant I know of. Just try to leave without being full and happy. I dare you. ELIZABETH JONES
