Fast and cheap Indian food in the Dinkydome

Food Court or Street Vendor

Little Taj Mahal has great lunch specials and there are many veg delights on the menu, including eggplant fritters, samosas, curries, etc. This is a nice place to catch lunch while near the U of MN campus.

Seeing as it's the only Indian cuisine in Dinkytown, Little Taj Mahal is a plus.

Prices are incredibly cheap, especially for the buffet, which has a decent selection of vegetarian items (at least 3-4 items every time), and they change things up just a little bit every now and then.

Food tends to be on the bland and unspicy side, so I'd recommend shaking some chili powder on top to give it more flavor. It makes a difference.

On a side note, they have the worst utensils ever. Flimsy plastic and unergonomic forks make it hard to eat without looking like a four-year-old. BYOS (Bring Your Own Silverware)? I'm all about being proletarian, but... ;-)

I LOVE the samosas, mainly because they are super super cheap (I think they are 1.25/ea) and make for a great grab and go food between classes.

I haven't really had any of their other dishes, except for some sort of spicy greens and rice type of thing that I cannot remember the name of.
