It’s owned by Mohamed Hossain, a native of Bangladesh who owns Paak Bazaar, the Indian grocery store next door that’s been in the shopping center for about 15 years.
Taj will offer items from a mix of cuisines, including kabobs, gyros, burgers, and sweets, as well as curry, biryani, and samosas, says his daughter, Dulary Hossain, a student at George Mason University. The restaurant is mostly carryout, but there is seating for about 18 diners.
The first customers who arrive tomorrow before 4 p.m. will get a free appetizer. The restaurant is open 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10-11 on Friday and Saturday, and 10-9 on Mondays. It will do catering, too.
