I had a lot of meals at Taj Mahal, when I lived in Hokkaido! I used to travel to Sapporo by train (about 45 minutes) just to meet some friends for the best Indian, probably in the whole country. The heat factor/spice level seemed very authentic... Although I'm not Indian. Anyway, if you're tired of ramen and sashimi, you ought to consider Taj Mahal as an option.
