Great food amazing value friendly service

My and my wife went on a friends recommendation...who is Indian and said it probably as authentic as your going to get this side of Mumbai. That being said we went....food was great service very friendly and prices extremely reasonable.

Most of Aruba's food is mild, so it was a true pleasure to find this place. Had chicken vindaloo and lamb kabob with garlic naan. Very nice. Good service. Good price.

The restaurant on the outside may not be very inviting and the interior is not that great, but wait until you taste the food! Every time we come to Aruba, and that is at least once a year, Restaurant Taj Mahal is on top of our list and we are never disappointed, very tasty, very Indian and different levels of... More

I took the naanwich. Normally I do not like Indian food very much, but this was very good, not spicy at all. My husband had the chicken massala ( he really likes Indian food) And Thatcher was also delicious.

We went for lunch here after a bit of shopping and it is a very tasty and quite a quick service. Love the free WiFi (if you ask...) And the best is that they can really adjust to our taste buds with the spices without making a flat meal. Taste is still there, fire is not ;)

When you enter this restaurant, you get the feeling of the local fast food restaurant in Mumbai, India. Food taste is very Indian, as the name suggests. The Indian Deserts are a must to try.

Walked in for lunch as the restaurant was opening. Unfortunate first impression of a smileless greeting and still having to wait 15 minutes for them to clean the bathrooms while my very pregnant self and toddler both crossed our legs and tried to hold it together! Luckily we were first in, and knew what we wanted. My husband being from... More

Thus is a tiny Indian restaurant in town (Oranjestad). The food is excellent and so is the service. When visiting this place one will return.
