After trying out the other local Indian restaurant here in St. John's, I decided to try this restaurant to see how it compared. The atmosphere is nice, the prices were average for St. John's dining, and the food was good but not as good as the other Indian restaurant I visited. No complaints on the experience as a whole, but... More

I went tonight with 3 friends to celebrate a retirement. We were a little nervous because of the reviews mentioned. We had a great time. There were lots of choices. It was especially good as one of our group requires a gluten free menu . We wanted to share our choices and were delighted there were so many gluten free... More

It was a Tuesday night, just myself and one other lone diner around 8.30pm. We were seated at opposite ends of the restaurant...it was deathly quiet apart from the staff talking out the back in the Kitchen. Could have done with some music to give some atmosphere. I did approach the other diner to see if she wanted to join... More

I went there on recommendation that it was a good buffet. It was not. First the waiter sat us at a dirty table and started to clear the table. He removed the table cloth and then went to get us another one - i say another one because the one he came back and the new tablecloth was actually dirtier... More

My wife and I moved back to newfoundland last year after being away for 5 years and were pleased to find the Taj Mahal is still open and as good (or better) as ever. The menu is HUGE, the food is authentic and amazing, the dinning room is beautiful and the service is great. Their kitchen has a big glass... More

I thought the interior decor was fine although there was some sort of damp musty smell when I entered the premises for the lunch buffet. I've notice that in other restaurants in old buildings too although not all my friends do. There were only about five customers while we were there including our own party and after trying the buffet... More

We were pleasantly surprised on our last visit. The server was very helpful and pointed out their $50 dinner for two, which was huge! Dinner for two and dinner the next day! :) He even allowed a substitution with it (as long as the item was the same or less cost than that substituted). The new decor is nice. The... More

The new decor looks really nice. The place was really overdue for an update. I had great food there 3 years ago. I went in February and it was pretty bad. The lunch buffet a few weeks ago was pretty small and lacking in vegetables and flavour. I'll give it another try soon for a la carte to see if... More

Go for Indian food on Duckworth Street until this place has a bit of a shake up. I was told by friends that it had been great, bit cold (as in temperature) in winter but great food, great value

I hear the lunch buffet is when the restaurant fills but we have eaten a la carte for dinner and the food is truly delicious. They will even make it "Indian" hot if you so request (Newfoundlanders do not like very spicy foods). Every time I have Indian food in other countries (including most Indiand restaurants in the UK) I... More
