Really tasty curry and friendly staff

We are regulars to the sister restaurant in St Austell and while down in Penzance we thought we'd try this one as the one in St Austell is so good. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is slightly tucked away from the main street but well worth a visit. The food is more Nepalese rather than... read more

It has a very comprehensive menu and the food is well presented. The staff are attentive and friendly. It is a little out of the way but it does get very busy. They also have some excellent wines which go well with the food

For the first time I left my comfort zone (madras) and tried one of the specials wow it was the most tasty curry I've had in years. The service is outstanding nothing is too much for them. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant try and enjoy

Tucked away in the backstreets of Penzance is the Taj Mahal which offers a very friendly welcome and good food. The restaurant looks nice though we just used the take-away service and if you go on a Wednesday then there are special offers (we got a free bottle of wine). Food was very good, great value for money and cooked... More

Been to many curry houses, this is one of the best. Nearest curry to B&B and a very pleasant surprise. Chef to be congratulated. Unusual Nepalese dishes cooked to perfection. Chicken chilli fry exquisite. I am not connected to the Taj, just appreciate good food and amazed to accidentally find it here.

After a week of walking around the Cornish coast and eating at Gastropubs and fine dining restaurants, we were tired of monkfish and steaks. Do for our last dinner in England we opted for Indian food. The Taj Mahal turned out to offer us the best dinner of our trip, we truly enjoyed the hi level Indian-Nepalese cuisine. My wife... More

Great food with really good selection. One of the better Indian meals we have had in the UK. Restaurant busy and waiters were there for at times a little pre occupied. Good options for wine (by the bottle or by the glass). All in all great meal that was reasonably priced.

The food here was top notch, really flavourful and substantial portion sizes. The house wine was also very good at 10 pounds a bottle.

Don't know why, but I just wasn't expecting such a good curry in a small Cornish town. Very popular and we hadn't booked, told us to come back in half an hour. We did, waited 5 minutes and they got us a table. Well worth the wait. A brilliant curry.
