Nice variable menu

Friendly service. We were delighted by the menu, which had the basics but also variable other stuff. And they were really tasty.

At 9:30 pm I ventured out for dinner. I had passed by Taj Mahal several times on my way headed for the causeway head, bread st or market jew st. Every time I passed thinking 'a small Indian restaurant in a residential neighborhood- how good can that be? Each restaurant I passed that night had stopped serving. Taj was fairly... More

Lovely food. Tried chicken Biyrini for a change instead of madras. People very friendly and advice given on what quantity of food to have with what. Did not have to wait too long. Onion bargees very nice luckily we only ordered one portion (3 bargees) which together with main course was plenty. Good size portions. It is Nepalese and Indian... More

I booked a table and they asked us to arrive at 6.30pm to ensure they could give us their proper service. It was understandably packed but our food only arrived at 8pm! After I enquired about the lengthy wait. I am sorry to say that the wait did not enhance the food, my chicken Dhansak was nothing like I had... More

We arrived late into Penzance, starving hungry and short on options. Chris, our B n B host recommended this place and we're very grateful that he did. Not only did they welcome us warmly at 10.30pm(they were about to close), but they presented us with the most delicious Nepalese dishes we've tasted thus far (and coming from Melbourne, Australia, we...

The chicken Dhansak is always a fav with my partner! The pilau rice was and is always cooked to perfection. The restaurant is nice and clean. Staff friendly. Sometimes... More

I ordered a Rogan curry takeaway for 7pm. Arrived promptly at 7pm for collection. It took me 3 minutes to drive home in Penzance, and when I did my wife and I served the food immediately but found it to be just warm - as if it had been cooked and ready and standing for 10 minutes even before collection...

Penzance has a few curry houses and takeaways but none are particularly inspiring except for the Taj Mahal. It is a Nepalese themed menu but with traditional Brit favourites too. Really well-cooked dishes, super service and attention to detail. You must try the Nepalese momos - little steamed meat or veg dumplings and my mohi dohi is definitely now a... More
