The food is amazing! I have been to lots of Indian restaurant, but Taj tops them all, what's also great is that homey feeling as you're served by the family who owns them, excellent service all the way!

This was our first time in Taj and we were very impressed with the service and quality of food. We all ordered something different and you could taste the difference in each. Everything full of flavour and the Lamb Vindaloo was particularly delicious! Would definitely return there and highly recommend Taj if you want real authentic, good quality food.

A year and a half ago I wrote a raving review. But.. I wasn't the only one! In fact Time Out Amsterdam rated it "the best Indian restaurant in Amsterdam" - so I also voiced my concern... Were they going to collapse under their own success? Would they get sloppy and compromise on the service or the quality of the... More

I always enjoy going back to Taj. The food is always two levels higher than any other Indian restaurant in town. The decor and service are also remarkable.

Let's face it, Amsterdam restaurants can be a hit/miss experience - and often there are more misses then hits. Sometimes you just need something reliable and known and that is where Taj Mahal came in for my spouse and I. It was a Friday night and most of the good central restaurants were packed. We saw this one listed on... More

We came across this place and it looked inviting as well as being one of the only places in the area which was almost full. The waiters were friendly, the atmosphere in the restaurant was warm and comfortable and the food was excellent. Plenty to choose from and they even had red and white wine from Australia at a good...

We were a party of 3 friends who know and love Indian food. All the dishes we ordered, were great, starting with the soups going through the main dishes and to the final accord of the wonderful pista kulfi and gulab jamun. The service was punctual and warm. Highly recommended
