Very nice Indian food, good service

We made a reservation for this restaurant and got a table upstairs. Nice ambiance, good service. Excellent Indian food, shame it was not that hot anymore. Nevertheless very tasty! Would definitely recommend this place!

If you want to have Indian food in Utrecht: go here! This is the best place in Utrecht. They 'recently' expand their restaurant (probably because business is going well). They have set meals, but also single dishes (i would reccommend to buy 1 or 2 single dishes and share them, they are tastier). Enjoy!

We had dinner on Saturday evening. The service was less than average. The waiters had only attention for the larger groups. The curries were at best average. The madras lamb was ok. The chicken curry was tastless. The rice seemed old. The chapaati and nan were ok.

We went for lunch to Taj Mahal. Food was average and the selection limited. We felt sorry for overloaded staff despite the only few clients in the room. We had to wait quite some time for our food to come. Place was well-decorated but without atmosphere.

Maybe I just had the wrong dish (Chicken Tikka Bhuna), but it was more or less boring. Nice touch: a free Pappadum as a starter.

Fantastic Indian cuisine. When you enter the restaurant you can smell all the lovely Indian spices right away. Naan was to die for. I would go there for the naan alone. But they also had great curries. Loved the djal frezi and the chicken tikka masali.

Back when I lived nearby, about two years ago, I used to go there every now and then. I remember the establishment to be full whenever I walked by or went to dine there, even on working days. Now times have changed. Only three tables were occupied when I walked in last night. Should this have been a sign? They... More

Giving into the sudden Indian food pangs of my loved one, we visited the Taj Mahal restaurant in Utrecht. It’s located very close to the Dome cathedral and was a 15 minute walk from our hotel near the Centraal station in Utrecht. The service was a bit delayed, however the staff were friendly and one of them even conversed with... More

Taj Mahal is a well known restaurant in Utrecht. Flavours ooze through the place. The Indian food is well prepared. My favorites are Onion Bahji, Chicken Karai, Lamb Djal Fresi and much more. I come here almost every month, as a regular I can see a continuimg quality. Sometimes aI like it a bit hotter than offered. But if you... More
