We just ate at the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant in Utrect today. It was the worst Indian food we had ever eaten. In fact, we could say that so far it has been the worst Indian food in the Netherlands! Nothing tasted good. It seemed like roasted chicken was put in different gravies. The amount given was also small compared... More

Really good food with some outstanding Nan bread... Service was good, and rates were quite decent... we were able to have a nice meal for two people, for just around 60 euros, which wasn't quite bad. They also serve Halal lamb (if you are interested).

This may be a happy experience for some ( noting other reviews) but we were left waiting for food for an hour. When it arrived, set Taj Mahal 2 persons at 52 E, the food was almost cold. The tandoor food was only warm and tough. 5 hours later, my wife started vomiting and was very ill from food poisoning.... More

I've visited four times now. The food is good, if you want something spicy the vindaloo is the best choice. Some of the dishes are a bit oily. Overall a good curry but not amazing.

Were welcomed to eat a very nice meal quite late (always a difficult thing in NL). Very nice curries that even our UK curry-head companion could enjoy. As far as I know the best Indian restaurant in Utrecht!

I chose a vindaloo dish which I am pretty familiar with, in terms of its spiciness (due to where I came from), but the waiter kept asking me to change my choice. I did find that irritating as he takes a look at me and without asking about my background, he decided the dish would be too spicy for me.... More

I love the food here! Also great location and service. Lots of choice for vegetarians, but also for meat lovers, spicy and mild curries. The service is always nice and it is usually very busy. It's probably my favorite restaurant in Utrecht, for a casual eating out no fuss and tasty dinner!

Whenever we go we always enjoy the rich choice of vegetarian dishes and good naan bread from the Tandoori oven. The service is relaxed. As it can be quite busy at Saturday and Sunday nights we have also tried the next door Taj Mahal Lounge which is as good (same owners).

Located in a beautiful street in the city centre, this Indian restaurant was really a nice surprise. You can sit outside, food is good and service is better than the standard service in the Netherlands. They serve a complimentary appetizer and there is a lot of choice also for vegetarians.
