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!

Busy restaurant with a wide vriety of Indian dishes, sweet or spicy. Staff could be better. Not for quick dining. 5 starts anyhow because of the excellent food and the price.

Always difficult to find anything on the European mainland that approaches an Indian or even a UK curry. This, sadly fits that mold. For 4 people you get 2 small poppadums. The kebab starter I had was pretty tasteless, and had no sauce. The maincourse (balti) was ok, and even though the nan and parata were good, they were small.... More

The service here was certainly quick, but the starters tasted like they came straight from the freezer and were deep fried and quickly. The main courses seemed to be comprised of spice powders chucked in a blender and quickly doused over meat. Unsurprisingly, this did not produce subtle taste and is not in fact how Indian cuisine is meant to... More

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.
