We arrived around 8 on a Saturday night and took the last available table. Service was spot on, quiet and attentive, not intrusive at all. Between the 4 of us we had 2 of the 2 person combinations and were very pleased indeed. House wine very fine. Indian ice cream excellent. Great value, would definitely return

To start of with, I got confused by the fact that we wanted to eat at Taj Mahal Lounge, accidentally made a reservation at the Taj Mahal, which is a different address (house numbrer) and a different phone number from Taj Mahal Lounge but both are in the same street. We couldn't get a hold of the Taj Mahal Lounge,... More

Nice Indian restaurant. Many choices however we missed thali at the menu. Staff took its time, we had to wait very long. Food was not bad but we expected more of it. This is supposed to be the best Indian restaurant but we did not understand why.

I went here with a friend to try it out on my quest to find a good Indian restaurant in Utrecht. The prices are a bit on the high side, but the quality is as good as your average delivery shop. I've eaten in most indian restaurants in Utrecht, but this wouldn't be one I return too.

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!
