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

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).
