Had the okra and potato, samosas and lassi, all for about $5. Everything was tasty, and the service was fast and efficient. One complaint: The salty lassi wasn't salty :-(

This place is definitely not the best Indian place you will find, but it is a pretty decent place. I was travelling across Laos and had strong craving for Indian foo. LP had recommended only Taj Mahal as an Indian option. As mentioned by other reviewers, this place is little tricky to find. The place looks ordinary and moderately clean.... More

The food here is incredibly bland. I'm sure it all comes out of the same pot, the sauce is the same whether you order korma, masala or any other variety of curry. Didn't like the saffron rice it was stuck together and was laced with onion and other in identifiable ingredients. I just prefer it plain. Sure its cheap but... More

Nice little Indian restaurant, bit tricky to find but worth it. The food is good (not amazing but generally very good) and cheap as chips. I’d recommend asking for stuff a little spicier as there was no chili heat in any of the dishes we ordered. Overall great value.

This looks like a street restaurant with plastic chairs and greasy tables, but the food is actually pretty good. Not one of the best Indians I had, but the food is very good value for money (less than 80.000 kip for 2 with 2 beers). Service is fine.

Even though it is hard to break away from my favorites, I've been trying to order random and different things off the menu, just to see if they fail at anything. Not yet, and I have eaten here at least 20 times. The service is always quick. The food is always hot. The bill is always way less than you... More

The Taj Mahal is not much to look at. In fact, you may be a little off-put by the plastic table cloths and rather dilapidated look of the place. Rest assured, the food that is served out of the kitchen is absolutely delicious. Unlike Nazeem, which served me the same sauce around different vegetables claiming to be different dishes, the...

Loved the quality of the Indian Food here. It is located centrally in Vientiane, looking at another review who stated it looked alot like a shed from the outside and we would agree. WWould certainly recommend it for the good menu, service and food.
