Friendly, helpful service, take away food prepared while you sip a free coffee, nice quiet dining ambience, and delicious Indian food. For vegetarians caught in the centre of Seoul, it can be hard to find vegetarian food (the temple food is further away), and Taj is the solution. Meat and seafood... read more

Friendly, helpful service, take away food prepared while you sip a free coffee, nice quiet dining ambience, and delicious Indian food. For vegetarians caught in the centre of Seoul, it can be hard to find vegetarian food (the temple food is further away), and Taj is the solution. Meat and seafood also available.

Having read several good reviews on this restaurant, my husband and I decided to have a meal there last night before going to the theatre, in Myeongdong. What a disappointment! Although the place itself is beautifully presented in true Indian style, the service was terrible with miserable looking waiters who could not even offer a smile. One sat on his... More

Wonderful staff, excellent service, and great food. I ordered the Lamb Vindaloo, house wine, and garlic naan. After feeling my face sweat I knew the Vindaloo was spivey. Two... More

I have been to Seoul two times staying for 1 week each time. I had most of my meals in this restaurant during both my trips. The food is good and the restaurant ambience is quite decent. I would like to recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for Indian food near the Myeongdong area.

The restaurant has good atmosphere and good service. However, the food lacks the special soul I love about Indian food. The value for money was not so god either. The menu has a lot of choices, but after trying 5 curries, I guess the remaining courses are similar.
