“Great place, but very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This place is situated behind the Heineken Experience. The waiters are very polite. The place is nice and always busy. Food fresh and delicious. We have ordered fabulous starters mixed (5 starters, including chicken, fish cake) and noddles with chicken. price: 27 euro for each person

“Taj indian Restaurant Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Food was kind of standard Indian fare - properly done. However, the presentations were unique with on the table heating trays for each entrée. Highly recommend this if you like Indian.

“Good resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Loved this resturant. Excellent service and good food. Could be spicier though, the only thing I can mention that could have been better. Cosy atmosphere.

“Fine, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

The staff are very nice but the food is not nearly as good as people have written here. Curries have okay flavor, but could be spicier and more diverse since the dishes all taste fairly similar.

Singh H, Eigenaar at Taj Mahal, responded to this review, July 8, 2014
Hello,

Thank you for loving our service and regarding the food, we provide varieties of curries and also make spicier as per the guests' request which was not in your case as well as the food you ordered might have required similar recipes (Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Karahi). Hope you visit us again sometime in future and we can suggest you the dishes which have different tastes.

Regards,
Management,
Taj Indian Restaurant,
Amsterdam
