“Ok Indian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2015

Came here with some friends and ordered a number of curries and breads. The naan was very good, but for the most part the curries were ok, but nothing exciting. Stuff were friendly and prices were reasonable. Best dish was the dal.

“Great Indian restaurant in New Farm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2015

Nice old shop front in New Farm that fills up quickly so bookings are recommended.

The service was pleasent enough and the decor modern with sufficient Indian influence as you would expect. There were a couple of small tables outside but not many so most of the dining was indoors.

Food was tasty and came out quickly despite the fact they were very busy. You order the mains and the rice is complimentary and if you run own just ask for more at no cost.

They offer a limit range of beer and wine in house or you can bring your own beer and wine and be charged $4 pp corkage, the best of both worlds really.

The only negative here was the beef vindaloo was nice and hot but the beef was dry. The chicken dishes were better as well as the lamb. Garlic Naan is to die for!!

“Best Naan bread in Brisbane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2015

Just dined at the Taj Mahal. The pappadums were crisp tasty and not oily, served with mint yoghurt, a nice touch. The butter chicken was perfect, the fish curry only average. The sauce was delicious but the fish overwhelmingly fishy. Best of all was the Naan bread fresh and hot from the oven. The worst thing was the air conditioning set at sub zero temperature, couldn't wait to get out of there. So no desert or coffee for us.

This is the best quality Indian food in Brisbane bar none. Best butter chicken I have ever had and the Saag is awesome too.

“Worst Indian Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2015

This restaurant had most ratings on eatnow.com and decided to order dinner. The chicken tikka was a joke, probably old, left overs. The biryani was glorified tomato rice. The goan fish curry was fish chunks thrown in tomato sauce straight off can. It ruined the appetite for us and probably never again! I think it is worthwhile to see pictures of dishes prior to ordering on takeaway
