“Worth the time spent finding it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I like Indian food and this place was good, although not a large selection I have found typical in most Indian restaurants in the States. We had the aloo dish and the chicken piryani and very much liked both. The rice, naan and lassi were good, too. No complaints - I certainly would seek this place out again and eat there. As I understand there are not a lot of good restaurants in Algiers, don't waste a lot of time looking around. This is great.

“I really think this is going to be my favorite restaurant in Algiers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I love indian food and was really suprised to find such a tasty good food. The atmosphere is great and the place is neat, clean and warm. Having a non smoking room is a plus and having it right in front of the kitchen is also quite entertaining. It is not cheap cheap but I kind of feel it is in line with the country and the same level other restaurants.

“A fair choice in Algeria, since not much of real good restautants in the City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Good restaurant, food is normal, service quiet good, choice of dishes also. It is very far from the other indian restautants around the world, specially the ones in Dubai. But for a night out and a change from hotel restaurants, this is a good choice. No idea about the prices as we were invited for business dinner, but it doesn't seem expensive,

“Taj Mahal - like Real Taj Mahal !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Algiers is a beautiful city but evenings and eating out are dull and devoid of options. Taj Mahal is like an oasis in the desert. Food is very good and service excellent. The staff is smiling and very hospitable. The Algerian man at the gate speaks Hindi and is full of warmth - an extra touch to the fare, really ! All said, I think the Rogan Josh has a scope for improvement. Their mixed kebab platter (sizzler) and Dal Makhni are really masterpiece. Yes, as some reviewer said, adding Pappadoms and some mango chutney would take Taj to even sublime levels. And all this in Algeria !

“One of the better choices in Algiers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

There are not a lot of eating options in Algiers. It becomes doubly difficult if you are vegetarian like me. A few colleagues took me to Taj Mahal during my last visit to Algiers and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. The food tasted quite authentic and the service was good.

We ordered a number of dishes and were not disappointed. I recommend it for your next evening out in Algiers.
