We were meandering round the streets of Bordeaux and came across this restaurant. We ordered starters (vegetable samosas and tandoori chicken) these were served with a small selection of pickles and a naan bread. The main courses were gambas Marsala (the prawns were served with both heads and tails on) and we also ordered chicken tandoori which were served with... More

A group of us arrived at this busy restaurant and, we were served our food very quickly. However, the chicken jalfrezi which 3 of us ordered was so bland it was a joke to call it a jalfrezi. There were no chillis in the curry and the sauce was thin and tasteless. When complaining to the waiter and subsequently the... More

This restaurant came as a delightful surprise after reading a few negative reviews on trip advisor. We said whatever, give it a go. The positives are unique Indian flavour in the tikka chicken masala and lamb rogan josh. The mixed vegetable entree was beautiful perfectly cooked, pan fried. I have lived in Malaysia as a child, lived in the United... More

People who enjoy good ambiance and authentic Indian food Taj Mehal is place for them. Prices are reasonable compared to other fine dinning resturants. I love their Mango Lassi , Gulab JAmun and BBQ . Highly recommended.

We ate lunch here on a whim, not checking TA reviews. Check the reviews! The food was above average Indian fare and the service was on par for France but...we were charged for the naan bread, each piece! Unheard of in the US. The least expensive half bottle of wine was $11 when it is no more than $8 anywhere... More

A very well appointed and large curry house but a bit disappointing on the food front. Service is a bit iffy but the food was underwhelming and a bit dry.

Although this was a busy restaurant and appears to be popular, we were not impressed. My husband ordered prawn raita for a starter which was a dish of a few small prawns and lots of cucumber in a very wet and thin yoghurt. Very bland. I ordered onion bhagi and was served onion rings in a thick heavy batter with... More

Difficult to find a decent curry in France, but the Taj Mahal manages. The set menu (during the week) offers very good value for money, with reasonable wine and beer costs. Nan and poppadoms also well cooked. Service we have always found to be good, and the ambience and location are excellent.
