I love Indian cuisine and I must say this restaurant offers a great variety of Indian specialties, some of them even not so common. Food presentation is nice, service is gentle and accurate. Having read that Indian food in Germany tends to be rather bland I was very impressed with the food I tried at this restaurant. The lamb curry... More

Taj Mahal has nice food, friendly people and excellent location in the old city of Trier. We will go there again next time we are in Trier.

We arrived at 9pm on a Sunday and they were about to close, but we could still order, which was a relief. We enjoyed our curries a lot; my girlfriend had a mango chicken curry and I had a 'taj mahal' curry that was pretty spicy, but good to combine with beer. Friendy service, good price; I can recommend this... More

Free poppadoms, rice and naan included with every main dish. Curries are flavoursome and rich tasting. Meat is good quality. Service was friendly and quick considering there were only three waiting staff working in a full restaurant. Not quite enough rice given for four people to share, and the second order of rice did not arrive.

Delicious food, friendly service and reasonable prices. It does get busy - speaks for the quality. I would recommend the series of dishes cooked on sizzling iron plates.

Taj Mahal is the best Indian restaurant in Trier like the Porta Nigra is the best Roman sight. It pales in comparison with the real thing. Let me explain. Porta Nigra is impressive for Trier. Anyone who had ever been to Rome would realize that it is extremely lame compared to Rome and it's sights. The same for this restaurant.... More

This restaurant is upstairs, semi formal atmosphere, seems very clean, the service is friendly and prompt. The food is very good, naan is delish, the spice lovers can be satisfied, the drinks leave a bit to be desired...I have had better salted lassi, better chai masala and better wine, but the food is spot on. I think this is a... More

Went with a good friend. When we got there we did not have a reservation. But they found a table for us and said we have an hour and a half before they needed the table. I was very grateful they allowed us to sit and eat. The food was awesome and the service was very good. Very pleased with... More

Located in one of the shopping streets the Taj Mahal requires climbing up some steep stairs before you get to the restaurant. We received a warm and friendly welcome. It was fairly busy, but the waiter kept his composure. The food was ample and very good. Clean and with a nice atmosphere.
