The food in this Indian restaurant is not bad at all. The portions where relatively big, compared to the price. However.... I didnt have the feeling of tasting Indian spices. It tasted a bit Dutch. The dessert (Indian icecream) was nothing special. We ordered but didnt like it.

We enjoyed every bit of the meal. Could have been more spicy but that's the only comment we could make. Pleasant atmosphere and reservation is needed.

I had a lamb dish recommended by the waiter and was very pleased. I have eaten Indian in many places and enjoy the variety of ways to prepare dishes having the same name. The rice had more "sweet" spices than I am used to but enjoyed it nonetheless.

So i just moved to Utrecht and I was looking to order some food to my place. I found Taj Mahal on the deliveroo website. I ordered "tikka masala" from them. When I got the food, the rice had a funny, quite disgusting smell, but it tasted alright. The Tikka masala sauce was the worst part, at first it didn't... More

We were walking around looking for something for dinner and remembering seeing an Indian restaurant along the Single. As we were headed to it, we ran into this place and liked the menu. We were seated right away and got our drinks. The food was very nice, but I was a little unhappy with the service. Our server was great... More

We didn't enjoy the visits to this place. It is normal to end up smelling a lot like food when visiting an Indian, but this was something else. The food is fair, but the curries look and tasted artificial.

We were seated straight away, despite the restaurant starting to get busy, around 6.30pm.. we had our drinks served within minutes and our order was taken by a very polite waitress. The staff were very nice but were definitely very busy, it being a Friday evening. Our starters arrived after about 30 minutes, but they were so good, the wait... More

If you are not to critical with food then you will love this place. I have tried so many Indian restaurants that I can have now an opinion. It's good but nothing out of the ordinary. We had a menu for 2 for 52€, Price is OK.

A good meal, but very expensive. Service was OK, the food was great, and the price was a bit high for what I ordered. I seriously enjoyed the food.

We had a reservation for 2. When we arrived, the stuff left us standing in the middle of the restaurant waiting for instructions on where to sit. We where waiting patiently while the waiters were asking us to move from side to side as they were walking around with the hot plates. After 10 minutes we were sent to the... More
