We visited this authentic Indian restaurant in central Douglas after a friends recommendation and I can honestly say we weren't disappointed. I got in touch with the staff a week or so to inform them it was my wife's 40th birthday, they were so helpful and friendly. On our arrival we were taken to our table which was fully decorated...

The off promenade location belies the quality of this charming curry house. Good food, I recommend the Vegetarian set meal, and friendly & helpful staff. Worth a look

Came here after reading other reviews on TA and was not disappointed. Another reason for coming was that they open early and after arriving on the 3pm ferry was quite hungry to say the least! Was only one in and had the "house" special which was delicious, can't remember what it was I'm afraid. Just had popadoms for starters but... More

Had the sharing meal for 2 and found the whole 3 course meal tasty, spicy and very filling. The sharing meal for 2 at £35.00 was superb value and the staff were very attentive and I would recommend this as a place to eat.

I do not usually post negative reviews, but felt it necessary on this occasion. We ordered a takeaway meal from the Taj Mahal for our weekend treat. The restaurant does not offer delivery but a third party delivery service works with them to provide this - fine, but a £5 charge to deliver within Douglas. The food arrived quickly (30... More

Been here before (a few years ago now). Food was very nice and the service a little on the slow side but it didn't detract from the overall experience. Compared to back home the price was a little on the steep side for a curry. Luckily I remembered roughly where this restaurant was as if you blink, you will miss... More

Went here to catch up with an old girlfriend. Food delish as always and because we are sadly both non wheat munchers the chef took pity on us and made wheat free popadoms. YAY. They looked like huge prawn crackers and tasted well, indian. Brilliant even better than the real things and I don't say that very often. good selection... More

Overpriced and just really unpleasant. I sent my madras back as I have had better from a supermarket curry in a can. The onion bagis were overcooked on the outside and not cooked properly at all on the inside. They did take the cost of my curry off the bill but still paid £54 for 3 of us which was... More
