Cheap, tasty (onion pakora was great and basically a bhaji), fast service, and no deli-belly the next day. What more can you ask for? Would recommend to anyone missing Indian food whilst travelling for a long time!

Don't be fooled by the rather simple look: the food is great and after a while it's quite romantic. Staff is very friendly and fast. Don't forget the big lassi, with mango, banana and pineapple!

For a little town like Vientiane, Indian restaurants are surprisingly abundant. Most are all right. Taj Mahal is awesome! Best Aalu Paratha in Laos...without a doubt. Can't wait to go back again..

My criticism is not about the quality or taste of the food, which was fine, if one gets what one actually ordered. Rather, my complaint is with not being given what I ordered, and being charged no small amount for those missing items, on a take-away order - and staff whose English is too poor to deal with problems when...

So glad we found this place! We really fancied a curry (home comfort!) and we got just what we needed! I've never been so pleased with a curry before! Fab flavours and just the right amount of food! Please visit this place, great prices and even greater food! Don't be put off the location or the look of the place.... More

Tucked away behind the main strip this gem of Indian food is a great find. Everything is made to order from fresh ingredients. The quality in every dish really shows. The samosas are great and their saffron rice is quite special. I'll be back for sure!

This food is so yum we went back several times. So many vegetarian options. Very cheap and so tasty. Get the Mixed Veggie Korma.

I've visited Taj Mahal before a long time ago and went back here yesterday. The place still looks the same (not very interesting) and the food is still decent. I had a good meal, a very fair portion with a nice taste and some good naan with it. The Pakora was also very nice (and a good portion as well).... More

Located just behind national cultural hall. Ordered for paneer butter masala ( got paneer korma), baingan bharta ( grilled mashed aubergine with other delicious veggies and spices),fish curry, kashmiri pulao,lassi pineapple flavoured and banana flavoured. Every dish had its flaws however, baingan bharta and drinks were really really gooooood. It's a hit and miss scenario with dishes. Definitely not a... More

A simple Indian restaurant located in a very simple corner but with great food at an affordable price! The service is great! Will definitely recommend this.
