Had lunch today at Taj Mahal, as I am easily seduced by Indian food. This was a total surprise. It was the best chicken curry I have ever tasted, and I've lived in India. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

First of all, this place is in a great location, close to the Parque Calderon. I ordered the channa paneer dish that was really tasty, and garlic naan. I've never had such bad naan. it was thick, salty, and inedible. Service was good however.

Prices are reasonable, as is the quality. You can always get in, and their service is reasonable as well.
