It took over an hour for the food to arrive and when it did it was cold. When the waiter was called over there was not even a hint of an apology nor even an offer to warm it up. On leaving the restaurant another...waiter was even ruder when we were having a cigarette outside and even threatened to call the police. They clearly don't know what customer service is.More

Absolutely the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever been too , the food was brilliant and cooked to perfection and it definitely is a must go too place when in Bucharest if you’re a Indian food lover if I had one little criticism it would be...that I had to go search for a waiter to pay the bill but overall 10/10More

My partner and I love Indian food and up until today Taj was our favourite choice in Bucharest. We ate in the restaurant a few times and ordered take away a lot of other times. Our experience from today was so disappointing that I am...not willing to ever order from Taj again. On one hand, the take away boxes they shipped the food in today are half the size they used to be (but of course - the prices remained the same). Secondly, I specifically asked to not have cheese in my meal, but have potatoes instead, like I always do when I order Palak Paneer (I love this dish so much that i never order other meal). I received big chunks of cheese in my meal, which I could have understood if these chunks were not occupying 75% of the takeaway box, leaving little to no space to the main meal which is the spinach sauce. I am disappointed by the fact that I sense that this chef or restaurant owner is enjoying some popularity and therefore feels like he can fool customers as he wishes. In other words no, I wouldn’t recommend this place anymore. It used to be great, but it’s going downhill now.More

I came back after many years and the experience was disappointing. I knew since the beginning that the look is not the plus of this restaurant, so I don't really care about that, but we had to wait more than 40 minutes to receive our...food, the food wasn't that good as it was before and the prices were very high. Plus they did not had everything from the menu and I had to switch my order.More

Tasty Indian food in Bucharest. Unassuming spot on a main road near the Cathedral. Well made food, smaller portions and rice not included with entrees.

The food was tasty, plentiful and good value. The lentil soup I can still remember months later, one of the main reasons I will return to Bucharest soon!. Only Tip is that I'm not sure you can pay by card, but there is a cash...machine next door.More

Unfortunately after eating here for several years, and this being by far my favorite Indian restaurant in Bucharest, today I was very disappointed. We ordered 3 kind of main courses + bread and the bread was the only decent thing we could eat. The lamb...was so hard to eat, it was full of cartilages, the sauce of one of the courses was extremely sour, like it had a lot of vinegar in it.More

Was only in Bucharest a few days but ate here x2 nights. Staff are fantastic and food was outrageously delicious I’d eat here many times a week if I lived here. 10/10

We went there for the weekly Saturday event "All you can eat brunch". The worst idea ever. We booked for 80 RON. Because it was 8th of March they changed the price to 100 without even announcing it. Even though they have called us for...confirmation. As for the food, it was awfully presented and cold. The only Indian dish was chicken and lamb with some sauce. The bread was cold and had the same taste as a regular bread from a supermarket. There was some fried fish and chicken, again cold and with no taste, either dry or too moist due to the fried oil. The sweets were regular tarts and mini-chocolate cake that can be found again, in any supermarket. The drinks were tap water with chlorine taste and wine (red and white) which were cheap. The event had "live music" but only in a separate room which was separated by a door so we could not hear it if it was closed.More

The food was great. The only problem was that cheated on the bill.They added 2 items that were more tan 10% of the total value. We only realized this after leaving and giving more than 10% tips. When confrunted they acted like it was nothing...wrong with him "accidentally" adding things on the bill. Very good food but this is unacceptable.More

I love this restaurant. It never disappoints. Every Sunday they have brunch from 12 to 17. It's 80 RON per person and there are plenty of dishes to choose from, dessert and live music. It is a place we revisit with pleasure
