I have tried over 10 Indian restaurants in Cape Town and by far Taj Mahal in Hout Bay is by far the best. Amazing prices, friendly staff and curries with pure Indian flavors. Even though strictly Halaal so no alcohol sold or allowed it is...definitly worth a visit or even for take aways. Can highly recommend.More

Stopped by for some naan and rotti’s after work. Waited 45mins and when I arrived home it was awful. Dough was old and cooked in old oil. It was cold too. Waiting would have been fine if the food was good. I will never go...back.More

Been there last week and we were a little disappointed to be honest. I asked for spicy, it was weak, the taste was sort of neutral. Service was good, just not my type of Indian restaurant

I order vegetarian take-aways from this restaurant regularly. The food quality is good and the flavours tasty. It's on the spicy side of mild, so bear that in mind in making your choices. Our favourite is the palak paneer. The bhangan bharata (aubergine) is also...good.More

The food is okay but way to expensive for what you get. They don't serve alcohol probably good if you are a muslim. I am not.

A very spur of the moment decision to make a stop here for a late dinner yesterday evening. Not at all disappointed in the food. Lamb Buna Gosht with Garlic Naan bread and Lamb Biryani (usually my favourite and what I'll judge to the extreme...haha). Was extremely tasty with an amazing combination of spices. One of the very few restaurants who bother adding potato! Only little qualm would be a bit of fat on the meat piecea but otherwise soft, tendy & tasty. Decor however is lacking as well as the overall atmosphere. Deathly quiet. Half an hour into our visit we got some Indian music. I do have the entertainer app purchased for January but was told that it wasn't yet valid. That is technically a personal ripoff as the restaurant is meant to be a participant but the prices are good & won't break the bank. Virgin cocktails are really great especially the Chilli Lovebite. Also really good samoosa starters!More
