This is Harpenden's first / oldest Indian restaurant. We ate here with friends and everyone enjoyed their food. If you are vegetarian like myself, and see a dish on the menu you like the sound of, they will substitute the meat for paneer cheese. I like a hot dish and tried their "Nashlee" dish with paneer, which was delicious. It... More

I visited New Taj Mahal with a few friends last week. The food and service was outstanding as you would expect from this restaurant. The waiters were very attentive, the food was fresh and well presented and served in good time. Highly recommend their Murug Tawa.

As always best restaurant in town had a nice mealWe have been going to taj mahal since it opened many years ago and keep going back! We had a takeaway and went there to eat recently, and it's still as good as ever. We have occasionally tried others, but haven't found anywhere as good locally.

Visited with mates, our table was the only one occupied apart from a table of 2. Pretty straightforward menu. I asked for an off menu option (Lamb Achari) which was no problem for the kitchen. Food was OK, nothing special. Service was adequate.

The restaurant needs to be refurbished as it looks a little tired. The food is good, but doesn't stand out. The service was prompt
