The food was great! We had supper here one night and received good service and we all loved the food. Of all the restaurants that we went to in the 2 days there, this was absolutely the best.

This restaurant is situated by the pool. So that, it has really nice view. It is well decorated. For my opinion, the food is just the average and the service does not go enough for the fine dining restaurant.

Careless and Clumsy services. All the staffs neither pay attention nor care the customers. Food is OK. However, orders were taken wrong. Servers have no idea about what they are serving. We had to ask a couple times just to get napkins.

The Taj is a winner on location (overlooking the lake), food (we had terrific butter chicken) and service. The decor is very pleasing and although it is not a budget restaurant, we felt we enjoyed value for money.

Restaurant is the one of the very few places to have a lunch. This is reflected mainly in the prices. Pros: 1. Oasis of European meals on an unexpected place 2. Very stylish interior in colonial style Cons: 1. Very poor English which may result...More
