This was a fantastic find during our trip to Aruba. The food was really, really good and we recommend this place to anyone. Prices were reasonable and everything was delicious! Well worth it!

Taj Mahal is located smack in the heart of Oranjestad. It's just behind the big pink Royal Plaza Mall. The restaurant is small and intimate and serves some of the bets Indian food I have ever had anywhere. Jus ask for how spicy you want your food and they'll get it right on. Food lovers know all about Indian specialties so I'll just say this: you must try the garlic nan bread and the dal makhani!

When we moved to Aruba in 2010, our only exposure to Indian food had been an overpriced, overspiced buffet in Boise, Idaho, which was clearly not representative of Indian cuisine. With our introduction to good Indian food at Taj, we have become addicted to such timeless favorites as Butter Chicken and Naan (buttered naan, just like mother used to make, as my Indian colleagues in Aruba used to coo). We have since moved to the South Pacific, where we have fallen in love with another local Indian haunt and many new dishes, but we will always be thankful to Natasha's family for the great food at Taj! This is where my one year old, who was born in Aruba, fell in love with Indian food; and to this day he will not eat the roti our house girl makes unless we cover it in our local curry. This is even where I introduced my ultra-American white in-laws to Indian food. You may want to go to Tandoor Palace in the high rise area, which is owned by the same family, as they have a buffet (the prices are bit higher). Our only complaint was that they did not open early enough in the evening for us to always get our butter chicken fix. So go and enjoy!

We have been here a few times, on separate occasions- and bave to say this little Indian restaurant is a gem! The food is consistently good and always fresh. They have a great selection of vegetarian appetizers and entrees. If you are craving something a little different and are burnt out on italian/mexican food, try this place! You won't be disappointed.
