“OK but not great”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We have been here once and it was a very hectic restaurant without a special atmosphere :

atmosphere : 2 points
food : 4 points
service : 3 points
friendly : 4 points

We got papadan as a starter and when the main dish arrived I wanted to clear the rests of the papadan but they only let it on our table.

The garlic nan was very oily and we ate only part of it. The safran rice was not right warm but the main dish was tasty and good.

“Awesome Food, Service Has Room For Improvement”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My girlfriend and I dined at the Taj Palace on our recent stay in Ao Nang. We were craving Indian food and saw the reviews on here so had to try it out.

We arrived at the restaurant where a gentleman was outside on the sidewalk who greeted us and showed us to our table. The restaurant was not busy yet as we were there slightly early. Our server was very friendly, professional, and answered all of our questions and took care of our requests, such as spice levels etc. As the restaurant was not busy, our food came out very fast. We ordered samosa's for starters and a mix of different dishes and rice as well. Everything was exceptional and tasted great.

We had a couple issues towards the end of our meal. There is a TV at the back of the restaurant and all the workers seemed to forget that we were there and payed more attention to the wrestling that was on. The awesome service at the beginning was almost non existent towards the end, we had to flag down someone to get more drinks and our pile of plates at the end sat there for over 10 minutes until we asked for our bill. The other issue with the place is that if your paying with credit card, you have to walk a block down the road to a Suit and Tailor shop to pay! A bit of an inconvenience but not that big of a deal.

The food here was awesome, one of if not the best Indian food that we've ever had. The value was very good as well, everything was well priced. The service at the beginning was great but definitely lacked towards the end and walking down the street to pay was a bit strange as well, but would definitely be willing to try this place out again.

“Delicious Indian food.”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love Indian Food and dined at Taj Palace my first night in Ao Nang Beach. They have a variety of other food options but I opted for the Idian menu. The food was delicious, the staff were kind and accommodating. I had a tough time deciding what to choose on the menu.....luckily I was in town for 4 nights and every night I chose Taj Palace. I chose both meat and vegetarian options...all very good. The delicious food combined with the friendly staff is a welcomed retreat for any traveler.

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were a bunch of 3 friends who visited Krabi for the first time and our travel agent suggested having our meals at Taj Palace, since we were vegetarians and there were no other great options there. We were very impressed with the hospitality and service. The ambience was average though, but the food more than made up for it. The highlight would be the Paneer Butter Masala and Dal Makhani which was as good as the best in Bangalore. Worth giving it a try!
