“Overall, not a place we'll return to”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Perhaps Shepherd Market is not the place to go for Indian in Mayfair.

We tried New Tajmahal and were very happy with the service but underwhelmed by our meals. The Chicken Tikka Masala was spicy, but it seemed that the dish depended on the heat of the spice for its flavor as other than the heat, it was rather bland. Presentation-wise, it arrived with a nice drizzle of cream on top but with dish and the cream appeared a little dried out, as though the dish had been sitting under a heat lamp for awhile prior to being served.

Overall, not a place we'll return to.

“Avoid even if you have to starve”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Terrible food and horrible service. One of the worst food joints ever visited. I wonder how people can open restaurants in high brow areas with all the associated costs and then serve bad food...........maybe the fact that London has thousands of new arrivals everyday and if they get 20 suckers a day....they can keep the place running forever.

“Simple, easy, small”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Must be one of the area's smaller restaurants (how does it survive?). Typical Indian restaurant, similar to thousands on the High Streets. When all else around is full there might be a spare seat here.
