“Excellent!”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

As a five year resident of Amsterdam, I have not been to an Indian restaurant so far. Strange since I have been to the country twice and love the food. So my first Amsterdam Indian experience happend two weeks ago at Taj Mahal, although I think they changed the name to Taj Indian. Anyway, went tonight again, what can I say, food is great. Try the mix starter plate. Personal fav the butter chicken, (damn forgot the name spicy curry with potato), and the tandoori kebab or chicken. Everything is tasty, well prepared, and the presentation is nice.

The service is excellent: attentive, very friendly and welcoming, and several times asked whether things were fine in a non-annoying fashion. Restaurant is located on a popular square with bars, so good place to enjoy a drink prior of after your dinner.

(Very) Highly recommendable, perhaps make an appointment during the weekends!

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Having jumped off the tram nearby we used tripadvisor to find a good local restaurant. The Taj Mahal was the closest and was already highly recommended so we headed on in!
Wow......we were very very impressed. The service was excellent. The food outstanding! The best indian restaurant we have eaten in. The prawn madras was first class!
If you are in Amsterdam and enjoy excellent indian food, then I would HIGHLY recommend the Taj Mahal!

Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

I have eaten in many Indian restaurants in Amsterdam as I live here. But the food here is really good. And their kip tikaa maasala is one of the best I have eaten in my life (even better than many places in India).

Reviewed March 23, 2014

The best indian restaurant we tasted. Food is delicious and service is perfect. We arrived without having booked. And of course, the restaurant was full. The owner moved some tables and chairs to allow us to eat. This restaurant could be a trip resaon.
