“Good place to go for more than just Indian Food”
Review of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal
Ranked #10 of 47 Restaurants in Bujumbura
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Taj Mahal has amazingly friendly and "caring" service. The owner/manager makes certain to personally check that your needs are being met. The staff are equally welcoming and "at your service". The menu offers an enormous array of not just Indian, but Chinese and African (Burundian) cuisine, so it's a great place to go when with Burundian friends and colleagues who are not the adventurous type when it comes to food. Quality of food is pretty good (but I'm biaised, having lived in worked in many places in East and Southern Africa where excellent Indian food abounds), serving sizes are huge. Wear long shirts/trousers and take mosquito repellent, as the seating is outdoors (but very tastefully arranged). Will no doubt go back on my next trip to Bujumbura.

I went to the Taj Mahal with a few Indian colleagues. Great food. I ate the Chicken Tikka Masala. Staff was polite, especially considering we arrived at 10pm. Current ownership has owned the restaurant for two years. Would definitely eat there again and recommend.

The food has been disappointing three out of the four times I have been to this restaurant. The time it was good was when I went for lunch. I do not know if they have a different chef for dinner and lunch but the food is very different.

There was a time when the food had a distinct taste of chlorine, we complained and the explanation was the tap water had chlorine, however the manager did try to replace the dish but we had already lost our appetite.

The service has always been good.

This is not the only Indian restaurant in Bujumbura.

This is the only indian restaurant i know in bujumbura and have always been going there on every trip. The food taste is good, ambience is pretty average. Some of the dishes can take really long to cook so as beforehand. Overall id recommend this place if you're looking for indian or chinese food.
