Good selection of food, well cooked. Moderate to expensive for Asia, but as it is one of the very few decent restaurants in Brunei, it is acceptable.

Our friends.... regulars at this place recommended Le Taj to savour the cuisine and we found it to be different from other Indian restaurants in Brunei. The food presentation was there and we could literally see what we'd be eating unlike in most places, all the ingredients in the food were either mashed up due to overcooking or consistent reheating! The Garlic Naan Breads were baked just right, portion was large enough to accommodate us... and an order of Pilau Rice to compliment the bread as there were 4 of us. We ordered Lamb Dryghon, Prawn Vindaloo and Chicken Muskan and all the dishes were of the right texture and flavour. What made our evening pleasant and enjoyable was the privacy of a private room. We'll defintely come back for more!

Le Taj is the place when you want Indian cuisine with a touch of fancy schmancy.

Its only weakness is not that Le Taj's food is not good but with Brunei's abundance of Indian restaurants, its fair to say that food wise are probably better e.g. Rang Mahal's Butter Chicken.

However the good thing about Le Taj, contrary to the place, the price is very reasonable. You can have a normal delicious meal with the Nan, paratha, roti kosong or telor with drinks and it'll only cost you like roughly BND5-6.

Plus I believe its way better than Tandoori.com.

On top of that, if you're lucky you get the window view of which I really like - not that you can eat the view.


Food wise, I believe the condiments are always good. Lamb or tandoori chicken briyani is fairly consistent.

Why I give Le Taj 4/5 here is because its one of my favourite Ramadhan restaurants. At BND15 you're spoiled with unlimited tandoori chicken, grilled chicken wings oily fragrant vegetables, roti kosongs, lamb rogan josh or whatever related, something of beef, something of fish or prawns and for my mom who prefers Italian over Indian - some normal pizzas from Capers next door. Don't expect much for desserts though.

The food here was good, with plenty of choice. The atmosphere is also pleasant. There was no provided sauce with the pakoras which I thought was a bit ordinary. The mains were a decent size. However, it was near-impossible to get a waitress's attention when we wanted another drink, the same when we were ready to leave. I'd have given a 5 if the staff didn't make us feel that they were doing us a favour just by being there.

The best Indian food you will find in Brunei.
Restaurant is very clean and spacious. Staff are pleasant.
Menu is vast.
Best is to get a few dishes and share. They are big portions and really tasty.
I have eaten there 5 times and will definitely go back when i am there again.
