Cuisines: Middle Eastern
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Ein Bokek is a hotel complex by the Dead Sea with few independent restaurants. The Taj Mahal is one of the only free standing restaurants and it is a more pleasant, cheaper and better quality place to eat than the hotel restaurants.

Taj Mahal is one of the few choices if you want to eat outside the resorts.

The menu is simple and short. Grilled meat and arabic salad and starters.

The atmosphere is curious, like a bedouin tent.

Wow, what a fun little place in Ein Bokek! This is an outdoor restaurant with oriental style eating - low tables and cushion seating. We had warm and attentive service and the food was both delicious and well-priced, served in generous portions. Not at all like many of the more expensive options in town. It was easy to relax here and linger over your meal and no loud music was blaring throughout the meal. It is a bit tricky to find this restaurant however. You can see it from the main road but need to take a back road over an unpaved, rocky area to reach it. If you are walking, you will need a flashlight to find your way.

Given the fact I was in Ein Bokek for a few days,I had the opportunity to explore the ins and outs of this Dead Sea Riviera city.
Needless to mention that this restaurant located on a hill,stands out as my preferred gastronomic choice.
The Staff ,the atmosphere ,the food...the whole experience is absolutely unique and unforgettable.
The decor is far from what the name suggests. It is not indian,but purely middle eastern.They truly do not know how else to satisfy their patrons.
In comparison to the "institution like" restaurants located in the hotels such as the Crowne Plaza ,the Isrotel Dead Sea etc...I would not waste my time looking elsewhere.
This restaurant is a true jewel of a place in a city where there's nothing much to do at night and whose quality of night entertainment is less than mediocre.

Nice place with good service. I eat there a steak with humus / falafel and salat. Nice and tasty. Of course no gourmet food. Looks more like a beduin tent with oriental lights. You can eat and drink. Of course you can also order a nargila for 25 nis.

The restaurant is right beside the renamed leonardo inn on top of a kind of hill. Right beside the pool of the leonardo inn.

Opened till late night
