We went there three adults and a 3 years old for a dinner. As favourites of Indian cuisine, also with experience in India itself, we are always keen on these restaurants. Taj is a restaurant rather than Indian eatery. It gives importance to atmosphere and serving.
We started with complementary papadam and chutney. They were very good, HaVing the papadam tangy but not filled with black pepper.
We ordered veg biryani, bhindi and of course malai kufta which is our favourite dish. Almost every indian restaurant has it, but it is made very different. The sauce of this one was good and delecate, while the kufta itself had a bit dull taste comparing to the richness found in other variations. The other dishes were comparably good, meaning - very good level but missing the wow to get the necessary wow for the excellent.
The desert - kulfi - an ice cream Indian style was very good, and it was accompanied by complementary rice puddings, which were nice.
The disappointing point was that the spiced indian tea was only water with chai extract, and cold milk on the side. This is not more than a chai aboard an Indian train, yet every chai wala in the streets of India will make a better tea...
But overall we enjoyed it very much and as i titled it, western folks wont run away due to too much spice that is usually catered in Indian restaurants,despite it is how it should be.
