Thus is a tiny Indian restaurant in town (Oranjestad). The food is excellent and so is the service. When visiting this place one will return.

I highly recommend the Taj Mahal Restaurant. Their food is excellent and served as you likes it. We all know, Indian meal has lot of hot pepper. Although this is their culture, they always ask if you want your food with no pepper, mild or hot and you get it as you want.Now I am costom to eat light pepper... More

Not a bad Indian, in fact possibly one of the best outside of Bradford I have been to. Run by a Sikh family, the wood was excellent, the fish masala was very excellent. if you want an Indian on Aruba the choice is limited but this is worth a visit, for the food alone. Service was OK and the décor... More

This is the best Indian food on the island. I am crazy about the curry shrimp and my husband loves the chicken tikka masala. The garlic naan is awesome and the raita is perfect. One of my favorite restaurants on the island. Great service! We eat here at least once a month. Super yummy!

We decided to check this place out based on all the high ratings here on TripAdvisor. We are Indian and know good Indian food. This place is average at best, and that's being generous. We tried the Hot & Sour soup, it was extremely spicy with an overdose of black pepper. Our entrees were Dal Tadka and Chicken Tikka masala.... More

The service is extremely poor, especially the junior server - even though the evening hours are until 10 pm local time, she told us that they will not serve anything if we don't show up by 9 p.m.- what an attitude! ......then the manager said that she will not honor the free ad that says a free dessert with the...
