One of the very affordable and good Indian Restaurant with a good variety of food in Bologna. Enjoyed the food and the service from the staff. They do offer take away and also deliver for a nominal price. Do try their Thursday Buffet, and eat all you can.

We didn't had Indian food since the whole week. So we went there with quite a lot expectations. The owner is basically from Pakistan. So, he doesn't know probably actually India food taste. However, his hospitality was good. I would generally avoid this restaurant due to limited choice of food and taste. But, if u really want to try Indian... More

Being in Bologna for 3 weeks, we decided to go out for a family meal. Indian/Pakistani restaurants are very limited, so Taj Mahal was the option. The food is overpriced, portions are medium, not generous. Service didn't come with a smile and the seating was very uncomfortable, not impressed at all!

It was a quiet place with descent food. They didn't have an entree we wanted on the menu and they made it for us. Not the best Indian food I have had but not bad.

The food was excellent with great flavours and fresh ingredients. The house wine was only 4 euro for a half litre, and was very nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant to travelers who would like a change while in Bologna. The service was fast and friendly.

The food was ok, not bad, but nothing special. Ambiance was good. But I was seated in a narrow passageway, with people waiters constantly rushing buy, and my chair was very upright and uncomfortable. I would go again, but I will make sure I sit somewhere else.

We ordered lamb curry which included more than half beef, considering we have one Indian friend! Palak paneer with no paneer at all. Alu paratha and nang are poorly prepared. I would definitely not recommend this place!

Description
The Taj Mahal restaurant is among the top 5 best restaurants in Italy and among the top 10 largest. It is a local peak, one of the best exponents of Indian cuisine, including dishes from the Mughal tradition and that tandori. Fine food cooked tandoori, with soft meat, marinated in balancing sauce and cooked properly. The bread (nan) simple or stuffed, as still warm dip in the narrow and aromatic sauces. The attention is especially paid to the quality of food and care. You can choose among the dishes on our à la carte menu, or choose one of our theme nights. The magic of Indian cuisine is all in the spices. Many spices are digestive, other regulate liver function, others have disinfectant properties or toning. All find their place in the daily diet. Immerse yourself in this fascinating atmosphere. Discover the spicy flavors of traditional Indian cuisine tasting its typical dishes, prepared for you by our Indian chefs. Indian cuisine is served, right here in Bologna. Enjoy typical Indian dishes made with meat or fish. Specialities include the Taj Mahal Ke - bite-size chicken pieces served with a variety of condiments such as Indian cheese, curries and sauces like the almond and coconut cream. Business history Established in 1998. Hospitality is made more sacred to an Indian. When an Indian receives a guest first you offer them food. In traditional Indian cooking and feeding much more mean that feed and please the palate. According to Ayurveda (science of life), the traditional Indian medicine for over 5000 years ago, it combines "the art and science of living", the power is the basic element of prevention. Follow the dietary principles of Ayurvedic medicine is used to maintain the well-being, the right balance between body and spirit, to cure diseases. new3Perciò if you cook without love, that which is transmitted through the food may not be viable. The kitchen of a country reflects its culture. India is intense, magical, sometimes extreme and excessive. So is its cuisine. Full of strong flavors that hit the palate, but also benevolent and beneficial. The aromas are not put together at random, it 'alone
