The butter chicken, meat samosa and garlic naan were all very good - just wish delivery had not taken 2 hours. Used the online order entry option on their website. Received confirmation email with estimated delivery. 20 minutes after estimated delivery we called - "we have no record of your order". Stay away from their website order option and just... More

This is a cramped restaurant with a lot of heart. A very diverse clientele from caucasian, spanish, south east asian, Filipino, you would be surprised ! The food was extraordinary for the price. If you are vegetarian, try the Thali, a little bit of everything for a reasonable price. The service is a bit slow but definitely get reservations ahead... More

My wife and I regularly go this reliable restaurant on the edge of Georgetown because of its reliably tasty food, with many vegetarian options; stylish, yet cosy interior; more than fair price setting; and very friendly service.

I usually do not write many reviews on restaurants, however, this time I felt compelled to share my experience. I went in the middle of the day, around 4 pm and the restaurant was relatively quiet, about 3-4 other customers. However, from the moment I walked in, I was treated as if I was a HUGE inconvenience to the restaurant.... More

Lovely atmosphere, super service and delicious food and beer. We ate here about a week ago while on a coach tour of North America. Staff were all friendly and helpful the menu had a wide choice on it. We really enjoyed our meals.

Quaint little restaurant with very attentive and friendly staff. Food was good and we selected two Thali plates to try a range of meat and vegetable dishes together with a tandoori mixed grill. This provided plenty of food for all three of us. Overall was a good experience. Would order a specific dish next time as those I saw on... More

We'd had two very good meals at Taj of India in Georgetown six or more months ago, but last night's experience was very disappointing. It took 45 minutes for appetizers to arrive, and when they did they were bland and leaden. Our butter chicken entree was lukewarm and had to be sent back to be reheated. The tandoori salmon was...

Nice little restaurant with attentive staff. We really enjoyed the Lamb Korma with Nan. They had a nice selection of Indian beers and plenty of choices for vegetarians. It was a very hot night and the air conditioner had a hard time keeping up. But other than that very nice!

I came here on a business trip. The space is a little old school but it has a nice feel to it. The service is very friendly and the food here was great. I believe I saw the owner (or manager I'm not sure) busing tables and you rarely or almost never see that! I had the Lamb Biryani (hot)... More

I've been there with 3 female friends for dinner. The service was very good. The waiters very welcoming. They told us, that we have to wait a little longer for chicken tandoori, because it needs a longer cooking time. That was fine with us and it was nice that they were honest. We waited like 20min and that was absolutely... More
