I went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. I'd be lying if I said it was the best Indian I'd ever had, but it was very good. I had the paneer butter masala, garlic naan, and rice; for one person both rice and naan was too much food, but still tasty. Great sauce flavor and paneer texture, and... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 June 2016

Fantastic meal in Sofia! A little pricey, yes, relative to the city generally, but I ordered vegetarian dishes which were notably cheaper. Every dish I had was fantastic, including even the rice (I got the type with cumin). I had a dal dish, a chaat dish, and an okra dish. Every one was really excellent, better than Indian back home...

I love curry. I also live in Glasgow, which serve up some of the best in the UK and indeed, in Europe. This can cloud my judgement when eating curry in Europe and beyond. With the above in mind, I can safely say Taj Mahal was pretty damn good. The vegetable pakora was a promising start and my butter chicken... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is splendid and quiet with soft lighting, very reminiscent of most Indian restaurants. The food we had was incredible, with surprisingly large portions. We were surprised when the prices were in Bulgarian lev instead of euros, as three of us ate more than enough for approximately 40 USD. About half of our food was vegetarian... More

We showed up with a party of 8 and they immediately seated us. The food was good and the spicy plates were spicy enough to make you nose run (in a good way). Service was fast and they were very kid friendly!!

The restaurant was a short walk from my hotel which was a deciding factor in restaurant choice. The primary factor though was the ratings on TripAdvisor. I ordered 2 chicken dishes, 1 chicken tikka masala, and 2 chicken biryaki (spelling?) rice. The chicken pieces in the tikka masala were ample sizes of chicken and the masala was very flavorful!

This was our first visit to this restaurant but we will definitely go back. We were initially a bit wary because we eat a lot of curries and didn't think Bulgaria would have such a great quality one. Plenty to choose from, great taste and service excellent. It has a lovely feel to the place and beautifully decorated. It wasn't... More
