It is our first trip to Pyin oo Lwin and it was our first dinner. After seeing the review here we decided to go with family and friends. As we sitted it took a while for them to take our order. We saw the service...was going to be slow but we didn't mind thinking the food is going to be great. We asked prawn tandoori (taste was really blend), hara bhara kebab (which was made with flour),chicken lollipop (the batter was too thick), chicken butter masala ( never had shreaded chicken pieces in butter masala), Naan ( that was good). Our friends asked chilled beer (cold enough). Overall the service was bad, food was not good enough, and the price was way too high for that quality.More

Indian restaurant at a great location with an amazing view. The food was great but the tandoori chicken I was served was a little dry. The naan and the butter chicken makes a delicious combo. Staff could be a little more friendly.

I’ve had countless trips to Pyin Oo Lwin and whenever I’m there, I come to the Taj. It’s always delicious. The quality of the dishes is always the same unlike other Indian restaurants where you order the same curry and each time, it has a...different taste. The vegetarian curry is awesome! The chicken tandoori is so tasty that you can’t stop!! I highly recommend this restaurant.More

I guess I ordered the wrong dishes but I felt the food was rather bland. The sunset view of the "lake" was not as impressive as I expected (it was the dry season). It was hot and no AC when I was there. They also...have delivery serviceMore

The Indian food is awesome! I highly recommend this restaurant. Everything was delicious. The Indian traditional bread may be a little oily comparing to what I’ve tried before but it’s delicious anyway. And the price is more than reasonable!

The best Indian curry that I have come across in Myanmar but also by far the most expensive. Nice setting overlooking the lake

Authentic Indian taste. Price is reasonable and location is good. Service and food quality is good. Restaurant does not have air conditioning but fresh air from lake compensate it.

We had been recommended the Taj so we're surprised when we turned up and it was completely empty however we pressed on. We ordered the Butter Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala. When they came they tasted the same and we couldn't tell the difference. The...chicken in the Tikka Masala was so tough that I couldn't get my fork through it. The Naan bread was completely crispy. Unfortunately I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom after this visit.More

After wandering along a dark lightless lane with no activity we reached the Taj to a warm welcome. Although the rear approach to the restaurant is a bit mundane the lake view to the front is fantastic. The service was great and the food good...and excellent value. Only a 4 not 5 because of my western preference for lean meat and white chicken.More

The food was great! We had supper here one night and received good service and we all loved the food. Of all the restaurants that we went to in the 2 days there, this was absolutely the best.
