A group of us arrived at this busy restaurant and, we were served our food very quickly. However, the chicken jalfrezi which 3 of us ordered was so bland it was a joke to call it a jalfrezi. There were no chillis in the curry and the sauce was thin and tasteless. When complaining to the waiter and subsequently the... More

In a beautiful city such as Bordeaux, don't be tempted to revert to type and go looking for a curry late at night. We did and it was poor in the extreme...

This restaurant came as a delightful surprise after reading a few negative reviews on trip advisor. We said whatever, give it a go. The positives are unique Indian flavour in the tikka chicken masala and lamb rogan josh. The mixed vegetable entree was beautiful perfectly cooked, pan fried. I have lived in Malaysia as a child, lived in the United... More

People who enjoy good ambiance and authentic Indian food Taj Mehal is place for them. Prices are reasonable compared to other fine dinning resturants. I love their Mango Lassi , Gulab JAmun and BBQ . Highly recommended.

We ate lunch here on a whim, not checking TA reviews. Check the reviews! The food was above average Indian fare and the service was on par for France but...we were charged for the naan bread, each piece! Unheard of in the US. The least expensive half bottle of wine was $11 when it is no more than $8 anywhere... More

A very well appointed and large curry house but a bit disappointing on the food front. Service is a bit iffy but the food was underwhelming and a bit dry.

Although this was a busy restaurant and appears to be popular, we were not impressed. My husband ordered prawn raita for a starter which was a dish of a few small prawns and lots of cucumber in a very wet and thin yoghurt. Very bland. I ordered onion bhagi and was served onion rings in a thick heavy batter with... More

Difficult to find a decent curry in France, but the Taj Mahal manages. The set menu (during the week) offers very good value for money, with reasonable wine and beer costs. Nan and poppadoms also well cooked. Service we have always found to be good, and the ambience and location are excellent.

When you're used to the high standard of curries in and around one of the UK curry capitals of Bradford, finding one to compare favourably elsewhere is never easy, particularly when abroad. That said, this one wasn't too bad, flavours generally ok (apart from tasteless parathas and bhajis) and the madras, if anything, was too hot! It's a nice comfortable... More
