The Nizami handi was too sweet. Dal navratna was good. Starter was not described correctly. Service gets slow once it gets a little late. Maybe it was just a bad day....

Since I was staying at the Taj, decided to give this Indian place a try. No regrets; great selection of Indian dishes, and great tasting too. Service was superb.

Visited Navratna at Taj Samudra for dinner. Overall it was a good experience. Hot and spicy hot rassam served at the start of the dinner was the best part. Chapatis, Naan, Dal makhni and Gobi Bhindi served were exactly the way we cook back home....More

Navaratna, in Taj Samudra, provides excellent classic Indian food---but more pleasant is the choice of Indian muksic---either live during dinner with live muksicians, or as soft background play during lunch! So you don't just eat Indian, you also feel Indian!
