Saturday evening visit with family. Having been once before and found the food quite tasty was expecting the same this time. The restaurant was not that busy at 7:30pm but filled up a bit later. Ordered a range of dishes for both starter and main course and found them generally to be quite flavourless and in some cases looking like... More

We called in mid week for an early evening curry. The restaurant was quiet. Service was prompt. The food was good, but with very large portions which we found a bit over facing. I chose a chicken tandoori based dish that included rice and although it was very tasty, I had to leave two thirds of the meal because there... More

I visited this restaurant based on the fact that there are so few curry houses in Harpenden and that there appeared to be good reviews on this restaurant. I came in by train so it was reasonably close to the station; it is however on the rough part of Harpenden. At night the shops do not have their lights on.... More

Excellent papadums, sheek kabab, king prawn dansak and chicken tikka. Very good service. The best Indian food we have had for ages. I would certainly recommend!

Early Saturday evening meal, nothing special, service ok if ever so slightly on the rude side. Couldn't get us out fast enough. Food just ok.

It was our first time visiting this restaurant and we were very impressed. It was reasonably busy for a Monday night. The food was high quality and absolutely delicious. We ordered Chicken Jalfrezi, Murgh Zafrani and chickpeas with spinach - all cooked to perfection. If you want no nonsense, good quality, tasty indian cuisine i would highly recommend it. We... More

This is Harpenden's first / oldest Indian restaurant. We ate here with friends and everyone enjoyed their food. If you are vegetarian like myself, and see a dish on the menu you like the sound of, they will substitute the meat for paneer cheese. I like a hot dish and tried their "Nashlee" dish with paneer, which was delicious. It... More

I visited New Taj Mahal with a few friends last week. The food and service was outstanding as you would expect from this restaurant. The waiters were very attentive, the food was fresh and well presented and served in good time. Highly recommend their Murug Tawa.
