I had the most lovely chicken in my life tonight. I ordered chicken tikka masala and i was very surprised how tender, juicy, smokey and delicious it was. I definitely recommend this place to people who are serious about good taste and remarkable food.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2017 via mobile

We ordered online and our food was delivered directly to our hotel room. The meal was fresh, tasty and still quite hot. We ordered the garlic nan and it was a pretty generous size along with butter chicken. The tandoori chicken was spicy and flavorful. We enjoyed our meal very much! More

I love Indian food and was not disappointed by this nice 3 floor Indian restaurant in the heart of Sofia. The portions are quite big, delicious and the staff is nice. I'd definitely come back.

.... and made the meal really an occasion to remember. Compared to past experiences in Bulgaria the Indian dishes were very good, although it would be unfair to compare the general standard of cooking with native Indian catering! Service was courteous and attentive and a good time was had by all. All in all makes a very pleasant change from... More

I tried to book for Valentines night for me and my wife and was told I had to go to the restaurant with a 60 leva as a deposit due to being a special evening. I explained we live 400k away and couldn't really be there until the 14th February. The owner, Martin, came on the phone and accepted my... More

Found this place on Tripadvisor and wanted to see how Indian food is in Bulgaria. This place is really nice and has a great "Living Room" atmosphere. You really feel like you are in some local place where you are probably going to get nice food ... and you do! I ordered the Lamb Khaltada and when I did I... More

Indian food is the perfect escape from the typical meals offered in Bulgarian restaurants. Everything is good and tasty. I usually don't eat lamb, but when is from Taj Mahal I make an exception. Recently, I used the online platform to order food to go. It's fast, easy and I got 20% discount!

Lovely food in this restaurant at a great price too. The service was also very quick and at no point did I need to wait for anything. The restaurant is theme decorated and it appeared that a waitress was allocated to each floor. I had the lamb rogan which was lovely, also the samosa starters were large and good quality... More
