Ein Bokek is a hotel complex by the Dead Sea with few independent restaurants. The Taj Mahal is one of the only free standing restaurants and it is a more pleasant, cheaper and better quality place to eat than the hotel restaurants.

The service was probably the worst I’ve ever encountered!! And the owner was no help, self righteous ended up leaving the place without eating.

The mixed grill was good but everything else was pretty bad. The humus tasted like store bought, the stuffed grape leaves were from a can. Even the french fries were not fully cooked. Too bad. The place itself was fun to eat in.

We came in two families. 4 adults, 6 kids. The place is How the hell this place appears as 2nd place in trip advisor?? Are they paying money? I'm very surprised I m not sure I can rely on trip advisor!!! not clean.. I cleaned...my table and the fresh one wiper was black. Some of the plates were also not clean and were replaced. Took 20 minutes until a waiter came and another 15 minutes till we got our drinks. Than took another 15 minutes till we got our food. I ordered falafel humus - the worst I ate. After tasting just left the plate as is. No one asked we if something is wrong and of course no one offered no to charge me on that... My wife had shakshuka - eggs with tomato sauce.. it was ok. Not fresh tomatoes or something special. My son had barbeque wings - according to him was ok. My daughter has kids meal chicken sticks - I ate one and it was ok. Of course from a bag.. not fresh made.. The pitta bread we got came in cold. We were very disappointed and will most probably avoid returning. This is in no way representing the Israeli food. If you want to go there, go only for drink something and smoke shisha.. not to eat.. And if you do want to eat, have patience and order the kids meal.More

The food was ok, but the portions was the smallest i ever seen in an eastern restaurant, and the prices were very high.

I had been there before. This visit was disappointing. The dish I ordered never arrived was then told it was sold out. Kebab dry. Slow service. Just not a good experience.

The food and atmosphere at this place were great! Great choice of drinks and food we got the tradition grill and it was one of the best meals we had all trip. Their are cats ALL over and they do irritate you for food so...if you have an allergy this may not be your place. Luckily we love cats so my daughter was thrilled. They had a huge party while we were there so the service was slow but they were very nice and the people watching was worth the long dinner.More

I guess it will be open regularly, as it's an Israeli owner.

There is no kosher certificate, it's open on Shabbat but I'm almost sure that they use only kosher ingredients.You can always go just for drinks :)
