#Amazing curry# Amazing presentation # Amazing staff I have one of the finest experience while having my dinner with The Taj. It started with entertaining my request to have a table where I have Lake view. We ordered basis dishes (much chicken, Paneer butter masala...and Dal Makhani) since we are visiting them for first time. The curries were amazing 👏 and specially dal and murg reminds me my collage days back in Delhi, India. Manager and other staff is so friendly throughout our visit. Lastly, thanks to "Jabbar", the chef for making amazing curries.More

We ordered lamb cutlets as a starter (to share) followed by a scallop curry and a chicken curry as our mains. All were delicious with the lamb cutlets being a particular highlight. While the meals are not cheap, the quality and quantity is well worth...the prices paid - the lamb cutlets were sized like a main and they were not stingy with the scallops either. Service was also excellent - friendly and attentive without being cloying. Some of the best Indian food we've had. Would definitely return as we are keen to try out more of the menu!More

The food was a total waste and very expensive. Ordered few Indian curry and it didn’t even taste like an authentic one. The meat had a smoke flavour and seems like precooked meat on a sauceMore
