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

I visited today Taj restaurant with my boyfriend and we were completely satisfied with the food. I liked most chicken tikka, plain naan. My boyfriend ate rogan josh which he said is perfect. I want to thank also to the nice stuff, which recommended us all the dishes. We will come again and recommend it to our friends.

Lovely indian meal, nicely spiced food and good service. Prices good but not as inexpensive as some restaurants in Sofia. Starters were nice and varied - my onion bajee was very good. The tandoori chicken was a little more spicy/hot than what is usually served - a little hot for the person that got it but I thought it was... More

We were 5 people sitting on the top floor. Furiously fast service, amazing food recommended and explained entirely by the cool stuff, everything was truly Indian, not just stating to be so. We had some veggie dishes, some meat ones, all thumbs up :) music fitted the restaurant, restaurant exceeded expectations. Certainly will put among favorite places in Sofia. Also... More
