Decided to try the restaurant and we certainly weren't disappointed. First visit we ordered from the Indian menu and was lovely. The side dishes were freshly cooked and the curry tasty. 2nd visit we ordered the Chinese and again we found the food lovely. 3rd visit we tried the Thai green and red curry and it's the best I've tasted...

This our 17th visit to Pefkos and always try and eat here about 3 times per visit. Yet again great food with excellent service, both Chinese and Indian did not disappoint. We do love the Greek food but it's nice to have a good curry. We will be definitely be eating here again and would definitely recommend it.

This was a great change from having Greek/Mediterranean. The dishes we had were lovely. Plenty of flavour. A must if you fancy something different.

Indian meal was the best I have had on Rhodes in 13 years of visiting. Chinese was excellent and enjoyed by the others in my group. Really nice food. Service was excellent. Waiters very attentive...

Went here as it was the only curry place in the town. Truly wish we hadn't. I have never written a review on Tripadvisor before but after what we have just experienced felt that we should to stop other people wasting their money and having such an awful food and customer service experience , especially at a time when you...

Came here for an Indian meal at the Taj Mahal. Also offer Chinese food if you prefer. Our indian meal was very nice but if you like spicy food then go for something spicier than you would at home. I went for madras which to me was not very hot at all and nor was the jalfrezi. Tasty enough though... More

Great choice of both Chinese and Indian food - very clever for families who want different meals! Quick service, fresh food and very reasonably priced! Enjoyed our meal and we would definitely visit again!

The Indian food was ok but the red and green Thai curries were lacking coconut milk. Generally nothing like the food we thought we were ordering but different from the typical Greek menus for a change.

Came here not expecting much as I have been disappointed by Greek Chinese restaurants before. However this exceeded all expectations. Thouroughly enjoyed my meal as did everyone in my group. We ordered a mix of Chinese and Indian and our main courses were all very nice. One thing we would not get again would be the dumpings but overall a... More
