The quality of the curry and meat was poor and did not appear fresh! The waiter had a bad attitude and was not very friendly and the whole meal was very overpriced! Asked for spicy of which it was not. Look elsewhere!

This Indian restaurant in Lavapies is mostly visited by tourists. The quality of food is ok, but the taste is not special and can't be seen as excellent food. The service was not really obliging and we were indirectly forced to leave the restaurant without...More

Loved the taste and price of the food. Quantity was very good and the quality was fantastic, apart from usage of too much oil. The area might seem a bit shady and may not be conducive for family visits in the late evenings. Ambiance is...More

We stumbled across Taj one night while looking for some non-Spanish food for dinner, went inside on a whim and were not disappointed. Very fresh, delicious food, attentive and quick service, wait staff spoke good english. We will go back here again during our trip!

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with

ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
