The staff were really friendly and helpful, so that is a definite plus point. However, we were disappointed with the food but perhaps we are too used to Indian restaurants in the UK.

Not sure what I expected from Indian food in Sofia, but Taj Mahal was amazing. I'm jealous that this place isn't in London so I can visit more frequently. I'm a huge fan of spicy curry and, while it's only got a slight kick by...More

Nice atmosphere, good food and nice service. I ate chicken korma and took a bottle of white wine: 8 €. The cook is indian and it shows in the food: authentic indian. A place you must eat in, if you like indian food.

Despite being a little bit pricey when compared to the majority of restaurants, Taj Mahal is one of my favorite restaurants in Sofia! It is also the best one for authentic Indian food with a wide variety of dishes for people who have different tastes....More

If you're a fan of Indian food, you should definitely try this restaurant. My favourites are mixed raita, dal makhni, the chicken malai tikka masala, and as a dessert - the phirni. I love that there's something for everyone's taste, as long as they're a...More

We ordered home delivery which took 2 hours and half, absolutely unacceptable. We had to call them twice for information on the order. Finally when the food arrived it was way too greasy and too heavy to eat. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
