Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The atmosphere was authentic, but not very cozy .. the service was good and the food was okay. BUT the prices are quite exaggerated. We paid twice as much as we paid in the restaurants in the top center of the city … It’s okay...to visit it once , but I would not come again.More

Great food and service, prices OK, just the ambience too basic. Normally you do not need a reservation.

Was shocked to eat in this Taj Mahal resturant where food took a very long time to arrive even though the place was not crowded at all.. Food was barely warm, and came in parts, some of us (we were three persons) finished their meal...while others didn't get their food. We asked for bread (naan) and it took so long until we had to give up and ask for the bill as the food we need to eat with naan became extremely cold.More

Family of 7 traveling with all ages. We were seated promptly upstairs. Nice atmosphere. Server was a little short with us at first but then warmed up and was telling stories by the end of the meal. Food came out quickly. Not the best Indian...but not the worst. Dal and butter chicken were our favorites. Some other dishes kind of tasted alike.More

Lovely food and service! I really liked the naan bread- lovely and garlic-y! The butter chicken was a little sweet for my taste but aside from that- very yummy!

The food was not hot enough for my taste, but arrived warm. Rice was sadly a dissapointment. Lassi was more like strawberry milkshake. i was left hungry after paying 15 leva for the very small vegetarian lentil dish. Gralic naan was very good but very...thin. Too expensive for the flat experience.More

We were craving for Indian food after being out in Europe for 1 week. On someone’s suggestion we went to Tajmahal, surprisingly we were all blown away with the food. It was tasty, fresh and quite authentic. The meats were tender, the curries and daal...super rich ( although tasty 😋, they obviously were made with cream and butter so a bit heavy in calories 😂) Great experience… we were all in food coma after the dinner.More

Firstly the restaurant is in a run down backstreet first impressions were not great when we entered it was near enough empty but was directed up some stairs into a very dark room and sat by a toilet now onto the food it’s without a...doubt that every meal they serve here is frozen because as other people have said no matter what you order you get it within 5 minutes that would be impossible also the chicken madras that we ordered was tasteless and was not remotely like a curry the Nan breads were clearly shop bought and were hard as bricks overall the worst indian restaurant experience ever in our lifetime eat there at your peril avoid avoid avoid this is not a real Indian restaurant it pretends to be and its high rating is because it’s promoted heavilyMore
