I've had dinner here many times over the years and have never been disappointed, the food is always excellent. Whether vegetarian or meat (they have tasty lamb as well as beef and chicken), the dinners are delicious and you can choose how spicy or mild you prefer. They also have seafood, paneer, and tandoori. The dining room is open and... More

Came here to stop off before heading back down into the LA area, the food was what you expect from an Indian restaurant. Location is popular with the office crowd on California Ave. A little different from Zaika on Ming, but the price is reasonable and the selection was decent. Would stop off here again.

When we dine at Taj Mahal we eat family style that way we can enjoy a variety of the different dishes. From the curry chicken, tika masala, nan bread, and a few others. Service is always consistent.

My wife loves Taj Majal. We've been there many times over the years, often for special occasions. I've come to prefer another Indian restaurant in Bakersfield, and last night was a good example of why. We went for dinner to celebrate her retirement. We were the only customers in the restaurant the entire time we were there. Our orders were... More

Stopped by for dinner and enjoyed the veg pakoras and very sumptuous goat curry. The chicken biriyani could have done with more spices. Servers were quick to fill drinks and clear empty plates and still making us welcome to stay as long as we wished. Would definitely visit again for dinner and to try the lunch buffet.

Good food for the price and the fact lunch time is all you can eat. Very attentive staff too! My classmates and I liked it so much that we come here at least once a week.

An above average food, decor and service gives Taj Mahal Cuisine of India a notch above the rest. But there is room for improvement. The idea is to be creative in decor and Food.
