“Taste of India in Aruba”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

The food and the prices were very good. The service staff didn't say much except when we asked for rice or extra pachati and they said, "It is going to be extra." Lots of locals order and take home, but the restaurant is nicely located and the food is delicious!

“Very Good Indian Food and Service”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

While the restaurant atmosphere leaves a little to be desired and there appears to be some construction going on on the exterior of the building, the food itself was top notch. We enjoy Indian food and this was very good indeed. The service was good as well. We enjoyed several chicken dishes and our family shared them all, as well as several orders of naan. It was nice to eat authentic Indian cuisine while in Aruba. We would return.

“Indian in Oranjestad”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

My boyfriend and I headed to Taj Mahal one day for lunch while in Oranjestad. The exterior may throw you off a bit as the mini-mart next door is being renovated. However, we decided to give it a try anyways.

Inside, the decor/ambiance was lacking and we were the only patrons in the restaurant. Looking at the menu, the prices were a bit high for the portions that we received. Probably average for the island. However, the food was served piping hot and the service was sufficiently attentive if not a bit indifferent.

GIven the other options on the island, probably wouldn't recommend unless you had a serious hankering for Indian food and were in Oranjestad.

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Food was delicious. Service was ok. We ended up going there only because a nearby restaurant was packed. It didn't disappoint.
