The service is very good with friendly waiting staff. On a busy Saturday evening you can expect a longer wait but not unreasonable wait, and they make sure you have a drink while you wait to be served.
There is a wide range on offer on the menu with all the favourites as well as some delicious Nepalese specialties. The naan bread is the best I've ever tasted!
Prices are very good.
It may get a little noisy on a busy evening and the seating is a little cramped, but this is because the restaurant is so popular. It's located near the Penzance sea front so popular with tourists.

This is not your typical Indian but exceptionally fine dining on Nepalese specialties. The service is excellent and nothing is too much trouble. Try chef's recomendations and anything unusual - you won't be disappointed. Even have loyalty card for free meals if you live in the area. There is take away too for visitors who are renting and may not have a babysitter.

This restaurant is a cut above most Indian restaurants I've tried, at least for the food. The vegetable dumplings are great, containing zingy, fresh and crunchy veg, not all mushy like your typical samosa. Main course was a Balti that was quite sweet and different to other Baltis. The nan bread was light and fluffy; the best I've had. The vegetarian options are pretty limited and there is no attempt to offer organic or locally produced food. None of the meat was advertised as outdoor reared/free range. The service was efficient and the price very reasonable, especially on wednesdays when they have a special offer on.

The Taj Mahal is hidden away behind the prom in Penzance but is well worth finding. It is always busy and the atmosphere is always warm and friendly.

The menu is Himalyan but with the usual Indian dishes too. Every dish we have tried is light and flavoursome, refreshingly only lightly salted and with non of the ghee that floats unhealthily on the top of most Indian meals.

I strongly recommend the starters of mu mu (little Himalayan dumplings full of lamb or vegetables) chicken tuk tuk or the mushroom delight.

Main courses include the delicious miss mass. Himalayan chicken and lamb dishes are excellent too. The naans are wonderful.

This restaurant deserves much more credit, Give it a try.
