“wait ... wait ... wait ...”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

First time in this restaurant - and last time as well!

The waiting time (before the starter, but also between starter and main course) is almost endless ... had to stay more than 2.5 hours for our three courses:

* Starters OK ... however, presentation rather loveless (hot starters are coming on a metal plate with some onion pieces hardly cooked ...);
* Main Course - AVOID the so-called speciality with "Gambas". According to the menu they are "macerate" in a special marinade .... but what you get (and this for 24.50 EUR!) are 4 "poor", charred gambas; again served on a metal plate with some onion pieces hardly cooked ... simply DISAPPOINTING! The other main course - a mixture of rice, meat and vegetables was OK (but not more neither). Ordered some vegetable as side dish in addition ... what came looked like defrosted vegetables ...
* Sweets at the end came - what a surprise - really fast on the table; and those we appreciated both

... however this is not enough to bring the rating on the good side, I am afraid; then, to cloture the chapter "Taj Mahal" we have spend more than 100 EUR for just two persons; a price that is much too high for what we got.


P.S. on TripAdvisor announced as an Indian Restaurant; as the cook is from Marokko, the kitchen is in fact a mixture of Indian and North-African style!
