“Good value Indian food”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

There's a couple of Indian restaurants in Torrox and they're all pretty much the same in terms of quality and value for money. There's so much competition between restaurants in the area that good value 3 course deals are common, and the curry restaurants are playing along too. The Taj is decent and very well priced.

“Always good and it´s ALL YOU CAN EAT!”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

We have eaten here many times and have always had a good meal and this last time was no exception. Yes, the ALL YOU CAN EAT MENU has gone up 2 euros to €11.95 but it is an ALL YOU CAN EAT MENU so if you feel you want a bit more for your money then order more dishes because it is ALL YOU CAN EAT.
We've always found the service to be friendly and maybe they could be a little more attentive with drinks etc. but they do work hard. So, chill and cut them a bit of slack.
The food for the ALL YOU CAN EAT menu is off the menu (not buffet style), freshly cooked and always tasty. At €11.95 for ALL YOU CAN EAT, it cannot offer anything other than good value for money.
My recommendation would be to order: poppadums and pickles, a starter (prawn puree is my favourite but the mixed starter also offers excellent value), a curry dish for main, a rice, a bread and some side dishes. You'll leave feeling you have eaten well and it will all be for the princely sum of €11.95 because it is ALL YOU CAN EAT. The drinks are not expensive either.
They always ask us through the meal if we would like more side dishes etc. and after we have paid the bill, they always offer an after-dinner drink which is a full size glass not a chupito.
So, how can this seem expensive? How can this not be good value for money when it is ALL YOU CAN EAT?
By the way, I'm not sure where that photo on this page came from but that is NOT the Taj Mahal at Torrox Costa?!

“Curry night!”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

We decided to take a long drive down to Torrox in the hope of a good curry at the Taj Mahal restaurant in Torrox last night, hoping the one and a quarter hours drive was not going to be a waste of time. Thankfully we were not disappointed, the meal was excellent, the best Indian we have had so far since moving to Spain.

The service was very good, our food was served quickly and was hot and tasty, the staff at the restaurant were polite and helpful. We were happy with the starters and the main course, the lamb tikka Madras which I had was very good and the meat was of good quality, the portions were exactly right.

It was definitely worth the drive down there and we will be going again in the very near future.

“kind of 'average'”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

We have eaten here a couple of times, most recently the portions seemed to be smaller and the cost a little higher. The staff were not that friendly and we had to struggle to get their attention on occasions. We will probably go elsewhere next time, shame though, a little more in house effort could make all the difference

“Update on previous review”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We spend a lot of the year in Torrox Costa and use many local restaurants throughout the year, lately the Taj Mahal has done itself no favours by reducing the portion sizes and increasing the prices by 2€. It is now becoming expensive for average food. I dont like giving negative reviews but I am struggling to find something positive to say about the Taj Mahal right now. It is now the only very local Indian restaurant but maybe it is worth the short journey into Nerja. Sorry Taj Mahal, we find your food OK, service OK, prices now not so good. I think we will be going to Nerja for an Indian meal in future.
