A Delicious Surprise!

After visiting the marina & a submarine ride, we headed back into town to find a place for lunch. We happened upon Taj Mahal. What a lucky find. The chicken curry & the vegetarian basmati rice dishes we ordered were perfectly seasoned. Had we found this restaurant earlier on our vacation to Aruba, we would have dined there several more times!!! The host was friendly & welcoming.

Delicious-- definitely try!

Normally don't write reviews for restaurants but I felt this place deserved it! My husband & I came to aruba for our honeymoon & me being an Indian & my husband liking it, we're really craving some Indian food. The chicken makanwalla (butter chicken) & chicken vindaloo are both delicious! We went there three times in five days. Just be mindful that when you ask for your dish to be spicy, they make it SPICY! We also had mango Lassis, garlic naan, & chicken biryani. All the dishes were fabulous, the service was perfect (always refilled water at the perfect times & gave us enough privacy while making sure we were doing ok).

It's located behind the bus terminal, across the street from the gelato shop named Lecca Lecca. It was nice to find an Indian restaurant on the island & even more pleasing when the food was delicious! Give it a try!!

The Taj Mahal in downtown Aruba really surprised and delighted us, especially the qualit of thevegetarian dishes.

Having eaten Indian food in restaurants in several parts of the world including India, we found the cuisine to be very authentic and tasty. Kudos to the chef! We found the ambiance and the service too to be very pleasant. What a treat to have such a fine dinner in a resort town like Aruba.

I love Indian food and went to Taj Mahal several times in the past. Food is fresh and tasty and prices are reasonable. Service is very basic but friendly.

My husband and I ate at Taj Mahal last February and I would give it a 10! In fact we ate there 2 times in 5 days. The food was wonderful and they were very friendly. We're going again in January and we can't wait to eat there again!

The food is very good here. Everything I had was tasty and the naan was excellent. I was very surprised with how small the serving was of the naan. In their menu, they had on most pages that the entree included "basmati rice and naan". The waitress said that was a mistake- it was one or the other. The menus need correcting, even if it's something as simple as typing up the word "or" and taping it over the word "and" on each menu. I think the interior could use some sprucing up and certainly Indian music playing would be nice and appropriate. The chairs were low for the table or vice versa. But I don't understand why more people weren't in here eating. Granted, we were early, but the food really is good.

We had a dinner at Tajmahal restaurant in December 07 & where pleasantly surprised to have an exquisitely delicious Indian food on a small Island of Aruba. We had never ate an Indian food as great as this anywhere. We were so impressed that they were our choice of caterer during the wedding of our daughter that was in Aruba in June of 2008. The owners Rajesh & Shobha Matai are the greatest people we met & their proffesionalism & caring they showed during every event were outstanding. When you are in Aruba, never miss a chance to eat at the TajMahal restaurant. You will not regret it.

hi...after spending a year in aruba, i have to say Taj Mahal is not the place to go! The food is not original indian food; its "spicyness" is altered by sprinkling red chilli pepper on top of the food, which i can do at home also. The deserts are very poor, as is the service. The waitress does not understand the names of dishes, nor can they say it properly. The restaurant is also situated BEHIND downtown, where the usual view is crackheads walking around and at times, by your table, etc. (outdoor seating). The restaurant has little ventilation, so it smells like smoke/garlic any time you visit. I would drive-thru Burger King anyday, to get my money's worth!
