We ate lunch here on a whim, not checking TA reviews. Check the reviews! The food was above average Indian fare and the service was on par for France but...we were charged for the naan bread, each piece! Unheard of in the US. The least expensive half bottle of wine was $11 when it is no more than $8 anywhere... More

A very well appointed and large curry house but a bit disappointing on the food front. Service is a bit iffy but the food was underwhelming and a bit dry.

Although this was a busy restaurant and appears to be popular, we were not impressed. My husband ordered prawn raita for a starter which was a dish of a few small prawns and lots of cucumber in a very wet and thin yoghurt. Very bland. I ordered onion bhagi and was served onion rings in a thick heavy batter with... More

Difficult to find a decent curry in France, but the Taj Mahal manages. The set menu (during the week) offers very good value for money, with reasonable wine and beer costs. Nan and poppadoms also well cooked. Service we have always found to be good, and the ambience and location are excellent.

When you're used to the high standard of curries in and around one of the UK curry capitals of Bradford, finding one to compare favourably elsewhere is never easy, particularly when abroad. That said, this one wasn't too bad, flavours generally ok (apart from tasteless parathas and bhajis) and the madras, if anything, was too hot! It's a nice comfortable... More

The restaurant looks fabulous, the decor is great and the tables are covered with white table clothes. However, the service was slow even though the place was not busy. We were disappointed that we were unable to order a side dish. Every dish is served as a main course with rice.We had to order a main of tarka dahl with... More

While this was the best restaurant curry I have eaten in France, that is not saying a lot. I selected the set menu for lunch . The main dish was a chicken curry. I asked for it well spicd. They tried. The curry arrived and I was told it was a Madras. Sorry guys; it was pretty insipid for a... More

I ordered lamb korma and the extreme naan bread (with the fruit). It was both very delicious and quite good value.

Had a delicious fresh chicken tikka masala curry and a half bottle of wine. Absolutely fabulous. Chicken was so fresh, tender and succulent and the rice was beautiful. Highly recommend.

The food arrived at the table hot and attractively presented and my curry didn't disappoint but oh dear the onion bhaji was more like a onion ring - terrible! The waiters were friendly and the service good. The restaurant was clean and so were the toilets. All-in-all a pleasant experience.
