Always consistent and delicious, really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu! But their butter chicken and venison curry are favourites for us!

Great Indian again. Super fresh and authentic yet subtly different. When we come to Queenstown it is a must. Service prompt and friendly and nice decor. I recommend Taj highly

Visited twice during our Queenstown stay. Beautiful food, really authentic curries. The naans are so good as, it’s shocking how many places get them so wrong. Lovely service from the waitresses and I loved the huge pictures of the Taj Mahal. Made for a very...enjoyable evening.More

We can't recommend this place highly enough: Fantastic, friendly service; relaxing ambience; lovely location; and - most importantly - absolutely delectable, AUTHENTIC Indian food (not a butter chicken in sight:) If you want a specific recommendation, the Ambala lamb curry is truly out of this...world. Thank you so much for easily the best Indian meal we've had in New Zealand. If only we lived in QT, we'd be in daily!More

This restaurant/food never fails. Always delicious food devine fresh smells and very friendly professional staff and service. Sadly it is a lot more expensive than all other indians in town by far, therefore I would only go once every now and then or book on...first table. I would recommend this restaurant.More
