We just had a delightful dinner at the Taj Mahal restaurant. We were a little bit worried after reading some of the reviews, but we found none of that to be true. The service was friendly, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was fine and attentive. We will definitely go back if we are in Santander again.

Worst Indian food I've ever had the misfortune to eat! We arrived a little after 8pm and were told to come back in 30 minutes. The vegetable samosa were greasy and bland, the Garlic Naan was greasy, undercooked and had no Garlic. I ordered a Chicken Vindaloo that was tasteless and no spice or heat to it, it was swimming...

This is the only place where you can get a taste of India, aptly named restaurant, which means that there are some dishes which are adapted to the Spanish taste. However I always enjoy the tikka masala, the balti, and the korma.

A pretty good attempt at a very decent curry. Unfortunately did not have any halal dishes (except for shish kebab which tasted fresh out of a frozen packet) so we chose Turka daal, prawn curry and mushroom bhaji with rice and naan. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and the portion sizes. The daal was not brilliant but the... More

Have been a fan of indian cuisine for over forty years and eaten in many indian restaurants throughout the world including india. This restaurant rates in our view as one of the best. Visited twice in a short stay in santander and were really impressed with the food and service.
