Welcome to Taj Mahal Indian Cuisine.
After visiting the curry houses of Europe, especially of London, our founder Har G. Keswani was inspired to bring Indian culture and food to New Orleans. Since 1982, the Keswani family has presented the unique cuisine of India to the New Orleans community.

This menu is an attempt to represent the diversity in Indian Cuisine from the South to the North.

Enjoy!

My family and I go somewhat frequently to Taj Mahal because going there is such a great experience. On the date above, we were celebrating a birthday. Even as we parked the car, wonderful aromas of Indian cuisine floated through the open door. The restaurant is owned and operated by an Indian family. The women servers wear saris, and the rooms are decorated with beautiful pictures and artwork of India. By far the best things, though, are the delicious (& very reasonable) dishes that can be relied on to be very flavorable. The servers are happy to advise on “spiciness” of certain dishes. I can’t wait until we go back!

The food was very good. The eggplant dish was excellent. The Okra dish was very good also.

The open trash bins in the hallway to the ladies room is disgusting, the ladies room was dirty and had an old vacuum cleaner in the corner

Absolutely terrible - we made reservations for Christmas Eve only to find out the restaurant was shut. They decided to shut early and not inform their reservations. Huge disappointment and inconvenience since not a lot of places are open for Christmas

Christmas Day dinner at Taj Mahal was terrific. Glad we made a reservation since the place was packed. Our server Jessica was amazing and had such a great attitude considering it was really busy. Food came out pretty quickly and everything was delish. Best Indian food in New Orleans.

The restaurant was good. They had a major mix up with reservations. The system really failed. It took reservations for too many people at the same time. It was confusing and we had to wait quite a while to be seated.

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves, even though they were extremely busy for Christmas, we enjoyed every moment. It was the best way to end our trip to Louisiana with family

Been passing this great restaurant during my runs. Glad to finally try it. Authentic food, great value, great service! I highly recommend it & certainly worth the drive in Old Metairie!

Food was really good. I had the tikki masala and my husband had a rice dish - very tasty and a bit spicey. Service was very prompt and attentive. Atmosphere was casual family dining in quaint dining room.

Went for lunch and a $11 plus buffet with eight items. Disappointed in selection for the price. Not worth the time or price for lunch. I have never been for dinner so it may be better than lunch, but I’m not confident.

Overall great place! The only thing that's keeping this place from receiving 5 stars is that I've had better Indian food when I lived in New York. If you've never had Indian before, this is definitely a great place to start with.

Very interesting Indian cuisine. Do order naan or the naan sampler. Really good. The curry with cashews and cream was outstanding.
The charcoal tandor oven did back up into the dining room. Ask for a seat in the back dining room.

Great Indian food in Old Metairie. Lunch is always a buffet while dinner is a la carte. You don’t usually need reservations but we once it had a long wait for a table so now we get them.
