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.
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!
Like it, visit this place again. Good food. Good service.
The food was very good. The eggplant dish was excellent. The Okra dish was very good also.
Great food and service! Will definitely be back!
I love this restaurant - wonderful friendly staff, delicious fresh food and a calm soothing atmosphere. Always a great time here -never disappointed. Love Taj Mahal!
Excellent food and service!!! Definitely coming back!
Great spot for authentic Indian cusine. Attentive service and great value. The weekday lunch bufffet is very much worth it.
Wonderful food. Unique.
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.
Food was not good at all. Also, did not get what I had ordered.
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.
Taj Mahal is a combination of quality service and superior Indian cuisine.
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
Worst experience with their service. Did not honor the reservation we had.
Great food great service and super convenient to home!
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.
Excellent Indian food with lots of choices. Service was spot on. Waiter was knowledgeable and explained items.
The food was amazing!!! The service was wonderful! I will definitely go back!
