Taj Mahal, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Taj Mahal, Garmisch-Partenkirchen | www.germanyja.comWhile recently spending a long weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, we had a craving for Indian food. A quick internet search produced the address for the ‘Taj Mahal’ and off we went. When we arrived, the waiter asked if we had a reservation. We did not, but he was able to find us a table. We arrived at 1800 and by 1900 most of the tables were full, so reservations are recommended – especially if dining during the weekend.

It was difficult to decide what to eat, everything sounded amazing! As we were making our choices, complimentary papadum and sauces were delivered to our tables. Each table had a beautiful single red rose and a candle. The ambience was very relaxing, but there were also plenty of tables of families – this is definitely a restaurant that welcomes everyone!

We decided on a mango chicken curry, butter chicken curry and a butter naan to share. All curries came with complimentary basmati rice. Drink servings were generous, our coca cola lights were more than 0.5L servings and were deliciously chilled even without ice – something we have found to be a rarity in German restaurants.

Indian food can be touch and go in Europe, but I can confidently say that after this is some of the best Indian food we have had since arriving three years ago. The naan was cooked in a tandoor oven and was perfectly crisp and warm. The mango curry had real chunks of mango and was thick and delicious, unlike many restaurants that seem to try to pass off curry as soup! The butter chicken had deep flavor and was delicious, but our favorite was definitely the mango chicken curry.

Our only disappointment is that we only visited once during our vacation, we look forward to returning to try some of the vegetarian dishes. The serving sizes were large and the waiters were polite and efficient.  Our meal as described above came to €32.
