If you’re in the mood for some good Indian food and happen to be in Algiers, you must go here! Taj Mahal is an excellent Indian restaurant located in Dely Brahim. For the pedestrians, you can take the Ben Aknoun bus or the Al- ‘Aashour bus to get there.
The entrance has a small pond with artificial plants. The service is excellent! From the doorman, to the reception desk, to the waiters, to the servers- they are all extremely professional and attentive. The two upper levels are designated for dining and on the second level, the kitchen has a large glass window that allows you to watch the chefs in action!
The food is amazing but not cheap! Both the Algerians and the foreigners will tell you that! However, everyone will tell you it’s worth it and that the portions are much larger than the snooty French restaurants serve. Urbndervish and I dine here for our monthly payday treat! 😉 We order Channa Masala, Aloo Jerra, and Garlic Naan. They also serve Dhal Makhani but it has a cream base. They also serve Palak Paneer (I think) for the cheese-eaters out there. So, if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by at Taj Mahal.
