Located across the street from the Blue Port Shopping Mall, this Indian restaurant is a popular stop for tourists looking for a quick bite, a takeout, drinks with friends, a romantic dinner, or just a delicious, filling meal after a long day. The Taj Mahal serves the entire range of traditional Indian fare – from vegetable, chicken and lamb curries, naan and rice, to improvised snacks such as chicken samosas and pakoras. Don’t be surprised if a bottle of wine on the house makes its way to your table while you are busy wiping your plate clean.
Apart from the a la carte menu, the Taj Mahal Restaurant Marmaris also serves buffets and some select Chinese dishes. Traditional Indian spices commonly used in the preparation of the dishes served are sold in jars at the main counter. The restaurant consists of two separate seating areas – a terrace with not much of a view, and an air conditioned interior space. The focus is not as much on the ambience as it is on the food, which most guests find fairly inexpensive, though many feel that the portions could be a little more generous. The service is friendly and adds to the entire atmosphere of no-nonsense fine dining.
