The Taj Mahal might be on the travel bucket list, but The Taj is your next pitstop for a tantalising culinary adventure.

Like its namesake, The Taj is a majestic, glittering, mosaic-clad beauty. Boasting partitioned booths, stunning views of the surrounding mountains and playful furnishings, it's a truly authentic spot that oozes personality and most importantly, jaw-droppingly delicious plates.

Armed and ready with exemplary chefs from all around India, this eatery uses only the finest local ingredients that are prepared with traditional methods that have been passed down generations. If it's a meat feast you're after, look no further than the lamb shabnami kofta, venison rogan josh and their creamy chicken and cashew curry.

Seafood comes in all shapes and sizes with the rich salmon moilee and Bengali fish curry that's packed with punchy mustard-y (is that a word?) flavours. And vegetarians are always celebrated at The Taj with the likes of palak paneer, bharwan mushroom and reviving dals lining the menu. And no meal is complete without a fine wine from fare NZ. Are India and New Zealand the new hot couple? We reckon so!
