Taj Ganj, Agra, India

Indian curries, flatbreads, paratha. Free Wi-Fi though not always available. A few tables in the downstairs entry area, as well as more on the rooftop up several flights of stairs. Located across the street and down a few buildings from Joney's.

delicious! - Edit

The best thali of India! It’s huge, filling and yummy! The place is nice and they have AC for the really hot days in Agra. They’ll put some more dhal if you’re vegan (instead of the curd). Come come come!

The best food in Agra - Edit

Gorgeous food at an extremely cheap price. The people that work here have brilliant English & know the word ‘vegan’. They’ll happily point out the vegan dishes for you & chat away with you at the same time.

We ate a garlic naan that they offered to make vegan (super scrummy), dum aloo, mixed veg curry, potato & cauliflower curry & a potato & spinach curry. All of these dishes are fantastic! We have eaten here two days in a row & plan to spend our last night here also.

Vegans get your butt here if you’re in Agra!

Pros: Price & food quality , Service, Close to Taj Mahal

Great little place with rooftop seating - Edit

This is the second time I've been here in 4 years. It was great in 2012 and still is now.
Close to my hotel and the owner is really nice.
The most important thing is the food, and that was very lovely. The prices are incredibly reasonable making you feel as a westerner that you're not being ripped off. Perfect for a backpacking solo traveler or couple. In 2012 I was with my partner, and now in 2016 I'm here alone. Had a vegan curried spinach disk and was amazing

Pros: Great selection of food both Indian and Western , Nice roof top seating area to eat your meal, Awesome advice at back of the menus telling you ho

Simple, organic vegetarian food next to the Taj - Edit

This place stands out among the restaurants closest to the Taj. It is efficiently run by two brothers, Shankar and Govinda, who both speak English well and always take time to chat with you. They use organic vegetables and dairy products which are grown on their family farm that also supplies the wholesale market. They will take time to talk to you and make your food to your specifications. I am a big fan of cauliflower and they let me order gobhi masala even though its not on the menu. You can order your food spicy or not spicy. The thali platter is good value and they will give you extra dal instead of curd if you wish. I don't do dairy, but I can attest to the appeal and beauty of their lassis. Just the sight of them makes everyone else in the place add one to their order. The owners are very interested in your feedback and really want to make you happy as well as continue to improve their service. The place has a couple of rushes during the day as the crowd fluxes and the rest of the time you can have the place to yourself. You order downstairs and then head for the roof if you wish, which has partial views of the Taj and a birdseye view of life in Agra. The wifi was working great when we there. I give this place four stars because of its proximity and dedication to vegetarianism as well as its kind and friendly owners.

Pros: Friendly, Great location, Good food
