"When we are in Dubrovnik we make a point of eating at Taj Mahal," explained an English couple. And added with a smile "Sometimes we mix it up between going to the restaurant in Hotel Lero and sometimes to the one in the Old City. And any restaurant that states "Taj Mahal was created out of the love of two people who share the same devotion for food, tradition, family, and all those old customs that include a table full of food, the smell of grandma's kitchen, and that one plate always ready for a guest to come," certainly has our vote.
So to give you all a bit of background into Taj Mahal, it certainly stands out from the rest of the eateries in the city as this is authentic Bosnian food. And when we say authentic we mean with a capital A. The Taj Mahal restaurant unveils the heart of Bosnian cuisine through a rich tapestry of interwoven cultures and flavours. And yes, as the English guests stated there are two, one in Hotel Lero and one in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik. Taj Mahal has a pronounced emphasis on the use of fresh herbs, vegetables, and meats, the menu beautifully captures the essence of the country itself.
So how do they get such fresh and tasty meat? Well, they went one step further and opened their own butchers! Guests are in for a treat as the meats presented are sourced directly from the restaurant's own butcher shop, Taj Butcheraj. The establishment's commitment to quality meat is evident in its sourcing from small, free-range farms, guaranteeing an unparalleled gastronomic experience. And when embracing the vegetarian aspect, the restaurant meticulously selects seasonal vegetables from local producers spread across Croatia. This commitment to seasonality enhances each dish, and the menu boasts an array of vegetarian choices for those seeking plant-based options.
Above all, the menu has been thoughtfully curated to cater to every individual taste. Diners are encouraged to engage with the knowledgeable staff for any inquiries regarding the food's preparation or origins. The staff is dedicated to ensuring a delightful dining experience and encourages guests to seek assistance whenever needed. Your satisfaction is the restaurant's ultimate priority.
