Taj Mahal (Nasssau, Bahamas)


Here we were with @tarajroth. Our last meal at Nassau of 2013. We had to go out and venture out on the island and get some good grub.


As always I asked around to crew members and I was told to check out Taj Mahal. Formerly known as Green Shutters. It was an Irish Pub way back in the day.


@tarajroth and I walked out and had no idea where to go. Luckily, I am not a typical male and asked for directions as many times as I could. It seemed the locals were sending us all kinds of different ways.


Finally a taxi driver led us to the right direction. From Bay Street you go to Parliament and go up the hill. Taj Mahal is on the right.


The Green shutters cannot be missed. We walked in and some locals were sitting down enjoying a good meal. We were greeted by a lovely young lady and sat down near the bar area.


Mango Lassi with Cinnamon
 


Chicken Vindaloo. The spice was perfect. I walked out sweating. Just like I like it.


Chicken Korma. @tarajroth ordered this one. I didn’t want to taste it because my dish was so yummy.


Garlic Naan. Very garlicky. Amazing.
 


Feast Shot.
 
 
 The place is expensive, but worth every penny. The portions are more than generous and the flavor and spice was like no other. Service is spot on. I will be going back and taking friends here.
 


Two Thumbs Up.

Khushi Indian Restaurant (St Maarten)


This day was an Indian food day. I have been to St Maarten several times before and always went to the same Indian restaurant. While walking to it I found out it has closed for good. So, I had to search for another one.


Khushi is hidden in the corner. Just to the left of the courthouse. Cash only and no credit cards. Free Wifi is always nice. When I arrived the staff seemed a bit apprehensive. I am sure they have never seen a Latino in their place before. I smiled and said I wanted to sit and eat.


The place is very small. Not sure if they ever get super busy or not. I did experience firsthand what it’s like when the crew members arrive. While sitting there all alone about 10 crew members showed up. Three of which I knew very well.


Mango Lassi was a great way to start my afternoon. Made on the spot.


Samosas. These were served with meat. Nice and crispy. The green sauce added a bit of kick to the samosas.


No Garlic Naan today, so I had to settle for Roti. It was good, but the garlic Naan would have hit the spot.


Chicken Vindaloo (Spicy) I could have had more spice. I think they make it more Americanized to be safe with the customers. I would have loved it extremely spicy.


The combination of the rice and vindaloo were perfect. Again, just would have wanted it spicier. Also, the food was warm but not hot. I could hear them cooking in the back, but it was not steaming hot.

Overall, nice place. Cash only. Staff is nice but don’t expect Disney type service. While speaking to one of the crew members he said it perfectly. He would rate it a 7 between 1 and 10. I would say I agree. Free wifi is a big plus. Come and give it a try for yourself.

I would say One Thumb Up.
