Indian Restaurants in Beijing

Taj Pavilion
Taj Pavilion Restaurant, Beijing Taj Pavilion doesn’t serve the best value Indian food in Beijing, but it’s almost certainly the tastiest.
The use of quality products at Taj Pavilion makes the meals truly delicious. And at around ¥70-80 for a main course, it’s not a lot extra to pay for the higher standard. The interior has been kept fairly simple, but classy chairs and a few chandeliers help give the restaurant an up-market vibe. All the classic Indian dishes are on the menu and the ¥98 buffet lunch allows the opportunity to sample a variety of your favorites at a reasonable price. Convivial management and efficient waiters round off the dining experience at Taj Pavilion.
