We eat here, both in the restaurant and take away regularly, the food is always freshly cooked and authentic. The service is second to none and quirky, you are made to feel very special. In fact a couple of years ago we had dinner here for my husband's 50th, we mentioned the birthday after we arrived and a chocolate cake... More

We visited on a Monday evening following a frustrating day of our own kitchen refurb and still no cooker! It was lovely to walk in and be greeted like old friends and made to feel so welcome. The Cobra and popadoms to start immediately cheered us, the pickles beautifully tasty. The mains, sides, rice and naan were all delicious with... More

In the days of sheek it's refreshing to go to a good old fashioned value for money Indian restaurant. The Taj delivers all you expect from an Indian restaurant with a warm welcome on your arrival by freshly prepared pickles and poppadoms, not from a tin! The owner and waiters are all very attentive but not over powering offering assistants... More

Visited this restaurant Wednesday 19th early evening - very cold!! A warm welcome straight away and a table by a heater was provided. A vindaloo had to be ordered and this along with the bombay aloo and mushroom bhaji was really tasty. Wish we lived nearer so that we could frequent this great establishment more. Definately worth a visit.

There are not many restaurants that bring you back by the attentiveness & friendliness of the staff - but Ali and his team do just that. Always bringing a smile to my family & I, which makes for a great evening out as well as a great meal. The food is lovely, if you need help choosing - ask, they... More

We visit the Taj regularly and also enjoy their takeaways. The restaurant moved to this location years ago and before that we enjoyed their meals in another location in Marden. The restaurant is well known and well liked locally and their Tuesday "specials" are excellent value and very popular! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, giving great service to... More

What a delightful find this indian restaurant was amongst the kent countryside. We went in for a lunch time meal and even though we had the place to ourselves we were welcomed like old friends and enjoyed an entertaining chat with the waiter who was happy to explain how each meal was made. Starters we had were Prawn Puri and... More

This is our favourite Indian restaurant in this area. Service is always excellent, food tasty and price reasonable especially on a Tuesday evening when for £10 you can enjoy from the menu any starter, main course, side dish and either rice or a nan bread. A good friendly atmosphere with attentive staff.
