Went to the Taj yesterday evening and as usual was not disappointed. From the outside this place is pretty unprepossessing but once you get inside and taste the food, then you realise you have come to a way above average curry house. I have been here off and on over the years but it has recently become my regular favourite... More

I've been here on a number of occasions now, and can say in my honest opinion, I think this is one of the best curry houses in town! I have brought almost all of my family to this restaurant, and they all agree it has a friendly atmosphere and great home made food, no bottled curry paste flavours here, this... More

So we found this place just round the corner from the Holiday Inn - but that's another story. I run a food tourism business so choose my words carefully and accurately. Especially seeing the scathing review by Mathew. Greeted us ok - looked a little sheepish... Food was great. Really!! Came on 11 minutes. They really want to do the... More

Wow! I am not sure exactly where to start. I think I should probably start by saying that no such incident actually occurred!!! I am not sure whether you have got the the wrong establishment or whether this is a malicious attempt at damaging our rating (something that is unfortunately becoming quite common). Lets entertain for a moment that what... More

This place never fails to please. The food tastes great with plenty of meat in all the dishes. The staff are extremely helpful & more than happy to help you decide if you are unfamiliar with any of the dishes. Lovely atmosphere, always a relaxing meal.

Ordered a large no of dishes for delivery. When I order a chicken biryani, I expect chicken and rice not loooooooots of rice and some very tiny amounts of chicken. I feel trip advisor is not as useful as used to be and will try and put more reviews myself to help make more informed choices in the future.

We are not perfect and are prone to... More

Wish the decor and furnishing matched the quality of the food. But sad to say this restaurant is neglected in the decor and furnishings that look dirty and very old and worn.

I have known Taj for 22 years and his food is as beautiful today as it was when I was 14yrs old. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants great food, friendly service. Well done Taj for giving your customers many years of a true taste of India. Love Gemma McDonald.
