We decided to give the Taj a try & so glad we did. My husband always has the same meal when it comes to Indian food & that's a Chicken Phall plain rice & a nan & the test is always to see if they make it hot enough. A lot of places don't like to because they think you... More

Honestly the best Indian I have ever been to in the UK. We go very regularly because of its fantastic food, brilliant service and excellent value. They often have deals on too which makes it even better value. We absolutely love the peshwari naan, coconut rice and the paneer dishes, although the meat dishes are also excellent. They serve the...

I have been here a few times with my international friends from a variety of countries such as China, Nigeria, Germany, Hong Kong etc.. to name a few. This has been my go-to place so far in terms of introducing them to some good Indian food. The selection of food is great and the taste is as close to authentic... More

The above says it all, really. I am a local and regularly dine in at Taj Tandoori on a Friday night. It makes a perfect end to a busy week. The food is delicious and served punctually. The staff are very friendly; in particular, I remember the name of Sayyid, who is incredibly helpful and polite. Have dined at a... More
