Another delicious meal at the Taj with family. Enjoyed their specials - Himalaya lamb and chicken dishes and green masala chicken curry was great too. The staff were friendly and attentive. All 8 of us cleared our plates and had a great meal, Would recommend to anyone who enjoys Indian food.

Passing by, this restaurant smelled delicious. Maybe they have good food, but it seems a bit of a crap shoot as 2 of 3 of our party were displeased with their meal. Oh well, blame us for not knowing what to choose, BUT... There is no excuse for the staffs intrusive, unhelpful, unfriendly, and argumentative demeanor. Let me explain. As... More

Popped in for a meal last Thursday evening with my wife and son and didn't expect to get a table. Very friendly, attentive staff, the place is spotlessly clean and we only had to wait about 10 minutes for our food. Big portions and absolutely lovely - I honestly think my Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi was the best I've ever had.... More

We were looking around for a restaurant that would seat seven people without a booking as the place we'd booked was closed for some strange reason. We found ourselves at the Taj Mahal just as two guys were leaving saying it was the best Indian they'd ever had. That was all the persuading we needed so we went in and... More

Wonderful food. We are on holiday in Penzance and often dine out for curries at home in the West Midlands. This curry was the best ever. The service was excellent, food wonderful and has been one of the highlights of our holiday. Will have to return to Penzance to revisit The Taj Mahal.

Lovely welcoming staff, nothing too much trouble to make you feel relaxed.Nepalese cuisine unheard of in my Welsh neck of the woods, (Curry, chips and cheese as preferred dish du jour) so Momo dumplings were delightful. A member of staff advised me on cooking them myself. Spoilt for choice on expansive menu. Cost for two including wine and beers less... More

Needed a good Indian Takeaway the first night of our holiday and a quick search on TripAdvisor brought this one up. Happy to back up the great reviews - food was top notch, made within half-an-hour plus a bottle of red wine thrown in for free.

My funniest experience yet, I called for a take away to be delivered to my house, when it arrived we put it on our plates and every mouthful was so disappointing. The onion bargies were flat!!! Like they were sat on, each bite was so dry and tasteless, I honestly couldn't believe this is how you make onion bargies. The... More

We've been going to the Taj Mahal for years. We love the different flavours of Nepalese cooking. There is an extensive menu with a range of flavours, spices and heat. The Nepalese beer compliments the food. Service was fast, efficient and always friendly.
