If you ever head out to the wild west all the way to the end of the line at Penzance, then get along the prom and turn right at The Lugger Hotel. Just up on the left, you'll see The Taj and you will be assured of a warm welcome, drinks at the ready and time to select from the... More

Arrived in Penzance and ordered a takeaway. Lamb Korma, Lamb Rogan Josh, Rice, Naan and Popadums. No flavour especially my Lamb RJ. Partners not much better, said it was bland and that's a Korma!!Can honestly say it was like an unidentified meat cooked in a tin of tomatoes (my RJ). Is this really the best Indian in Penzance??? Well it... More

We booked this restaurant, as recommended, flavoursome food, efficient service, tables are close together but generally good value and a decent evening all round.

We ate twice on a trip to Penzance, before and after a trip to the Scillies. The first time, we got there at 10.30 pm on a Friday and although the staff looked ready to go home, they welcomed us warmly and we had a fantastic Nepalese vegetarian meal. The Dhal Samba is worth a special mention, as is the... More

We live locally and visit the Taj Mahal on a fairly regular basis. The restaurant is always busy, even midweek and out of season - local people voting their feet. I don't think that there are many other restaurants in Penzance with such steady trade and repeat customers. Their take away business also thrives and provides the same high quality... More

Great food and service. Must have been there 3 or 4 times now on various visits - never had a bad word to say about the place. Highly recommended.
