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 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

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
