Great Service - Poor Food

Nice restaurant, great service, but unfortunately the food was terrible. We won't be returning, there was no flavour to the food, just heat - very disappointing.

In days gone by I have regularly eaten in this restaurant and also frequently had good "Take Away" meals from there. I admit I have not eaten their food for the last 12 months but yesterday I had a notion to have a curry meal. Imagine my disgust at the poor quality of the take out meal with which I... More

Every time we come back from our home in Australia to visit friends and family we have to have at least one Taj meal. We haven't found a better Indian restaraunt in the world yet and soooo glad the food is as good as ever. You just can't beat the chicken tikka khomal pathia it's so tangy and tasty with... More

We dined here after being told that it was one if the best Indian restaurants in Scotland. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but with a recommendation like that, it didn't quite live up to the hype. We chose a banquet meal (not my usual way to go, but there were 12 of us, so it was just easier)... More

Visited with friends and we had a couple of complaints about the food. They failed to acknowledge them then over charged us. It seems like it was being run by kids and when they finally relayed our complaint they were ignored. Probably wont here again

We have been travelling to this restaurant from Glasgow for over 20 years on and off and always found the food to be consistently good. We tend to order Chicken Bhuna and Ceylonese Chicken and they are both quite distinct and very tasty. On Saturday 8th August we were staying at a friends caravan at Culzean and decided to drive...

I had a bhuna and my wife had a dansak and both had the same taste. Unfortunately I found a large metal shaving in my curry which looked like a shaving from... More

Indian restaurant and takeaway on the main street in Prestwick. Good varied menu, very spicy food, if you're not sure about how hot your dish will be go for one strength less than you would normally! Very busy at the weekend. Good pleasant service.
