Great food, great prices

This restaurant is marvellous - very friendly staff, beautiful Indian inspired decor and last but never least, great food! I can certainly vouch for any of their lamb currys which I regularly order when visiting. The only drawback is the lack of more traditional dishes which one would expect having... read more

Never eat here service is terrible just have college students working for them they seem not even interested even the owner/manager doesn't seem interested either. We ordered a chicken chasni and it didn't even taste like a chasni the chef got the spices horribly wrong. We will definitely not be back here how this has won any awards is beyond... More

Excellent service and food. Staff were really friendly and helped entertain kids. Dishes were extremely tasty as party shared each others. From this you could tell the difference between the different blended spices. Thoroughly recommend it for a visit,

The Taj is a great place to go for a meal. Delicious food (the fish pakora is always a winner) 😊 at a reasonable price. The staff are very attentive and friendly. There is always a great atmosphere in the beautifully decorated restaurant. The Taj is a great all-rounder, catering for small and large groups and is also very child... More

This restaurant is marvellous - very friendly staff, beautiful Indian inspired decor and last but never least, great food! I can certainly vouch for any of their lamb currys which I regularly order when visiting. The only drawback is the lack of more traditional dishes which one would expect having travelled extensively throughout India - but nevertheless good food!

This is a picture of the chips we got, would never eat anything else out of here as how would a chef let a simple thing like chips come out the restaurant like this. Absolutely disgusting.

From when we arrived we were made to feel welcomed. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious and served quickly. Wouldn't go anywhere else for a curry and can't recommend enough. Best puri I've ever had. Will definitely be back.

The Taj will either provide one of the best Indian meals around or provide average or poor.... It's getting more and more unreliable. Staff are predominately school children with no continuity of learning and gained experience. Tips should be for waiting staff and as most know the young kids receive nothing.... Most customers don't leave any tips now. Last time... More

Our group arrived and were shown into the lounge area where drinks orders were taken, some of our party received their drinks, other had to wait until we were seated and reorder. We had to ask for menus and when we asked for water, we were asked would we want glasses with our water!! Unfortunately our evening didn't get much... More
