We used to love the Taj takeaway but just having had another poor one - we will be going elsewhere. We even started picking it up rather than having it delivered as it was hanging about for hours. Asked for 4 popadoms got 2 - portions meagre with tasteless sauce - naan rubbery and cold. Sorry sit in may be... More

We're all going to have to be one hundred percent honest and accept that The Taj has been in "a dip" for a wee while but what a year, everything but the kitchen sink has been flung at them. Standards did suffer... Well I'm pleased to tell you that best efforts have been renewed but firstly let's clear a couple... More

The taj were advertising a tea time special 2 courses for £9.95 so we decided to try it out. Our first impression was very poor as we were 'welcomed' by an older lady who appeared to be part of the family of owners. It was a bother for her to sit us and she only gave us the main menu... More

We are on a sponsored cycle ride around the uk and spending the night in Prestwick. We went into the Taj and ate. It is excellent. You can tell they only use the best ingredients and the food is expertly cooked. Currently trying to work out how to come back here again.

Once again, a great meal had and yet to be disappointed with the place! I've been going for years now and will be going for many years to come. I have recommended many friends to the Taj who are now regulars, and are in agreement with me that they have never had a nicer Indian meal anywhere in the country.... More
