We've eaten here since it opened over 30 years ago and the Punjabi food is still very good. It has gone through some ups and downs over the years and a new restaurant across the road for the last couple of years has kept it on it's toes and we've enjoyed some fine food. A few months ago the place... More

Went to the punjabi night with family for a meal and thoroughly enjoyed it! Different food available to what is usually on the menu so was really different to what I had before. The starter selection was my favourite part, tried things I wouldn't pick on the menu which are now new favourites! Katie, who is only 8 years old... More

We were staying overnight in Prestwick and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to have our evening meal in the Taj. What a good choice!! Very large portions for both starters and main courses (We couldn't finish our mains). The chicken tikka had huge pieces of chicken and was very tasty. We had 2 starters, 2 mains,... More

Regularly head to the taj for an Indian. Never disappoints and portion size is fab! Have nearly made my way through the menu and yet to be disappointed and the taj have the best spicy onions ever- never tasted better. If you are lucky enough to be invited to a Punjabi night (bobby's personal invite) grab this opportunity with open... More

The Taj frustrates me as this place has bags of potential to be the best, sometimes the meal is fantastic and great service other times it's can be terrible.

We ordered a carry out on Sunday 28th December,and even though we stay well outside Prestwick the order was with us within 1 hour. The consensus of my family and friends was that the food was as...

From walking in to walking out by far the best service I have ever had in any restaurant. The selection of authentic food was spectacular the smell from the kitchen as you are shown to your table is out of this world and when it's presented to you words can't explain the masterpiece that has been created. As you can... More
