I visit this establishment many times, but I have to say everytime I go it just gets better and better. I would recommend the taj to anyone who has not tried this gem of a restaurant yet.....you are missing out on a good high class meal.

I'm a bit late putting this review on but I have been hanging off waiting for some kind of apology or at least the courtesy of having the cost of my carryout meal reimbursed however neither has been forthcoming so I feel I have to give a full and frank review to warn others about eating food from this establishment...

We had an overnight stay at the Carlton hotel last Friday (fab) and after looking at a number of eating places for lunch (Elliotts looked way overpriced!) were impressed with the price and choice on offer at the Taj. £7.10 for 3 courses and it was excellent value for money. Poppadoms and spiced onions were brought to the table before... More

I was visiting my inlaws for the first time. Took them to his restaurant and it did all the magic. The food was awesome!!! Best customer service. The servers were smiling and made my day. This is the first time I met my inlaws and they were happy too.

Live in Troon and usually go to an indian restaurant there, but I was on a night out with friends in Prestwick and we stopped by here for food and drinks. When we first went in the girl that came over to speak to us had clearly never heard of service with a smile... not a good first impression. We... More

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
