I've been here many times with family and friends. I've never had a bad experience here and the party's that attended with us have left feeling the same way. The pashwari (spelling) is the greatest!

Living in a large city like Glasgow, you'd expect to find at least one Indian restaurant that offers good food but in fact there actually isn't!

Fair enough it's a Saturday night before Xmas it will be busy. After a hour and a half and still no food I called the Taj who assured me it 5... More

Recently 8 of us tried the Punjabi night at the Taj and it was fabulous. The whole experience was enjoyed by all present. Bobby and staff couldn't do enough for us and the food was superb. Many thanks to all involved for a brilliant night.
