Consistently good

Enjoyed a few good meals here. Nicely appointed with linen table cloths. Well priced menu with special deals available by choosing from a selection of starters and main courses. Usually have to request a doggie bag as the portions are quite generous.

Me and a group of friends visited here last night. On first impression it was very dark, dingy, small and unpleasantly hot. We were promptly seated and in general the service was pretty good although everything seemed to be rushed which prevented that nice relaxing atmosphere you want when you go out for a meal. I was highly surprised that... More

When I... More

We were surprised and a bit worried to see so many empty seats when we arrived. The service was first class and personal, perhaps in part due to the lack of customers. We were further surprised and delighted with the quality of the food. Prices are very competitive for drinks and food so perhaps we were just fortunate to catch... More

I went to the Taj Mahal with friends. We opted for the £10.95 3-course meal. The amount of choice was Ok for the price and the food was delicious. Plenty to eat and all freshly prepared and well-presented. Drinks weren't cheap, but prices were quite clear, so that was our choice. Too full for a dessert, which is just as... More

We regularly visit this restaurant The staff are very friendly and the standard of the food is high I am coeliac and they allowed me to bring gluten free beer with me to have with my curry. The portions are generous and we usually end up with a doggy bag for next days lunch
