Fair to middling

I went here with my partner as heard so much about it, on a whole it was good the food was excellent but the portions were a tad on the small side and the staff always seemed to be in a rush even though we were the only ones in.

Very good place to get a takeaway but not so good to eat in... You get rushed and the bill gets brought to you before you've even finished

Khan,  wanted just to thank you for your excellent takeaway meal provided for our party of 20 last weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed your mixture of starter and assorted main meals. Congratulations for you and your staff at Taj Mahal Buxton.

On a quiet Thursday night we were rushed and even when the food came items were forgotten. A starter dish ended up being the desert!! The waiter had no customer service skills whatsoever and food was "so so". Won't be going back in this place again!

My wife and i had a table booked for 8 30 and we were immediately asked to wait whilst our table was being prepared , which we did not mind due to the restaurant being obviously very busy ( which i thought is a good sign ) .. The restaurant is very small so can get a tad cramped if... More

Right from the word go we were hurried and rushed. No sooner had we sat down had our orders been taken without leaving us enough time to read the menu properly. The minute we finished our starters, which were mediocre, the plates were whipped away and the mains unceremoniously dumped in front of us. Again the food was just mediocre... More

Booked a table weeks in advance for 14 people, food was ok but the service felt like we were on a conveyor belt, took orders before all our party had arrived, great that food arrived swiftly but tbh a little too swiftly, plates whipped away no asking " have you finished, was everything ok", looks of disapproval when asked for...

Went here for a meal on a stag weekend. Food was amazing. Have to say this was one of the best Indian I’ve ever had. The service was great, we had a laugh with the staff. For the amount of food we had it was great value for money.
