Cracking curry - great flavours, good portions, fast friendly service

Tried this place on spec on a Saturday night on our weekend visit to Buxton. And all six of us were impressed. It was very busy when we arrived at about 8.30, but we were fine to book a table for half an hour later and have a drink in the decent pub next door while we waited. Table ready... read more

Here for wedding brief exposure but poor service and bad drinks makes this worst experience of our visit to buxton.would walk a bit and find better Indian Restaurent. Centrally located so tempting to go here but avoid it.

The taj mahal gave me the best curry I've had for a while. The onion bhajis were delicious and my chicken pathia tasted beautiful and had a nice spicy kick. My partner really enjoyed her tikka massala also. I would recommend the taj mahal.

I arrived for a meal only to be told there were problems with the kitchen and it was takeaway only. I turned to leave and was subjected to a volley of abuse by the staff member, who seemed to think I had made some judgement on the establishment when in fact I hadn't breathed a word. I was sworn at... More

Visited the restaurant at around 9.15pm on a Saturday evening. As you would expect it was very busy so we had to wait 10 minutes for a table to become available. We were served drinks fairly quickly but then they seemed to forget about us and it took over 20 minutes before our food order was taken. When the food... More

A nice varied range of flavours, plenty of options to choose from. Staff were helpful to explain the more unusual menu items.

I have been using the Tax Mahal for a few years now, mostly take-a-ways but some sit-ins as well. I've always found the food and service to be very good. Not the most exciting menu but all the usual favourites are there. I am not however a fan of the decor (personal opinion of course) and it can be a... More

Visiting Buxton for the weekend with friends we had plenty of choice of restaurants. We decided on the Taj Mahal situated on the Main Street. We had some reservation as Indian restaurants tend to vary considerably. However our fears were groundless. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the food was reasonably priced and excellent. The mains were very large... More

booked a table for 8 o'clock, we turned up about 15 mins late, the guy on the front desk was extremely ignorant, and apart from the food and one member of staff this is how it lasted for the whole evening we were there. When placing our food (which incidentally was very nice) on the tables the plates were placed... More
