Delicious Indian meal

We booked a table a few hours ahead having read other reviews saying it was very busy. The place was absolutely packed when we arrived at 8.30pm for our table and the front of house staff were very apologetic about the delay (caused by an earlier booking turning up late). We had read reviews about... read more

We popped in for a curry after looking at the other Trip Advisor reviews. It didn't disappoint. With great staff and great food we would definitely go again!

The only Indian restaurant at the top end (High Street) of town. Well presented, clean, fresh table cloths and cutlery. Wide range of Indian cuisines but not much on the menu for vegetarians. First visit: food too salty. Gave it another go some months later - same result: too much salt. Such a shame

We were disappointed with our meal here. The place is brightly lit up and lacks atmosphere. Most of the staff were friendly. Definitely wouldn't visit again. Maybe they are trying to hard to modernise indian restaurants all over the uk but personally we prefer the traditional ones.

Excellent very high quality curry cooked very well and very nicely presented. Good value and it became obvious during my visit that the Taj Mahal is very popular with the folk who live locally. I would recommend this place.

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

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.

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.
