This restaurant should be higher in the rankings

We were recommended this restaurant by several people and so we popped in by chance, whilst visiting Buxton. We hadn't reserved and even though it was early evening we thought we'd have no luck getting a table as they were all taken and the very small bar/reception area was heaving.

On a flying visit to Buxton to meet up with a cousin, we decided to go for an Indian meal, wow! What a lovely place Taj Mahal is, beautiful decor, very clean and the food was terrific, Chicken Shashlck, my choice was delicious, rest of party enjoyed their food very much, reasonable prices, but the ambiance and decor is outstanding!

We've been here for a few years on Christmas Day and it never fails to hit the spot. We were treated like VIPs and the food remains consistently excellent. The fact that the boys also run an English menu as an additional choice is testament to the kitchen's prowess. Curry for me, but great to offer those who 'don't' a... More

We were staying in a nearby hotel where staff recommended this restaurant. Initially we were not impressed by the poppadoms and pickles, they were a let down not very tasty! Starters were lovely and the mains- chicken madras was equally as good however, the chicken vindaloo didn't really taste of a lot although it was plenty hot enough! The dessert... More
