Lovely food, portions size small to medium

Well I went here at the beginning of August 2015 to meet a friend who was on holiday in Mach. The atmosphere was excellent, the staff really friendly and a generally nice feel to the place. We ordered 5 meals, with the usual breads and rices. The meals were excellently cooked, flavours... read more

Nice clean restaurant and very good food. Service a little slow but worth the wait. Reasonable choice of alcohol

Drove down today from Criccieth to Machynlleth for the Wednesday market that we know well. Decided to eat at the The Taj, where we have also been previously. Place appeared to be in darkness but on trying the door we found it open. A pleasant young man was just finishing vacuuming but told us to come in and quickly found... More

I am local, and the quality of food here is getting worse. Watery dhal, poppadoms that taste of stale oil, and a massive price hike over the last year. Takeaway prices are becoming steep, £45 to feed me and three children. No more, I'll stick to Borth from now on.

Great staff, very helpful and an interesting menu ( Some dishes new to me, despite enjoying Indian food for 30+ years) apparently recipies brought from Birmingham by the family when they migrated to west Wales.

Realised that if dont write a review for this quickly I will forget all about the experience. That unfortunately is the problem. The food was fine, the service was fine and cleanliness fine. Nothing bad to report but nothing outstanding either. If in Mach again and really fancy a curry I would return as no other choice.

Not a restaurant I would recommend for it's decor or atmosphere, but the food makes it worth it. The Chicken Tikka Masala is absolutely delicious, and the vegetable dishes were fresh, well cooked, and tasty. We liked it so much we went back - in the same week! Definitely worth a visit. And the waiter taught the kids how to... More
