Excellent for Takeaways and dine in!

The "Taj" is one of my favourite Indian eateries, also my local and I usually plump for take-away. Rarely disappointed, their chicken pakora is very good, so is the chicken chaat. For mains I usually have the lamb tikka garlic chilli which is nice and spicy. They also do a set dinner for two which... read more

The quality is always good, especially the tender lamb. The menu is very reasonably priced with a good range of food, including British food. The staff always help with advice and the service is resonably quick. Home service is usually quick, altough at busy times in can take 40 minutes. Our family often visit the Taj since the first night... More

Despite this restaurants great great reputation (was recommended by many friends), I would say it is still underrated - it's that good! I don't usually write reviews on this but after my meal last Saturday at this restaurant I felt i had to! Despite being relatively busy, the food came out just on time, with us being given a great...

Me and my partner were in the area and decided to give this place a try , We were offered popadoms with a big selection of sauces. The starters were fresh, and our mains were just as tasty. The wine was really good which encouraged us to sit in longer. The staff were pleasent and attentive, cant wait for our... More

Having recently moved to Gourock, many friends have recommended this place as the best curry they've ever had. I ordered a take away chicken curry, pakora and nan. The pakora and nan were nice. Nothing too special however the curry was disgusting. It was a whole sliced chicken breast which presumably was previously frozen and had a funky taste. I... More

Unorthodox I know but we don't really do the traditional Christmas day dinner but order a buffet style selection of food from the Taj, this year was no exception. Have been using this restaurant both sit in and carry out for a long time and have always been really happy with the quality and price.

We booked the 4pm sitting on Christmas Day for 2 adults and 2 children. We didn't know what to expect as we've never eaten out on Christmas Day. Yes, at the start of the sitting the staff were still clearing up after the first sitting, but come on give the guys a break. They are relying on the first sitting... More

I had high hopes of my Christmas dinner at the Taj Mahal yesterday but unfortunately was pretty disappointed. We were asked to wait outside until the restaurant was set up despite us only being 5 mins early for our booking. The staff seemed to be a little frantic. We waited quite a while to have our orders taken even though... More

Starting with being kept outside while staff cleared up from first sitting to being served still raw food the whole experience was hugely disappointing. In my opinion the number of people booked yesterday was far too many for the available space it was noisy, cramped, stressful and staff were not able to cope as a result. First and last time...
