Had not been to the Taj Mahal for quite some time and decided to book a table for dinner last night. The food as always was very good and the staff friendly. The only drawback was the wait for our food to be served. A large portion of the restaurants business is carryout and home delivery and this would appear... More

There's Indian Restaurants which create stunning gourmet Indian dishes each uniquely flavoured to express the best of real Indian cuisine. Then there's the basic Indian serving up slop which far too many Brits think is great food - Welcome to the Taj Mahal - certainly grouped into the slop category even though their advertising states "Quality without Compromise". I heard... More

Lovely Indian Food - whether you like mild or spicy dishes. Garlic chili chicken very tasty and spicy. The nan bread very nice too. Been to this restaurant a number of times and always enjoyable. Nice pleasant staff too.

A group of 6 of us dined in tonight. The service was extremely poor and slow. We had to ask for more menus as only two was given out. Staff paid us no attention and we waited an hour before our dishes were served. I was abruptly corrected for pronouncing one of the dishes incorrectly. I don't mind being corrected... More

Typical small restaurant. Somewhat surprised when the waiter volunteered that we had received fresh popadoms and not stale ones! Not sure whether he was after a tip; but my tip to him would be to be a bit more respectful of newcomers. Food OK.
