Always a favourite

Been going to/ using the Taj for takeaways for years! Sometimes the food can vary, but overall it is the best Indian in Inverclyde

The Taj Mahal has got a new menu with some fantastic new dishes that have got most of gourock talking! Heard from a few people that In particular a new certain lamb dish is to die for! And I can confirm that it certainly is after trying it myself! Nothing less than a five star for gourocks finest!!

i seem to be one of the few detractors. The food here is poor. There is something me thing that they use in their spices that provisions an underlying sweetness that is vile. Sister restaurant in Greenoch is much better. If you have a choice avoid.

While visiting family in Gourock we popped in for a curry and had a great time! The service was spot on , prices great and selection very good! I particularly liked the array of sauces available with your poppadoms! The curry itself was great with big chunks of chicken!! Great curry house.

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 is very reasonable at around... 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
