Good food, indifferent service

The food is always reliable, it often borders on being slightly less spicy than other restaurants but nevertheless quality is always good. The service is indifferent with the one waiter in particular always rather stern and you are often made to feel that you are an inconvenience.

This used to be a nice wee restaurant, but it's clearly had a change of ownership where they are out to make as much money by cramming as many people as they can into the space. This means there's not enough room for the waiters to move around the tables, people queuing for take away are crammed in beside the... More

A delightful almost hidden treasure on the jurrasic coast. The Taj Muhal of Budleigh Salterton near Exmouth provided delictable indian cuisine accompanied by warm and friendly service. Added bonus is it's a 30 second walk to the beach. Will definately endeavour to visit again.

We have driven from Bristol to have a curry here, but visit regularly as we have a holiday home locally. The food always looks appetising and is full of flavours (as a curry should be). Each dish tastes different, salad is fresh and we come away satisfied and often with a 'doggy' bag........... The staff have gone out of their... More

Being from Indian background my experiences of eating Indian cuisine is vast and therefore I expect quality where I dine, Also living very close and being local to this restaurant we have used it on many occasions within the last few years, I must say the food quality has fallen dramatically within the last year or so, as has the...

Well my wife and myself booked a table here while on a short break, on arrival they got the mumber of people to eat wrong which really seemed to upset them. The whole meal was rushed to the point they just throw her drink on the table and muttered something the waiter then dropped a spoon of food by our... More

Never have I been unhappy with any of my meals. All the guys are from Bangladesh and very well spoken and they have... More
