This restaurant used to be excellent, but in the last three or four years it has slowly declined into a very poor one. We have used it quite frequently, the food is very average and is not of the quality a good curry should be. The staff are unfriendly and lack communication skills, possibly because of a language barrier.

Visited the Sunday buffet as a couple. The service was friendly, the staff very nice. Although for the second round of drinks we had to flag someone down - although this is not unusual with self service buffets! The curries were very nice, one of each level of spiciness and were replenished regularly. A small selection of sides included, as... More

There's an excellent menu comprising of traditional and contemporary cuisine balanced with a good choice of British dishes, which was ideal for my daughter who is just starting to expand on her repertoire of tastes she...

This is the best Indian restaurant in Devon, and one where we eat every week. This time we took along some vegetarian friends,who were nervous of Indian food, but loved every dish. We can highly recommend the garlic king prawn curry & chicken tikka jafrezi alond with a pint of Cobra. Excellent food & very good staff & management, and... More

Our favourite thing to eat at Taj Mahal in Budleigh Salterton is King Prawn Puri. It's a very popular restaurant and usually very busy with people waiting for take away meals.

We went here on a Thursday evening during school half-term holidays. Despite being busy they were able to fit us in straight-away. Our order was taken and we were served our food in good time. The food was well-cooked and we enjoyed our meal. Would recommend this restaurant to others.
