Ordered a take away and received the papadoms crushed into small pieces. I ordered one spicy and one plain and received about a quarter of a crumbled spicy one. The rest of the meal was very bland and had absolutely no taste of curry at all and the Naan bread was very doughy and not cooked properly. Was a big... More

After reading the good reviews including one from the dear boy who claims to be a local even though he's from Exeter, I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and try another takeaway. This time I was pleasantly suprised as it didn't taste exactly the same as other dishes I've had recently and was actually rather nice. It's a... More

We had a very nice meal in the Taj Mahal.. Food was very nice and the service was very good.. When we arrived there was one other family in the restaurant, we were guided to the table next to them. But I am a little picky and don't really like sitting so close to others.. I asked the waiter if... More

We are so fortunate in Budleigh to have one of the best Indian restaurants around – that’s probably why we’re usually here once a week! There is a lot of hype about Indian food in Birmingham, Leicester and Bradford being the best you can get in this country but, having eaten curry all over the place, this lovely little restaurant...

My wife & I eat at the Taj every week, and it is certainly one of the best Indian restaurants around. However, reading some of the reviews, I agree that sometimes all the curries taste the same, and I have mentioned this to Raman & the Management team. This is mainly due to the main Chef moving to their other... More

I'm a local and have dined here on more occasions than you can shake a stick at. The above sentence says it all. If it were in anyway inferior it wouldn't have been given a second chance. The food is superb and is reasonably priced. Despite being a relatively small restaurant it is well appointed and has a cosy and... More

Being a local I have had several meals here, some have been good, some poor. The last few take aways I have had (chicken rezala and persian lamb) were particularly bland. I'm not sure if they have a new chef or what but there was just no flavour at all and the nan bread was soggy.

There was very little open on a Sunday evening in Budleigh Salterton, so choice was limited, but we were told that the Indian was good and I'm so glad we tried it - the food was excellent. It all tasted very fresh. Service was very good too. Would definitely go again when we're in the area.
