Excellent Indian Food

We ate here twice during a recent holiday in Budleigh Salterton. We have also eaten here in previous years. The food has always been excellent.

A really great place to eat. Lots of variety in the menu and all the food was cooked to perfection. The chicken biriyani would easily have fed two people and the rice portions were very generous. A nice meal with attentive staff. Will be returning again when we visit in August.

Indian food is my thing so it's wonderful to have one of the best curry restaurants west of Bristol. The chicken green massala is one of their best dishes.

We visited the Taj Mahal after seeong it advertised at our campsite. We always like to try out a curry whenever we are away and the Taj did not disappoint. We visited on a Sunday evening but it was quite busy, the staff showed us to a table by the window, it was a little warm as the heating was... More

The waiters made us very welcome. We had just completed 13 miles along the SWCP and were knac....tired! My wife has an onion intolerance and they were very helpful in providing dishes without onion. The quality of the food was very high and we had a delicious meal along with a brace of Cobras. The place was busy with restaurant... More

Visited whilst on holiday in Budleigh Salterton. Undecided as to whether to go after reading a couple of negative comments but we found they were totally unjustified. On arrival we were greeted and shown to a table by a really friendly cheery chap who chatted to us about being on holiday and asked where we were from and where we'd... More

Indian is my favourite food and I can eat it everyday, so always wary of trying somewhere new incase it doesn't live up to my expectation. We stayed in Budleigh Salterton for the weekend and couldn't go 3 days without an Indian, it's in the where to eat guide so thought we'd give it a go. The staff are lovely... More

Visited here at short notice for our anniversary while in the area. Should have booked as very busy, and after eating I know why. The most amazing food hand in hand with fantastic service. May come to Devon again just to eat here. It's a must if your in this area. Topped off by them giving us a free drink... More
