Visited here on a Wednesday evening, as a first time diner.
The restaurant itself is very nice - large with an upmarket decor.
The menu is large, with around 15 starters and 30 - 40 specials and main courses! I didn't look at the dessert menu. Food prices seemed reasonable.
I ordered onion bhajis, which were very tasty and came with different sauces; a vegetable jhal fry, which was tasty and had a good kick to it from the green chillies; boiled rice and a paneer naan. My friend had the sheekh kebab; special biryani (both were really nice, and a massive portion of biryani!) and a garlic naan. We also shared a Saag Paneer, which was nice but had slightly too much oil and salt. The naan breads were tasty and very filling! I'm not a drinker so ordered a pint of diet coke. I'm always really surprised at the amount charged for soft drinks and here was no exception - £2.90! Overpriced.
The service was polite and attentive, but I really don't like when staff are stood around waiting for something to do. This was the case at the Taj. The restaurant was fairly busy, but it felt that there were perhaps too many waiting staff assigned to look after each section of the restaurant. It was the type of service where a waiter 'pounces' to clear the table as soon as you finish the last mouthful of food and place your cutlery on the plate. At one point a waiter was stood under a metre away from me whilst waiting for something to do, which was quite unnerving and felt a little awkward.
I would return to the Taj, as I enjoyed the food, but I feel the service could be improved to make guests feel more relaxed.
