Great food - we've been coming here for 2 years now, and it is amazing. My parents have been coming for even longer. Really wide range of foods. Just as nice to sit in as is the take away.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The food was great! If we are in Penzance in the future, we will be sure to stop in again!

Let me start by saying the service was lovely. They were so friendly and attentive to our needs. We didn't need to wait to order a drink every time it was empty they would ask if we wanted a refill. The food was lovely, my boyfriend had the Chicken Tikka Madras and he thinks it was one of the best... More

Popped in here from a recommendation. The staff were really on the ball to start with but as it got busier and busier things weren't as quick. We went in about 7.40 and started with the popadoms. Normally your starter would arrive just as we finish but they didn't. We eventually got our main course about 9.45. By then we... More

The Taj Mahal Restaurant is one of my favourite places to eat in Penzance. They have a wide range of delicious dishes, and have even cooked items off menu for my husband, in the past. The staff are helpful and very friendly and always enjoy a chat with their customers. It's very clean and due to its small size its... More

Very disappointed, came to Taj Mahal thinking we would check it out as we have heard good things, on a Sunday evening, ordered 3 biryanis the food took 1 hour and 10 minutes to arrive, unheard of for a curry house, the staff didn't handle it very well, just came over 2 times and stated "food is coming" with no...

Ordered a takeaway and received friendly efficient service despite the restaurant being very busy. Unfortunately some of the food was very bland - mushroom bhaji had a peculiar texture and no taste, naan bread was very heavy and doughy. My dhansak tasted as though it had a few spoonfuls of sugar in it. Onion bhajis were good though.

Nice time at the Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant yesterday. The Mahal Mixed Starter in particular was delicious and all the food was great. Service was good, although they put and extra drink on to our bill accidentally, but it was sorted quickly. We were seated very close to another couple which was a bit uncomfortable.
