Staff were also happy to help with menu selections. Food was of good quality. We had the meal for two, which we considered to be good value for... More

We have eaten at the Taj for years, and 9 times out of 10 the food is great. I would recommend this Indian restaurant as one of the best. We also get takeaways delivered, which can take more than an hour sometimes, rather long to wait and a bit on the pricy side. So we now keep it for special... More

Arrived at a dimly lit restaurant with tarnished table and cutlery, menu was hard to read due to the lighting, and restaurant needs a complete facelift. The dinner itself southern chilli curry, quite salty, which was okay but the rice was cold, disappointing ... Korma dish and Nan were great... Won't go back, and would not recommend going ....

Had a great meal for 4 at The Taj last weekend. Service courteous and efficient, plenty of good advice when ordering and the food was really good. The price of the meal was very reasonable. Highly recommend a visit if in the area.

We travelled quite a few miles to try this restaurant having heard many positive comments about it from friends and family who live in Ayrshire, and were rewarded with a very good dining experience. As we entered the premises i noted a small sign informing customers that this particular restaurant was voted the best of its type in the UK... More

Have just moved to Prestwick, thought we would give this try. The pakora ok, the main courses bland on the extreme. Having been used to the plethora of Indian restaurants in Gkasgow we were extremely dissapointed. Staff were pleasant enough, but seemed to be a carry out joint. We will not be bavk
