I met up with friends for a Labour Party fund raiser. The food was very good. The company interesting. And I came away with a l'iter bottle of gin from the raffle.

Had a home delivery. Waited 1 hour, that's ok they explained that. However my meal arrived "stone" cold. The poppadoms were smashed into a million bits. The chicken tikka was burnt. The pakora was full of scraps and overcooked. Inedible and went in the bin. So disappointing. Would not recommend or be ordering again

Those who 'stalk' will see previous reviews of The Taj Tandoori in my history and they read much the same way, about things getting better again and to be honest I don't write about the not so good times. We all admit they do happen in every business, but... They are back again, again... errmm, again. Saturday night and after... More

Same waiter brought me salad with red onions, sent back then... More

A year ago I wrote a review on the decline of this old stalwart that has been delighting people for over 30 years. I recently decided to give it another try. I have been missing the food I've enjoyed for so long. Our first visit was just a quickie where we popped in, had a main course and left. We... More

The classic Prestwick curry house, still going strong. When so many others have come and gone and you're still highly thought of you must be doing something right. Quality interior, great staff, attentive but not intrusive, good menu and well executed cuisine. Ticks every box!

Popped in on a Thursday night during December hoping for buffet but there was a Christmas do on so we had the teatime special menu. Good choice of starters and mains. Delicious chicken jaat pat to start with dips followed by excellent chicken tikka chasni, rice and nan. Very tasty and great value for money👍

As a large group of individuals we decided we wanted to try the Taj. We booked out the large front room and ordered everything we fancied. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding too. Great wee night.
