If you can ignore the fact that you feel as though the waiters hate serving you, go to this fairly pricey Indian restaurant in the old part of Buxton. The service was quick but it was hard to make out what the food was as it was listed in Types under lots of headings. The waiters came too soon as... More

We booked the Taj Mahal for 10 whilst having a short stay in Buxton. They served all 10 of us quickly and efficiently, with very tasty Indian food, which all 10 of us enjoyed, without exception. Every one of us confirmed thatthey would return to the Taj Mahal if in the area again, which shows how impressed we were on... More

We had not booked a table on Saturday night so when we got there we were told 45 minutes wait, we went next door for a drink and right on time, they called us to inform our table was ready. Food was Delicious and staff were lovely and friendly

You get the impression that the quality of the food and the standard of service is important to the staff who are attentive and friendly. If you love Indian cuisine this place is well worth a...

Reviewed this place on Trip Adviser and given its proximity to the accommodation I was using, decided to dine here. As expected, the menu was wide ranging and the staff all attentive and pleasant. The lighting and features make for a relaxed atmosphere and the quality of the food was excellent. One slight quandary given all the comments about what... More

Should have realised from the lukewarm rather surly welcome from the staff that it probably wasn't a good idea to stay and eat here.but being in the catering business I can understand the pressure of being busy so decided to give them the benefit of the doubt.mistake... while waiting 20 minutes for a table we weren't even offered a drink...

Ate here with some mates last night - had to go for a pint next door whilst we wiated for a table but we hadn't booked so can't complain. I only mention it to add emphasis when I say that this curry was worth waiting for. Three mates, three different curries, chapati rice and nan - all perfect, all very... More

Standard variety of menu for an indian restaurant - i.e. massive and nothing left off. The decor modern, the staff incredibly attentive, friendly and they actually interact with you - which really does add to the atmosphere. This is the second time I have visited this restaurant, first time based on recommendation, second & most recent - because our first... More

I found myself in Buxton on business (I live in Germany) and the B&B I was staying in recommended the Taj Mahal. It's has modern, clean lines inside and a nice atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. On a rainy Thursday night it was pretty busy and lots of the patrons seemed to be regulars - always a... More

The food was swimming in oil which was really disappointing and NOT their usual standard at all. Hope they will improve asap as we like the place
