Taj Mahal is centrally located, with some reasonable options (Banquet Menu recommended with 3-4 half-size dishes, rice and naan for c. 17 GBp). The restaurant itself looks rather out-of-date and could use some renovation, plus the music was unnecessarily loud. But considering that the food was good and prices affordable, we can recommend it. We paid cash so we cannot... More

My wife and I were staying in the area and there are not a lot of restaurants around so there is limited choice. Despite the large number of negative reviews about the Taj we decided to give it a go and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and compares favourably with a lot of other Indian restaurants. The... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by 3 members of staff who all looked miserable and really looked like they didn't care Ordered pompodoms and chutneys . When they arrived they were cold and greasy, Food... More

We were a party of 9 guys who dropped in late on a busy Friday evening without a booking. The restaurant was able to organise a table if we waited 10 minutes, so we retired to the pub across the road for yet another beer! Table was quickly set up and we settled in, the extensive menu carried all of... More

Very good, lovely food, nice décor, only downside was wanted to pay by card, he said cash only, strange, was not warned of this, luckily had the cash. Wanted to give tip, had to wait for whole bill to be rewritten, to accommodate tipping, odd, just these points of issue, but would return.

Have ordered take away from here twice whilst camping nearby, the food is always hot and delicious and will definitely visit again when in the area. I can wholly recommend the Patia and Madras curries

Tonight we had our dinner at the Indian restaurant Taj Mahal in Machynlleth in Wales. We have been there years ago on our holiday and remembered the good food in those days. So with expectations we gave it another try. We have not been disapointed tonight. The vegitarian korma and the chicken madras with the sidedishes rice and vegatables were... More

It was a very wet Tuesday evening and there was only two other couples plus my husband and myself so there was no atmosphere. We ardered our food, Chicken Biryani and Lamb Jaipur and we both enjoyed our meal. We also ordered a bottle of cider and pint glasses were brought because 'these are all we have'. Two girls were...
