Turned up early on a Saturday night having tried several other places and been turned away - so bit concerned they had space. Shouldn't have worried as this was the best Indian I've had for years. Many dishes I'd not come across before - one in particular was a sublime combination of lamb, spinach and tomato. Will definitely come back... More

Was visiting for special occasion although have been numerous times before. This place has seriously gone downhill. After pre booking a table for 9.15pm we turn up only to be told they've had walk ins so could we go for a drink elsewhere and come back when our table is ready. Ok, fine we did, after we were told they... More

The Taj as its known locally is by far the best restaurant in the area. The staff are friendly and informative and the food is top notch.

Extended family dinner. I had to photograph the Nan bread to Show my local Indian what a Nan bread should be. All the dishes first rate. I cannot comment on price as my "rich" Canadian cousin paid. It does not look great from the outside but the food and service are first rate

Lovely Atmosphere in the TAJ MAHAL From décor, staff and music. Food was absolutely yum, We had a mixture of curries and each one was brilliant, Lamb very tender, Garlic nan was spot on. The bill was very reasonable too. Excellent experience from the minute we entered to the minute we left. Keep up the great work guys.

I cannot express how BAD the meal was. I chose a vegetarian dhansak, which is a meal I have eaten numerous times and know what one should taste like. When my meal arrived it had large slabs of chicken in, I had asked for a vegetarian dhansak ! When the replacement meal arrived.....after only a couple of minutes, which demonstrates... More
