We have frequented this restaurant for the past 6 years - and this particular time we felt that we just had to write a short review!
It's comfortable, traditional Indian decoration, with an elevated view of the bustling Dartmouth streets. Staff are always very attentive and friendly, service is always top drawer!
But the main reason (isn't it always) is the food! Never been disappointed in all the years we have been coming here - if anything it has improved year on year and is one of our highlights whilst visiting the area! Excellent value, very filling, and most importantly extremely tasty! Highly recommend!

Basically we messed up! We decided to walk around town & go & eat in a restaurant that we liked the look of...school boy error! It was a hot Saturday night in July, so everywhere was full. Consequently we ended up eating here. If it was hot outside, that was nothing to the baking temp in the restaurant! 1 window open & only 1 fan, which didn't reach us in its arc.
I haven't seen decor like this in an Indian for at least 25 years.
I had a pint of lager which was so flat it may well have been poured an hour previously.
We decided on just poppadoms, mains & rice due to the discomfort of the heat & the fact that we were filled with zero confidence with flat lager.
The food was fine without being great, I have to say. King prawn bhuna was fine & generous with the prawns. Chicken tikka jalfrezi ok & quite spicy.
Another couple we had bumped into earlier, also trying to find somewhere to eat, left at the same time as us & their opinion was exactly the same as ours. Very ordinary!
We wouldn't return as next time we'll make sure we book somewhere & if everywhere is full again, it'll be fish n chips outside on a bench!

The service was OK but not overly attentive. Food was pretty average and the wine menu poor if you only wanted to buy by the glass.

Had a very enjoyable meal with my wife and grown up kids and thirteen year old grandson. The Taj has a friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere. The staff are attentive and polite and give excellent service. The food is really good and from an extensive menu. My kids use the take away regularly, but this is the first family meal we have had there. Will definitely be going again.
