4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Service was a little slow, but waiting staff were really nice. Food was excellent and worth waiting for.

Well worth a visit; I'd definitely go again.

“Best in Exeter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten in all Of the indian restaurants in Exeter over the past 25 yrs and since the change of ownership the place is the best In Exeter. I now even order all takeaways from here and cannot fault the food. Ive eaten here over 50 times and never had a bad meal or anything to complain about.

“PROPER NAME = THE NEW TAJ MAHAL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

A friend took me for supper last week, and the food was very good indeed.

We chose Tandoori King Prawns, Shajahan Lamb, Aubergines in a specially made sauce, Okra also in a specially made sauce, plain Basmati rice, poppadoms, and specially made in the Tandoor for me - Butter Naan - a way of cooking bread I learned to love whilst in Raj. India.

Very many years ago this restaurant was considered to be the best in Exeter, sadly it then went into decline, but I'm pleased to report that under new management our meal was really super, and also good value.

The waiter was very informative, if a little over enthusiastic! Still, better that than no service at all.

The place was full and the atmosphere welcoming and convivial, and a good time was had by all.

They also provide takeaway dishes!

I would now thoroughly recommend The New Taj Mahal, keep up the good work!

“Sunday all-you-can-eat is Terrible :(”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I know you're taking a chance if it costs £6.95 for all you can eat but the buffet is really terrible. Everything is made the previous night (if not older). The chicken (all 4 meat dishes are chicken, in different gravies) has that old-meat taste, the mix veg curry is re-fried... in the end I served myself the rice and the dal on top of it and filled me stomach with it... terrible food.
