Friends brought us here recently, and we have been back just about once a week since! The food is wonderful and the service is top notch. We have been working our way through the menu and you can't go wrong with anything on it. Love the cheese and coriander naan, the house special rice, the coconut rice.....Can't say enough. My only hesitation on writing this review is that I don't want to let everyone know about this great place!!

Arrived around 22.45 to be greeted with smiles and courtesy. Starter arrived promptly, tasty and well presented. Main meal was a chefs special,again very tasty but as lots of restaurants seem to do, serve large chunks of meat (personal choice of course) I would have preferred more delicate portion. No rush and polite at all times.

This is not a run of the mill Indian restaurant, it is sublime, the food and service are faultless. The meat is high quality and the wine list has some gems (try the Muga reserva) the house wine is excellent and good value. Competitively priced, with some exciting choices not seen elsewhere, best to book for the weekend as there is a loyal customer base, I can highly recommend this restaurant.

T&J Mahal is one of those restaurants you really don't see very often. The food is beyond a doubt the finest Indian food I have eaten. It is so good that since moving from portsmouth I make the 100 mile round trip around once a month as I simply can not get a good curry in my new home town. Having tried over 20 of the local indian restaurants/takeaways none of them have come close to T&J Mahal. Josh and the team are always professional and personable, always happy for a good chat no matter how busy they are.

The food is always cooked in a reasonable time, starters usually within 10-15mins and mains about another 10-15mins after the starters are cleared. They are always happy to modify any recipe to be exactly how you want it.

Starters around the £4-£5 mark, mains from £6-£12, rice between £1-£2.99 .

Cannot recommend this place enough.

Easily the best curry in Portsmouth, high quality meat and fish used in every dish. The Goan fish curry is awesome but the best dish is the lamb gujarati. The staff are attentive and friendly, thoroughly recommended T & J
