Having eaten here last year and having had a first class experience I took my wife in as we were in the area. We went for the meal for 2 which seemed good value. Kebab was very nice but the pakora consisted of fish pakora, mushroom, fish and yet more fish ! Ok if you like fish pakora !
The mains were a different story altogether ! I had the tandoori masala (hot) and my wife had the korma. Both were tasteless, bland very very salty and not even to the standard of a supermarket meal deal ( which is not very high if you haven't tried one )
The toilets ...well the less said the better in case you are eating !
Trying to get the bill was not easy but eventually one of the girls who were all standing about "allowed" us to pay and to be honest we were glad to leave.
Disappointing all round and won't be back

Best to book in advance if its a weekend evening, this restaurant has been around for a good few years now and has won various awards Bobby one of the owners is always there to welcome you back and knows everyone, decor been refurbished not long ago and very nice with loads of atmosphere the menu is extensive I always go for a Shami Kebab as a starter followed by chicken tandoori but the curries are all good you are spoilt for a choice really, only comment is that the curry sauce tastes all the same more or less a bit too much emphasis on tomatoe as a base, my opinion on that one, if you want a good meal at a reasonable price, the staff are mostly young and are all pleasant so you would want to give them a tip, be careful the tips are all taken from them and kept by the management so tip very discretely away from the prying eyes of Bobby.

This restaurant continues to improve from an already high standard. I would single out the Tapka chicken starter and the Chicken tikka Jatti for special mention, but the whole very extensive menu is excellent for both quality and presentation. We are always made to feel very welcome, service is consistently excellent, and the management is always willing to prepare dishes to the customer's particular likes. We consider ourselves fortunate to have the Taj in Prestwick!

If you're looking for a great meal with friendly atmosphere, then the Taj is the restaurant for you! I recently visited with my family and was greeted warmly and immediately seated. Huge variety of authentic Indian cuisine! There's also a more Western variety for those who enjoy the taste of home rather than foreign foods. Service was very quick and staff very happy to help. Food was brought within about 15 minutes of ordering and was piping hot. Very good meal, enjoyed it a lot! Will definitely be going back! It's cheap enough to visit regularly! Definitely worth a visit, you're missing out if you don't!
