Decent food, similar to most other Indian restaurants, but this stood out as being a bit spicier than normal.
I started with an onion bhaji, I always like to have one at a restaurant that I have not been to before or for a while as a sort of standard to compare against other restaurant, there were two decently sized, with a nice crispy exterior and a moist interior. So they got a thumbs up from me on the onion bhaji front.
For main course I had the lamb pathia, this came with pilau rice. I like a pathia, generally it is just zingy enough to leave a pleasant tingle in the mouth. The Taj's pathia was a bit hotter than I am normally used to, it was good but very spicey and the jug of table water was much appreciated.
My wife's dansak was also a bit hotter than we normally expect, but again very good.
The only down points were that the popadoms were slightly on the stale side, we were the first evening customers so they may have been left over from the lunchtime trade, and a cola that we ordered was flat, but this was replaced without any fuss.
The front of house guy was also great, very friendly.
All in all a good restaurant, but be prepared for a spicy meal.
