We've eaten here 5 or 6 times but this is my first review on it.
We were a family party of 7 including an 81 year old having her first curry restaurant experience .
The food and service was excellent as it always has been, service very friendly and helpful.
Do give The Taj Winterbourne a visit.

Sad to report the Taj has sunk to "average" in our estimation.

We wrote a review of the Taj Brasserie at the end of 2012. Having just moved to the area we were excited to find an Indian takeaway that offered such food. BUT.... (please read on)

We are vegetarians, so can only judge on the non-meat dishes. During our first few months here the veggies dishes were superb. Not just some onion and potato in a brown sauce.. they put in real FRESH vegetables and each dish was distinct in its look, texture and flavours. We have been really happy to have a decent size takeaway about once a month.

HOWEVER we have twice had takeaways in June 2013 which in which the food was no better than a below average Indian takeaway.

Maybe there's been a change of chef?

NOW the paneer curry and Jalfrezi are just the same brown sauce with a few extras thrown in (paneer chunks in one and green chillis in the other). Both were mostly onion, like LOTS of onion, and a couple of lumps of potato.

Very disappointing and certainly not something to get the taste buds going on a Friday night.

Please Taj Brasserie (if you read this) - what has happened?

(note: We were so sad at this decline, we wanted to send them feedback direct to let them know they have somehow ruined their reputation.. but there's no email or feedback link on their website)

The Taj Brasserie is the best indian restaurant i have been to. The food is always amazing, they have a great selection to choose from. The staff are friendly but not too over-bearing like they can be in some indian restaurants. The decor and atmosphere is nice, it is recommended to book a table as they are always busy......a sign that people love the food.

One of my favourite restaurants. Always welcoming and great service.
Food is quite conventional selection for british indian restaurant but it is very good nonetheless - not as hot as some so if you're one of the 'hotter the better' brigade you may be disappointed. Quality, taste and presentation is very good.

I attend this restaurant so often all the staff in there know me and are so friendly.

Its my favourite restaurant because the food is just amazing. I am yet to find a different indian restaurant that tastes better.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, always polite and as I said AMAZING food. A little expensive but its expected when eating such great food.

Highly recommend :)
