“Good food”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I have been there half a dozen times in the past years, the food is good but could have been better. Try to avoid weekend evenings, the service can get a bit slow and maybe the food is better when the chef is not in rush..
Chicken madras is my favorite, always have it with egg rice + naan. For appetizer I recommend onions they serve it with really good souce.

TIP: Student discount 10%!

“Stunned by last review....”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Davidsquash was here only a couple of days before me. In his review he claims to be a curry expert and rated The Taj Mahal as one of the best Indian restaurants he's been in! Whilst I don't doubt his sincerity, I doubt he has therefore been to any Indian / Pakistani restaurants in the post-industrial north or midlands of England. The decor is fine, but the curry is (admittedly only on one visit) unimaginative and more like spicy gravy mix than a well balanced blend of flavours. I guess there only being the one curry-house in town doesn't mean they have to try hard, whereas, in places like my home town of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, where there are dozens, the quality of food is far, far superior

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We are experienced eaters of Indian and seek it out every country/city we travel. This restaurant certainly was at the top end of things.

The appetizer (Onion Bhaji) was different from what we would have expected, but other than that, everything we ordered was a variation of something we had had elsewhere.

It is a gorgeous building for one, the sauces were well crafted and full of flavor and overall value, taste, was very good.

of our 20 or so Indian experiences across the world, we slotted this one at 3 or 4.

“Music blind”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

They must be music-blind in the Taj Mahal. They put on some musac, "Don't let the sun go down one", but then 3 times in a row. No one seemed to mention until we told them not to use the repeat button. This didn't turn the right way. We got some very intense and frantic indian music that didn't increase my appetite. The food was mediocre not to say pretty poor, not made with heart nor soul. It's true that there are hardly any eastern restaurants outside Budapest but better skip this when you are used to good Indian food.
