“First visit to the Taj Mahal Spice- a lovely surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

During our stay with our son in Whitchurch, we have had several delivered meals from the Taj Mahal spice since it opened. On this occasion we chose to go to the Taj Mahal to have a meal in their restaurant. This is a beautifully decorated restaurant to a very high standard. We are early birds so there were only a couple of tables occupied and so to be expected service was excellent.
The food was very good with a wide selection of starters including a good range of vegetarian dishes and main meals. I favour the tandooris of which there is a nice range of choices. The set meals are very good value for those on a budget.
highly recommend a visit, you will not be dissappointed.

“Excellent food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Went with friends for the first time and was impressed. Be warned we couldn't finish our mains and will share next time. Naan bread was the size of a pillow and peshwari rice was the first time I'd tried. Shashlik, jallfrezi, lamb gosht all really good and tasty. Previous reviewer who said not tasty or spicy - unbelievable - I like spicy food and the Jalfrezi was lip numbingly hot. We normally go to Nantwich but will definitely be visiting again.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Abdul really runs a first class indian restaurant, easily the best in the area. We eat here approximately once a month and rarely has there been anything negative about our experience. One point picked up by another reviewer and which I share his views on though. Starters sometimes arrive at table on the lukewarm side of cold. Otherwise, I can do nothing other than heap praise on this place. So impressed I pursuaded my wife and family to have Xmas lunch here. Great atmosphere that day and we'll be looking to do the same next year.

“Massively disappointed - Twice!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I've been to this restaurant twice for family gatherings and both times been let down. The food came out and was lukewarm, the taste of all the food was bland and it had no definitive "kick" to it (I ordered a Madras and wife ordered Vindaloo). I was told this was the best Indian/Tandori in Whitchurch by relatives but shall definitely not be going back anytime soon.
