Uncaring - staff were more interested in dealing with takeaways that customers in the restaurant. There was a feeling the kitchen couldn't cope. Meal was ample in size but lacked flavour. We had a meat dish and also a prawn dish and both were disappointing.

A quick trip out for a curry as we hadn't been here for one for a very long time. I think I can safely say we wont be returning here again. My curry was the most unlike curry I think ive ever had in my life. The Lamb Rogan Josh was more like a beef stew. No curry like flavours... More

I've had a meal here a number of times over the years when visiting nearby on business. The service is very good, the choice of food and drinks similarly so. I cant fault it.

The Taj is still the best Indian restaurant outside of London with food done in the Bangledesh/Indian way. The king prawn with chili is excellent with a pint of cobra & the usual trimings.

Second time we've had a takeaway from Taj Mahal whilst visiting on holiday and we weren't disappointed. We had three fantastic vegetarian curries, Madras, Pathia and Dupiaza with some sides, vegetables were all soft and tasty. Probably one of the best curries we've ever had! Staff were very friendly and also recommended we try the Chef's Special Mixed Vegetarian Ensemble... More

We visited the restaurant for dinner on Saturday. The food was quite good, but not the best Indian cuisine I have tasted. Far too much red colouring in the chicken tikka masala and also too much sauce; the rice seemed rather dry. Service was fairly efficient, but the waiter got one order wrong. Probably would not return.

Still the best Indian restaurant outside of London. Food is excellent & the service is very prompt & efficient. Best food to eat is the chilli king prawn dish with a garlic nan & the obligatory pint of cobra.

A repeat visit for us and it did not disappoint. I had a fantastic madras curry with naan and rice. It was hot enough to make my mouth sing but not scream. Very busy this time but there were enough staff to ensure that we did not go wanting. Recommended without question.

Great food and customer service so pleased to have a nice local curry house. A little on the pricey side but tasty treat.
