We chose this restaurant because of the wonderful setting, right next to the river, and the dinner meal deal. The food was ok but the restaurant was very cold and empty. Going up to the first floor to the toillet there was a terrible smell! Its a pity because the food wasn't bad at all.

My wife and I visited New Years eve- we were the only patrons. Cold empty restaurant- overpriced, small portions of sauce requiring explorations for the meat content. I've had better cheap takeaways. He even expected a tip! In a word- Terrible

Wish Id have read reviews of this place before visiting last night 28/12/2016 Potentially a really lovely restaurant - potentially being the key word !! Firstly, as previously reported - poor 70's décor all resplendent with bright lighting just to kill any atmosphere at all. We attended on a very cold evening at 9pm - only 1 other couple in... More

Mrs had tandoori chicken @ £9.95 and there was 4 slices of chicken with a few thin slices of onion. Rice was ok - but was £4..!!!!... More

After struggling to get a table at a couple of other favourite restaurants we thought of the Taj Mahal where we've had a nice meal before. It was pretty quiet when we arrived with only two other tables occupied. Seeing the mixed reviews on here I can see why. However our meal was very nice. We had poppadoms and pickles,... More

Food was excellent but there was only one other table occupied so there wasn't much atmosphere. Needs more publicity to bring people in as the food is great and the service excellent

This place was so bad it was laughable. I visited with friends on a Saturday evening, the pace was empty but we just assumed as it was gone 11pm we'd missed the rush. It soon became apparent why no one wanted to eat here. Decor. This place sports very tired decor, and is dirty. I don't think they own a... More
