Dropped in Saturday night for a curry, the place was busy. Service was quick and friendly, makes all the difference when you are greeted with a smile. Decided to have the tandoori salmon starter, Lovely and as light as a feather, three big chunks of salmon well marinaded. Main course took me a while as there are so many! Opted... More

Had booked table for three for a birthday evening, we were sat at a table for 8....yes eight! Drinks were ordered but no menus arrived. Finally after 15 minutes we asked for service and a smaller table. The Waitresses did not appear to be enjoying their work, seemed to be very young, and customer interaction non existent. Tables and flooring... More

Stayed near the restaurant during our week long trip. Sat down once and ordered take away once. Really enjoyed the food, very authentic and fresh. The staff were lovely and made friends with my 5 year old son quick enough so he had a good time as well. Definitely 5 star food and staff attitude!

Myself and my wife visited the TAJ last weekend and the food was delicious. The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The host Bobby who is the owner of the restaurant was always at hand to offer advice on the extensive menu the restaurant had to offer. The starters were mouth watering and the main courses... More

I met up with friends for a Labour Party fund raiser. The food was very good. The company interesting. And I came away with a l'iter bottle of gin from the raffle.

Had a home delivery. Waited 1 hour, that's ok they explained that. However my meal arrived "stone" cold. The poppadoms were smashed into a million bits. The chicken tikka was burnt. The pakora was full of scraps and overcooked. Inedible and went in the bin. So disappointing. Would not recommend or be ordering again

Those who 'stalk' will see previous reviews of The Taj Tandoori in my history and they read much the same way, about things getting better again and to be honest I don't write about the not so good times. We all admit they do happen in every business, but... They are back again, again... errmm, again. Saturday night and after... More
