Great Indian place. The quality of the food was brilliant, maybe the best Jalfrezi I've ever tried. The inside was average and a bit cold. Waiters were friendly and helpful, but they could give some hints about the amount of food that came to our table. Would love to come back!

Visited here at the weekend and both myself and my husband where welcomed into the restaurant by a very lovely older gentleman. For a Saturday night the restaurant was very quite. A younger gentleman with a thumb ring came over and we proceed to ask him questions as we wanted to enquire if they could make a South Indian garlic... More

Been there during my trip to Oban. Of all the restaurants I visited this place has the most unwelcoming waiter(Indian looking dude). Condescending and no service what so ever. Avoid if you can.

Visited September 2016. Chicken tikka was tasteless, and the garlic naan was indistinguishable from a plain naan. Disappointed because last visit 3 years ago was superb. The other dishes also lacked spices.

The staff are lovely in here. They offered me a free drink while I was waiting and gave me something to read. Food was very good and we would go back again anytime.

Best Indian food out of India. Always a delight to eat here whether eating in or takeaway. I bring my family and friends whenever they come to visit and they always agree how great the food is. Lovely, friendly staff. I just wish you delivered now I live on Seil.

Been a few times and the food is always good, but on my last visit I felt that the Taj mahal deserved a review as the meal was excellent. Very fresh tasting curry (duck), great sag aloo and naan. I've always found the service good and friendly. Would recommend to any curry lovers.
