Down in Oban for the weekend from Aberdeenshire. Decided to go to the Taj Mahal as it was the closest to our hotel. Glad we did. Went in about 6pm on a Friday tea time so the place was fairly quiet. The staff, the owner and one of his waiters, were very polite, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The... More

Having come home for Christmas we decided to got one the Taj for a catch up and a curry. Friendly service with great "healthy" portions. I would recommend a visit if you fancy an Indian when in Oban. Thanks folks.

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.
