We were a family of 8 celebrating an 82nd birthday. I had not visited before although other members of the party had been many times. We enjoyed the usual poppadoms with spiced onions over drinks then shared vegetable pakora, fish pakora and special jaat paat. All were delicious and freshly made. Main courses were really good especially the Special Chef's... More

We occupied the table for over 3 hours for a lovely leisurely meal. The owner came over a couple of times to... More

Food was very good , however was nearly finished my curry and rice before the nan bread was served !!! Could hardly hear my partner at the other side of the table due to the large groups of noisy males who ruined the atmosphere. Think twice if you fancy a quiet meal with your partner.

Been using the Taj for over 30 years and the food is still excellent. The manager / owner, Perry, took time out to explain certain sauces and dishes to my daughter who had never had a meal in the restaurant before.
