Ordered from the menu on line, for 4 people, due to the size of the order, we added up the cost, so we could go half's, after ringing the order through, was told the order would e ready in half an hour. we then went to collect the food, only to be told once we arrived that the order was going to be over 12 pounds more than we had worked out, from the website, only to be told by one person, they didn't have a web page, and another saying prices had gone up, showing me the new menu, but even with the new price guide, it didn't add up to the overcharge, they were trying to put on us. all I received, during this time, was 2 men, talking between themselves in Indian, and being very abrupt, seems like this time they had been caught out. we did not resolve the issue, and when without, not being prepared to be ripped off

Everything about it was bad the rotis were somewhat like a pizza base baked in a tandoor not even near to how Indian tandoori rotis r. Chicken tikka was total disaster and so was the garlic chicken tikka.
Dont even think of asking about mint sauce as their version is not even 1percent near to what it actually is.
Making fool of pepl by faking Indian cusiene.
Won't advice.
Better to go for fish n chips or pizza shop under the columba hotel. If u want only Indian food then coriander restaurant is worth a try.

Went there last week,having driven past it earlier in the day.
Have to say that from the outside,it doesn’t look particularly appealing,but don’t let that fool you because the food is delicious.

My partner had the chicken tikka masala which was fantastic. I had a Lamb Balti,which was absolutely lovely.

If you are in Oban,which is a pleasure in itself,you fancy a curry,you’d be silly not to go to the Taj Mahal. You won’t be disappointed.

We found the Taj Mahal whilst staying in Oban and visited for a curry. I have to say the visit was exceptional and I couldn't fault the place!

Whilst the outside of the building is quite unassuming, the inside is very nicely decorated and spacious.

The service was excellent, speedy, informative and genuine.

The choices were very good and reasonably priced.

The vegetable madras I had was the best curry I have ever had!

If we venture back to Oban we will definitely visit again. I can't recommend the place enough.
