The Taj Mahal is an interesting find, set just back from the promenade. This Nepalese restaurant has a different take on 'Indian' cuisine. Five of us booked at the last minute on a busy Easter weekend. They very kindly found room for us. On arrival, both take-awayers and sit-downers mingled with slight confusion at the door.

Food is consistently fantastic and the staff could not be more helpful and nice. Book in advance as it can get busy, especially in the high season (always a good... More

We ordered crispy and delicious papadams and sheek kebab to start. The main courses of chicken Everest with crispy peppers, Himalayan lamb with curry leaves mustard and coriander and Gurkhali chicken... More

There were no other diners in the restaurant but the phone was constantly ringing for collection or delivery orders. Within half an hour the restaurant was full, it was amazing to watch. The...
