Dinner while in the area on business. Good and varied menu with quite a few dishes I haven't come across before. Starter Seekh Kebab was excellent as was my main Chicken dish. Mushroom rice was ok but mushrooms not cooked enough. Service all excellent and friendly. Will visit again I'm sure.

We visit the Taj Mahal regularly as a couple or with family and friends for the last 2 years. We are always very impressed with the service and quality of their food. Nothing is too much hassle and we are always greeted with a warm welcome. I always recommend the Taj to friends and work colleagues. We look forward to... More

We visited this restaurant last week and were very impressed with how delicious the food was. We did not have to wait long for our meal even though the restaurant was fairly busy. The staff were very polite and and the surroundings were beautiful. We will definitely be coming back!

We recently ordered a delivery take away from the Taj Mahal in Westbourne after a few years. My family and I used to eat at the Taj Mahal for many years until a few years ago when the food quality dropped. After receiving a leaflet through our door with a discount via their new app, we decided to try it... More

Let's face it we are spoiled for choice when it comes to Indian restaurants but this stands out from the crowd... The décor is authentic, the service is friendly and efficient and the food is excellent; especially dishes from the Tandoori oven.

I don't get to go out much with baby twins but since having access to the Taj website and app they have made it even easier to order as they deliver. They have the best chicken tikka jalfrazi I've ever had. Nothing compares. Will not go anywhere else for an Indian. The whole family come here!

I wanted to treat friends and family to my favourite indian cuisine but not being local, my sister recommended we get from here. I was very pleased as the food was lovely. Big order and only one dish was wrong but it really was no problem (vege rice instead of lemon rice) but we did order about 15 dishes and... More
