Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

8 of us go for a curry every month, we had been going to Southsea but after 2 disappointing curries we decided to go to the New Taj Mahal (we could take our own beer). The food was amazing, the service was superb and this...is now our new Curry Club curry houseMore

The food was good enough but I was given a load of abuse from a delivery driver down the phone saying I didn't know my own address and I should know better - giving me abuse because he struggle to locate our address. When he...arrived he was shown the road sign to prove it was right but had a horrible attitude, really rude and said I ought to put my REAL address before ordering again. Completely put us off our food and extremely poor customer service. I do expect something to be done about this and some compensation provided!!More

Anyone that remembers the dhansak from the shalimar in the 1990s will absolutely love this. I'm addicted to the chicken tikka dhansak from here it is balanced and delicious. Give it a try and you will be back just like me driving over a 20...mile round trip every week for this delicious meal 👍More

I have been using this restaurant for many years and in fact they provided food for a close friends wedding. I ordered a take out yesterday and was so so disappointed. Both curries had just 4 bits of meat and the lamb was inedible. When...I phoned them to complain, they were totally disinterested. Sadly after many years of lovely meals and great service will not be using this restaurant again for take out or dining.More

We have used the New Tal Mahal for over 20 years and the quality on the whole has been consistently good. However, the curry we got on Saturday was awful. It tasted completely different to how it normally does and in fact we threw most...of it away. Just looked at receipt and it says The Meghna which is the restaurant next door. Not sure if they just share a card machine or whether the Meghna is currently cooking their orders for them. If that is the case they risk losing a lot of business.More

Have been going to the Taj for many years and always order from them, tonight my partner ordered a chicken tikka biriani and kept crunching on something and thought it was something in the vegetable curry that comes with the biriani. I got him to...spit it out only to find small pieces of clear glass/plastic. I called the restaurant and was told there is no glass/plastic used in the kitchen, I was asked how many pieces, for all we know my partner has swallowed loads, he can feel gritting bits in his mouth!! I said this isn’t what we expect and wanted to let you know as well incase you had served it to other people. I was basically ignored/not believed and told remember me next time, I was given no name, nothing offered by way of goodwill, refund etc. Shocking that they are sending curry’s out with god knows what in. Sad after about 8 years won’t be using them again. Terrible customer service, no care what’s so ever for their customers. I’ve added a picture of a small bit recovered from my poor partners mouth!More

I would say i am a regular customer having the food from here once or twice a month and normally the food quality is fantastic, however, after my food the other night i have had to write a review. The rating i wish to put...on here would be 5 stars for the food, service, value for money but i ordered a chicken curry and after eating a mouthful i noticed something wasn't quite right with the chicken. if i have any left overs i would normally stick them in the fridge for a next day treat but the chicken absolutely stunk the fridge out? i really do hope this is a one off occurrence, however, i wont be risking another meal after that experience. I hope for other visitors that it is a one off!More

This is the second time we have used The New Taj Mahal after a night out. We decided after our night out we fancied a curry but a lot of the local ones to where I live close at the same time as the pubs.... So we went on just eat and ordered a curry that was delivered promptly. It arrived hot and was delicious. I highly recommend them and will use them again in fact I'll be going there for my birthday celebrations with some friends in December 😁More

Just popped in here for a curry before leaving for a French holiday. Based on TripAdvisor reviews. Glad we did too. Based on food quality alone it was excellent. The service was nice and polite and the portions adequate. The steep stairs up to the...toilets exposed the decrepit building but hopefully all is well in the kitchen.More
