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.

Superb Indian restaurant, from its decor to its menu, service and quality/price. What more can I say? We went on a Saturday night and it was full. Great to be able to take your own wine alcoholic drinks.

Used to be good, not anymore. First of all when I booked they didn’t tell me they have lost their alcohol license. Had to go to coop over road to buy some beers. Asked for a naan with starter and they refused. No reason given,...just told no. I found this bizarre and told the waiter but didn’t make a fuss. Then ordered a madras which I have ordered there for years and what they gave me was equivalent to a phal in terms of heat. Had two bits and had to leave the rest and had hiccups for 3 hours afterwards. Not sure if this was to spite me for asking for a naan with my starter, maybe I offended them by asking. Who knows. What a sorry state this once renowned restaurant has become. Half empty at 8pm on a Friday night says it all really. If you’re going to charge a premium price maybe don’t offer a basement level service. Will never return. What a shame.More

Was taken to the Taj with some friends and have since gone for our second visit. The food eas excellent and very friendly staff. The chicken was cooked perfectly, so many indian restaurants serve it really tough but this was just right. My Masala sauce...again was perfect and my wife said the same about the Ceylon. Bajis to die for. Decor is really nice and very sociable tables. Now looking forward to our next visit to introduce some other friends.Thank youMore

We used to rate the Taj highly. But not after our latest visit. In a nutshell, to save you reading further, the staff were disinterested and rarely left the counter. The manager took umbrage at being asked to replace a bad drink. And the food...was neither tasty nor hot. We arrived at 6.30 and the place was empty. As the manager passed I pointed out that my bottle of Sparkling Water was totally flat. We said it was Sparkling because it said so on the label and I'd got what I ordered. He then said that I'd opened it and poured it so I'd accepted it. And it wasn't his fault that there were no bubbles. He said if we wanted to leave that was OK. It seemed that unhapppy customers leaving didn't faze him. However my bottle was grudgingly replaced with a good one. The staff, and manager, appeared to be completely disinterested in what they were doing. They just went through the motions. It was really odd. The menu hails the great Chef Abdul. It must have been his day off. Sauces from supermarket bottles are better than those we had. We all commented that our meals were neither tasty nor spicy. And not heat-hot. It pains me to write a damning review but this place needs a wake-up call. We'd love to see it get back to what it used to be.More

Absolutely fuming ordered a curry at 6.26 for delivery was told the latest would be 7.30 so at 7.50 I called to find out how much longer it would be and was told it wasn’t ready and would be another 20 mins (I live 5...mins drive from the restaurant) the manager was so rude and told me he said 7.30-8 which was a total lie if that would of been the case then I wouldn’t have called at 7.50! No apology was given I’m Surprised they have any customersMore

After a busy week decided to have a meal out. Had been to Taj before but not for years, so thought we would try it again (was never disappointed before). No Alcohol licence which wasn't the end of the world but would have been nice...to have been told beforehand. Sunday evening, so should have been good service, restaurant very quiet. We felt more attention was focused on takeaway/deliveries than people in house. An HOUR for our main meal to arrive!! Was about 5 minutes away from paying for what we had had and walking out. Food was nice but not as good as I remember, Shozna and Poppadom much nicer and similar price. Staff ok but not overly interested we felt, the whole experience was disappointing! Needless to say we will not return. A real shame, it used to be exceptional.More

We called in on the way home and wow! The restaurant has good parking, and as soon as you open the door the service is incredible , attentive, professional but not over bearing. The restaurant is light with modern decor, and a good varied selection...of dishes on the menu. Best popadoms and dips ever! The ingredients for the main meals are good quality and the sauces superb, tasty, fragrant and not over bearing. This has now become our g to Indian/ Bangladeshi restaurant in Medway. Just amazing.More

Thursday May 5th 2022 a large group of us (20) booked an evening meal as an end of season treat for our football club. On arrival the tables were already prepared so as not to disturb the other diners (we were all well behaved of...course!). There were no restrictions as to what we could eat and left it to them to provide us with starter and mains and we were not disappointed. Starters were mixed and delicious and the mains were varied, plentiful with side dishes, breads and sauces of excellent quality. Cleaning away and delivery of servings to the table was spot on. Every one of us had our fill and thought the food was excellent. As they do not currently have a drinks licence we brought our own, which was not a problem and the staff provided glasses and helped to clear up afterwards. We could not fault anything about the evening and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would highly recommend!More
