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.

Our first visit to the Taj Mahal in Buxton and it definitely won't be our last. The venue was very busy upon our arrival but we were invited to take a seat in the waiting area whilst our pre-booked table was prepared. The staff were...very courteous and our drinks/food orders were taken as soon as we were ready to order. The food is divine, we had poppadoms and a chutney tray to start, then I chose my favourite vegetable madras, whilst my partner opted for the tandoori mixed grill. Prices are very reasonable and the food is top quality. 5 stars! Would recommend booking, especially on the weekendMore

We had tried to call here for a takeaway Friday evening, but at 9.45pm the doors were closed. So we tried again Saturday evening and made sure we visited earlier and ordered for a later pick up time. The restaurant was full to bursting, lots...of people waiting for tables and appeared a little chaotic at times, but we were finally served and agreed a pick up time. The food was very flavoursome.More

A nice restaurant serving good food. My husband and I booked for 5.30 though the staff wanted us to eat later, this wasnt an option as we were going to the theatre. We turned up expecting it to be busy due to the conversation when...booking, however the place was empty! We ordered popadoms, two starters, two mains and two sides. When the starters came my husbands was wrong, they brought a plate if mushrooms not the mushroom puree he ordered.(this was subsequently replaced) The mains and the rest of the meal were very nice, though we did feel rushed( in and out within an hour) When we asked for the bill it was brought and the waiter informed us that if we paid cash he would reduce it by 10% which we found strange!More

Great Indian for the family. Food was flavourful and staff attentive. No long wait for food or drinks and great for a simple meal whilst we were away.

It’s passable but certainly not the best Indian meal we’ve ever had . We were staying at the Buxton crescent and normally we go to the Indian restaurant near to it but sadly it has closed , so up the hill we trekked . The...greeting wasn’t overly friendly and the waiter seemed slightly put out that we didn’t want to be seated directly next to a large group of men who we feared may become loud once they’d finished their meal ( we turned out to be correct in our concern , they were deafening!) this wasn’t helped when the waiters stood right next to us whilst we were eating our meal shouting over the top of the already very loud crowd to each other . Ouch my ears !!! . The food was passable but certainly not amazing , we won’t be walking up that steep hill again that’s for sure . I think there are better alternatives in Buxton to be honest .More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Lovely staff, very helpful and the food was lovely. I would say it’s the best Indian we have had in quite a while. We will definitely be back.

Chicken tikka came sizzling and was gorgeous. Garlic chilli chicken to die for. Rice Nan poppadoms all lovely. Two Cobras and a Dal. What’s not to love. Service was also excellent.

Was staying in Buxton on business and needed somewhere to eat with colleagues. Chose here on a whim and so glad we did. I had my usual lamb bhuna and it was amazing, so much lamb and sauce was so tasty. Everyone at our table...spoke about how good their meal was. Staff were so friendly, attentive and keen to please. Gutted this isn’t my local, if it were I would be here all the time! 100% recommend.More
