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.

Bellow par and won't be coming back due to food being bellow average and dated decor and front of house . Went there on a Sunday for the budget menu ,starter main and a side order. To be disappointed with a very quiet service just...after 6pm. Toilets in need of an update ,mirror was imposing when sitting for a meal . Whilst waiting for my meal I went out to look over the balcony outside and found the kitchen door open to see a very small and to be honest untidy kitchen using old ice cream boxes and reused packaging from tins of tomatoes as an ash tray bin along with front of house eating in the kitchen . The food was bland but I am used to Indian/West Asian food and I'm used to fresh herbs and spices alongside vibrant colours and the use of real saffron unlike the multi coloured rice on the menu. The only reason as to why I didn't give it a 1 star is purely as the guys managing probably didn't know any better and it was probably a decent restaurant in the past and you could tell that .More

We have used this restaurant for 20 years on and off. Recently we've ordered takeaway. Always order direct from them as the 3rd party websites add commission. The service is fantastic and the guy on the counter always uses my first name which I think...is really nice and personal. The food is really the best, so tasty and good quality, always hot. We often have our usual favourites but recently have been order the chefs special dishes and so far all have been really tasty. Can definitely recommend this place to eat in or takeawayMore

We have always found the food here brilliant and we do not mind paying a little extra for good food, after tonight’s takeaway we will be going elsewhere, every time we order food we are told we have an old menu and the cost has...gone up, tonight we purchased Bhuna special, lamb tikka masala, 2 keema nans and an extra pot of Bhuna sauce the price was £27.40 for a takeaway for 2 people I think this is just too much! Plus the tip for the delivery driver it would probably be cheaper to go to another Indian restaurant and eat in! Sorry Taj Mahal you have got greedy!More

We have previously ordered Indian food from here and it has always been lovely. Even though we have moved out of the area we ordered a meal again but it was horrible so we will NEVER eat from this restaurant again. The food was cold,...the rice was very dry, the korma was watery and cold, the onion Bhaji was dry and they never provided the onion salad mix or any sauce which has always been part of the set meal. It seems the standard of their food has definitely gone down and they have lost a customer.More
