We decided to come back here, but came during the week in hope of better service than last time. Quite a bit quieter so had great service from the male waiters and once again great food.
The thing that annoyed us was when we paid the bill. We left cash on the table with the bill, as you do, then started putting our coats on, the waitress literally ran to the table and took the money away (we must have looked dodgy!). We said to keep the change (and the extra we had left) and she looked like someone had slapped her in the face, obviously she didnt think the tip was big enough!
Never mind, the great food will always keep us coming back!!

We had a fantastic evening meal here the food was superb and staff couldn't do enough for us. We were recommended to come here by Lov from the Gurkha Kitchen in Exeter, which was also superb!! We will be going again!!

The Taj Mahal is now my local Indian Restaurant - the menu is interesting and slightly different to most Indian restaurants. The food is presented nicely and tastes great. I ordered a biriyani which can sometimes be quite dry, even with the sauce it comes with, but the biriyani on it's own is moist and tasty and is complimented with the vegetable sauce it comes with. Have eaten here quite a few times now and have always enjoyed the lovely dishes. The colouring of the food seems natural. Take-away service very good too. The service in the restaurant is always very good, polite and friendly and at just the right tone. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors alike.

By far the best Indian resteraunt in west Cornwall (and one of the best I've tried in the UK) the food tastes fresh! there is a wide variety on the menu and the customer service really is second to none! Definitely can recommend :-)
