“Not a restaurant, just do take away!”
Review of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal
Ranked #7 of 13 Restaurants in Bowmore
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

We were looking for an alternative to chips. Since the Chinese in town is just a take away and run by Non-Chinese we decided to go for Indian. The restaurant said in big letters "restaurant & take away". It would be better off just saying take away only. The decor was non-existent. The tables just had some paper table cloths. There were no drinks other than soft drinks. The food came quick, the taste was ok but not great. Even the chicken tikka masala was not truly all that good. The restaurant does not take credit cards and the waiter was not very friendly either. In fact as he was serving the food, the phone rang. And answering the phone was more important to him than finishing the task at hand. Quite disappointing but the only Indian in town, in fact, the only one on Islay it appears.

This was very quiet when visited on a late evening. It was still open where as many other establishments had closed. The owner quickly prepared what we needed for a take-away and the food turned out to be fairly good. He even offered us some free treats as we waited for the main course. Not bad at all.

Food good and good portions. Very tasty meals with plenty of meat and a good pickle tray with lots of poppadoms and good pickle tray. Service was friendly and quick. Good value for money.

Was staying in B & B in bridgeend but working in Bowmore so popped in here for a carry out. Excellent. Sat in a layby next to a Loch eating this scrumptious food. Aim to pop back in when next over in a couple of weeks. Highly recommended.

It looks a wee bit hidden with the all-white facade, but they have very good food, and a varied menu. Take away is an option.
