“Getting Better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

After reading the good reviews including one from the dear boy who claims to be a local even though he's from Exeter, I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and try another takeaway. This time I was pleasantly suprised as it didn't taste exactly the same as other dishes I've had recently and was actually rather nice. It's a shame they don't throw in free pompadoms in takeaways like they used to, that was a nice touch.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We had a very nice meal in the Taj Mahal.. Food was very nice and the service was very good.. When we arrived there was one other family in the restaurant, we were guided to the table next to them. But I am a little picky and don't really like sitting so close to others.. I asked the waiter if we could move to a table towards the back, it was no problem.. If I was in the area again I would certainly return here.

“Best Indian Restaurant around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We are so fortunate in Budleigh to have one of the best Indian restaurants around – that’s probably why we’re usually here once a week! There is a lot of hype about Indian food in Birmingham, Leicester and Bradford being the best you can get in this country but, having eaten curry all over the place, this lovely little restaurant takes some beating. The owner, Mizanur, and his team are genuinely lovely people and provide the best hospitality you will get anywhere. The curries are top notch and, having now been through the menu time and time again, often now we just say “we’ll leave it to you” and out comes something wonderful. We have taken so many friends there over the years and Mizanur always remembers them when they return with us, what drinks they have and what they like to eat. He’s a true professional, charming and a lovely guy. Great chef also, as he often does a stint in the kitchen. Can highly recommend Budleigh’s Taj Mahal as a friendly, inexpensive restaurant servicing great food. It does get very busy, especially at weekends in the summer season so best to book, though they always seem to fit us in.
