“Some like it hot”

Written on: 17/05/2012 by mikebennett (1 review written)

Thinking I had already sampled the delicate and unique fusion of traditional and innovative fare served at Stevenage's excellent Taj Mahal, I was delighted to have discovered yet another culinary gem. Served on a bed of keema rice the Naga Chill Rogan is simply the most flavoursome curry I have had for a very long time. Unlike many high street 'Curry houses' the chef resists using the pre-prepared 'Mr Naga' chilli oil in this amazing dish. Instead he uses fresh Naga chillies, which when blended… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2011

I have always enjoyed the food at this restaurant and have tried the lunchtime buffet a few times (cost has increased from £5 to £6.50). However, I must agree with several other reviewers re the buffet. Firstly, whenever I visit the Taj Mahal the staff always appear surly - there are no "please / thank you" or welcoming smiles. Indeed I have a feeling of trespass. As one reviewer commented, none of the lunchtime buffet items were labelled, the rice was cold and many of the dishes very runny… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2010

The food was horrifically terrible, very expensive and we both got food poisoning from it. Curries were incredibly bland, oily and flavourless. Had Chicken makamwallah which tasted so sweet it was like a dessert. We both decided that the Asda £7 curry deal beat this curry house into the shade! Ordered and it took 1.5hr to arrive. It gets 1 star because ZERO starts is not provided as an option… Read Full Review

I own this restaurant and your review is false as we dont do a chicken makamwallah.
Obviously as a guest you dont want to show yr credentials.

Written on: 10/10/2010

I don't know if the food is good - because after an hour and a half of waiting for it (with no apologies from the staff and no sign of its arrival being imminent) - we left.

Next time we'll go somewhere else. Somewhere we can actually get food.

Written on: 22/09/2010

Don't be tempted by the £5 lunch offer as you will be disappointed. The buffet is not plentiful and when I visted there was no meat and just some runny curry sauce. The food is not labelled so you don't know what you are eating. The onion bharjis are soggy and the rice cold. There was half a poppodum going begging though but as I didn't know who had the other half I decided to leave it alone… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2010 by DavidJK (1 review written)

Have known this restaurant for years having tried all such establishments in Old Town, Stevenage and I have always considered this to be the best quality food. However, why do they always seem to have such surly, unfriendly, almost intimidating staff? My most recent visit was during a weekday lunchtime. The food was excellent but the atmosphere terrible - two of the waiters were evidently having a heated argument and after I finished my meal they claimed the PDQ machine (which processes debit /… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2010

After my last review, I take it all back as it was just a very unfortunate experience. After my review I was contacted by Murad (the owner of Taj) he was very polite and could not have been anymore helpful.
He personally delivered our food and i must say the food and the customer care was absolutly amazing.
I would definatly recommend that you either go to the restuarant or get a takeaway you will not regret it!

Written on: 05/07/2009 by simon2439 (1 review written)

The Taj Mahul truely has to be the most tasteful and amazing Indian restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of eating in (and ordering a takeaway). The tastes are soooo authentic and different to anything I have ever tasted. No other indian restaurant compares to this and that is why I keep going back (almost once a week) the downside to that is it does not help with the pocket! The staff also make for a great dining experience. 10 out of 10… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2009 by gurulover (1 review written)

The Taj Mahal, Stevenage is over priced and has terrible service. Worst dining experience of my life. I am a fan of Indian food, but this can't be classed as Indian, as it is an insult. Don't come to see what the fuss is because there is none apart from how quickly the customer can get out of there. The food was so salty and cold, like it had been cooked properly… Read Full Review

I visited the Taj Mahal for the first time in December with a company of young people. The food was lovely, with very generous helpings, and the service was outstanding and first class!!! So much so, that I have booked the restaurant for a group of 35, family and friends for an evening in February, and I can't wait!!! Thank you Taj. See you soon!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/08/2006 by lleegilmer (1 review written)

Indian food is one of our favorites and the Taj Mahal had some of the best we've ever had. The menu had the largest choice of dishes from all areas of India we've seen. We walked in around 2:30 and had great service. We were the only diners in the restaurant but didn't think anything of it since it was late for lunch. Since the door was open, we didn't think to check if they were open and no one mentioned they normally close between lunch and dinner. The only disappointment was the nan… Read Full Review
