We have been regular visitors to this restaurant for quite a while now, but have not recently taken the time to make a review. When a restaurant is visited regularly it is easy to "take it for granted", despite it's absolute excellence in service and...food, which is what I have done here! So I am now confirming that this restaurant, headed by Asheesh and his amazing team of waiting staff and top class chefs is, in my view, THE most outstanding restaurant I have ever visited, which is why I keep returning!! If you live local you really should try it - if you don't live local, then make the trip to get there, it is well worth the effort.More

Curries were standard and service okay but had to put our left overs into container which given the high price, was not very good service. When i mentioned this, they said they were busy - but we were only people there. Curries tasted like out...of a jar. Wont be back.More

We have been once before and this time traveled from town out to Whitby to visit. The food is amazing and up there with the best Indian I have had and the service is very good. I wish I had left a tip for our...server. Only down side is they are so poplar with lots of delivery going out the door we had to wait for a bit but thats a good sign of good food. Thanks and see you again soon.More

Had both the Lamb Madras and Lamb Biryani. Beware of the Kiwi Hot, I can handle hot but it is really quite at the limit. I ordered the Biryani Kiwi hot the first time and it was too much, the medium Lamb Madras was perfect.

Not for the first time we have just had a great meal delivered from this restaurant. Amazing flavors and huge amounts of meat in the 2 different dishes we had served with coconut rice. Made all the better by great phone and delivery people to...complete it allMore

Amazing place for outing with friends and family. We were 14 in total. Staff recommended to start with special platter. There Paneer was so fresh and soft. Then we had variety of mains. Goat curry had an awsome texture, Lamb Pasanda was very creamy and...we had around 10 different mains And they recommended bread baskets with some garlic naan. Garlic naan are the best in town. They were quite busy with takeaways though. Keep up same work Taj team Will again see you in few months when we back in wellingtonMore

Found this place by chance and had a very nice meal here. Service was great and the food was really tasty. They packed up the left over food for us to take away ( something we are not used to in the U.K.) Would definitely...go back againMore
