After struggling to get a table at a couple of other favourite restaurants we thought of the Taj Mahal where we've had a nice meal before. It was pretty quiet when we arrived with only two other tables occupied. Seeing the mixed reviews on here I can see why. However our meal was very nice. We had poppadoms and pickles,... More

Food was excellent but there was only one other table occupied so there wasn't much atmosphere. Needs more publicity to bring people in as the food is great and the service excellent

This place was so bad it was laughable. I visited with friends on a Saturday evening, the pace was empty but we just assumed as it was gone 11pm we'd missed the rush. It soon became apparent why no one wanted to eat here. Decor. This place sports very tired decor, and is dirty. I don't think they own a... More

Overpriced and terrible food, cost over £80 for 4 people and only 2 had starters. Poor quality, small portions and strange service. Smallest starter I've ever had, no meat in the curry. Read the reviews and stay away !!!! There are loads of better places to go in York. Not a good experience and spoiled what was a good day... More

Thought we had found a good deal with the Taj offering an early bird 3 course meal deal, how wrong we were. Chicken tikka was a few pieces of chicken in a sweet runny sauce, the fish curry was a little better but what a difference it would have made if slices of onion, peppers or a tomatoes could have...

Just had supper here with my family. Very small with only one waiter hence the slow service! Only ordered main courses and lucky we didn't order starters! Took ages for the food to come and when it arrived the portions were tiny , the rice was soggy and nan was so thick and doughy. We also ordered the mixed tandoori... More
