Trip advisor asks "is it one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant" the answer would have to be no BUT..It is very good! & without doubt well worth a visit if you want to eat out in Gourock and fancy Indian food.

Monday and Tuesday the buffet is available and it is the best value and provides variety. I ate from the menu and my family ate from the buffet. For a non-meateater, the selection on the menu is limited. The buffet had only one non-meat option. Service was a little slower and aloof but it was sufficient and the food was... More

My family and I have been going to the Taj for years now whether just the family or with friends too. The service is always great, with the staff being very friendly and attentive. The food is delicious. A personal favourite curry of mine is the chicken tikka Nashilee. All of those are reasons we keep going back - excellent... More

Turned up early on a Saturday night having tried several other places and been turned away - so bit concerned they had space. Shouldn't have worried as this was the best Indian I've had for years. Many dishes I'd not come across before - one in particular was a sublime combination of lamb, spinach and tomato. Will definitely come back... More

Was visiting for special occasion although have been numerous times before. This place has seriously gone downhill. After pre booking a table for 9.15pm we turn up only to be told they've had walk ins so could we go for a drink elsewhere and come back when our table is ready. Ok, fine we did, after we were told they... More

The Taj as its known locally is by far the best restaurant in the area. The staff are friendly and informative and the food is top notch. The pakoras are excellent, however can ruin the main course as the portions are huge. I visit the Taj quite a lot and I've never had a bad meal. I have also had... More

Extended family dinner. I had to photograph the Nan bread to Show my local Indian what a Nan bread should be. All the dishes first rate. I cannot comment on price as my "rich" Canadian cousin paid. It does not look great from the outside but the food and service are first rate
