This is our favourite Indian great food and the staff are friendly and you do not need to book. Food always full of flavor and never fails to hit our expectations, so much choice and good portion sizes.

I was very keen to try this new place out, but I was very disappointed in the food I was served. The starter, a prawn puree was so greasy I couldn't finish it, also it was very bland. My main was supposedly a hot chicken curry (well, that's what I ordered) but what I was actually was served was a... More

Ordered online around 9pm Saturday night. 1 pilau rice, 1 boiled rice 1 lamb korma 1 tikka masala And onion bhaji Called at 10:20 as I still haven't received it. Was told it was 5 mins away. Called at 10:35 and it was apparently coming into the flat. I asked for a refund and the owner said he couldn't refund... More

Stopped in while in town for a curry. Very friendly and attentive staff, catered to your wishes and questions with a smile. Curry was really decent and nicely flavoured. Rice and naan same story. It'd be great to see them expand the vegetarian menu a bit, especially as Indian food is usually primarily meat free, but I found something great... More

Saturday night curry with friends was made better with a visit here. Good service, although the phrase "not a problem" was just a little overused. Chose chicken sag masala and found it excellent. Good value and worth a visit. Pity about the state of the town at this end but don't let that put you off.

Chose to eat here because the other 2 Indian Restaurants in Merthyl had a sub food hygiene rating of only 1 or 2! Starter great as was main Lamb Balti, but main course Chicken Tikka Masala was so over populated with coconut that it tasted like a Korma and was inedible. Staff were friendly enough but No call back to... More

We popped in on a whim on Friday since we had been abandoned in favour of grandparents by our 6 year old and were 'home alone' as a result. The restaurant itself is beautiful, the chairs very comfy and you weren't peered at by passers by (even though pavement passes right by the windows). the decor and place mats, menus... More

I loved the old taj and the new premises are even better. Loved the new decor and our waitress was amazing. Food was gorgeous. Price as always was good value for money. Had the chocolate fudge for dessert which was served in a quaint glass container and tasted beautiful. Not quite the 5 stars as the restaurant was really cold... More

Went to Buffet night at Taj last week and have to say it was out of this world, plenty of choices, very friendly staff and everything is cooked fresh. Once a dish ran out the server was straight onto it bringing up hot fresh food. Everything was great, my grandmother of 80 was celebrating her birthday hence the family outing... More
