A work colleague introduced me to the Taj and now it is a regular haunt. Always sure of a warm welcome and food is consistently excellent.

On Saturday 18th March we visited our favourite restaurant 'Taj Mahal' Westbourne. As you walk through the door, the wonderful smell of exotic spices and delicious food hit you straight away. We were warmly greeted and luckily booked a table for 2 as the restaurant was completely full. The atmosphere was buzzing. Many guests celebrating, there was a very long... More

Lots of people relaxing, chatting and enjoying great food. It was still packed when we left. Buzzing restaurant, lovely staff and a fabulous menu. Seriously, you have try this... More

Our 3rd visit to this restaurant and never disappoints - nice atmosphere,attentive staff and of course great food.Bournemouth has a variety of Indian restaurants but a short trip out to Westbourne to eat at the Taj Mahal is definitely worth it.

Absolutely ridiculous, ordered a delivery, half the food was missing, so phoned up to ask what happened, the person who picked up the phone was so rude and got angry, making it seem like it was my fault. The missing food eventually arrived and because they had not logged it on their system, we had to pay for it full... More

We've been lucky enough to live in Westbourne for 17 years now. This is our all time favourite restaurant. The staff are lovely. They always welcome us. The service is fast and efficient. They are justifiably proud of the award they received recently for their chef. Considering the length of time we have been dining there we have never had... More

Dinner while in the area on business. Good and varied menu with quite a few dishes I haven't come across before. Starter Seekh Kebab was excellent as was my main Chicken dish. Mushroom rice was ok but mushrooms not cooked enough. Service all excellent and friendly. Will visit again I'm sure.

We visit the Taj Mahal regularly as a couple or with family and friends for the last 2 years. We are always very impressed with the service and quality of their food. Nothing is too much hassle and we are always greeted with a warm welcome. I always recommend the Taj to friends and work colleagues. We look forward to... More
