Restaurant of the Month

Taj Mahal, Swindon, UK

To be brutally honest it's no the place you'd visit because of its location. It's situated in the Shaw Ridge Leisure Park - home to Cineworld cinema, tenpin bowling and fusion bar chinese buffet. Unfortunately you fear it's like any other leisure park - rubbish food because they don't have to try too hard. But we'd heard a lot about the Taj Mahal and I must admit to being pleasantly surprised. The staff were very pleasant and the restaurant very tidy, clean and well presented.

The Taj Mahal does't have a website but does have one or two good reviews. The menu was impressive. The nan breads were a little tough but the variety, quality and quantity of the main dishes was very, very good. The onion bhaji was enough for two but we had that and the mixed kebab. We followed with Peshwari Chicken (very mild), Chicken Jal Massala (vindaloo hot), both from the House Specialiaty menu. We also added bhindi bhaji, cheese nan and paratha. The massala was one of the hottest dishes I've had for a long, long while. Almost couldn't finish it!

We'll be back. Great food, tidy restaurant and very pleasant staff.
