Taj of India

The Taj of India sits in the unit that had been previously occupied by the Indian Lounge on Cheap Street.

Having walked past this place opposite the Vue Cinema so many times since it opened in May, we eventually hopped over the threshold and on to the wicker seats for a taste of India.

We were the only customers in the restaurant when we arrived at 6pm on a Saturday, which seemed a little odd, but we didn't let that put us off and others started coming in not along afterwards.

For starters we opted for a delicious Indian fried fish as well as lamb kofta. The batter was light with a gentle kick and sat perfectly on top of the beautiful white fish. Meanwhile the kofta was moist and packed with loads of flavour.

For mains we opted for the Chicken Tikka Masala, which was described as rich and saucy with the taste of spices popping through giving this a real home cooked vibe.

Our other main course was a mixed grill, which featured chicken tikka, lamb kebab, prawn and tandoori chicken. This impressive dish also included a basket of naan bread and could probably have fed two for £14.95.

Everything at the Taj of India was spot on with ample portions at a pretty reasonable price. That was £55 for three alcoholic drinks and all of the above as well as plain naan.

We will be heading back there or even get takeaway via their website.
