As Bournemouth’s first and longest-standing curry house, Taj Mahal is a household name among the towns curry connoisseurs, drawing in spice seekers from all around the town to its location over in Westbourne, for both lunch and dinner. Taking time-honoured recipes and giving them a creative twist, Taj Mahal’s menu has something to suit all tastes, no matter what your preferred level of spice is. Some of our favourites include the sylheti (shredded tender chicken marinated in yogurt, spices & garlic, cooked with onion and green pepper, fresh spices, paprika, cumin, turmeric, tomatoes, pickles and Worcestershire sauce) and the classic bhuna massala. You’ll find Taj Mahal located on Poole Road – to guarantee a table, making a booking in advance is recommended.
We were celebrating our Son's 16th birthday. Excellent service. No waiting for drinks or starters. Food was excellent. Thanks to all the staff at The Taj Mahal. They also helped us serve a cake we took in.
The food was excellent, and although really busy the service was really good. We were a party of 9 and all of the meals were served at the same time and all hot in temperature. The staff were curteous but also very friendly and had a laugh with us. Overall i would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and we will be going yet again.
This restaurant has been one of my favourites for 40+ years. I have no hesitation recommending it to others. For sure we'll be back again!
