Longest FAMILY owned restaurant in prestwick

Our story

Welcome to the heart and soul of culinary excellence, where tradition and innovation blend seamlessly.

Our journey began in the summer of 1981 when we first opened our doors as Taj Tandoori. Helmed by the visionary couple, Rabinder and Gurdish Singh Uppal, and supported by their dedicated wives, Deisho and Rani, Taj Tandoori embarked on a mission to bring the flavors of India to the beautiful town of Prestwick. For over four decades, we have proudly stood on the bustling Main Street, etching our name in the annals of Prestwick’s history as the longest family-owned restaurant. Generations of patrons have graced our establishment, and it is their love and support that have nurtured our growth and inspired us to become a beacon of authenticity and taste.

The years have witnessed transformations, and with the passage of time, we have evolved into Taj Bar & Kitchen. Embracing change, we have revamped our interior, breathing new life into our space while preserving the essence that has endeared us to our patrons for so long.

As we invite you to our revamped bar, we now offer an extensive selection of premium spirits and an array of expertly crafted cocktails, elevating your dining experience to new heights. We take pride in facilitating nights to remember, where laughter and camaraderie flow freely, and memories are etched in hearts.

Our journey would be incomplete without the unwavering dedication of our talented and loyal chefs. They form the backbone of Taj, relentlessly pursuing culinary excellence and creating masterpieces that tantalize taste buds and awaken senses. Their passion for innovation has led us to introduce new and exciting dishes while keeping the traditional classics close to our hearts. Without their expertise, Taj would not be the culinary destination it is today.

While change is inevitable, our core goal remains resolute – to offer you an unparalleled gastronomic journey through the vibrant and diverse flavors of India. We take immense pride in the legacy we have built over these years, and we promise to continue delighting you with incredible Indian cuisine that will stand the test of time.

At Taj Indian Restaurant, every dish is a labor of love, every flavor a celebration of India’s rich culinary heritage, and every guest a cherished member of our extended family. We welcome you to join us on this extraordinary voyage, where tradition meets innovation, and the spirit of India comes alive on your plate.

Thank you for being a part of our story. Together, let’s savor the taste of timeless tradition and the excitement of new beginnings.
