About The Royal Taj

The Royal Taj stands out from the crowd of Indian restaurants in Blackburn with food that is of superior quality. Formerly known as Sylhet Restaurant, the new and improved Royal Taj can still be found on Whalley Road in Langho, just a stone’s throw from Langho train station. Once you’re seated in the sleek and stylish restaurant, on the menu are all the classic curries you would expect, as well as some Royal Taj specialities that go beyond the norm. Recommended is the shahee with tikka chicken and minced lamb, as well as the fiery, onion based shandla. Langho is lucky to have The Royal Taj, so go and let the team spoil you. You won’t be disappointed.

We ate at the Royal taj last night Sat 4th Nov,. From the minute we arrived we were looked after, they helped us to choose from menu, were very attentive nothing to much trouble. As for the food absolutely brilliant the best Indian meal we have had. Portions were enormous, they gave us a doggy bag as we couldn't finish it all. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back. Thank you for a wonderful meal and service

I was travelling with two colleagues one of whom was celebrating a birthday so we wanted to eat good food in lovely surroundings and we got this at the Royal Taj. The welcome was warm and the staff went the extra mile to make sure my Guide Dog had a comfy space to sleep in. The food was excellent and we were spoilt for choice with the extensive menu covering classic and modern cuisine. We will definitely be back.

If you aren’t local it’s easy to find and has ample car parking. Spacious inside and not overcrowded when busy. Staff are friendly and attentive, food is fantastic and having tried other local restaurants the portions are generous. Myself and my wife had a great evening and will be back with our extended family.

At the royal taj it was very welcoming. The service was second to none. The food was the best Indian food I have ever had, the attention to detail was amazing. I don't think I will go anywhere else again. It was amazing

Pleasant service on arrival. Starter portions very small at the price point. Balti with crushed chillies and garlic was excellent and possibly one of the best restaurant curries I've eaten. Wine list very reasonable. Restaurant dining room lacks atmosphere even on a Saturday night. Would return if the main dining space was altered and made less of a barn type environment.

First visit to the Royal Taj and we were not disappointed. Fantastic service and food. Mentioned that I normally always order the same thing and the manager suggested a similar alternative which was excellent.
