1. Excellent service 2. Amazed to find such a good selection of vegetarian food in Barrie 3. Great portion size. 4. Lovely peaceful environment to eat If I could ask one thing.. put a non alcohol beer on the menu! There are so many to pick these days all will go well with a curry....

Service, food, drinks and atmosphere are simply amazing. I have been on a couple occasions and have never been disappointed. Brought some friends in for a nice dinner and we all had a fantastic time. Chicken tikka masala is my favourite so far!

My wife and myself read so much about this restaurant that we went there for our anniversary. We have eaten at many different Indian restaurants so we are not new to the food so... We started by ordering 2 papadums and 1 order of Onion Bhaji. We received 1 papadum and 6 Bhajis. I mentioned to the waiter that we... More

If you aren't a regular you won't get very good service. My fiancé and I tried it for the first time because there was a wagjag and I have to tell you... The food was good but it was not worth the high prices and the slow and not very friendly service. It cannot be blamed on the dinner rush... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the last 17 years, the same owners have always been there and the food is good, you can easily go wrong with Indian food but these guys know how to prepare it, you won't get the same quality any where outside of Toronto. Don't know what all the bad reviews are... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant, and as we love Indian food, made it a special occasion night a while back. The restaurant is tiny, cramped and uncomfortable. It was a cold night, we were seated near the door, and we nearly froze to death. Our server was hurried and verging on rude and honestly, we HATED our... More

Tara is an authentic Indian cuisine restaurant and I had the misconception that their treatment would also match the authentic Indian Values, but sadly they didn't, I had the most unfortunate experience when I visited this place in the second week of January. The buffet food was not ready although they knew that we were expected, their excuse was they... More
