Although very good food, the prices are ridiculous

We felt rushed, then ignored. The dishes were flavorful. We have eaten at countless Indian restaurants across Canada, mostly B.C. - and in England. This one did not warrant being so expensive. We were not offered Papadams. Main dishes were more sauce than meat.

Buffet Lunch at Tara was a great value...the ability to taste many dishes in a quiet tasteful atmosphere... Service was great...nice to actually dine at tables with linen table cloths... It's conveniently located in down town Barrie.. I hope if your inclined to try something different, venture into Tara and enjoy!

Me and 4 other ladies ate here and it was amazing! 4 of us ordered one of the combos and our vegetarian friend ordered one of the rice dishes. It looked and smelled awesome. The service was good but not the best and the washrooms were very clean. I believe the saying where if the washrooms are clean the kitchen... More

Do not know why I have not reviewed this place before? I always enjoy eating here, but confess it has been a while. Went on Saturday night with my husband, it was quite busy, but we were greeted right away and found a nice table. The menu seemed different, and we opted for a combo, something we had not done...

This unpretentious & well-established venue is a favourite for simple Indian fare. I would regularly go for the lunch buffet, which for the variety, is quite well priced. The naan is fresh, and the curries not overwhelmingly spicy. For the uninitiated in the wonders of Indian cuisine, this is a good first restaurant.

I've been to Tara Indian Cuisine before... but that was long, long time ago. Probably before tripadvisor was up and running! Anyway, BarrieLicious is up and running, so we, a group of four of us, (two couples that is) decided to try it out. It was cold outside, but nice and warm inside. The restaurant was busy, so probably a... More

Good Indian food. Have a lunch buffet available. Life cited number of gravies and base sauces. 2nd best Indian restaurant but pricey. Their Tarka daal is nice and thick and vary spices to your palate. Nice atmosphere
