Best time to go is for their lunch buffet

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... read more

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

We love going to Tara and always appreciate the way they spice up the food for us. We only go with Wagjag though, otherwise, I think it is too expensive for what it is. The wine selection could be better too (higher end) - that I don't mind paying for!

We dine at Tara every couple of months and usually order the same dishes as we really enjoy them. Once again we have enough leftovers for tomorrows lunch. It was early on a Friday evening and at that point there were not many guests. We did notice several boxes of orders being prepared for delivery as well as some patrons... More

I found the prices somewhat high. The meal was for two but they brought one soup to share and only one piece of naan bread. For the cost of these two items, it makes no sense not to have enough for two. It was the worst butter chicken I've ever had but the rest of the food was good. I... More

I made reservations for 8 ladies for dinner. The owner came to take our orders. I explained that some of the ladies had not eaten at an Indian restaurant before and asked for his assistance. He curtly said all the food was good and just to order - no assistance or suggestions. He was incredibly rude and abrupt taking everyone's... More
