This was probably one of the worst Indian food I have had in Southern Ontario. The curries had some weird mix of spices in them and naan's were dry and chewy. Gulab jamuns were not fried properly and had loose dough at the core. To add to our misery. The owner of the restaurant was completely refusing to even listen... More

Nice quality Indian food in a city where it's otherwise hard to find. A bit more upscale than a typical Indian joint, but a great meal.

Six of us for dinner on a Saturday night during "Barrielicious" and all went well. We were greeted as if we were long lost relatives and quickly seated. A waiter was buy in a flash to take drink orders and he delivered them equally fast. We all decided to order from the special menu in effect which gave appetizer choices,... More

After being told how great this was, we were less than impressed. Having lived in India for several years, we expected the place to live up to the testaments on the walls of the place. The butter chicken was good but far too much oil in the finished product. the Bhooma beef was fabulous and the highlight of the meal.... More

Since this establishment opened we have been frequent visitors for both lunch and dinner. We have travelled world wide and tried many similar establishments and this remains one of if not the best tasting Indian Cuisine. The decor and service is especially attractive for adults. Not sure children will as impressed.

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
