Busy place

Had dinner here on a Sunday. The place was packed which is a good sign. Service was really slow though. Waited about a half hour before finally flagging a waiter for drinks. Once we ordered our vegetarian meal it wasn't too long coming and it was definitely worth the wait. Absolutely delicious... read more

On January 30th I took my husband out for dinner, we ended up at this place as the place we were planning on trying was closed. He wanted Indian Food so we ended up here. We ordered the Barrielicous deal, easy and less complicated. We had two people who served us. One was a young waiter with little experience and... More

I struggle to give anyone a rating of terrible but it was close. The saag paneer was not actually saag paneer! Don't know how else to explain it except to say it wasn't what it was supposed to be. The other dishes were also mediocre at best. Sad cause there aren't a lot of Indian options in Barrie.

We had a very good meal at Tara. Good service but main course helpings were too large for us but we took the remainder home with us for lunch next day. The medium hot was a bit too hot for us. Naan bread was very good.

Toronto, Niagara Falls, London England, Tara in Barrie is the best ever. What else do you need to know? *Last visit was actually June 2014, but the date field doesn't go back that far. Many times over the last ten years, always consistently amazing.

Exceptionally bad service, bad atmosphere and rude staff. But their overpriced food is really delicious. Order take out if you're craving Indian, and skip the aggravation of horrible service.

Just love the butter chicken at this restaurant. Best curry house in Barrie. Newly renovated. Excellent service. A little pricey, but everything freshly prepared and worth it. You can get very mild to excruciatingly hot curries. Nan bread freshly baked and cheese in the sag paneer made in house as is the yogurt. One of Barrie's best restaurants.

I love this place. Never a bad meal and too many favourites to list! If you aren't sure, try the lunch buffet and sample away... Delish!

We were upset that the food was not as good as we had hoped. The butter chicken was not authentic and it was really expensive. The naan was hard as a rock. Couldn't eat it.
