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

We had dinner on September 21, it is nice cozy little Indian restaurant with modern decor. The location is few minutes from the waterside. If you are sitting facing the road you will see the lake. In my option, it was bit overly price. If you order a curry/meat/ dish, you also have order rice or naan separately. I guess... More

I visited Tara for dinner with my mother and her sister who are both in their 80's. All three of us enjoyed our meals. The decor is nice, the chairs very comfortable and the staff welcoming and helpful. I was especially impressed with how easily staff were able to suggest minor adjustments to dishes to make them vegan for me.... More

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!
