Fine Indian Cuisine

This is probably the best prepared Indian food I have enjoyed in Ottawa. Very well prepared and the service was excellent. Atmosphere is very pleasant.

I have long walked and driven by this restaurant until recently when a group of us decided to dine here. This conveniently situated restaurant, offers a nice selection of tasty food, friendly staff, and decent portion sizes. We enjoyed a diversity of dishes amongst us and sure enough our group was stuffed, and could eat no more. We left quite... More

The buffet is the best part about this place. It's decently priced ($11-14) and it's all you can eat. There's a very good variety and the tandoori chicken & naan bread are incredible. If you've never tried Indian cuisine before, this is probably a good starter place for you. I wouldn't go so far as to say this is the... More

Many thanks to the manager of the Taj Mahal in the Glebe. He planned the menu for a dinner-party for 10 persons, including two vegetarians and he did a fantastic job. Not only were there enough food for everybody, but each guest had a generous portion of every dishes on the table. It tuned out to be a very well... More

We come back time and time again because the food is phenomenal (so flavourful and delicious!), and the service is so courteous and professional. Every meal we've had at Taj Mahal has been memorable, and we always look forward to our next visit!

Met friends for dinner in this pleasant and welcoming restaurant. It offers a couple of mixed-platter options. The Royal Feast includes chicken tandoori, prawn, curried vegetables, kebab, grilled lamb--a good mix of dishes. Everything was tasty, but not overly hot. A couple of items had a kick to them. Service was friendly and unhurried in a nice way.

My husband and I have been "regulars" at the Taj Mahal of the Glebe since it first opened well over a decade ago, despite the fact that it is 33 km away from our rural Stittsville home. Enroute we pass many decent Indian restaurants - some are fancier and a few are better priced - but when it comes to... More

Other than parking, there was nothing about this restaurant that we did not rave about. The decor is inviting and very clean. The menu had plenty to offer both the carnivores and the vegans in our small group. The food was delicious and plentiful. So plentiful we took several cartons home to enjoy the next day. The staff are extremely... More

I can undoubtedly say that the lamb vindaloo served at Taj Mahal is the best vindaloo I have ever had. The spice is just the right amount, very flavorful and its absolutely to die for. If you love spicy food , you definitely should try out this dish.
