More hits than misses.

We have been regular clients of this restaurant for years, occasionally to dine in but mostly to take out. Favourites are their onion bhaji, Tandoori chicken and shrimp, and my personal choice - chicken dhansak. At times, a little too salty and spice level not always consistent but we keep coming... read more

We went for lunch and were really disappointed to see there was only a buffet. after a talk with the waiter, we ended up being able to order from a menu. when the food finally came, i was disappointed to see the lack of spices. the meal wasn't bad, in fact i think i would have liked it if it...

Makhani Daal = 5 stars Naan = 5 stars (Taj Mahal) Thali Plate = 3 stars because non of the thali dishes tasted more than average. I had way better thails before (in India and elswere) So in total 4 stars. The food I spoted at other peoples table looked very good too by the way

I have lived near this restaurant for a long time but have never eaten here. A close friend recommended it, so my wife and I went to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious and very well prepared. The service was attentive but not overbearing. I chose the Royal Feast for one and had enough for lunch the next day.... More

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.
