Special occasion

We asked the Taj to supply a number of dishes for a special occasion and they came up trumps. The dishes were varied and suited both vegetarian and meat lovers alike. The guests loved the numerous tasty dishes and there was plenty for all. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

I made a reservation here for my boyfriends birthday and he is a big Indian food fan! We were welcomed warmly by Barrage and the food was a huge portion and so flavourful. Barrage was always checking if everything was ok through out the meal which it was! I loved the pashwari naan and butter chicken. At the end of... More

Food was great but a little pricey for lunch at $29 plus tip. Chai tea was the most authentic I have had in Ottawa so far.

Couple of us with families came to Ottawa for a week vacation from Houston, TX. Ate in couple of Indian restarenets, but food is not good. Based on the previous reviews, visited this place, though its 14 Kms from downtown. But let me tell you all, food is really amazing. My kids really liked it. All the staff including Priya,... More

My wife's friend suggested this little place, which is tucked away in a strip mall across from the theatre in a shady part of town. They did not disappoint. The place is very small and not fancy, but cozy with friendly faces. The dishes were all delicious, the food was hot, the cuts of meat were well-trimmed and tender. We... More

We had not been at the Taj for over a decade. I had forgotten how small this spot really was and how busy it a place it was. The food and service are still impeccable. A great pre movie dining experience as they can be quick and the quality is not compromised. The ambience has not changed in its authenticity.... More

I eat a fair amount of Indian food and I think this is one of the best. Small but cozy And the people are friendly. The Marsala is excellent. Naan bread yummy. Can't go wrong here. :)

We have been numerous times to the Taj for their lunch buffet and always enjoyed it but not this time. None of the food was hot and the nan were rubbery and cold. Even after a new batch came out they were not good. All of the dishes were chicken = not a lamb or beef kabob in sight. Will... More

We love Indian food and Taj is definitely a place to go for it. We have been customers for many years and we are never disappointed with what we eat. This restaurant has been in business for 27 years and believe me… in all of those years, the standard has always been excellent. The service is impeccable, staff is extremely... More
