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... read 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

The location is on Carling across from the Coliseum Theatre. Service was friendly and quick. Large variety of choices and we noticed how fresh the selections were. Everything was well stocked. A good deal $$ for their lunch buffet. It's a relatedly small place - quite cozy. It's been in business a long time and surprising the first time I've... More

We were in a big group and were in a hurry as well. The restaurant managed to make a place for us very quickly and served us with a great speed and accuracy. The food was good, serving size good as well. I liked daal, chicken tikka masala and chicken biryani. Their mixed platter was fantastic. Unfortunately we are in... More

I visited this restaurant on Canada day along with three other friends. We wanted to go to some other restaurant seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor, but it was closed and we called TajMahal to confirm they are open. We called in advance and the Manager waited for us even after 2pm, the restaurant closes at 2pm and reopens in the... More
