Son's Recommendation Was Excellent Choice

Our son recommended this location as being close to his residence and very good Indian cuisine. We went as a family and ordered chicken, shrimp and rice dishes. We each started with an appetizer (mine was Ahlo Tikki Chat). Each dish was hot and very, very tasty. Only one recommendation, we liked... read more

While the dining room is quite tasteful and features good service, the need entertain at home with family has prompted us to order take out from Taj 3 times in the past few months. Each time the food was excellently prepared, of great quality, very flavourful with the savors and complexity of fine Indian cuisine. Hot, ready on time and... More

Hungry and looking for a place for a fast healthy lunch. Went to this place because our first choice restaurant was busy and we could not wait. The buffet was hot and fresh, with many choices. The naan bread was ok, but not excellent. The rice was warm but ok. Curry chicken is very good, not too hot and delicious.... More

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
