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

I always enjoy my meals at Taj Indian Cuisine. They are so accommodating on food sensitivities and the level of spiciness and are able to create delicious flavours without them being too hot. I love the egg plant and lamb dishes especially. The service is always warm and the atmosphere welcoming. Their lunch time buffet is also excellent and after... More

If I told you that my Mister and I have NEVER been out with another couple on a double date here in Ottawa, would you believe me? I bet you wouldn't. But it is the God's honest truth. I was beginning to think the practice might have died out. Boy!...am I glad to find out it hasn't. A few of... More

This place is a favourite of my family's and we've been coming here for years. The food is just phenomenal. My personal favourite is the paneer curry, but I also love the vegetarian korma and the butter chicken! Naan bread and pappadums on the side is fantastic. Really friendly service. I always leave here very full, because I just cannot... More

We get takeout from the Taj all the time. Great korma, pmappadans and garlic nan and butter chicken. At pick up time the host is always friendly and warm. Every now and then we will dine in when we are catching a movie. Thanks Taj!

By far the best Indian food I've found so far in Ottawa. Prices are a bit high but justifiable by the quality.

Taj catered for over 50 people at our last weekend's Christmas party at our house and the experience was outstanding! Starting with the dynamic presence of Taj's personable owner, Indu, one week before the event to get a feel of our home, through the organisation of the event, the delivery of the food, the guests positive response and the subsequent...
