I know almost nothing of Indian food. Never before did I have a chance to try it. I was curious and thought a buffet would be a good start. I loved almost everything on the menu. It was full of flavour yet not too spicy. I guess they adapt it to the western palate. My favourite thing was curry meatballs... More

Great atmosphere and location however the meal itself was average. We were seen by our waiter to take our order and that was the last we say of him. There was a table of about 12 seated in our area which took up most of our waiter's attention. My husband ordered lamb and I ordered beef and both of our... More

We visited this restaurant during our last holiday in Montreal, after 13 long years outside Canada. It is the one we left, even better since it has been renewed. It is clean and the tables are well prepared. The buffet is very good and a la carte is excellent. It is not easy to find an Indian restaurant offering such... More

Wandering around after 9 pm close to our hotel looking for a place to eat we came upon Le Taj and saw people dining inside. We decided to try the cuisine as our 85 year old mom was with us and was tired. We were warmly greeted and although close to their closing time we were not made to feel... More

"indian" food for tourists. Tasteless, no spices, no ghee, no anything. nicely decorated, but that's about it.

This restaurant was very busy so I'm glad I made a reservation. We had a good selection of food. Watch out if you don't like spicy as the Vindaloo beef has a kick. All the staff were friendly. The only issue was the service was a little slow but we are on vacation, who cares!!!

This was by far the best Indian food that I have ever eaten. The menu fixe at $40 is such a great deal. You choose a soup or salad choice, an app, a main, a veg, dessert choice, coffee or tea. The butter chicken was beyond words delicious. The chicken tikka was the most moist and flavorful piece of meat... More
