I work in the high tech industry and have had many meals at Indian restaurants throughout years of working with many people who have come from India to work in the US. So on a recent business visit to Montreal, I was a little surprised when my US colleagues suggested an Indian restaurant -- but before long I understood exactly... More

Picked this place because of close proximity to hotel and TA's reviews. We were treated to a fabulous meal complimented by great service.

While on business I passed this restaurant many times and the name of the place enticed me. Asking a few colleagues their opinion they told me that it was one of the more upscale Indian cuisines in the downtown area. So, I decided to try it. As I was dining by myself I had to order everything al la carte... More

I had never tried Indian before Le Taj, and I am a total convert. Le Taj is my favourite restaurant in Montreal. The food is just amazing. I have never been disappointed there. The samosas, the naan, the sauces--everything is sublime. I have eaten at many other Indian restaurants since discovering my love for Indian cuisine, and nothing compares to... More

Line up at the door .... Food was incredible. Mixed vegetable starter had pakoras made exactly right...mulligatawny soup was excellent, sheik kabobs were spicy, with just a... More

We went for a business lunch, everyone opted for the buffet. Service was excellent, and due to our 12pm reservation we were seated right away. Variety of buffet items isn't amazing but the flavors were good. Also nice to see the naan bread being made fresh. Overall would go back but would want to try the a-la-carte for something more...

This is our second time at Le Taj. Coming from Vermont we often feel as if we want to get food we cannot get (that is excellent) in VT. Le Taj feels refined and the wait staff is extremely helpful. My wife is gluten free and they were very knowledgeable about celiac and what she could and could not eat... More

I use to go to the Taj for lunch, their lunch formula is great. The choice is not huge but the quality food is always there. The service is perfect. I tried it twice for diner, it s more pricey but the food is tasty and the setting is very nice. I love the place.

We went there for a Sunday lunch. A self-service Indian buffet. Prices were with a correct quality of foods and deserts. However, the choices are limited to up to 10 foods and it is not really various.

We loved Le Taj. I am not a huge fan of Indian food but the chicken soup and the vegetarian chick pea dish were so delicious that I returned twice. The service was also excellent and it was super close our hotel. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Montreal.
