Small Indian restaurant in Owen Sound that serves very good Indian Food. We had the dinner for two, where the meal is brought out in traditional copper pots and you serve yourself. Only seats 16, but take-out is available. I would definitely eat here again when I return to Owen Sound. Owner/server was very friendly and obviously took pride in... More

I don't live in Owen Sound but, every time I am there, I try to stop in to the Taj for a bite to eat. The specials are always delicious and well priced. I love the little pots of chai tea. We recommend it to everyone who expresses an interest in Indian food.

Well located, small, seemingly clean, decently appointed place with little parking options. We bought dinner Mid June 2014, price above average and with food taste average. Staff was nice.

The food is good and came in large portions. The owner, Miah, is originally from India but has lived in Canada for many years. He is talkative and seemed genuinely happy to speak with everyone in the restaurant. At $12 the dinner special was a great value and there's a small selection of local craft beers; if I return to...

My husband and I LOVE the Taj Indian Restaurant in downtown Owen Sound. We are Indian food fanatics and this is one of best casual dining/take out Indian restaurants we've been to in Ontario! My husband is from London, England and they really know their Indian food. This is the one take-out food I would bring home and serve to... More

We were on our way home and stopped in Owen Sound for dinner. We tried 3 dishes, a vindaloo, a korma, and a vegetarian dish loaded with chick peas. All 3 dishes were great! The man who owns the place is very personable and friendly.

Ate here from the lunch specials menu. Good portions, with good flavours without being too spicy (I like mild rather than strong flavours). The happy, chatty owner was welcoming and helpful. The restaurant has a slightly dated decor and little atmosphere at lunchtime. We later discovered that The Taj has a good reputation for take-outs. Definitely a place to go... More

Ate here for lunch while visiting Owen Sound. We happen to love the flavors and spice of the food from India and have found the Mr. Miah has the the right touch. We have also eaten at his old location in Toronto and were excited to find his new location in Owen Sound. His portions are very generous and flavors... More

Lucky to have the Taj right across the street from my office. Take out last night was the best Baighan Bhurta I've ever had. Ridiculously awesome veg pakora I could eat every day!

My son and I decided to drop in and check the Taj out. It is a an unpretentious restaurant with a decidedly 70's decor. The proprietor recommended the lunch special ($8.95) chicken curry. It almost felt like he wanted us the prefer the special as opposed selecting from the menu but we took him up on his recommendation. Voila! In... More
